[ Life]

Clint Eastwood, that beloved, gravelly-voiced cowboy we all grew up with, got a little weird during his speech at the RNC when he started talking to an empty chair, pretending President Obama was sitting there and even addressing the chair as though it was interjecting during the “conversation”.

“It may be time for someone else to come along and solve the problem. I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane,” Eastwood said. “What do you want me to tell Romney? I can’t tell him to do that to himself . . . you’re getting as bad as Biden . . . of course we all know Biden is the intellect of the Democratic Party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it . . . ”

Obama, never one to lose his cool at the many insults that get hurled at him, tweeted simply, “This seat’s taken.”

The tweet wasn’t signed “BO”, which would mean Obama himself composed it, but it’s hilarious to think that perhaps he directed a staffer to sign in for a retort. Meanwhile, a slew of celebrities took to Twitter as well to talk about Eastwood and his odd oration.

Of course, a lot of people love Eastwood the same as they ever did, so it’s doubtful that his eccentric ruminations will hurt him in any way.

    Eastwood didn’t build that empty chair.

    I’m not sure what Clint Eastwood was thinking…maybe his mind is going, as it would seem from his funding his wife’s TV show. I think he should retire and know that we all loved him…back in the day.
    As for Obam bam…just the thought that this guy “tweets” tells us he is not cut out to be president of the U.S. why have we not outted him?
    Ok so we elected a black pres…sorry he turned out to be an IDIOT.
    Now let’s get someone in office to fix this country.
    I will agree that Romney may not be the best choice…but wow he couldn’r be worse than bam bam. Give him 4 years since he is a business man and in the meantime…stop the politcal BS and find someone who can “lead” this country.

      Why are you bringing up a person’s color (race). I don’t think you really know the definition of an idiot. What have you accomplished to make this a better country?

      • Love

        Fixing this country will NOT BE DONE by those in politics. It starts with the individual (job creators, respect, everyone getting involved to do his/her equal share, etc) No, that is too much work for the average American because it is easier to blame someone else. Americans want government to solve problems, but don’t want government to regulate issues. It is like saying, give me $1 billion, but don’t tell me how to spend it. If I run out, I want more!

  • SHARON

    when Romney first began his campaign he showed us who the REAL IDIOT IS, HIM!!! AND NOW HE HAS COMPANY you!!!!!

  • D RANDALL Price

    I thought mr Eastwood was spot on I think If the President gets
    re-elected, He will Do so much Damage to our Country and way of
    life We may never recover.
    BO HAS GOT TO GO.

  • Robbie

    I think Clint’s Gestalt therapy may have gone to his head. Still, his performance was far more entertaining than having to watch Romney struggle to reach a climax. And when he eventually did shoot his load I was expecting Mitt to open a packet of cigarettes, light one, inhale, lean into the microphone and gently voice to the (now silent) crowd “was it good for you?”; but no, we get balloons.

    • chezie

      mr. eastwood’s schtuck was very clever and he certainly has the right, as do we all, to express an opinion. Unfortunately, he is on the wrong team. Let’s hope and pray that the wrong team does “win” this election.

      • chezie

        this is a correction..i meant to say NOT WIN this election. guess i am so nervous that romney will win ,,,,it would be dreadful,

    Old Clint, might have to start handing, out the buck’s, If the Demo’s, stay in office.

  • http://WebProNews DrtyYgMn

    OMG — Obama Must Go. They should have had an empty suit instead of an empty chair. Obama is clueless.

    • Earthquake

      Yo dude, Sorry your ass is blind. BO. is smarter than all of lets say you dumb ass stiff Miff Romney supporters. I know a lot of smart people, I know a lot of people with integrity, but what I do not know is a few Republicans that tell the truth. Miff is the leader of the GOL party,(Grand Ole Liar) party, and you are to racist to see it. racist = blindness to the truth. We know your truth, every comment made about BO is bases on the inconcievable premise that BO is smarter than all of you, and that stiff, cardboard candidude Miff.

    • Earthquake

      More like DumYgMn, you racist DA. Riff Bomney is such a liar, and aristocrat. I didn’t thing you let’s say you rich dudes had time to blog. It seems Riff, Miff, has brain washed you into beleiving you are rich. What do you think Miff wants to do for you. He wants to sift you as if you were wheat. Boy, let me tell you something, take a look at Romney and see how he wobbles when he walks, He has the gait of an old racoon with a pole up his ass. Boy, take off those RaCizts Shades. Miff never placed money in your pocket.

