Clint Eastwood Endorses Mitt Romney For President

Hollywood star and long time conservative Clint Eastwood, has endorsed Mitt Romney in the race for President of the United States. While attending a fundraiser in Sun Valley, Idaho, the Oscar award-winner told the crowd that, Romney will “restore a decent tax system that we need badly.”

As the Dirty Harry star sat in the crowd, Romney saw him and asked him to come to the stage. As the actor walked to the stage the presidential Republican candidate said, “There is a guy here from the world of acting, who has pursued his dreams in a very unusual way. He stood up to the industry and did things his own way.”

After Eastwood hit the stage, he took the microphone and joked, “This is very nice to be here today. I was doing a picture in early 2000s called Mystic River in his home state. At that time, Gov. Romney was running for governor. I said, ‘God, this guy is too handsome to be governor, but he does look like he could be president.'”

Eastwood added that Romney would restore “a decent tax system that we need badly … so that there’s a fairness and people are not pitted against one another as who’s paying taxes and who isn’t.”

He continued:

“Also, we don’t want anybody taking away the Olympic medals, tax-wise, from the Olympic athletes. The government is talking about getting a couple of nickels. It’s now more important than ever that we need Gov. Romney, and I’m going to be voting for him as I know most of you will be. … We’ve got to just spread the word and get the whole country behind this.”

Eastwood concluded by saying, “Now more than ever do we need Governor Romney. I’m going to be voting for him. “
