At Least The Empty Chair Listened

At the Republican convention last night, Clint Eastwood babbled on for 12-minutes instead of the 5 for which he was scheduled. When it comes to political speaking, Clint sure was good in Dirty Harry wasn’t he? And who thought the chair was a good idea? As a matter of fact, who even thought Clint Eastwood was a good idea? Oh, I know!  The same guy who chose South Florida at the height of the hurricane season.

When Romney spoke, the Republicans were dancing in the aisles (like only old white guys can dance) and clapping every few minutes.  They looked as stupid as any sober Americans can look on television – until we see what the Democrats will look like next week.  The GOP is tripping over delusions of what CAN BE while the Dems have to cheer about delusions that already HAVE BEEN. The biggest threat to this election is not low voter turnout – it’s reality.

The Ron Paul delegates were not even seated at the convention. Romney blatantly fixed the rules (by voice vote, no less!) to eliminate them. That slimey move made it look like a Jimmy Hoffa win-by-acclamation vote at a 1960’s Teamster’s Convention.

I’m just writing about what I read in the media today – I went to bed at 10:00.  As an executive speech coach, I get paid to analyze speakers and speeches. I certainly wasn’t going to listen to this horseshit for free.

    Clint did look bad, but a lot of people will vote for Mitt simply because Eastwood told them to just like many will vote for Obama because Oprah told them to. I don’t plan on voting for either.

    The Republican party fed the Frankenstein monster known as the Tea Partiers, and now they’re having trouble controlling the creature. Boehner has no control over the House, and the Paul delegates promised to be disruptive at the coronation. Can’t have that; it would smell too much like democracy.

    I think it should be noted that all Ron Paul delegates, Teapartiers, Libertarians, and conservative Republicans are not the same. How do you know? Shout out “Legalize drugs!” into a mixed room and watch the fun begin. (or “End the wars!” or “Recognize Cuba!” or “Ban abortion!” or “Prayer in schools!”, etc.)

    That said, I think the dumbest thing Romney did was disrespect Ron Paul delegates. Of course they knew they weren’t going to win – just like Hillary’s delegates knew they weren’t going to get the nomination in 2008.

    But when the clowns in the “big tent” threw them out – which they did – and if they won’t now help Romney in the swing states – we might as well have an inauguration for Obama next week.

    No way in hell will any of those people sit idly by and watch the reelection of that black, Muslim, communist, Kenyan America-hater. (Not my words; theirs)

    Here’s my prediction: If Obama starts a war with Iran, he will win. If he doesn’t start a war with Iran, he will lose. We’re talking about a Chicago politician here; he will do whatever is necessary to win, and if that means another war, so be it.
