'Dirty Harry' makes Romney's day: Eastwood endorses, helps raise $2 million in Ketchum

Clint Eastwood, a part-time Idaho resident for decades, helped GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney raise more than $2 million last Friday in a visit to Idaho's Wood River Valley.

Tickets ranged from $1,000 for a reception at the Sun Valley Company's River Run Lodge and $25,000 for a private dinner, the Idaho Mountain Express reports today.

Eastwood told the newspaper he met then-gubernatorial candidate Romney while directing "Mystic River" in Massachusetts.

"I thought, 'He's too handsome to be governor, but he does look like he could be president,'" Eastwood said, adding, "I'm going to be voting for him."

Eastwood was mayor of the seaside town of Carmel, Calif., for two years in the 1980s, running because of battles with a preservation-minded town council.

Hey Obama - you feelin'

Hey Obama - you feelin' lucky? Well are ya...punk!!!????

Every time

Romney Hood opens his mouth, the President feels luckier.

How shallow

Clint, Clint, the only reason you're supporting Mittens is because he LOOKS like a President? Read your history, and you'll see that many people voted for Warren G. Harding in 1920 for that same reason, and he turned into one of the most corrupt presidents in US history.

Then not much has changed.

That may be but a lot of people only voted for Barrack Hussein Obama is because he is black and then they could say they helped elect the first black president. He also has turned out to be one of the worst presidents in our history.

Not like the one that only lasted 40+ days and died.

You fry wants with that?

Ketchum, the new Romney Hood ....

Must be nice to be Romney and do all that tax free living. While the majority of Americans express their patriotism and commitment to the goal of a fair and honest democracy, Romney Hood continually dodges his taxable responsibilities as an American and refusal to pay his fair share by hiding his assets in off shore bank accounts not beholding to the laws of American income tax.

Facts

Do have facts to support this or you relying on "truth filled commercials" from a desperate campaign?

But they have Chlorophyll and Retsyn in a new mini tac candy!

$25,000

for a private dinner? No thanks, I'd rather have chicken gizzards at The Crescent, "No Lawyers Bar."

$0 for Romney

That's nice, Clint. Take care of yourself. But, your endorsement means nothing to me! Obama 2012.

Context is everything

"Now more than ever do we need Gov. Romney. I’m going to be voting for him," Eastwood told Romney supporters Friday night. (Actual)

or

"I thought, 'He's too handsome to be governor, but he does look like he could be president,'" Eastwood said, adding, "I'm going to be voting for him." (This blog)

Interesting context... Read IdaGalBlue's post below to see my point.

Huh? Did you read the Mountain Express story?

The quotes came from the story, with the link above. Their reporter was there, I wasn't.

The Express attributes the "handsome" quote to Eastwood.

The quote you attribute to Eastwood does not appear in the story, either from Eastwood or anyone else.

According to the Express, Gov. Otter did say this: "It's what we need, it's what we deserve and it's what we'll get with Mitt."

Agreed, context is important, as are accurate quotes.
What is the source of the quote you provide above?

Did AP just make it up?

They bore very easily you realize.

You fry wants with that?

That's it?

That's the best reason Clint can come up with to vote for Romney? He's probably hoping Romney can help him hold on to more of his millions. Rich people like to stick together so they can stick it to the rest of us!

At least Clint always had good taste in hi-fi gear.
