RUSH: By the way, Clint Eastwood has spoken up in the Carmel Pine Cone, a local newspaper out there. “Eastwood Says His Convention Appearance was ‘Mission Accomplished — After a week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to. ‘President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,’ Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week.”
That’s Clint Eastwood. “Barack Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” No, he’s the second. Global warming is the greatest hoax, ’cause it lasted a long time. Global warming had a 25-year lifespan. Oh, by the way, Obama was talking to me last night. (imitating Obama) “Climate change is not a hoax.” Yes, it is, just as you are! Bill Clinton described Obama as a fairytale. And now Clint Eastwood: “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. Romney 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.” That is what Clint Eastwood said.
