Good ol’ Clint


Good ol’ Clint. Everybody loves you, but maybe you’re just a little confused: Mr. Romney should have been in the chair at the Republican Convention, not President Obama. Consider what you said to the president:

You said: “you didn’t close Gitmo.” Sorry. Obama tried to close it. Romney’s Republican buddies on Capitol Hill stopped him.

You said: “you thought the war in Afghanistan was OK…We didn’t check with the Russians to see how did it – they did there for 10 years.” Bless your heart, you still need a script. And you forgot it was George Bush who didn’t check with the Russians before he committed us.

You said: About our troops in Afghanistan, “Why don’t we just bring them home tomorrow morning?” That’s not Romney’s position. Senator McCain and other Republicans would leave them another decade.

You said: “I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to be the president, anyway.” Gosh, Clint, don’t you even know that Romney is a lawyer?

You said: “But I think it is maybe time – for maybe a businessman.”

Let’s see, Dirty Harry: Hoover and the Great Depression; surely you wouldn’t say Carter was a great president; George Bush, well, what can we say. All businessmen.

Then there’s Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Reagan. Effective or maybe great presidents, but not a businessman in the bunch. Truman was a great president, but he went bankrupt as a haberdasher.

No wonder the Republican big guys didn’t like your performance, Clint. You didn’t make their day.
