There.

Ditto.

 

I'm all for people speaking their mind and all, but in that situation I could not give two pieces of cornbread about Clint's thoughts.

Ive never felt like anything but a spectator during national elections, most probably because I don't live in a swing state.

That being the case, I wouldn't be too upset of Mitt and his big money pals pulled this off and stole this election. In the long run, it may force America as a whole to reexamine the current election process sooner rather than later.

Mitt Romney in his own words: "I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it." "Roe v. Wade has gone too far." "I don't line up with the NRA." "I'm a member of the [NRA]." "I like mandates. The mandates work." "I think it's unconstitutional on the 10th Amendment front." "I supported the assault weapon ban." "I don't support any gun control legislation." "I think the minimum wage ought to keep pace with inflation." "There's no question raising the minimum wage excessively causes a loss of jobs." "I will work and fight for stem cell research." "In the end,I became persuaded that the stem-cell debate was grounded in a false premise." "I would like to have campaign spending limits." "The American people should be free to advocate for their candidates and their positions without burdensome limitations." "Detroit needs a turnaround,not a check." "I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back." "I'm not in favor of privatizing Social Security or making cuts." "Social Security's the easiest and that's because you can give people a personal account." "I'm not trying to return to Reagan-Bush." "Ronald Reagan is my hero"

This guy is somethubg else


And why woukd u want a business man as president? Businesses are about making money not morality. This guy was buying companies, firing everybody, and getting rich off misery

if you combine the first two letters of Eastwood's first name and the last three letters of Romney's first name...

Barack Obama: The U.S.’s 44th President (and 25th Lawyer-President!)

obamagrant_art_257_20081105090946.jpg

After Barack Obama’s smashing defeat of GOP nominee John McCain in the Electoral College and his crossing of one of the most formidable racial barriers the country has confronted, even harder work begins.

As Obama suggested in his acceptance speech last night, a long road lies ahead. Commentators, grasping for parallels, compare his arrival in the Oval Office to Abraham Lincoln (a self-taught lawyer) encountering the Civil War and Franklin D. Roosevelt (Harvard, Columbia law) coming to Washington amid the Great Depression.

We won’t predict his success, but we will point out that Obama’s Harvard law degree puts him in the company of our 19th president, Rutherford Hayes (Kenyon College, Harvard law), the only other president — believe it or not — to hold a JD from the Law School. Below is a complete list of our lawyer-presidents.

#2 — John Adams (Harvard, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#3 — Thomas Jefferson (College of William & Mary, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#4 — James Madison (College of New Jersey — now Princeton — then read law)

#6 — John Quincy Adams (Harvard, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#7 — Andrew Jackson (self-taught lawyer)

#8 — Martin Van Buren (Kinderhook Academy, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#10 — John Tyler (College of William & Mary, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#11 — James Polk (University of North Carolina, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#13 — Millard Fillmore (clerked for and studied under New York Judge Walter Wood)

#14 — Franklin Pierce (Bowdoin College, then studied law)

#15 — James Buchanan (Dickinson College, then studied law)

#16 — Abraham Lincoln (No formal education, a self-taught lawyer)

#19 — Rutherford Hayes (Kenyon College, Harvard law)

#21 — Chester Arthur (Union College, then studied law)

#22 — Grover Cleveland (apprenticed as a lawyer)

#23 — Benjamin Harrison (Miami University in Ohio, then studied law)

#25 — William McKinley (Allegheny College, Albany law)

#27 — William Howard Taft (Yale, Cincinnati law)

#28 — Woodrow Wilson (College of New Jersey — now Princeton — then UVA law)

#30 — Calvin Coolidge (Amherst, then apprenticed as a lawyer)

#32 — Franklin Roosevelt (Harvard, Columbia law)

#37 — Richard Nixon (Whittier College, Duke law)

#38 — Gerald Ford (University of Michigan, Yale law)

#42 — Bill Clinton (Georgetown University, Yale law)

#44 — Barack Obama (Columbia, Harvard law)

NOTE: Our 33rd president, Harry Truman, was the only president who served after 1897 not to earn a college degree. However he did study law for two years at the Kansas City Law School, now the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. We’ll also point out that Warren Harding, our 29th president, enjoyed great success as a journalist before rising to the White House, yet, sadly, never became a lawyer.

Correction: Earlier versions of this post incorrectly stated that Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Jackson were not lawyers. An earlier version also incorrectly included Theodore Roosevelt in the list of lawyer-presidents. Roosevelt left Columbia law school before graduating.

Indeed. By far the worst political speech of all-time, and by far one of if not the worst conventions of all-time. Also, the Republican party is so bad and out of touch that they have white people holding up signs saying "Hispanics for Romney". Just goes to show how low some Republicans will stoop.

That people will rally around something, no matter how awful it is, as long as the general purpose fits their beliefs. It's not a Republican/Democrat thing, you tried to tell me what I said was FALSE, that Democrats wouldn't have had the same reaction and I believe you're absolutely incorrect. Nothing wrong with debating, if you're even tuned into and have an opinion on anything political, you should be prepared for that.

It might be a little much but to me that speech is an example of what's wrong with these campaigns.

I think you're wrong. As far as I can remember, I don't recall a time Democrats have rallied around someone saying something this outlandish and off-base.

If you know of any incident where this has happened, I'd be open to listening/reading about it.

I've voted in every election since I turned 18 and I'm leaning towards sitting this one out. I don't believe in either candidate and I voted for Obama in 08, believing in his many empty promises in part because we needed someone other than George W. You can call me what you want but I don't believe McCain would've had us in better shape either plus you can't tell me choosing Sarah Palin was anything but a desperate attempt to sway voters.
These candidates don't have the best interest of the majority in mind, they just want power by any means necessary, even if it includes putting a movie star with no redeeming value on stage to make some rah rah speech.

*Rock GIF* (I'm still voting for Obama because he seems like the lesser of two evils)

I'm not saying it has happened but if the situations were reversed and Eastwood was up there in 08 at the DNC talking about G W's failures and promises, talking to him in a chair, Democrats would've cheered him there too, to think otherwise is foolish. It's not even about content anymore, so much of what these candidates state in terms of statistics and pointing out their opposition's performance are factually untrue but that doesn't prevent people from giving standing ovations as long as it's what they want to hear.

So you're not saying the Democrats have ever actually done something similar.... but you're saying IF they did, it'd be the same?

See, what I'm not getting is how you came to this conclusion. laugh.gif It's purely hypothetical. You're trying to equate these two parties as if they've done and said equally outlandish and off-base things. You see where I'm getting at? The GOP and associated conservative groups have a proven track record of flat out lying and making things up. I think to equate the two through hypothetical situations is unfair.

It's not about content? A lot of people are ridiculing Clint because of content. He was rambling and talking to an invisible chair. Come on.

And it's not just Clint. We haven't even touched on Paul Ryan and his acceptance speech. Even a columnist from Fox News (albeit their most progressive voice) called him out for flat out lying and making things up.
