What they won't tell you about Clint's Speech

People are already making a big deal about Clint Eastwood's speech at the RNC.
Hell, George Takei is already tweeting about it

But if you pay attention, at about 8m and 40s, he stops giving a speech to the RNC and starts giving one to America. Look at what he's actually saying here emphasis mine, (parenthesis me).
I would just like to say something, ladies and gentleman. Something that I think is very important.
It's that you, we.. we own this country.
Yes, we own it, and it's not you owning it and it's not politicians owning it.
Politicians are employees of ours. 
(not leaders, not Gods)
So, they're just going to come around and beg for votes every few years. It's the same ole deal.
I just think that it is important that you realize that you're the best in the world.
(I disagree with that. For the view I agree with, see the youtube video at the bottom of the post)

Whether you're a democrat or whether you're a republican or whether you're libertarian or whatever, you're the best, and we should not ever forget that.
When somebody does not do the job, we gotta let 'em go.
Just remember that, and I'm speaking out for everybody out there.
It doesn't hurt, we don't have to be
*gets heckled*
*plays along*
What I'm saying is that we don't have to be mental masochists and vote for somebody that we don't even really want, in office, just because they seem to be nice guys.
(I'm sorry, but try and describe Mitt Romney as anything but the candidate none of the Republicans wanted to back until they took away the other choices.... just try).

Here's a reality check for the Best in the World belief:
