Since actor Clint Eastwood had his nationally-televised conversation with an empty chair at the RNC last Thursday night, "Eastwooding" and "The Empty Chair" have become featured on Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, Instagram and political blogs. All mock President Barack Obama's failed policies and are why even the most dedicated Obama-ites that are still without jobs after three years of at least 8.3 percent unemployment.
As a result, on this Labor Day 2012, a spontaneous anti-Obama symbol may be sighted in front yards throughout America: an empty chair. In fact September 3 has organically (or is it virally?) emerged as "National Empty Chair Day."
Sometimes you just have to "get rid" of someone if he doesn't do his job, Eastwood said to the empty chair last Thursday. And that's exactly what empty chairs in front yards throughout America will symbolize today.
Send your National Empty Chair Day celebration pho in to firstname.lastname@example.org for posting. Be sure to tell us where you saw the empty chair and if in your own front yard, why you're participating in the movement.
