Obama tweets chair pic in response to Eastwood: 'This seat's taken' [Thought he didn't watch!]
The Hill ^ | 8/31/12 | Alicia Cohn

Posted on 08/31/2012 5:35:53 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

President Obama's campaign on Friday tweeted out a picture of Obama sitting in a chair marked "the president" along with the line: "This seat's taken."

The tweet follows Mitt Romney's official acceptance of the GOP presidential nomination at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night, as well as a unique speech by Actor Clint Eastwood. Eastwood, who spoke before Romney's introduction by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), addressed an empty chair on stage throughout his speech, saying "Mr. Obama" was sitting there.

We were led to believe Obamugabe doesn't watch the RNC.

Looks like Mr. Thinskin was caught lying. Again.

This seat's taken

It sure is, and in about two months it's going to be under new management.

'Taken' as opposed to 'earned'.

It's the Chicago way.

SO immature and thin-skinned....but I expect nothing less from this man-child.

I thought that was the problem.

Oh well. January's coming and the problem will be fixed.

Concerning Eastwood’s speech, the line “it was painful to watch” is an excellent marker to identify prissy white males with their panties in a wad.

Clint Eastwood was better than I could ever have imagined. I went to bed laughing and I woke up laughing.

Clint should have put an empty suit in the empty chair to make it more realistic.

By the way, Mr. Resident, WE own that chair, NOT YOU. And come January it’s going to have a new occupant!

Clint Eastwood was better than I could ever have imagined. I went to bed laughing and I woke up laughing.

It was a brilliant routine. The chair was pefect. Clint conjured up a hologram of a vile, tiny, diminished Illegal in the chair and proceeded to slice and dice him ten ways to heaven. It was like the comedian's routine with the dead terrorist dummy, except Clint didn't even need a dummy; he just created one out of thin air.

So I hope someone in the RNC realizes all they have to do to win this is let Zero’s narcissism get the best of him.

He’s a puke. Didn’t any body slap him around in high school? I’d shake his hand.

Even if Obummer thinks he is entitled to “the seat”, the chair is still EMPTY, just like his inflated head.

Americans put an empty suit in an empty chair...and expected results. NOT

If the ones who thought they’d give “O” a chance will admit their error and return to the real world, we will have a victory.

“O” has no frame of reference for the word ‘earn’

How can anyone expect he would deliver on JOBS or the ECONOMY? Those are alien concepts to him!

Unfortunately, for the millions of unemployed in America, JOBS and the ECONOMY are brutally real and every day facts-of-life.

“O” acts as if the situation in Europe (especially in Greece) is not relevant. He should be shaking in his shoes but instead, he thinks it's sufficient to keep reminding people that he ‘inherited’ the problem... AS IF decades of failed, wasteful and ruinous Liberal programs have NOT created our problem!

Actually I don’t know anyone that wants his seat. We are going to take his chair, however.

“President Obama’s campaign on Friday tweeted out a picture of Obama sitting in a chair marked”


His campaign put it out. He was probably too busy to watch it. Campaigning and fundraising while blacks drowned.

My guess is that Barry was glued to last night’s speeches. He’s the kind of guy who just has to watch.
