Brief transcript follows...

President Obama: Thank you so much for coming today, Mr. Eastwood! I can't tell you what an honor this is to have you here... Michelle and I are such big fans! I think I've probably seen most all of your movies and your career as a director... um... excuse me...?

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: Oh... well... this is your day, sir... um,  here, at the White House. And if you need anything just ask me, or any of the staff, and we'll be happy to... pardon...?

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: Well, to be totally honest with you, I'd have to say, yes! I feel very fortunate, and blessed... I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful girls and we all have good health. I was able to stop smoking... I'm probably in the best shape of my entire life... and... beg pardon...?

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: (laughing) Amen! The last three years have been a real education for me... I tried really hard on that whole bipartisan thing, and you're right, looking back, I think I stretched all credible limits... but... you know, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice... um... what's that...?

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: (laughing) True that! And, you know, some sure smell a lot worse than others... but, respectfully, I would ask you to watch the language around Sasha and Malia....

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: ... and... um, could you stop spitting the tobacco juice at Bo? Thanks...  By the way, I feel like I ought to ask you about that chair you've got there... You certainly project yourself as a very fit and healthy man at eighty-two, and I can't help but wonder at how....

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: Well I'm very glad that that particular social program has been available for you... that's one thing that Mr Ryan and I have agreed upon is trimming $700 billion of waste, fraud, and abuse... um... your Hoverround being a good example, and... um....

Mr. Eastwood:

President Obama: ... Um, sorry... No, sir...  I don't think I want to do that. But, thank you for such a fine example of how to do it with your performance at the RNC....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
