Clint Eastwood defends his 'invisible Obama' speech9/7/2012
For the past week, Clint Eastwood’s talking-to-a-chair speech at the Republican National Convention has been widely mocked and critiqued. This week, the actor-director gave an interview to the Carmel Pine Cone (in Carmel, Calif., where Eastwood was mayor in the 1980s). Eastwood told the paper he wanted to convey that “not everybody in Hollywood is on the left,” “Obama has broken a lot of the promises” he made and that voters should get rid of “any politician who’s not doing a good job.” He said his remarks were largely unscripted and that it wasn’t until he was backstage that he was inspired to use the chair.
