Sure: Obama, a ‘huge’ Clint Eastwood fan, not offended by skit

Oh right, we’re to believe President Empty Chair wasn’t butthurt over Clint Eastwood’s performance the other night. Well, except for this petulant tweet and caterwauling from his media palace guard.

The most thin-skinned president we’ve ever had also wants to you know how criticism and derisive humor  just bounces right off him.

President Obama wants to make it clear that, in his own words, “I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan.”

“He is a great actor, and an even better director,” the president said in an interview with USA TODAY aboard Air Force One, on his way to campaign rallies in Iowa Saturday. “I think the last few movies that he’s made have been terrific.”

However, Obama seemed less eager to review Eastwood’s latest performance, on stage at the Republican National Convention Thursday. The 82-year-old Hollywood icon introduced Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney with a rambling 12-minute improvisation that included a rude “interview” with an empty chair purportedly occupied by an invisible Obama.

Was he offended?

“One thing about being president or running for president — if you’re easily offended, you should probably choose another profession.” Obama said with a smile.

These people have taken feigned outrage to stratospheric levels these four miserable years, and he’s actually telling us he’s never offended? Please. Go back to community organizing, sport. The blood-stained streets of your neighborhood in Chicago could use some leadership.

Oh, go read the comments the Obots are churning out at the story. They’re as delusional as he is, if not more.

    You know, given that 99.99% of your posts consist of shrieking OUTRAGE!!! over whatever made-up fuss is itching your jammies every day, I don’t think you’re in much of a position to throw around phrases like “petulant,” “thin-skinned,” and “delusional,” but it’s funny as heck to watch.

    Bullpucky.

    Everyone I know has gone from laughing behind the President’s back in 2010 to openly mocking him now. “NOBAMA” t-shirts and hats and bumper stickers and signs are EVERYWHERE in my neighborhood.

    People at the bank, the supermarket, the gas station, they’re openly laughing at this buffoon. The dam has broken. Democrats are going to be washed out of history in November.

    Nobody self-respecting American wants to be in the party of pandering. You don’t tell people you’re a proud Democrat any more, you’re liable to get thrown out of the building.

    You do tell people though that Obamee was the lat Democrat you’ll ever vote for. That’ll get you applause.

    2012 will make 2010 look like a sunny day for the Democrat party. The beginning of the permanent Republican majority in this county begins in November.

    I love it. Obama responds with a cool as hell “not offended, I love Clint Eastwood the artist”, and YOU freak out. You are obviously so pissed that the president didn’t take the bait, but boy you sure did! Between the two of you, someone’s certainly offended, but it ain’t the President. Better luck next time, ace!

    That tweet wasn’t “petulant” at all. Maybe you’re the one with no sense of humor.

    Oh,and Jammie? I’m a proud Democrat.

    It’d been nice if he ceased with tweeting and visited the storm hit areas without being shamed into it. Like how he complained about Booooooooosh. Sooo, tell us; what’s the proudest part? The crappy economy, screwing over our allies (Poland) or the lobbying and general corruption. Speaking of “pride”, you must be very proud that Jon Corzine is still walking free.

    Cannot believe Obama would like any of Eastwood’s work. Most films Clint was the tough guy and Obama certainly isn’t. Obama gets the women to do his dirty work, it is above his pay grade.

    “It’d been nice if he ceased with tweeting and visited the storm hit areas without being shamed into it.”

    Well, yeah. He could have done something useful like tying upm much-needed emergency resources for the sake of an attention-seeking camera opportunity and made himself useful by up telling somebody who’d just been flooded out of her home and desperately needed urgent help that she should go home and dial 211.

    1. And this would be different from what he normally does….how?

    2. You conveniently forget that your dear leader leveled this complaint against the eeeeevvviiiilllll Booooooooooosh. It ain’t so nice when JEF gets smacked with the same point, huh?

    Buckle up princess. Romney is in the general campaign now. Your dear leader is getting the tough love he so richly deserves. Dissent is patriotic and all that.