  • Love

    Clint was mayor in a town in CA. Celebrities do well in winning elections, because they have the money and the power. Put Clint in the White House and let’s see how he does.(Just kidding)

  • Sandblaster

    President Obama sits in the Presidents chair with his back to the American people. He’s not listening, he could care less or it’s not about America it’s about him and we the people should just get behind him because he has “change” and we the sheep should follow no matter what. Another poor leadership response from your President and you can bet he approves this message.

  • Sandblaster

    President Obama sitting in the Presidents chair with his back to the American people reminds me of Senator Bill Nelson of Florida reelection where he’s outside with a sign saying hes Bill Nelson. How lame because hes been in office for so long now that we never see him and nobody really knows he is.

  • Lloyd Kessel

    Clint Eastwood is simply brilliant! A lot of Americans have been speaking about that elusive president for over three years now. And what is his reply? A picture of the back of his head! I’m glad your listening Obama.

    • Molly Pitcher

      when they rushed to get the picture he didn t have time to change out of his golfing attire !

  • joe anderson

    OLD CLINT MAY NOT BE MUCH OF A SPEECH WRITER, BUT HE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. CLINT IS JUST FED UP LIKE THE REST OF US, 12,000,000 UNEMPLOYED, AN ECONOMY THAT HAS SEEN NO IMPROVEMENT IN OBAMAS 4 YEARS, WHERES THE HOPE AND CHANGE? OBAMA / BIDEN HAD THEIR CHANCE, ITS TIME FOR MICHELLE AND HER MOTHER TO STOP FLYING AROUND THE WORLD ON OUR DOLLAR, AND CLINT , YOU BETTER SIT IN THAT MT CHAIR BEFORE YOU FALL OVER.

    • Gail

      WELL I HAD GREAT RESPECT FOR CLINT. UNTIL THIS MOVE. I know that Obama did not cause the problem. Everyone has forgotten that two Bush’s served back to back.That’s when WE the people started paying the price and it is only the poor and elderly that ever pay the price. Now jobs are going else where out of the United States. It is only the rich who want to keep us down and they work hard at keeping us unemployed in poverty.
      So I am sorry that Clint Eastwood things so little of us the poor we have children that like to eat, have toys, medical care You know what Clint wanted for his kids and grandkids.

      • Molly Pitcher

        like clint said to the Obama chair:
        “You re not doing the job, we have to let you go”

  • http://WebProNews DrtyYgMn

    Obama has succedeeded in his mission since taking office – putting this country in such a dire situation that we may never recover. When America was great the people succeeded by achieving on their own. Now, people have become so dependent on the government that they expect their basic needs to be provided for them. Drive through any inner city and you will see the breeders with little children everywhere living in slum conditions being unable to provide their food, housing, clothing and medical care. Why do thet keep breeding kids? – because the government of Obama will provide all their needs.

    • Bill P

      There are more people on welfare in the burbs tha in the burbs than the inner city..check the facts….

  • http://WebProNews DrtyYgMn

    Ladies and Gentlemen we are $16 trillion in debt. Wake up and smell the coffee – if government spending continues at this rate we are doomed. Whether you are Dem. Rep. or Ind. you have to see that a change in direction at the top is needed. If you love your country OBAMA MUST GO and spending must be cut. It is not too late but if Obama “SPENDS” 4 more years in Washington it will be too late.

  • http://WebProNews DrtyYgMn

    This is for EARTHQUAKE “you are the racist” and you can’t even write a proper sentence. My dislike for Obama has nothing to do with his skin color , it has to do with the fact his vision for America is wrong. Socialism will not work. Any country that has tried it has failed. You’re probably one of those welfare junkies who has all his needs provided by government spending. If Obama goes-you’d have to work for a living and that scares the hell out of your dumb, lazy a$$.

