Eastwood Admits He Had No Idea What He Was Doing

Hollywood megastar Clint Eastwood admitted he had no clue what he was going to say in his remarks at the recent Republican National Convention. In an interview with the Carmel, CA Pine Cone newspaper Eastwood said Romeny’s campaign people “vet most of the people, but I told them, ‘You can’t do that with me, because I don’t know what I’m going to say’”.

Two weeks later, most people still aren’t sure what he actually did say.

Bill Clinton Delivers Arousing Nomination Speech

Former President Bill Clinton placed Barack Obama’s name in nomination at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night in a rousing speech that had some delegates laughing, some crying, and most cheering. In a running “scorecard” Clinton listed statistics highlighting Obama’s accomplishments contrasted with his Republican opposition, who invariably came-out with a score of “zero”.

Of course Clinton used the same suspect numbers other Democrats have used in convention speeches, such as “4.5 million new jobs” – which is sort-of but not actually true.

Ryan May Have Stretched The Facts

Some media wonks are complaining that GOP Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan may have played fast and loose with the facts in his speech to the Republican National Convention Thursday. But the Romney/Ryan campaign refuses to be intimidated, because as Mitt Romney pollster Neil Newsome said: “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers”.

Ex-New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani also spoke-up for Ryan, saying “Well, look, when people give speeches, not every fact is always absolutely accurate”. But that inaccuracy doesn’t change the fact that they are still facts.
