Chairs, Debates, Hurricanes and The Man Who Never Was
This is a brilliant dissertation on why things started to go South on Obama right after Eastwood spoke. I was a huge fan of his speech for the simple reason that someone “famous” finally spoke out against Obama. Dared to show everyone that the Marxist had no clothes.
One of the seminal events of the election season was Clint Eastwood’s appearance at the RNC. Granted, the Eastwood “speech” was a bit odd. But something happened in those moments that had previously not been seen by most Americans: the mocking of Barack Obama. Prior to that moment, the American media had a slobbering lovefest with the President and has consistently and steadfastly refused to expose his weaknesses. But the appearance of Eastwood at the biggest political event to date was something they could not ignore. And Eastwood delivered a stunning blow to the media’s narrative. He depicted Obama as “the empty chair“.
Prior to Eastwood’s Obama “interview”, had we seen that kind of public ridicule of Barack Obama? Of course the MSM did their sworn duty and tried to write it off as Eastwood being crazy and senile. But people heard it. They were watching the convention to see the mystery guest. And he delivered. The press couldn’t bury this one on page C6. It was front and center, in front of millions of voters.
And then came the debates. In that memorable first debate, Mitt Romney didn’t mock Obama. Obama did it to himself. The Empty Chair showed the world that Eastwood wasn’t just kidding. He was an empty suit that night, not an empty chair. Tens of millions of debate viewers finally saw the truth of Barack Obama, and the truth about Mitt Romney. Romney wasn’t the evil extremist painted by the MSM. He was presidential. And the President of the United States – was not. And in the final three debates, both Crazy Joe Biden and Obama showed themselves to be childish and petulant. Their behavior was rude, crude and socially unacceptable. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were the adults and the current occupants of the highest offices in the USA were boorish. Romney and Ryan looked like President and VP. Not Obama and Biden. Again – America saw the unfiltered truth about who Barack Obama is. And they didn’t like what they saw.
The press has spent 4+ years hiding the truth about Barack Obama, who, as Tony Blankley of the Washington Times pointed out in 2008, strongly resembles the Man Who Never Was. He’s an empty suit with a persona created by the adoring groupies of the press.
