The vice president says Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are dishonest when they blame Obama and the Democrats for the struggling economy. Biden says Romney and his running mate would have preferred the automakers shut down.

 

 

Ryan has said a General Motors plant in his hometown of Janesville, Wis., closed on Obama’s watch. Biden correctly notes the plant actually closed while President Bush was still president.

Obama says he’s a ‘huge Clint Eastwood fan’

President Barack Obama says he’s a “huge Clint Eastwood fan,” even in the aftermath of the actor’s rambling “invisible Obama” monologue at the GOP convention.

Obama says in an interview with USA Today released Sunday the Academy Award-winning Eastwood is “a great actor, and an even better director.” But Obama was coy when asked if he was offended by the performance.

Eastwood talked with an imaginary Obama in an empty chair before Mitt Romney’s speech at the GOP convention, saying the president has failed to deliver on his promises.

Obama says, quote, “if you’re easily offended, you should probably choose another profession.”

The president joked on Twitter after Eastwood’s appearance, tweeting that “this seat’s taken,” along with a photo of him in his chair at a Cabinet meeting.
