Clint Eastwood

Bumbles Through

Invisible Obama Schtick

8/31/2012 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

First Isaac almost prevented the convention from happening, then the GOTea totally drop the ball and throw the most ridiculous event in convention history. EPIC FAIL! And of course, R'money forgot to talk about any of his proposed policies he'd implement as POTUS (because he has none besides giving the 1% more of a tax break, turn medicare into a voucher system that will cost seniors at least $6K out of pocket per year, and join in the GOTea's obsession with controlling womens bodies).
Nothing but a bunch of lies and B$ !!! WHERE'S YOUR TAX RETURNS, SWISS MYTH????????

Obama should have said a more appropriate comment: “This Seat is Occupied” Just like his Marxist, Soros Funded, Occupy Movement that cost the American Tax Payers MILLIONS.

Truth    

LMFAO It’s a battle for America’s heartland. Who better than Clint Eastwood? Sure the costal elites howl. They responded exactly as they were intended to respond. And, it was also intended to make the typical media elite crowd howl. It worked perfectly. The more the Rachel Maddows, New York Times columnists and costal elites roll their eyes, the better.

It was like watching your crazy drunk uncle at a family reunion. All I could think was 'What the Hell?"

Isn't EASTWOOD like a THOUSAND YEARS OLD??? *SIGH* ANOTHER PERFECT EXAMPLE of an "icon" who for WHATEVER reason (he DOES have a movie coming out soon RIGHT?) feels the need to make a CARACITURE of himself and come off looking like a TOTAL IDIOT... I'm a REPUBLICAN... and IF MR, PR, CC and EASTWOOD is the BEST we've got I think we are in trouble...

*Obama's a monumental disgrace
He is:
-- the man who surrounds himself with and seeks the advice of only the radical left and worse
--the man who redistributes (loots) the earnings of the producers to the non-producers so they will continue to vote for him
--the man who embraces the ideas of Saul Alinsky & Karl Marx.
--the man who refuses to take questions.
--the man who supports Occupation Wall St.
--the man who is spending and manipulating the greatest country on earth into financial collapse.
--the man who speaks of "social justice" but never of freedom.
--the man who hates free market capitalism.
--the man who prevents the development of our oil, coal & nuclear resources.
--the man who rejects the Constitution.
--the man who initiates force against us all by “mandating” his health care scam. A true despot.

He is, at best, a cheap Chicago left-wing politician who cares only that he get re-elected to a position he is grotesquely unequipped for -- yet doesn’t take even that position seriously enough to read Economics 101.

Sad thing...he damaged his own credibility after an awesome career. But it shows the true substance behind the GOP...it is now largely composed of so many nuts that it's turned into a giant human fruitcake.
