Clint Eastwood wasn’t the only one to debate an empty chair

To the Editor:

— Clint said “ Barack Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetuated on the American public. “ Clint used an empty chair as a prop at the Republican Convention to symbolize President Obama.

In essence, “four years of empty rhetoric, empty promises, 90 rounds of golf! Mr President, you haven’t been there for us!” is what he seemed to say. Since then I’ve seen a lot of empty chairs sitting prominently in peoples yards as unspoken testaments to their despair over the direction our country.  

Clint Eastwood interviewed an empty chair. Last week, Mitt Romney debated an empty chair.
