Clint Eastwood granted the local paper Carmel Pine Cone the first interview since his Republican Convention splash where he used an empty chair to represent Obama and infuriated members of the liberal left while energizing and exciting members of the conservative right, but his goal was to aim for the people in the middle, he tells the Carmel Pine Cone.
Despite claims to the contrary, Eastwood is one of those "in the middle" as he is liberal on social issues and conservative on fiscal issues and from the movies and shows he has acted in since 1955, to the movies he directed and is still directing, and his box office numbers, Eastwood has always known how to appeal to his audience.
Eastwood quotes from the interview:
"President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the
and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and
that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot
of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle. "
"I had three points I wanted to make. That not
everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a
lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the
people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not
doing a good job"
"A lot of people are realizing they had the wool pulled over
their eyes by Obama."
The whole interview is well worth the read over at The Carmel Pine Cone.
