Clint Eastwood

Bumbles Through

Invisible Obama Schtick

Clint Eastwood brought down the partisan crowd at the RNC by stumbling through an 11-minute bit last night that was supposed to be painfully hysterical ... but might have been just painful.

The legendary actor/director got on stage and addressed an empty stool next to him, saying ... "I've got Mr. Obama sitting here. I just was gonna ask him a couple questions."

During the schtick 82-year-old Clint seemed confused at times as he critiqued the President's 4 years in office ... and set up punchlines like, "What do you want me to tell Romney? I can't tell him to do that. He can't do that to himself."

President Obama responded to the invisible routine this morning by tweeting a pic of the back of his chair with the message, "This seat's taken."

No doubt, landing an icon like Eastwood to warm up the crowd for Mitt Romney was a coup for the GOP -- but still, we gotta ask ...

Wow. If this was looney clooney yapping about a perfect world, whoopie goldberg, or guitar-plunking Springstein creating another bad song for Obama, the press would be having orgasms of joy. But straight old non-minorities get nothing but hate.

The Media and Celebrities that are Mocking Clint Eastwood is beyond Hypocritical . It is down right reckless or sick (in it own right) .

The Leftists (lmedia/celeb) mock anyone that does not support the democrats party line (which many say is statism) and need a 'group think' media/ hollywood culture (which they still have).

Do the ******ging gop people really think we are going to buy into thier bs? It was GW who got us in this fix and the gop will not let us get back to where we were. We the people have to take back our government from the big corporations and remind them that they are using tax payers; roads, water, water treatment facilities, police, fire personnel, and most of all the employees are educated with tax dollars. The corporations trucks tear up our roads and use up most of the water and don't feel they should have to pay for it? To educate each employee in those corporations didnt come cheap so they better start paying up. Romney needs to shut his mouth because he doesnt know what its like to be a tax paying american.

Clint Eastwood, we shouldn't have a president that was a lawyer, last I check Mitt Romney went to Harvard Law School. Great idea having a business person who thinks about profit first and people last to run the country. Ask the people of Massachusetts how GREAT he was.

@ TmzDontsurf.... Come November I will "Barack the Vote"...
Question did you know as many other didn't know that The federal Bailout save Mitt-caroni ..Mitt Romney likes to say he won't "apologize" for his success in business. But what he never says is "thank you" – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible..Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. The guy is a character with his fake press on smile cannot be trusted...and the name mitt-caroni fit him oh so perfectly..because he is so crooked....

I like Clint Eastwood as an actor, but his performance at the RNC was nothing short of an embarrassment to himself!
