Mr. Eastwood spoke the simple truth. What is “senile,” “crazy,” or “delusional” about that?

Later, he joked that Mr. Obama lacks real experience and that maybe it’s time for a “businessman” in the Oval Office. He then punctuated that by saying a “stellar businessman,” as a way to remind the audience of the quote from former President Bill Clinton who in May said that Mr. Romney had a “sterling business career” at Bain Capital.

Nothing “senile,” “crazy,” or “delusional” about that.

When wrapping up his remarks, Mr. Eastwood said, “I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen. Something that I think is very important. It is that you, we -- we own this country…politicians are employees of ours…I just think it is important that you realize that you’re the best in the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you’re a libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we let them go.”

If that is “senile,” “crazy,” or “delusional,” please give me more of it.

Clint Eastwood dared to shine a spotlight on the failed presidency of Barack Obama and the left is going all out to vilify him.

Mitt Romney and his campaign need to not only strongly defend Mr. Eastwood but echo his words throughout the land. Should they do so, millions of voters -- seniors and others -- will take note and be reminded of Mr. Romney’s goodness.
