Obama: Huge Clint Eastwood Fan, Not Offended by RNC Remarks

Says Eastwood a great actor and an even better director and that running for president requires a thick skin


President Obama wants to make it clear that, in his own words, "I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan."

"He is a great actor, and an even better director," the president said in an interview with USA TODAY aboard Air Force One, on his way to campaign rallies in Iowa Saturday. "I think the last few movies that he's made have been terrific."
