Clint Eastwood

Reality Show Did NOT

Set Up Obama Schtick

Clint Eastwood
was NOT put up to his painful Barack Obama schtick last night by the producers of his family's reality show -- in fact, sources close to the legend tell TMZ, Clint "acts that way all the time at home."

There's been a lot of speculation -- Clint's bit was so awful ... there's no way it wasn't a setup for reality TV ... but we're told it really wasn't. The whole thing was Clint's idea, and even his family had no clue what he planned to do on stage.

According to sources, Clint's family's reality show "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" has not officially been picked up for a 2nd season and they're not currently in production -- so there's no way producers could have had a hand in last night's trainwreck.  

We’re told Clint's family believes his speech was widely misunderstood -- Clint just has a dry sense of humor that people don't understand.

Sure.

He sounded like an old fool trying to make a comeback., or had trouble remembering why he was there in the first place His speech certainly didn't help Romney If Mr. Romney thinks that speech is another strategy to get the American people's votes, he is sadly mistaking.

Thought Eastwood was funny. Don't understand why all the haters when its okay for Maher,Bahar and other Hollywooders to spew their hate and lies towards Bush and other Republicans. Why always the double standard with all of you so called political correct zombies. You just follow what ever the bias MSM tells you including the promises Obama made and never fulfilled. Blaming Bush when Obama has had almost 4 years and a democratic congress at one time to fulfill the promises he made. Obama knew the state of the country when he ran for the presidency 4 years ago and still made promises and has failed to carry them out now blaming bush and who or whatever he can. You gave Obama a chance 4 years ago and he failed now its time to give someone with experience a chance to turn the economy and this country around. I don't see you have anything to lose considering the condition this country is in today.

Clint's analogy was great. His metaphor was spot on.
Harvey make's an ass out of himself every night, and you guys want to lambast an 80+ year old?

There's no way that horrible reality show should be renewed. It's terrible! Dina is an attractive woman, but she's dingy. She's just not all there mentally. Neither are the Eastwood daughters.
Renew Here Comes Honey Boo Boo...pass on Mrs. Eastwood...
