Clint Eastwood Speaks 2012 convention Mitt Romney Accepts Republican Nomination for President

Clint Eastwood went on stage to endorse Mitt Romney’s candidature – is he the lucky mascot who can really sway the voter sentiments in favor of Mitt Romney in the 2012 US President Elections?

The question arises because the Republicans had put the 82-year old Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood on stage to speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Clint is more familiar with scenarios like that of ‘Dirty Harry’, ‘the Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ or ‘For a few dollars more’ etcetera and his association with politics had been a brief one – he had been the nonpartisan Republican-leaning mayor of Carmel-by-the-sea in California from 1986 to 1988.

His job on the stage at the RNC was to promote the cause of Mitt Romney and seek the support of the gathering for Mitt Romney, the Republican Party nominee to the post of the President of the USA.

Clint Eastwood is an actor and loves histrionics – hence, his mock interview with an empty chair representing Barack Obama, drew peals of laughter from the crowd.

In fact he went on to say that the time has come for an attorney to leave the chair to a stellar businessman who can solve problems – it need not be spelt out who he meant.

This had been reported in of dated 30th of August 2012.

The Republicans had several contenders like Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney and it was Mitt who finally managed to keep afloat because many of the others withdrew on their own.

The present combination which is on offer for the White House is indeed a strange one – a President hopeful in his mid-60s, the VP hopeful in his 40s and a supporter in his 80s.

The President hopeful Mitt Romney has roped in his wife Ann to activate the tear glands of the women voters by recounting tales from her personal life.

The VP-in-waiting Paul Ryan is still in the dream world of a small-town individual who has high ambitions but the world is waiting for the new President who can lead the most powerful country in the world into a position of strength.

One gets an impression that the GOP is not serious about the 2012 President elections and in their eagerness to get Mitt Romney into the White House, they have not only run out of ideas but have also mixed up their priorities.

Or – are they indirectly inviting Barack Obama in for a second term in the White House?
