Clint is taking a lot of flack on the intenet over his speech, which I did watch, and I also watched very close the entire speesch again to digest it. I completly agree it was a stoke of genius and those who do not see that, only seek to discredit how powerful the messages were. Clint is 82, and this is Clints usual style of talking, and at 82 has earned the right to ramble a little. Was his rambling style, only the act of pretending to be having a sit down converstation with the President, like a normal everyday person, who hit him right between the eyes with the truth?
The story rambled about when we elected him, candles, all the crying, Oprah crying, Clint said even he cried, and than zinged it with having not cried that hard since he learned 23 Milion people are out of work. GENIUS!
All the act of "I can't tell Romney that" He was demonstrating how condesending the White House is to everyday folks, and how the treat us all like we are stupid. GENIUS!
The comments about polititions being our employees, and we all own this country. GENIUS!
Only the Democrats are putting down Clint, and the White House right away issued a statement putting him down, and making some wisecrack about referring him to Salvador Doly. Ever watch a boxing match where a guy get clobbered? When ever he shakes his head to blow it off, he is hurt bad and covering up. Thats what Obama just did with Clint.
Obama likes to flaunt Oprah friendship around, mainly becasue she is a self made billionaire. Ol Clint is a self made man too, and I'm betting isn't too far off the financial chart from Oprah.
Romney and Ryan I think are pretty energized, and Ryan as I can see it, is part of that catalyst. No, Romney is not the most eleqant speaker, but lets not forget something very important. Obama was built up for the 2008 election, by the speech he made at the 2004 Convention, when Ted Kennedy began giving his blessings to him, and he was built up as the next Democrat during Bushs second term.. All from being the key note speaker at that 2004 Democratic Convention-----and look how that turned out. This administration is a disaster, he look good, is likeable, but his ideas failed totally. But his is a powerful speaker!
Obama was unable to talk without a teleprompter---Clint adlibs his total speech, rambling or not, he spoke the truth from his heart. Clint is an American Icon, and who was first to insult him publically? None other than Obama and the White House staff.
