President Obama to Republicans: This Seat’s Taken

Following the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Clint Eastwood’s speeches during the 2012 Republican National Convention last night, President Barack Obama sent out a tweet from his Twitter account (@BarackObama) that caused a lot of attention.

During his speech to the RNC audience, Eastwood spoke to an empty seat as if it were the President. The action caused a lot of mixed emotions, but it gained a lot of attention. Romney gave his candidate speech soon thereafter.

Moments after the television coverage ended for the RNC, the Obama campaign sent out a tweet in reference to Eastwood’s speech: “This seat’s taken”. A picture from behind of the President sitting in a monogrammed chair that read “The President: January 20, 2009”. The photo went viral in social media, such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
