Obama says he wasn’t offended by Clint Eastwood’s speech. I guess he realized how bad it looks for the president of the United States to punch back at an entertainer, but it’s a little late for that now.
Obama gets this part right, though:
“One thing about being president or running for president – if you’re easily offended, you should probably choose another profession,” Obama told USA Today.
That’s true; which is why his first reaction is so telling.
