The 2012 Republican National Convention will definitely go down in political history as one of the most talked about GOP conventions on record, and there were numerous moments we won’t soon forget.
From Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair, to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie fist-pumping Jersey Shore-style as he was introduced before his keynote speech, there were some high points and some equally low points.
A CNN camerawoman being assaulted and Jon Voight calling Obama a Marxist are a few of the moments that took a disturbing tone as the convention came to a close.
Here are a few moments we'd be hard-pressed to forget from the 2012 RNC.
Still fresh in people’s minds is the unscripted chair-talking bit Clint Eastwood did with an empty chair at the RNC last night.
Eastwood, in a failed attempt at humor, talked to an invisible Obama and spat out one-liners that had the GOP in stitches.
Watch as Clint makes a funny….
New Jersey Governor, Chris “Big Popps” Christie, came out fist-pumping when he gave the keynote address at the RNC.
How about Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice speaking at the RNC? Well, the only thing people can remember was that she had lipstick on her teeth...
One of the worst moments was the assault on CNN camerawoman Patricia Carroll. At the RNC on Tuesday night, Carroll was assaulted by two attendees who threw peanuts at her and screamed racial slurs.
Carroll spoke on the incident and said, "I hate that it happened, but I'm not surprised at all."
Paul Ryan's lies were the only thing anyone could talk about after the VP gave his speech at the RNC.
Here’s one of Ryan’s mistruths:
Ryan attacked Barack Obama for the closing of a GM plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin.
Fact: The plant closed in December 2008 under George W. Bush.
Jon Voight couldn’t resist telling the world that President Obama was a Marxist. On the one of the first days of the convention, Voight took the time to call out Obama.
Peep the video.
How about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer accidentally endorsing Obama for President, not realizing she misspoke? Take a look.
