When Clint Eastwood spoke at the Republican National Convention on Friday, at one point, he began berating an empty chair – as if it was occupied by Obama. What many people didn’t know – myself being one of them – this was yet another chapter in a longstanding feud with chairs.
In Eastwood’s ongoing chair feud, the most notable episode occurred in 2004, when a boxing stool maliciously attacked and crippled Clint’s ingénue, Hillary Swank, in the film “Million Dollar Baby.” Now it has become quite apparent that Eastwood has not yet recovered from these horribly tragic experiences. Taking out a chair must have been dreadfully overwhelming for him. I hope he has a top-notch shrink to help him through his internal struggle.
Below is a video that is a compilation of Eastwood’s most heated showdowns with chairs.

More serious thoughts about Clint Eastwood’s speech:
Eastwood did pretty much what all the other speakers did and that is Obama-bash. I made it about halfway through but couldn’t finish watching his speech since my respect for him vanished in a matter of mere seconds. Not because he is a Republican supporting Romney, but because he proved himself to be completely hypocritical and greedy. Eastwood was in the Super Bowl 2012 commercial supporting the resurgence and success of GM coming back from near closure to become number one once again. Although that commercial did not directly state Obama as the one who helped save GM, but it was indicated. Then for Eastwood to turn around and then start belittling our President — completely hypocritical. I also realized that Eastwood has no shame – for the right amount of money, he’ll say whatever you want.
If you haven’t seen his speech, here it is…. Oh, fyi… the only two businessmen who have become president were George W Bush, and Herbert Hoover. Read that how you want to….
