    Twitter Buzzing About Clint Eastwood's Speech

    Though I didn't watch the Republic National Convention last night, I missed the speech by Clint Eastwood that set Twitter abuzz. For myself, I'm quite surprised as I'm a huge fan. If you watched, what did you think; or your thoughts after reading this item:

    Clint Eastwood earned plenty of bad reviews for his latest performance: a bizarre, rambling endorsement of Mitt Romney.
    "Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic," tweeted film critic Roger Ebert as Eastwood adlibbed Thursday night to an audience of millions — and one empty chair — on stage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. "He didn't need to do this to himself. It's unworthy of him."
    Eastwood carried on a kooky, long-winded conversation with an imaginary President Barack Obama, telling him that he failed to deliver on his promises, and it's time for Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, to take over.
    "Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? I mean, what do you say to people?" he said at one point to the empty chair.
    Twitter was instantly ablaze with comments mocking the Oscar-winning director of Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    How anyone can endorse Romney and appear to be sane is beyond me. That man has a very interesting relationship with facts, especially about foreign countries such as the Netherlands.
