Clint Eastwood: President Obama is a “nice fella,” but he’s “not a fan.”

Uh oh. Sure, Eastwood has always been one of Hollywood’s few right-leaning/libertarian celebrities, but he’s also revered as a cultural icon. Once the damn breaks among the cultural elites, what constituency will Obama have left?:

Clint Eastwood, legendary actor and director, told Katie Couric that while President Obama is a “nice fella,” he’s “not a fan of what he’s doing at the moment.”

During an interview about his latest film “Hereafter,” Eastwood told Couric that the president is not “governing” and he’s laying out lines in the hopes that people will believe him “so he can stay in his position.”

Eastwood, who was once the Mayor of Carmel, Calif., expressed his view on the political election process.

“I don’t think there’s anybody I see out there, or many people that have that kind of discipline, that are willing to take a chance on losing.”
