Rob Reiner

Clint's RNC Speech Was

'Embarrassing'

9/9/2012 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0909_reiner_videoRob Reiner has always had a way with words and he dropped a critical one when talking about Clint Eastwood's speech at the Republican National Convention last week ... "embarrassing."

By now everyone has seen the "speech" ... with the "Unforgiven" star talking to an empty chair meant to symbolize President Barack Obama. 

Reiner, who was at the DNC, said he felt the Dems' convention was better (shocker). And last night outside Toscana in Brentwood, he told our photog he was embarrassed by Clint's baffling speech, adding, "I am a big fan of Clint's but not doing this."

The gambit of using an empty chair to portray a person unwilling to sit and debate at the site in question is a common one and used by liberals quite often. I was told SNL uses it occasionally.
For this rabid leftist extremist called rob reiner to complain about a skillful dismantling of obama and his failed policies of the last 4 years is a joke in extreme.
Rob and other far leftist loonies like rob should merely remain quiet and forget his wild leftist comments about a superior human that he could not even dream of equaling.

Hey Rob, what ever happened to all that anti-smoking money? Just another LIBERAL scam on California. BTW, you couldn't carry Clint's laundry, so just STFU, please.

Rob, easy to see what side you are on. Let's see what kind of speech you can give without a teleprompter at 82. don't ya get it? the empty chair was referring to the "empty suit" Obama. You get it, you just want other people to think Clint was senile. He was great and if the situation was reversed, I would still say it was a great speech. I give anyone kudos to not use those teleprompters especially at 82.
