The Guardian said:


Oscar-winning actor and director Clint Eastwood has endorsed Mitt Romney in the race for the White House.

The Dirty Harry star endorsed the Republican presidential candidate on Friday night during a Sun Valley fundraiser.

"I think the country needs a boost," Eastwood told the Associated Press as he joined other Romney supporters for the private campaign event.

In February, Eastwood told Fox News that he wasn't supporting any politician at that time. Some saw the halftime in America ad he made for the Super Bowl as a nod toward President Barack Obama. Eastwood responded then by saying he was not "politically affiliated" with the president.

Only someone like Westwood would dare go against liberal Hollywood. Besides, what does he have to lose? He's old and has done every imaginable thing in the movie business. What are they going to do, blackball him?

I'd love to see him debate Matt Damon and then at the end pull out a .44 mag and shoot Damon just for added emphasis.

I think if Romney were a non-Mormon Christian, he'd have a much better chance.

Egads, I hate when celebrities do these sorts of things.

I've enjoyed plenty of Mr. Eastwood's movies.  He makes a great tough guy.  He's a fantastic director.

But, I honestly don't give a crap about his political preferences.  Because he is rich and famous DOES NOT give him political clout, or make his opinion any more valuable.

We are so obsessed with celebrity in our country that we allow them into every facet of our lives.

Who would you think dirty harry would endorse?  Chuck Norris also supports Republicans.  So does anyone who's been in the armed forces.  Guns = Republican.  Not sure why.

I beg to differ, not everyone in the armed forces if I may.

Obviously Clint and anyone else who does not endorse Obama is a racist.  What else could it possibly be?

Celebrities supporting Romney...

The funniest one is Brad Pitts mom!

It is interesting that Jerry Bruckheimer is a Rebublican, since he is one of the big names of Hollywood.

The odds guys were taking 4 to 1 that the ACA would be ruled unconstitutional, so clearly they don't know everything. :innocent:

Funny how when you look at it, Hollywood doesn't seem so liberal.
