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.

I still love Clint but his stage performance at the Republican Convention was deplorable. He belongs in a nursing home for Gods sake or out on the golf course. His hair sticking up with him babbling incessantly.....sad, very sad!

See Clint babbling like an idiot...I though he had dimentia or worse? Very sad. It almost ruined my picture perfect opinion of him....sad, sad, sad...he is a great guy who is losing his mind...he didn't belong on the stage. The Republicans did not invite George Bush, Sarah Palin, Cheney, Karl Rove? Are they this embarrassed by the recent past?

I certainly hope we get a new President. This one has done so much damage that it might take a Dirty Harry to get us out of this debt and mess that we're in. Barak Obama is no Clint Eastwood....believe me.

Clint was great. Democrats dismiss the speech as bizarre - but it was simply brilliant.

Poor Leno    

Clint you freaking rule, the chair thing was just to make a point as he was pretending to talk to Obama. Like an illustration without any graphic elements...

Clint Eastwood just got owned by Barak Obama oh so smoothly. Eastwood needs to stick to the stone-faced cranky gunslinger roles, because his comedy routine was abysmal. Obama has so much genuine class and a***en, that he defies the stereotypical definition of a politician. I laugh at people who question his smooth swagger as a hidden agenda, but it's really just what absolute personal pride looks like.

Obama is graceful and Clint...who we all love for so long...is getting old. I didn't think Clint's bit was...well...anything but kind of embarrassing to him. I love that Obama chose the high road about this!

Pres. Obama is the most gracious man - he represents us with such class and poise and intelligence. I will have to move away if Romney is elected - he has no class, now manners, no intelligence and is certainly not gracious. He complained about cookies a supporter made for him - what a loser

Apparently the feeling is not mutual.
