Rush: Clint Eastwood succeeded in getting under Obama’s skin

Last night the Obama team tweeted out this photo after Clint Eastwood’s awesome ’empty chair’ performance on stage at the RNC:

Rush says this proves that Clint Eastwood succeeded in getting under Obama’s skin last night:

    Bwhahahaha….love it!

    • El Presidente’s ego extraordinaire couldn’t handle it. His presidency has been a miserable failure and he can’t hack the same Alinsky-esque tactics that he and his henchmen have employed and do employ on a seemingly regular basis. Another line from Mr. Eastwood’s Dirty Harry that fits the situation: “A man’s got to know his limitations.”

  • hbnolikeee

    you can tell who it is by the taxi doors.

  • RKflorida

    That picture is a fake!!!!! They cheated and put a booster seat on it for Obama.

    • FreeManWalking

      Sitting a little high off the floor, shouldn’t they strap his bike helmet for safety?

    • Mark Smith

      I was going to say they let him sit on a phone book at the bigboy table.

      • Now you all see he is not a smooth operator, Clint got him good and he had to show a picture of his back turned , we should be use to it her turned his back on us the day he took office. That pic speaks volumes.

  • princetrumpet


  • Mr. Ego can’t take it. Empty chair syndrome! Be a man like Clint Eastwood!

    • unclesamnephew

      dirty harry would ask him “are you feeling lucky punk?”

  • B-Funk

    It’s so easy to do. Now, Mitt, you keep up what Clint started, and we’ll have a fun run to November. ^_^

  • rls77

    Me thinks he doth protest too much.

  • Watchman74

    Enjoy that seat while you can Mr. President. You have 4 months left.

  • Betsey_Ross

    Wrong Barack. That seat is still ’empty’ and has been since Jan 20, 2009

    • Dukehoopsfan

      Empty seat, empty suit … no change since day one. Eastwood crushed it last night.

    • It’s just a head on a stick.

  • 4Hoppes2

    I can almost hear my old man cheering and laughing from heaven. Thanks Clint Eastwood, you can still make our day.

    • Dukehoopsfan

      To paraphrase a line from “Heartbreak Ridge”; Colonel: Gunny, how would you evaluate this presidency?

      Gunny Highway: Clusterf–k sir!

  • Bryan Ewbank

    Between big-ears O and the media machine’s responses, Clint definitely made an impact. The empty-chair was hard to pick up, but once you got it, you REALLY got it.

    • warpmine

      Oh, that was supposed to be Obama. I see. At first, I naturally thought it was our first black President, Bill Clinton.

  • This picture is a perfect depiction of his presidency, his back turned on the people and facing elsewhere.

    • nibblesyble

      That about sums it up!

    • JarrodThomas

      Not only that, but it shows that same “I won” attitude.

  • RocklinConservative

    Yeah … i recognize those ears.

    • keninil

      Big aren’t they !?

      • unclesamnephew

        but they are not as big as his ego nor his distain of all things AMERICAN!

  • Sober_Thinking

    Lol… there’s an arse in that seat but it’s still quite empty. That must make Clint’s day. 🙂

  • Bryan Ewbank

    I think it was actually a stock photo – looks like this is a zoom in…

  • kong1967

    Obama tells us the “C” comment about Palin is no big deal because Bill Maher is just a comedian so it’s not something to be offended over. Yet, someone jokes about him in a much less offensive manner and he goes and cries to mommy. Oh, that’s right, his mommy abandoned his sorry a**.

    • warpmine

      It’s the crux of the matter isn’t it…… shoulder to cry upon.

      • kong1967

        Lol, I think you’re right.

  • Alinsky Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

    That’s why it worked and that’s why the libs are livid over this!

    Finally, FINALLY, someone decided to turn the tables on those traitors.

    Now — I’m disgusted by the reactions of some wusses on our side. “Yeah, that was a little weird… blah blah blah.”

    SHUT UP! That was PERFECT!

