Barack Obama

I'm a HUGE

Clint Eastwood Fan

President Barack Obama
has no hard feelings toward Clint Eastwood following his um ... bizarre speech at the RNC this week ... saying he has nothing but love for Dirty Harry.

In an interview published this weekend, Obama copped to being a "huge fan" of Mr. Eastwood's work, saying he's "a great actor, and an even better director."

The president did slightly dodge the question when asked if he was offended by Clint's chairtastic speech this week, saying only, "If you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession."

It remains to be seen if Barack will need a new profession anytime soon.

Hey think about it, if we all wanted just one man and there was no bi-partisan, then he would become a dictator, This is democracy... We need both sides to
Keep it balanced. Saying that, I believe every candidate that wants to be
President makes all the wonderfeuk promises to get elected,
And no one is ever satisfied.

"If you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession."

Smartest thing he has ever said. Now just tell your Media buddies you can take it and quit front paging every little thing that is said about you. To Criticize is NOT Racist.

Obama's response was classy, and in light of the lack of class showed by the originating speech, I tip my hat to President Obama. There was nothing classy about Clint's speech he gave that night. I don't care whom you are, American icon or not, you do not give a speech in which you insinuate the President of the United States is 's telling people to "shut up" and to go "F" themselves. It was tacky, and made me lose a lot of respect for Clint Eastwood. You respect the office.. even if you dislike the person's political stances. It was rude, disrespectful and far from appropriate. I watched most of the RNC, and despite not liking what most of the speakers had to say, including many of the mistruths which were spoken, I can say that at least a few of them showed class, restraint, and even if I didn't agree with them, could at least applaud them for being honorable and having integrity in their remarks and standing up for THEIR beliefs. They were all respectful, and Clint was not.

TMZ is a celebrity site - not news. Stick with the Kardashians, Snooki and Courtney Snodden not politics about which you know nothing.

If Obama is so smart how come him & his wife used the wrong hand when they said the Pledge of Allegiance. How can you be president if you dont know what hand to use. That was not only disrespectful to all who fought for this country and to all the citizens of this country. If he's so smart why did the deficit go up to almost 6 billion since he took office. You must be one of those broke people who don't want to work and collect welfare and make te hard working middle class pay for it. Do me a favor move to Canada

So slick. Never taking the cheap shot himself. Quite presidential, if not royal.
