Clint at Tampa

Bizarre is the way most people described it.  That's mainly because Eastwood came across as an 82 year old man, not Dirty Harry.  If you watch his speech over it plays a little better. 

Anyway, the seminal moment for me came about right here...

The American government was set up by the men and women who settled America.  It was set up to ensure the progress made and ensure the 'experiment' survived, one based on a grand idea that inherent unalienable rights are granted to the individual from a deity not a man, which focused our new country on the individual as opposed to the collective. This was the greatness of America and this is apparently a nuance that Obama and his followers have a lot of trouble grasping.

It took me a minute to figure out the 'empty chair' conversation, I thought he had lost his 82 year old mind for a second. Overall I thought Clint Eastwood was great. What he said when he was talking to the crowd was exactly what they, and I, feel. His comments were supposedly off the cuff, unscripted. He was a breath of fresh air and the crowd loved him.

Unscripted, "we own this country" was so well said and subtle that I wished he would have continued his career in politics.
