That Chair Was Racist (Clint's empty chair was meant to make a black man inconsequential /s)
American Thinker ^ | 08/31/2012 | William L. Gensert

Who does Clint Eastwood think he is? Having an empty chair next to him on stage while he pretended to talk to a non-existent Barack Obama supposedly sitting in that chair was racism. It was intended to make our President seem small, inconsequential, like a black man who doesn't count -- or counts at most as 3/5 of a person.

Was the empty chair a metaphor for Barack Obama as an empty suit, or an emperor with no clothes? This is clearly code for society's assumption that a black man cannot be taken seriously and is not up to the job.

Towering above the empty chair Eastwood talked down to an imaginary Barack Obama. A black man does not need to be talked down to by a white man, especially a white man who is famous for playing characters always armed and dangerous.

And where does he get off mentioning the President's record of failure? Barack Obama doesn't need a record of success. He is Barack Obama, and that should be enough.

Wait...I'm sure some pundits on the left will make all the arguments above, and maybe throw in the fact that when he called for Obama's firing and drew his hand across his neck it was a coded message for the President's lynching.

To my mind, the RNC, Romney, Convention manager, et al missed an opportunity that would bite to the heart of the problem with the Orator Obama - instead of an empty chair, Clint should have been addressing a TOTUS next to his podium emblazoned with the Presidential SEAL...

Here we go again. Liberals deliberately taking offence for an imagined slight.

Once again, their self-loathing on display!

Barack Obama doesn’t need a record of success. He is Barack Obama, and that should be enough.

According to Chris Matthews, any reference to objects listed in this secret right-wing code book is considered racist.

A true racist would do all in their power to keep Obama in office. He is doing more harm to blacks and Jews than any KKK or Skin Head group could hope for.

Frankly, Clint, (and with all due respect)if you are going to steal/satirize/re-contexturalize, you could have done better than ‘Roger and Me’. Sort of like doing a cover of a Shaggs tune instead of a Beatles one.

It was awesome.

Only way it could have been better is if they has put an empty suit in the chair.

Libs can’t stand this.
Keep it up.
Maybe their heads will start exploding like the Martians exposed to Slim Whitman music.

Obama flipped off Hillary

Obama flipped off McCain

Proof of these events is easy to find, on line. Obama is a classless jerk.

It was entirely appropriate for someone to point out the foul, juvenile personality of Obama, as Clint Eastwood did.

counts at most as 3/5 of a person

Dumbest canard ever. The whole freaking point of the 3/5 rule was to limit the power of the slave states by reducing how much they could pad their population count with slaves. It made no distinction as the the relative worth of the individual, it was intended to prevent the slave states from running roughshod over the free states in the House of Representatives.

Well, they could have had an empty suit draped over the chair.
