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."

Notice how the vitriol comes spewing out of libs mouths??? (eg.Ellen Barkin)Aren't libs supposed to be the "tolerant" ones??? They're only tolerant if you agree. I think it's just the opposite.

I expected that Rob would have been much harder on Clint. He's mellowed since his Meathead days.

Sorry to disagree with you Rob, but Clint's "talk" was brilliant! By his own admission, he just talked off the cuff, and it struck a chord; we were all thinking it!

Does anyone really think a committed liberal would say anything remotely kind about a Republican? The Obama fans forget the civil and free speech rights of a Republican and feel they are fair game if one dares open their mouth. Doesn't say much about Democrats... No More Years.

“Republican candidates had to appeal to their base, which is by and large elderly white people arguing with empty chairs."
Regarding the RNC choice to use Clintwood.
.
Quote from Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist, New York Times Columnist and Princeton Economics Professor, and MIT and Yale Graduate.
.....Kind of explains where all these angry posts supporting Clint are coming from.
