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."

I don't think Clint's speech will seem so odd when The Obama's are moving out of The White House next year.

I have to agree with Rob. Clint Eastwood WAS embarrassing to himself AND disrespectful to The President Of The United States.

I think liberal celebs should shut up about their politics as they often help the other party to get elected and vice versa.

Yeah Eastwood will go down in history as one of the best actors in directors, you'll be lucky to be a footnote you liberal douche bag. If Clint's speech had been directed at Romney all you libtards would be falling over yourselves to proclaim how brilliant it was.

Funny how hollyweird actors and directors all squeal about the rich not paying their taxes, but first chance they get to avoid paying taxes by filming in Vancouver they take it. S***!

Just about everything associated with politics is embarrassing in today's world. I'm not pleased with either party very much. But Clint is Clint, he's earned our respect, and whether we agreed with him or not, it got people thinking and talking, and that's pretty awesome!

I thinki Old Geezer Eastwood acts the same in every movie anyway but you have to respect that he has built up a successful movie career. But that bit at the RNC was not only embarrassing but was stupid, childish and disrespectful, not to mention totally crude and bordering on senility.l
