Clint Eastwood - Clint Eastwood Talks Politics Again; Gives Romney The Cold Shoulder

Clint Eastwood has been talking politics again, and this time he actually criticised Mitt Romney, the man he so publically backed last time he made a foray into public politics, reports The New York Daily News.

“If somebody's dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they're gonna have to take what they get," he said of Romney, whilst acknowledging that his performance last time didn’t go down that well. “People loved it or hated it and that’s fine,” he said. “That’s what it was supposed to be.” We’re still trying to work out exactly what that means. Eastwood wasn’t all doom on gloom on his chosen presidential candidate saying that hoped Romney would “be a little more organized, a little more business-wise”

On Obama, who recently stated his admiration for the controversial 82-year old Western star, Eastwood had nice things to say. Not nice, just, things: “Well, great. Well, I think he can be very gracious when he wants to be. That’s fine,” Eastwood said. “And I have no problem with him at all. I just have a problem with the situation that we’re in right now. It’s nothing personal,” he added “When he came in, I thought it was great. I thought the multiculturalism, multiracialism was great, all that kind of stuff. But to me, it’s just about the work,” he concluded. So, it’s good to see he supports Multiracialism as long as the work gets done. Yeah?
