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."

Who cares what you think! You probably would have found it hilarious and brilliant if the chair were meant for Mitt.

Oh my God, Clint spoke blasphemy against Rob Rieners God, Obama. I thought what Clint did was brilliant. Amazing how people who disagree can twist the situation by their deliberate negative messaging and democrats are good at that

Obama is:
-- the man who surrounds himself with and seeks the advice of only the radical left and worse
--the man who redistributes (loots) the earnings of the producers to the non-producers so they will continue to vote for him
--the man who embraces the ideas of Saul Alinsky, Jeremiah Wright & Karl Marx.
--the man who refuses to take questions.
--the man who supports Occupation Wall St.
--the man who is spending and manipulating the greatest country on earth into financial collapse.
--the man who speaks of "social justice" but never of freedom.
--the man who hates free market capitalism.
--the man who prevents the development of our oil, coal & nuclear resources.
--the man who rejects the Constitution.
--the man who initiates force against us all by “mandating” his health care scam. A true despot.

He is, at best, a cheap Chicago left-wing politician who cares only that he get re-elected to a position he is grotesquely unequipped for -- yet doesn’t take even that position seriously enough to read Economics 101.

I really laugh at all these Hollywood millionairs acting like they are LIBERALS to make themselves feel better about making so much money just by remembering lines. They don't care anymore about poor people than the rich politicians do. Are they giving away any of their money to poor people, NO, most of them are sniffing it up their nose, or shooting it into their arms. They are as FAKE as the movies they make.
At least Clint has the guts to go against most of the Hollywood rich dummies that act like they like Obama, to show they are not racists, ha ha ! If Obama was ALL white they wouldn't "love" him as much, or at least pretend to.

Oh sure, Eastwood was an embarrassment - that is why everyoneis STILL talking about him, while Eva Lawnmoweria said what??? at the Demo coven meeting in N. Carolina?
What did she say? and who made the effort to watch or listen - now that is embarrasing - it was Lawnmoweria who spoke for The Empty Chair, but what did she say?

Truth    

It was so "embarrassing" that Dems are STILL trying to refute it over a week later. All they could trot out at their convention was some lame actresses and Kumar. THAT really made a mark didn't it? LOL

let's see if we can even remember what Eva Lawnmoweria said for The Empty Chair..? Ohh, can't remember? You didn't watch either? That is embarrasing.,, Getting Senile Rob? Or just so drunk you can't remember?-don't worry, no one else can remember what she said, either.

But America will never forget "The Empty Chair."

She's baaaack    

He's right. That was a mess. Clint himself had absolutely no outline, nothing, until shortly before he took the stage. It seems Mr Eastwood might have a bit of megalomania.
