Unique rousing entertaining just some of the -- -- -- described Clint eastwood's fat.
With President Obama last night and then there's this.
-- Eastwood was a disaster -- They did not that he would get up there.
And you rolled it in the end in front of the whole world like he did.
Here's -- ever seen at a political convention in my entire life.
I was at the convention and Mike Huckabee was ActiveX -- They weren't different conventions at -- this is a silly thing it wasn't meant to.
Cerebral moment where you don't have -- -- takes the stage or another governor -- that you know.
-- -- -- -- -- No I think you've got it exactly Clint Eastwood it was a surprise guest it was.
In part I think to respond to the Super Bowl ad where some people would surmise that he was right out there supporting.
You know the Obama -- out of the car companies he came back and walk and I said -- that had nothing to do that.
-- about America.
So Clint Eastwood is a great American he loves this country.
He is a conservative tends to lean a little libertarian.
He's very comfortable to go there I thought it was you know -- -- -- -- would -- you know what added for those that are would do he was not reading any script down he so we noticed the teleprompter which -- -- success.
The mind goes down this this is -- move up a little bit left the show -- -- just a up but he was known the prompter -- -- so I thought -- my -- his remarks you know that they're there and eat it.
And he was -- all the sound and it that I could -- I felt a little pain to swing civilians but what did you make of that and and whether it helped or hurt.
-- you know the people who don't like Mitt Romney and don't like Republicans hated Clint Eastwood being there the people who like Mitt Romney and who love Clint Eastwood.
And -- for the Republicans they thought it was just great and cute and fun and and kind of frankly it was the only moment in the entire convention that wasn't highly scripted -- choreographed.
I kinda like the drama the drama and the spontaneity.
So I found it entertaining.
I don't expect Clint Eastwood to come out and give.
A Ronald Reagan speech because he's not a politician he was there because it's that the celebrity that he brings and the credibility with that in the attention that he.
Right away if it but if -- he were to be doing this for Barack Obama you'd never hear.
Boo about this now duties -- -- I'm now just brilliant I guarantee you they're gonna call -- at ground they've got -- Hollywood crowd will turn out big.
Next -- -- -- -- residential terminal again you know I have a little fun with her I wanna take a look at okay -- like me here.
The only hitch in an otherwise perfect week.
Was the awful noise coming from the hotel room next door -- Turns out it was just Debbie Wasserman Schultz practicing her speech for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte next week.
Bless her heart.
If you're sitting and managed to turn axial bullets here for its -- being.
I would ignore him because he's irrelevant.
Pop pop -- woke up well she should have ignored me then.
Back up and up.
You know I don't care -- that that was it was a fun remark it wasn't intended to be Maine and -- she made one statement that -- love she says something about.
Mike Huckabee just has a problem being around strong women I think -- -- 38 years obviously you don't know who I've been married to yet match candidates yet.
So yeah I I would not mess no doubt about it -- -- that that's a part of it.
It's very thin skin off.
Very thin skin yeah you know funny guy and people say stuff about me all the time and sometimes it's even -- -- -- -- here annually but when it's -- on -- -- I'm talking about it -- it I have always -- that in politics there comes -- point you just have to say look that's part of this whole process.
And and you move on it's not not a big deal I'm flattered when someone takes a shot at me you know sometimes it'll be Jon Stewart on The Daily Show -- -- until there.
I consider that a great honor because I feel flattered that they think that was important not to mention so.
From this point -- I'll try to remember Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not important but for me to mention maybe maybe that's -- issues that come -- and -- so this weekend.
You don't know I'm not important enough to come off but it's just hope of course it will -- kept up but I look forward to design governor great job at the good.
