Eastwood Talks About Chair Act
Fox News ^ | September 07, 2012 | Associated Press

Posted on 09/07/2012 12:16:56 PM PDT by Ron C.

LOS ANGELES – Clint Eastwood said the idea to use an empty seat as a prop at the Republican National Convention was a spur-of-the-moment decision when someone backstage asked him if he wanted to sit down.

In his first interview since he attended the convention to pledge his support for Mitt Romney, Eastwood told the Carmel Pine Cone, a small California weekly newspaper, that his speech was not only unscripted, it was pretty much spontaneous.

"There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down," Eastwood told the newspaper, which published the article Friday. "When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I'll just put the stool out there and I'll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn't keep all of the promises he made to everybody."

Bottom-line of the piece:

"President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," Eastwood said. "Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that's what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle."

I still have an empty chair in my yard. That is my political sign and statement for this election season. Thank you Clint.

Obama is the empty presidency. The most vacant person to ever occupy the White House.

Ditto. Could not believe how GOOD I felt dropping that chair in the front yard...for some reason it was cathartic.

I've not seen too many chairs sitting in front yards in the Los Angeles area - but, I also know that such would likely bring late-night vandalism at its worst.

But - Eastwood's meme will become a forever remembered illustration of just what this presidency has been for the entire term in office. That along with the 'zero' meme will live on in history as the greatest illustration of Obama's incompetence.

As I’ve said elsewhere, Clint Eastwood did more to define Barack 0bama in 11 minutes than Mitt Romney has done in 14 months.

The power of ridicule, and satire, is enormous and it could not be used against a more deserving individual.

"Clint Eastwood did more to define Barack 0bama in 11 minutes...."

LOL - yes indeed!

I hope the empty chairs in yards all across America catches on more and more every day. That ridicule is spot on - and almost everyone knows it! Including, I think, very many Democrats.

He has a movie coming out very soon. I wonder how it is going to do in the theater. His normally do very well. Are the conservatives going to go see his new movie? I doubt I will because regardless of his goodness at the convention, he still believes in murdering babies and gay marriage. I guess everyone can make up their own minds on seeing his movie.

I'm thinking about a sign with ʘ's words:

"If I can't fix this economy in three years, I don't deserve a second term" with the date he said that and place it on a LARGE teleprompter type screen next to the chair. That ought to tick off the few libs in our neighborhood.

THIS SHOULD BE A CAMPAIGN BILLBOARD! What's the phone # to the Romney/Ryan campaign? They DESPERATELY need to see this.

It’d be a great billboard, but the bug-eyed zombie, lib-dem racists would turn it back on the dead Martin-thug quote from 0bummer. RR wouldn’t touch it with asbestos gloves. The Tea Party would have the cahones to use it, though.
