Clint shockingly dissed President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention on Thursday Aug. 30 — shame on him!

Clint Eastwood, a respected icon in the film community, is receiving bad reviews for his latest performance — a bizarre endorsement for Mitt Romneywhere the actor/director insulted President Barack Obama at the Republican National Convention on Aug. 30.

Clint, 82, carried on an awkward conversation with an empty chair, an imaginary President Barack Obama — telling him that he failed to deliver on his promises, and it’s time for Mitt and Paul Ryan to take over.

“How do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? I mean, what do you say to people?” Clint asked, after addressing him as “Mr. Obama” at one point — another insult!

“When somebody doesn’t do the job, you gotta let ’em go,” Clint added and then drew a finger across his throat.

Even worse, Clint insinuated that President Obama would use the “F” word — ultimately insulting the leader of our country. “What? What do you want me to tell Romney? I can’t tell him to do that,” Clint said. “He can’t do that to himself.”

The Obama campaign shot back by tweeting a photo of the back of a chair, with Obama’s head peaking over, along with the caption, “This seat’s taken.”

“Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic,” tweeted film critic Roger Ebert, one of many who were outraged by the speech.

Saturday Night Live cast member Seth Myers made light of the situation saying, “[Vice President Joe] Biden has to go shirtless for DNC to top it.”

The Romney campaign issued a statement on Aug. 30 saying Eastwood was “ad libbing” and the thousands of people packed into the arena “enjoyed it.”

How do YOU feel, HollywoodLifers? Were Clint’s remarks funny or out of line?

The merits in the article are outweighed by its flaws. “Clint asked, after addressing him as “Mr. Obama” at one point — another insult!”
Really!!!! Really!!!!
Referring to the President as Mr. Obama is hardly an insult. While I and many others would use the term Mr. President, or President Obama, our President refers to himself as “I’m Barack Obama” in almost all of his commercials. I hardly feel like I could be insulting someone who comes into my living room and introduces himself thusly, by saying:

“Nice to meet you Mr. Obama”

Wow, HollywoodLife, what a shame that even a gossip site has been infected with liberal bias. This is (as of now) a free country with free speech. Clint was way in line.

He was just telling the truth. When we people wake up and realize that Obama has not done what he said…Whether you are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Consertive or whatEVER…Mr Eastwood made one statement that ALL have to agree with. WE own this country and THEY work for us! And when THEY don’t do their job (such as the current POTUS) they need to be let go.

where was Eastwood to give Bush a similar “job review” in 2004? cause you can complain about obama all you want, and some will be justified, but Bush had a worse employment rate and deficit back in 2004, and I don’t see any republicans wanting to kick his butt out then either. What Eastwood did was disrespectful and unbecoming of him, nothing’s more tacky then doing a slit gesture at your neck like he did.

not true that Bush had a worse UNemployment rate and deficit in 2004. The unemployment rate began 2004 as 5.7% and ended as 5,4% and the budget deficit was 568 billion, far less than the 1.5, 1,3, 1,3, and 1.1 trillion dollar deficits Obama has run.

To B. HUSSEIN Obama, the truth hurts. Actually I think B HUSSEIN Obama has a mental illness as do most PATHOLOGICAL LIARS! Muslim brotherhood /Radical Islam to be B. HUSSEIN Obama’s key note speakers at the DNC. LEADING FROM BEHIND Jarrett, Hillery, Wisserman. TOTALLY A TITULAR President! surrounded by domestic terrorists! Of course BHO isn’t Muslim, was born in the USA, loves America, isn’t gay, (sure) IS TRANSPARENT, HIS FATHER IS EITHER DAVIS, OR OBAMA, LARRY SINCLAIR IS A LIAR(NOT) WILL TRY TO STEAL THE ELECTION BY STARTING RACE WARS, SO HE CAN IMPLEMENT MARSHALL LAW, AGENDA 21, CONCENTRATION FEMA CAMPS. He has already kicked the black Americans under his million dollar bus, their unemployment is closer to 22 %, and he has them all on food stamps, and other government handouts, but the SHEEPLE will vote on skin color, personality and lies they know are lies, but just don’t have the intelligence to realize the ramifications of 4 more years with this Illuminati controlled micro chipped entity.

You people on here have got to be kidding me with not understanding how DISRESPECTFUL that was. This is the presidency we’re talking about, not some back alley street fight. All of you on here have no patriotism at all and no respect for the office of the presidency if you don’t find fault with this. It was wrong when they said horrible things about Bush and it’s wrong NOW. At the the convention no less. Regardless of party lines or feelings about Obama, the office being insulted in this manner is too low even for the rats to bite.

So it is ok for Obama’s campaign to blame Mitt Romney for the death of a lady who had cancer and for other celebrities to say that Hurricane Isaac should hit the RNC and kill Republicans (Ellen Barkin/Samuel L Jackson) but it isnt ok for.Clint Eastwood to put on a skit about Obama and insinuate that the imanginary Obama said the F word? Seriously? Do you see just how biased you are being?

Focus on things that matter! 23 million people with out jobs, 5 TRILLION added to the deficit, 716 BILLION cut from Medicare, the list goes on and on.

No logic in your comparison unless Ellen Barkin and Samuel L Jackson say it at the DNC. Why are there so many crazy Republicans? I mean it’s not just one or two. Have you people been infected with some “crazy” virus? Mitt’s proposed budget would add trillions to the deficit, fool. Why don’t you read something useful?

Well said. It is about the our respect for THE WHITEHOUSE, not either party besting one another. It was a disgrace and just speaks to how loose and insensitive that many are and have become.

Obama and Robert Pattinson

LOL, Obama is copying Robert Pattinson. Whining and playing the sympathy card will not win anyone. It didn’t work for Cosmopolis, a huge flop, and he will not work for Obama2012.

I’m not insulted; he’s done a damn good job considering the destruction that Bush left behind. I wouldn’t even feel good about Bush being offended but it was quite frightening to see people at the convention applaud and whoop and holler when Bush’s name was mentioned when even after he nearly destroyed this country.

I’m not sure why you are outraged. He is a registered republican and has been for a long time. He doesn’t like the job Obama has done. Just because your an actor in Hollywood doesn’t mean you are an automatic Democrat. The fact you think it was out of line is ridiculous.
