Clint Eastwood Debates, Slams Invisible President Obama on Republican National Convention Stage

by at . Comments

Movie icon Clint Eastwood delivered an unscripted and bizarre endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Thursday night.

Taking the stage before Mitt Romney's speech to the party's national convention, Eastwood carried on a rambling "conversation" with an empty chair.

A chair occupied by an imaginary President Barack Obama. Seriously:

The Oscar-winning director criticized Obama for failing to turn the economy around and for wanting to close the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects.

"How do you handle the promises you've made? What do you say?" he asked the invisible Obama. "I know even some of the people in your party were disappointed."

At another, even stranger point, the 82-year-old Eastwood acted as if he were listening to imaginary Obama unleash a diatribe against Romney, poking Vice President Joe Biden and letting the convention audience "guess what the president said."

"He can't do that to himself. You're absolutely crazy!" Eastwood responded.

"You're getting as bad as Biden. Biden is the intellect in the Democratic Party. It's just kind of a grin with a body behind it."

At one point, Eastwood talked about the need for change.

"When somebody doesn't do the job, you gotta let 'em go," Eastwood said. Then the tough-guy actor of Dirty Harry fame drew a finger across his throat.

Backstage, stern-faced Romney aides winced for 10 minutes straight.

And the winner of this "debate" is ...

Obama is on his way out. Oprah and many just like her have abandoned Obama and for good reason. Any fool can see that Obama is spineless and is not a leader. He was never qualified and was a vote of desperation. He was the biggest mistake of this young century and hopefully he will cleanup up his trash on his way out. Only a fool would vote for this guy. He has been the ultimate disaster and we must never let this happen again.

First of all, It is totally disrectful to not address him as the President of the U.S. I didn't vote for that Jackass Bush but I respected the fact that He ran a race and he won it. As a matter of fact, alot of his garbage was left behind when his term was up. HE DIDNT DO SO GREAT FOR THE POOR PEOPLE AT ALL !
I lived in Massachusetts when Romney was governor, don't be so quick to count on him as a President. CLINT EAST WOOD IS OLD AND HE SHOULD STICK TO ACTING ! I dont think that Pres. Obama got alot of kicks from the "Good 'ol Boys."
HAS ANYONE SEEN ANY MIDDLE OR LOWER INCOME PEOPLE RAVE ABOUT THE REPUBLICANS RUNNING FOR OFFICE?
Tell me, what's wrong with raising the taxes of the rich? Haven't they prospered from this country?
They have many loopholes to protect their resources and whenever a working class citizen find how to benefit from that loophole, the change the laws.
