Remember that time Arnold Palmer told Clint Eastwood he was going too slow? No? Relive the moment up here, then learn why golf no longer wants to be a slow man’s game over here.

So yeah, Eastwood’s attack — totally not bugging Obama at all.

Bill O’Reilly on who he’d elect for president, if he could pick anyone: “Clint Eastwood would have to be my guy.”
Jon Stewart: ”Well, why don’t we go ask him?” *gets out of chair and starts talking to it*

The Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile, and the Republicans knew I was.
Clint Eastwood • On Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, this afternoon, regarding his now infamous address of an invisible President Obama. During Eastwood’s appearance, the actor also took a moment to re-affirm his support for same-sex marriage, citing his Libertarian beliefs, and told Ellen that believes the government should just “leave everybody alone!” We expect a Chris Crocker mash-up any minute now. source

President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.
Clint Eastwood • Reacting to the negative reaction (particularly from the left) his RNC speech drew. Eastwood spoke to his tiny local paper, the Carmel Pine Cone, in the first interview he gave since the speech. (Eastwood was once mayor of Carmel, Calif.) Regarding how Eastwood got away with such a strange speech, he made this claim: “They vett most of the people, but I told them, ‘You can’t do that with me, because I don’t know what I’m going to say.’” Turns out it involved talking to a chair.

The prop person probably thought he was going to sit in it.
A senior Romney aide, regarding just how the campaign allowed a now infamous moment to take place during the RNC’s climactic night. Surprise speaker Clint Eastwood reportedly asked a member of the backstage staff for a chair, without giving any specifics on why he wanted it. Obviously, the production team had every reason to comply – Clint Eastwood asks you for a chair, and what, you aren’t going to give it to him? The reward for that attentiveness – the most memorably bizarre distractions from a nomination speech in recent history.

l am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama. It was meant to be a message about job growth and the spirit of America. … If Obama or any other politician wants to run with the spirit of that ad, go for it.
Clint Eastwood • Speaking to Bill O’Reilly about the "It’s Halftime in America" Super Bowl ad he did for Chrysler, which has sparked speculation as to whether he intended a specific political endorsement for the ad. He did not. It’s worth noting that, no, he did not support the auto bailouts, and he’s a lifelong Republican who has only voted for one Democrat as far as he can remember: Former California Gov. Gray Davis in 1998. The effective ad, a political fireball reminiscent of Ronald Reagan’s "It’s Morning in America Again" ad from 1984, has drawn scrutiny from some on the right — Karl Rove suggested the Obama administration was using Chrysler to make indirect political ads for them. With Eastwood’s comments, it’s clear things are more complicated than that.
