Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell told Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren he thought Eastwood’s bit with the empty chair was a bust, but he did praise one part of the movie legend’s rambling address.
“I think, despite the shtick that may not have worked too well with the empty chair, that one line that you just saw was powerful — if somebody’s not doing the job, you gotta let them go. And I think that was Mitt Romney’s message as well.”
On MSNBC, Schmidt worried that Mitt Romney’s “fantastic” speech would “be cut into tomorrow in the coverage because of the sloppy Clint Eastwood decision.”
But McDonnell dismissed that notion.
“People don’t vote for Hollywood actors,” he said.
Too bad that isn't really true. We might not have had the Great Gipper starting us on this long slide down to the bottom. That bottom where the wealth we give to the 1% is supposed to trickle down to the 99%, but what we really get is the crap at the bottom of the shit hole.
