Barack Obama

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.

Of course Obama has no hard feelings about it...he's a Washington puppet who's getting filthy rich by serving the rich at the expense of the middle-class...he doesn't care what Clint says about him because he knows he'll still be filthy rich whether he's elected again or not, either way he walks away with tens of millions of taxpayer's money in his offshore bank accounts from payoffs, kickbacks, and profiteering scams through Washington bureaucracy.
Still....Clint could whoop Obama's ass in the boxing ring even at 82 :D

Well-Obama handled that well-- he has respect for Clint Eastwood's work--too bad other hollywood celebrities were not as graceful.

TMZ and Harvey are so Democrap and one sided it's sickening to watch sometimes. If you're going to report the news, report it from both sides. What about all the shovel ready jobs and the bail out money that Obamanation was supposed to spur job growth with? He is the most stagnet President in history. Facts

I was mad at Clint but since the prez is going to be so big-hearted about it then, Dirty Harry is out of the doghouse with me, after all, he is somewhat elderly and should be cut some slack.

Didn't Mitt Romey speak at the RNC? Funny, it seems the most exciting and memorable speech was given by Mr. Eastwood. That speaks volumes about the Republican Presidential candidate.

This is what happens when you select a community organizer as the POTUS.

Obama needs to go into acting...you know be an "actor" since he does that so well and thinks he is a celebrity already.

for all you people who don't us the title President Obama, or Mr. President because he hasn't earned your respect. The respect of the title of the POTUS was EARNED on election day in 2008

I'd bet Obama couldn't name more than one Clint Eastwood movie. His comment was an attempt to blue collar workersin the swing states.
