Dear Mr. Eastwood,
First, well done last night at the RNC! You really told President Obama, I mean the empty chair, that was symbolic of President Obama.
I also thought the messy hair was a nice touch to emphasize the mean guy message playing hardball with American politics.
Let’s just take a second to review my favorite part of your speech where you really gave it to President Obama:
“See, I never thought it was a good idea for attorneys to the president, anyway.”
“I think attorneys are so busy — you know they’re always taught to argue everything, and always weight everything — weigh both sides. They are always devil’s advocating this and bifurcating this and bifurcating that. You know all that stuff.
But, I think it is maybe time — what do you think — for maybe a businessman. How about that?” Clint Eastwood, RNC 2012
You really told President Obama! Lawyers for Presidents suck! Let’s take a look at the other Presidents who were also lawyers and see how bad they sucked just to further prove your point:
John Quincy Adams
Martin Van Buren
Rutherford B. Hayes
William Howard Taft
William Jefferson Clinton
Yep. Mr. Eastwood, I agree. When I look over this long list I can only just review it in amazement. A long list of Presidents who were once lawyers who just stunk up the county. None of them did much of anything memorable. Thomas Jefferson…can’t think of anything. Abraham Lincoln….nope…nothing comes to mind.
I think you and the GOP are correct. Elect a businessman. I wouldn’t elect anyone like Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln. Lawyers can’t be trusted to do anything right by the White House. History shows us this,you pointed it out and the GOP applauded in agreement.
Yours in historical studies,
