He thinks Obama’s the ‘greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people’. Too bad we think he’s finally lost his marbles.

“President [Barack] Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told the paper. “[Mitt] Romney and [Paul] 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.”

Eastwood sounded far from defensive over criticism of his self-described “very unorthodox” speaking style, freely admitting, “I really don’t know how to” give a traditional public address. He added: “That’s what happens when you don’t have a written-out speech.”

In his opinion, Eastwood said his critics in the media “are obviously on the left” and would be critical of him no matter what he said. As for Eastwood’s fans? Well, not all of them loved the speech, but it doesn’t seem to have changed their affection for the Academy Award winner.

“They’ve got this crazy actor who’s 82 years old up there in a suit,” Eastwood said. “I was a mayor, and they’re probably thinking I know how to give a speech, but even when I was mayor I never gave speeches. I gave talks.”

As for his now infamous conversation with an empty chair, Eastwood says he came up with the idea just moments before taking the stage.

“There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down,” Eastwood said. “When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I’ll just put the stool out there, and I’ll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn’t keep all of the promises he made to everybody.”

Right…we’re still confused why the heads over in Republican land thought Mr. Burns Clint was the best choice.
