I don’t use Twitter or Facebook. Thank you for passing this info on.

My only problem is deciding what chair to use.

The only problem I have with deciding which empty chair to use is I used to have so many from my business, because the clientele is mostly former. Now that I have down-sized, the decision is easier.

Monday is Labor Day and therefore a holiday. How about Tuesday instead?

Just a suggestion.

what a minute, now is this to “pay tribute” in a “good way” like let’s a give a shoutout to odumbo, or is it a salute to Mr. Eastwood and his awesome summation of the current occupant? Because if it’s supposed to show support for the liar in chief, I’ll pass.

Pass this around:

Print this out, stick it on the back of a cheap plastic chair, and put it in your yard.

That’s what reader Sandy writes: Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday “empty chair day” Below is an image of my front lawn, just mowed, to ensure the emptychair looks right. The sign next to the chair says:

“We own this country . . . Politicians are employees of ours . . . And when somebody does not do the job, we’ve got to let them go.” –Clint Eastwood

This makes me think that if any Dems previously had empty chairs on their front porches, they will be swiftly removed. So spot those houses.

So does the mainscream media. They’re uncomfortable with any criticism of their boy and would prefer not to be reminded of the empty suit in the White House.

National Empty Chair Day (photos from around country)
Posted by William A. Jacobson Monday, September 3, 2012 at 12:10am

Excerpt:

UPDATE - No new submissions being accepted for now, the response was so overwhelming that there’s already a huge backlog.

Today is the impromptu National Empty Chair Day, which I covered on Saturday night when a reader alerted me to the idea. At the time there were about a half dozen tweets from @YouTooCongress, but little other attention.

Through the efforts of Prof. Glenn Reynolds, Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart.com, Michelle Malkin, Twitchy, and many others in the right blogosphere, National Empty Chair Day has spread far and wide in about 24 hours.

I just walked outside and there was an SUV literally stopped in the street in front of our Empty Chair. At first he had a quizzical look, then he started visibly belly-laughing out loud as he drove away.

The MSM wants us to believe Clint’s speech was a dud, or counterproductive. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Furthermore, it connected with our senior citizens, who were thrilled to see a compatriot speak at the convention despite his advancing age and less than perfect delivery.

This thing was a grand slam. Combined with “You didn’t build that,” its the epitaph on Obama’s “Hopes” for another term.

Someone needs to do a graphic of an empty chair as a tombstone, with “You didn’t build that” as the epitaph, for “Obama Campain 2012, R.I.P.”

You've got a point. I'm focused on what Obama didn't build.

As we know, the left howls about olympic scandal re: Romney. But, he made it happen... and after 9/11. I'm sure the left can't understand what that meant at the time.

Chicago has more scandal and didn't get the Olympics. Bring it up with a native.

And if Romney could get it done with a bribe, what does that say about the Chicago machine not getting it done?

I want them to jump on Romney more about this...

Leading the pigs to the trough. They're not thinking ahead to the connections this will bring out about the O... it will be nasty... complete with bodies.
