Apparently there are videos being posted on the Web of people scolding an empty chair.
Comments about Eastwood’s performance:
Awesome idea. Turn it into an internet meme to counteract the libs comments on Eastwood.
Now, what Hollyweird Leftist Whackjob will do a similar feature at the Dem Coven?.............
It won’t be funny.
It won’t be nice.
It won’t be civil.
It won’t be Rated G..............
#eastwooding needs to go viral!
This is good in the same way that Tebowing is good, because people eventually ask where the practice and name came from.
Decades from now, people will still be looking up and watching the original Eastwood speech, and thus its message (that Obama was a failure as president) will live on for generations.
I've been saying this on a number of posts this morning. Clint Eastwood opened the door to it being all right to openly criticize Obama, even to the point of ridicule. And I was thinking earlier, and this article makes me suspect it's true, even his appearance last night, the messed up hair, the sometimes stuttering approach, the supposed loss for words, it was one of the great political staged appearances I can remember. It was all an act. And the left has fallen for it, openly tweaking "dementia" in reference to his appearance.
Go ahead, media and you leftists. Make fools of yourselves.
I expect they will have to do it since the dems haven’t had an original idea in at least 3 years.
Taken to the ‘Eastwood shed’. Swiftboating. Eastwooding. Luv it...
Back in the ‘08 primary season when Obama began building momentum I repeatedly said that one of the main things bringing liberals and the media to his effort would be the ability to play the race card when anyone criticized or disagreed with him.
“This seat’s taken” will go down as one of the dumbest statements made by a politician ever.
1) It opens the door to all kinds of ridicule.
2) The underlying premise is that Obama somehow owns the seat—that it is his by right—instead of being on loan from the voters. You can’t “take” something that is on loan from another.
They did invent Borking.
They should make a video of Paul Ryan throwing an empty chair over a cliff :-)
The race card has become passe. It’s now used to discredit anything said against Obama, and the dems in general. Even referring to Chicago as Obama’s home is now considered racist, simply because of the population of Blacks living there. It’s absurd.
Eastwood opened the door. It’s OK to parody Obama. It’s OK if we decide to send him packing in November. We’re in charge. We voted him in. It’s OK to vote him out.
I think they should have had an empty suit in “Obama’s” chair...
Your second point is special. And beyond the permanency it implies, it unconsciously acknowledges the truth to Eastwood’s premise: We own the country. We own the White House. We own the CHAIR. It may be occupied now, but we’ll determine who the occupier is come November. And it’s all right now to openly criticize him, parody him, and ultimately oust him from office.
The empty chair was the empty suit. It wasn't hard to make the leap from the chair to the suit.
Put a faded red & blue Obama poster on the wall, and you’d have a great picture.
** Clint does good standup....
For the first time in my life I am metaphorically proud to covey my feelings to an empty chair.
Seniors all over the USA will not appreciate the Left’s disrespect for Clint Eastwood and seniors. And, why shouldn’t they, they support Death Panels for seniors. I’ve often described ObamaCare/DeathCare as the next Holocaust. You judge for yourself, or, see how you feel when you, too, or a member of your family, face a Big Bro/Obama/Pelosi/Reid death panel and are told that it is not cost-effective to give you life-saving treatment.
Four more years of this and we can all bend over and kiss our rears goodbye, in my opinion. What’s yours?
They haven’t had an original idea since the 1970’s. They still think socialism is all the rage.
Obama has been filling chairs his entire career. By now, he’s an expert.
Mine? The same as yours. This is the last gasp for America as a great country. Either we get this election right or we go down the crapper.
I’m a senior myself. I belong to an organization (two actually) that is made up mostly (98% perhaps) of seniors. I can tell you without consulting them what most will say about the left’s attack on Eastwood. They can go to Hell.
Last night/early this AM on the post-convention talking head shows, libs were both amused and apoplectic over Clint's routine. One young liberal woman on Chris Matthew's MSNBC panel - who I think was from Comedy Central - said: "I liked it... I thought it was a great piece of performance art. I'm just sorry that he's not on... on OUR SIDE." (my paraphrase)

I’m old enough to remember Jimmy Stewart doing Harvey and that’s what I saw Eastwood doing last night. It worked for me.
Continuing the trend that there’s an ass for every seat.
Eastwood served as the one who points out the inescapable fact that the emperor has no clothes.
The Greatest Piece of Performance Art in American Political History -- Ed Timperlake
Americans can hear hard messages coming from Clint. He has a certain immunity that comes with being old and beloved. Yes, some of his sentences did not complete themselves. Yes, he was a bit doddering. And yes, his F yourself jokes were crude. Grandpa sometimes embarrasses the family at birthdays and anniversaries by bringing up uncomfortable topics. But everyone also loves Grandpa, and realizes he tells the truth because he hasn't got that much longer with us, and doesn't give a damn anymore what people think. The one thing everyone remembers about the party afterward is when Grandpa mentioned the adultery, the grandkid who did drugs, or the other secrets that everyone prefers to keep their mouths shut about.
There are lots of truths about President Obama -- including that he really isn't such a nice guy -- that the media will not allow consideration of. Except from Grandpa.
So yes, MSNBC pundits, go on and on about "senile old Clint" or his "bizarre" presentation. Keep people thinking about the un-pc message he delivered.
Yep. Go ahead. Make our day. (spits)
Take that NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS, PBS, NPR, Washington Post, New York Times, Chris Matthews - all you so called journalists... all of you water carriers for white liberal elites. Eff yourselves...(Even if Eastwood says people can't do that to themselves...)
Take that NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS, PBS, NPR, Washington Post, New York Times, Chris Matthews - all you so called journalists... Who knows, oh8eleven - they might 'wake up' someday .... hmmmm crickets...
That picture is the best I have seen all day.

I know I looked at my husband and said he knew he could be funny? I thought it was funny. It’s OK to make fun of mentally disabled babies but not a grown man? I loved Clint Eastwood before now I love him even more.
He looked a little akward, but he sure put the left in angry bunched panties! (do they make depends panties?) LOLOL!
I don’t agree withh Eastwood on all things, but he has perfectly brought attention to the donkey in the room.
Well MSNBC did it first...Why isn’t called MSNBCing?
But just ask yourself: who are the libs totally freaked out about today? Clint.
Rush Limbaugh: "They will tell you who they fear."
Eastwood gave a magnificent performance. Frankly, I am pleasantly surprised WaPo used the stinging photo of Clint conversing with the empty chair.
When somebody is not doing their job, it is time for them to go...cue Hollywood sign for "cut."
LOL! Eastwood used a razor sharp knife, and twisted it expertly with each jab.
Imagine that--the actor famous for gunfights used a verbal knife to accomplish his task.
Everyone complains it is all staged.. And then some true spontaneity occurs, and we’re criticizes for that. Never kill your friends to placate your enmies.
Check out #42... you called it first! :-)