    That’s what Breitbart said the right needed to do for YEARS. Just thought I’d throw that in there because, incidentally, I just finished Andrew’s amazing book.

    Thanks, Clint! You made our day!

    Honestly, I think that a VAST majority of people really enjoyed what he did last night. And once again, the left’s reaction proves that what he did was efficient.

    • nibblesyble

      Exactly.. it was pure bliss watching Eastwood last night and the obama media hated him for going after their savior.

  • SKL53

    The empty chair depicts the empty suit!

  • badbadlibs

    Just shows us what a narcissist he really is…and why does his head look so puny in that chair….ewww.

  • warpmine

    What was that er lunch time?


  • 12grace

    Bravo, Clint Eastwood.

    Of course, the left is beating Clint up on Huff Po.

  • GuessWhoFan

    Not for long it’s not.

  • enwpt0wa

    He is so thin-skinned, it probably doesn’t take much to get him riled. BooHoo!!!!

  • Orangeone

    Scoop, any chance Hannity’s rebroadcast of the Hope and Change documentary could be posted on your site tonight and tomorrow night? Some of us don’t have cable.

    Thanks Scoop.

  • wodiej

    Eastwood was great. I’ve never seen such an arrogant, juvenile acting president.

  • ArizonaPaul

    Typical. Mr. Thin-skinned. Can you imagine George W. complaining every time the Left said something about him? They would have said he was a big whiner. Well, Left, look at your guy!

  • Theconservativechic

    It won’t be for long, Obama! You, sir, are finished! I hope someone blesses the white house with Holy Water and Blessed Salt to keep evil from entering. Cardinal Dolan should have Mass held to rid of all the evil in that house.

    • I think you spelled that wrong … it should be “You, cur, are finished!”

  • Very true… Obama is very thin skinned

  • Bucketheadbaptist

    Due to the lack of Male influence in the President’s formative years… one can assume he grabbed onto some of the images and icons of masculinity from Pop culture… of which Clint would have been near the top of the list. Clint radiates Masculine role model for 2 or 3 generations of men in this country… and he just pwned the President.

    Oh yeah… Clint got under his skin alright.

  • stage9


    That’s what we have a problem with.

    • unclesamnephew

      was the occupier of our White House looking over his last golf score? it sure wasn’t a plan to recover our economy

  • If we can keep the pressure on Obama, maybe he will begin to have keniption fits like Hitler did in his last days!

    • p m

      A great post right here at TRS linked to this adaptation of zero finding out about Paul Ryan being VP. It’s hysterically funny.

      This is good too, from the same poster I think

  • It’s not that hard to get under Obama’s skin, it’s so thin.

  • pslinger


  • bayway48

    This was TOTALLY effective! It did the job! Well done Mr. Eastwood. At my work, I am the political guru. Everyone comes to me for advice or my take on a situation. Today, however, everyone stopped me and asked me how high my happy dance was last night. I replied with…”Romney’s speech was great….he made the connection!” NO NO not that….were are talking about Clint Eastwood! That’s all we have been hearing on the news and radio. Clint Eastwood’s speech last night injected alot of adrenalin to a VERY silent majority. HE MADE THEIR DAY…and mine!

  • “You’ve got me, under your skin.

    You’ve got me deep in the heart of you.

    So deep in your heart that I’m really a part of you.

    You’ve got me under your skin.

    You tried so not to give in.

    You said to yourself: this election will never go as planned.

    But why should you try to resist when, baby, you know down well,

    You got me under your skin?”

    See you at the polls, you narcissistic bastard!

  • A friend of mine just emailed me this picture of the back of Obama’s head and said, “hey good buddy, got your ears on”. I know it is juvenile at best, but I still found it to be funny.


    I think O-BLAME-O has been backed in to a corner.

    Unfortuantely, O’s escape plan always has been to warm up our

    B -2s. We have heard the war drums banging for while now.

