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."

Clint,s approach is not new. In Philadelphia, PA in a mayor's race this was done by a candidate noting the ABSENCE of the opposition candidate at a debate. He debated a empty chair!! Most of the political conventions have become meaningless, unless you enjoy the comic relief of hearing people lie most of the time. A real waste of time and money to put on a dog and pony show! I find the Westminister Dog Show more interesting!!!!

ROB ALERT .. YOU ARE A COMPLETE FAT ASS LOUD MOUTH and YOU, ROB, SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED for too many reasons. CLINT IS 82 AND LOOKS BETTER THAN YOU BY MILES. HE DOESN'T USE A TELEPROMPTER AND HE DOESN'T LIE AND ACTUALLY THAT WAS AN ADORABLE SKIT. CLINT IS A RESPECTED SENIOR AND YOU ARE KNOWN TO BE A COMOPLETE FAT SPONGE FLYING AOUND WITH YOUR ZIPPER OPEN ... UP AND DOWN... BIG MOUTH FATSO .. NOT TOO BRIGHT. AND BY THE WAY, THE DEM'S SPOKE WELL WITHOUT USING GOD ANYMORE BUT THEY LIED .. OR DID YOU READ THOSE POLLS?

Why aren't you in prison Rob? Last I heard, theft was considered a crime. Especially when it was millions.

The only President that should have been mocked, questioned or ridiculed ... was absent missing Bush.
How humiliating and embarrassing for the RNC to pretend Bush doesn't exist or not to welcome him.
.
How hypocritical of Clint to mock our current President, when the RNC didn't even want to acknowledge last Republican President existed because they are so embarrassed by all the things he did leading to the biggest decline this country has endured since the Great Depression.
It would have only been fitting for that empty chair to represent the missing former POTUS BUSH.

Who cares what he thinks? And anyone who will be objective and honest will admit that if it had been done at the DNC, it would have been deemed "creative," "fresh" etc. Really shocking to hear Rob say this. Not!! Dems and their supporters are nothing if not predictable. Nice that some things never change. : )

Hey, Meathead . . .

Park it. Not that what you say has anything "to say."

Ask Gloria - she'll tell you.

A shocker that the convention went so well? Good gawd, the mentality level of some people! That Obama convention ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! Romney's was as pitiful as pitiful could be.

Obama WILL be re-elected!!!

North was embarrassing.

Meathead did good with Spinal Tap and Stand By Me, but Eastwood gave a great stand up routine.
