Hollywood tough guy Clint Eastwood took a comic turn Thursday night at the Republican National Convention, telling American it’s time to give a “stellar” businessman a chance to become president and say goodbye to the lawyer – a swipe at President Obama.
“I think it may be time for somebody else to come along and solve the problems,” he said to loud applause. “Lawyers are taught to argue.”
Eastwood’s appearance before Mitt Romney officially acceptance of the GOP presidential nomination concluded days of buzz about a “mystery guest” scheduled to speak on the final night of the convention.
“Save a little for Mitt,” Eastwood said as the crowd welcomed him on stage and before declaring: “I wasn’t a big supporter” of Obama.
The star of “Dirty Harry” and two-time Oscar-winning director jokingly said he -- like Oprah Winfrey and other Americans -- wept with joy when Obama was elected in 2008. He then turned serious, saying he wept harder at the realization 23 million people are unemployed in the United States.
Standing next to an empty chair, Eastwood then launched into a comic routine in which he pretended to ask the president some questions, and Obama telling him at one point to “shut up.”
Eastwood quickly tried to knock down the criticism that somebody from “left-wing Hollywood” could back a GOP presidential candidate, saying, “They don’t go around hot-dogging, but believe me they are there.”
The 82-year-old actor was critical of Obama’s war in Afghanistan, saying he should considered that Russia fought unsuccessfully there for 10 year. And he almost refuse to do his infamous “Go ahead, make my day” line from the “Sudden Impact” film – or at least until somebody shouted the request.