    Neten has waited as long as he can, and now he has the most leverage with DNC Convention coming up.

    Man, he plays it tough like Mitt, RYAN, and CLINT.

    O-O-O does not want to help ISRAEL, but is being dragged to is because he wants to WAG THE DOG…..and somehow avoid upsetting his base, but for some reason he has NO white voters anymore. And reason Romney has no black voters…anymore…lying in the media, it defies description.

    I really hate it, but OH always has the cards.

    RACE card, WAR card, MSM Card, LIES card, etc.

    To get elected, OBOZO will play WAR card, MILITARY is ready (new additional strike team sent there, is big deal).

    If we got to stop IRAN, OH-uh-oh will have to be on OUR side so he can sit back and TAKE credit, and it could mean he get re-elected.

    These days he is saying and acting like a REAL President.

    A$$ is in a crack, since all the data is in now, and he really is a PUNK.

    Lets hope the American people are smart enough to figure this out.

    We have the greatest MILITARY, Shi$$y MEDIA, and lousy failed PREZI.

    I like our chances.

  • lambfound

    There won’t be any BO in that chair for long…..

  • 911Infidel

    Poor Kenyan-boy, he got mocked for his ineptitude. Poor baby…Yeah this seat is taken all right…until January. Then he can vacate that chair and go play golf somewhere. I hear the weather is nice in Kenya. Maybe he go for a ride on the Choom bus around the block. Since he’s got 15 million bucks he can always go hang out with the Kennedy’s on Marthas Vineyard. Or he can go hang out with Rahm Dead Fish and help Rahm be an ever greater failure in Chicago.

    • unclesamnephew

      but the problem with that is we will still be paying. i would feel better if the cost was for a cot behind bars

      • 911Infidel

        Great idea. Except he ain’t no citizen. He’s a fraud. Rather than jail time, I’d like to see him thrown out of the country and his travel permit back to this country revoked along with his faux citizenship.

      • 911Infidel

        Great idea. Except he ain’t no citizen. He’s a fraud. Rather than jail time, I’d like to see him thrown out of the country and his travel permit back to this country revoked along with his faux citizenship.

        • Jay

          I think he’s a citizen. I’m with the idea that Frank Marshall Davis is his real father. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.

          • 911Infidel

            He admitted in his own Bio that he isn’t.His mothers passport records would straighten out that question. But suddenly they disappeared. Gee I wonder why? (sarc)

  • toongoon

    Alfred E. Newman is sitting in the presidents chair? Cool. Usually it’s empty.


    • Sandra123456

      That’s the first thing I thought of seeing this pic!

  • Obama is in the wrong country…this country is not a dictatorship!!! Start packing Obama!

  • nehemiahreturns

    Not for long, Bud – the chair belongs to us.

  • tshtsh

    Wow, he is at a meeting! It must be used as a loop with all those tee times.

  • AsianGal4Sarah

    Is that Curious George. LOL

  • Jay

    0 is such a little person, letting a movie star get to him like that. Good job, Clint. As the philosopher Harold Callahan once said, “A man has got to know his limitations.”

  • cheyennecowboy

    Rush, you’re absolutely correct! I’ve thought from the time I saw it…, what a great and very subtle message. JUST ANOTHER EMPTY SUIT IN AN EMPTY CHAIR! Clint Eastwood is brilliant! And it didn’t take long for “mr. thin skinned” to get the message either, did it? odumba, you’re so predictable…..just can’t take criticism, you’re a very small man. You can’t admit a mistake. Perhaps, you aren’t even smart enough to realize your entire life has been a mistake. LITERALLY AND FIGURATIVELY.

  • drphibes

    The Man With No Name really got under the skin of The Chair With No Man.

    Rush nails it – Eastwood’s quotable lines were powerful because they were dead simple. And the Left all got the same memo to criticize Clint. Predictable.

  • Jerseygalnny

    Rush is right, and Obama is soooo thin-skinned!