  • http://YAHOO NELSON THORNTON

    WE ARE ALL TO BLAME FILING BANKRUPT AND REFUSED TO PAY OUR FARE SHARE OF TAXES, LOOK AT THE MAN OR WOMAN IN THE MIRROR AND YOU WE SEE THAT WE ALL ARE THE PROBLEM THINKING WE ARE BETTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE OF THE WORLD. THIS IS PAYBACK TIME AND WE ARE PAYING OURSELF BACK FOR TRYING TO STOP WORKING PEOPLE FROM ACHIEVING SUCESS. TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA BEEN SLEEPING TO LONG AND LOVE TO POINT FINGERS AT EACH OTHER. IF EVERYBODY DON’T WIN WE ALL FAIL………….THINK ABOUT THAT

  • TFM

    Are you people freaking kidding me with that crap about how Obama got us in this mess? Has no one been around since Clinton left office? This did not just happen over night and it did not happen in the last four years- hmmm…let’s see… since Reagan? Clinton may have fooled around a bit- who the hell isn’t in bed with someone in Washington- but at least economically, we were in the black. No matter if you are Democrat or Republican, our system is broken. Reagan meant to break the unions and he has damn near accomplished it. Well- fine whatever. The only reason unions came about were because people were starving and hungry. They had to fight for what they got. Did things go overboard- yeah probably so. I am not saying one is anymore right than the other, but greed is where we all go wrong. When companies don’t take care of their people and they want all the profits and pay enough to keep people opressed, then yes people get tired and sick then, sick and tired. Then you finally get to a point where they can enjoy a little bit of the American dream and freaking Reagan and Bush open up Free Trade- and suddenly every company aboandons ship- they can make a profit oversees without penalty blah blah blah- now where the hell are we at? No jobs, we don’t make anything. We are China-Made-Americans- no pride, no money, no backbone. We’ve morphed into a pathetic society that hides behind a computer screen.

    • Bill S.

      TFM, I think Bush got us in this mess. You Right wingers forget so quickly. Now you fools are talking to empty chairs?

    • Carolyn

      You should have your own talk show.

      • Carolyn

        Comment was for TFM.

  • Doc

    I thought Eastwood was clever and funny and Clint portrayed BO for what he really is, an empty man leaving an empty chair in the oval office. Obama is a man with no experience, job background, and no passion for the American people. I think anyone with a brain has GOT to admit that Obama has woefully failed as president and you or I would have been FIRED with the same job performance. If I had five patients to care for and I concentrated on only one, to the demise of all the others….that’s unacceptable! That’s what Obama has done and the “American” people are paying for it.

    Why does race come in to the picture someone asked…because when the very FIRST black man ran for the office of president no one wanted to be labeled a “racist” so the negative comments were curbed. We would have heard about his total lack of experience, his lack of qualified, experienced people surrounding him and working for him, about his “job” history (or lack thereof), his absentee history as congressman and on and on and on. We keep hearing about how brilliant he is, and I have to admit…yes, he can really read! BO reminds me of a man watching a tennis match, his head continually turning left to right, left to right, left to right….He’s NOT watching his audience nor is he watching a tennis match….HE’S READING HIS SCRIPT!! We don’t really know if he wrote it himself, only that he can READ it.

    Please, give someone else an opportunity to at least TRY to turn our country around. We have only one other choice because Obama has tried and can NOT do the job, the pay scale is beyond his abilities.

  • June

    I agree with the person that talked about if we didn’t do our job that we are fired.
    I like what Donald Trump says Your Fired.
    I hope that will be the truth about Obama.

  • Mommyof4

    I see a lot of angry comments from both sides of the fence attacking this issue about Clint and Obama but let me ask you all something. Have any of you checked out Mitt’s background? I worked for his former firm for several years before he decided to run for office and I have to tell you very few of the funds his firm started are located in the US. Most of them are in banks in the Cayman Islands. Not let me ask you something else, if the company he started only wants to work with you if you have at least 5 milliion in cash to start with what does that say about the average middle classe person in this country? Do you still fee the love from Mitt now? I may not approve of all that the president is doing but I do see him trying. Not everything that he’s tried to accomplish has worked because he faces opposition from both sides of the isle but I honestly believe he is trying and we didn’t get here overnight as someone else pointed out. We had 8 years of Bush Jr. setting up the next president for this fall. It wouldn’t have mattered who was president at this point but I do worry about more jobs being sent overseas and Mitt can’t promise that they won’t.

  • Molly Pitcher

    One sentence says it all in a nutshell
    “When someone isn ‘t getting it done you have to let him go”

    Great line Clint

    • Molly Pitcher

      AS for Romney, Hallelujah the guy LOVES his wife !!!
