The Republican National Convention wrapped up Thursday night with big speeches from GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, surprise guest Clint Eastwood and Florida Governor Marco Rubio.
Romney attacked what he called President Obama's failed promises, saying, "Tonight I'd ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn't you feel that way now that he's President Obama? You know there's something wrong with the kind of job he's done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him."
He added that "the time has come to turn the page," saying that Americans "deserved" the "hope and change" that Obama had promised during his first campaign for president, but has failed to delivered.
For his part, Romney promised "jobs. Lots of jobs." He touched upon his Mormon faith and his time at Bain Capital, mentioning that the office supply chain Staples began with money from the firm.
Romney's speech may have been overshadowed by Clint Eastwood, a surprise speaker at the convention. The 82-year-old actor rambled, seemingly without the aid of a teleprompter or notes. During one part of his speech, he had a conversation with a empty chair next to him that he pretended was President Obama. When he finally wrapped things up, Eastwood got a big reaction from the crowd by having them repeat his Dirty Harry catch phrase, "Make my day!"
