Rob Reiner

Clint's RNC Speech Was

'Embarrassing'

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."

No, what was embarrassing was the Democrats shouting down the inclusion of God in their platform. showing how truly delusional they have become to think they can openly denounce God, yet garner the support of the over 50% of Americans who call themselves Christian. And let's be real, if Obumbler had given this speech, you all would have lauded it as revolutionary and visionary. But since it came from someone you disagree with, it was stupid, drunken, senility. Another "tolerant" move from the "tolerant" left.

I don't know about it being an embarrassment, that is a bit harsh. But as far as the DNC going better then the RNC, the proof is in the polls...


Before the conventions Obama and Romney were tied at 48%. After the conventions Romney 46% Obama 52% And it is not just that, for the first time in months Obama raised more money then Romney. Now all Obama has to do is keep the momentum going and do a good job in the debates.

but adding 5 trillion of debt in less than 4 years (Obama) isn't embarrassing, I'd wager.

I was so sad to see how Clint has gone down hill, he rambled and the whole thing was just weird. He made no sense and had our "empty chair"president saing rude vile things. I am a Republican and did not vote for Obama and will not vote for him this time either, however I do believe in showing respect to our president. It was not funny, clever or cute, it was a pitiful old man who has lost his way stumbling through what could hardly be called a speech by the longest strech of the immagination. Yup, embarrasing for sure!
