Obama tweeted a picture -- sent from the @BarackObama account, run by his campaign -- of him sitting in a chair marked "the President". His caption: "This seat's taken."

The tweet came not long after actor, director and former GOP politician Clint Eastwood made a rambling speech that featured him talking to an empty chair.

“So I’ve got Mr. Obama sitting here … Mr. President, how do you handle promises you’ve made?” he asked the chair. It gave no response.
