Eastwood surprises GOP convention – maybe in more ways than one


Peter Schiff was attending the Republican Convention, but when KWN asked about it he unloaded: “It’s disappointing to me.  First of all I don’t like the fact that everything had to conform.  It’s all Romney, Romeny, Romney.  I mean I know Romney is the nominee, but there were other people that ran for President and I think it would be nice to see some of those signs out there.


There are a lot of Ron Paul supporters here.  I think it would have been nice if the convention acknowledged Ron a little bit more and let the people show their support for other candidates, in addition to Romney.  The Ron Paul camp felt strong-armed, and I think that was a mistake.


You’ve got a lot of energetic, motivated people that would join in with this party, and were enthusiastic about Ron Paul. They should have tried to cultivate that and bring them into the fold, into the tent and acknowledge their efforts.  Instead they basically slapped them in the face and turned them off.
