"It seems doubtful that Clint Eastwood made Mitt Romney's day with his speech during the Republican National Convention on Thursday.
The acclaimed actor and director, who is 82, turned out to be the much-touted "mystery guest" the Romney campaign teased this week. But rather than delivering a clear endorsement of Romney, the actor used an empty chair to stand in for President Barack Obama onstage at the RNC, and then questioned the invisible POTUS about his policies and positions...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

I don't know why Eastwood gets so much shit for this. I actually thought he was funny...

This host is quite "clever"- I put it in quotes because he cuts out the most important parts of Clint's speech, and presents only clips that degrade clint. The original speech satire is very easy to understand, yet he spins it by picking and choosing clips in order to twist the meaning; exposing an entirely different speech... Disgraceful is all.

And as I'm watching Cenk comment on this, I'm cringing.
I'm no republican but your doing the same exact thing to Clint that he is doing to Obama! And your criticizing him. And you call this balanced news. Your insane and I knew it when I heard you on JRE. Your crew is? However

Every time I see this Young Turk speak I want to punch him in the face.

Clint was embarrassing. There's a huge difference between actors like him and how Scarlett Johansson & Eva Longoria spoke or the democrats, which was moving & inspiring.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

As always, the stupid, thoughtless, inept left wing idiots are completely clueless. I would love to actually hear something come out of the announcer's mouth that was even remotely intelligent…no such luck…Clint Eastwood was clever, the moron that was commenting was pathetic...
