It's Halftime America

Here's a Clint Eastwood commercial for Chrysler that's causing a lot of controversy in the US. It was played at Halftime of the Super Bowl (I watched the game without commercials, so I did not see it until I saw references to it and went and found it on YouTube).

The reason it's so controversial is that a lot of people see it as supporting President Obama - a charge that Eastwood denies (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Let's go to the videotape.

When you're getting blown out at Halftime, you get a new game plan. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for those of us who would like to see him defeated in November), Obama is closing his eyes to the scoreboard and continuing with the old game plan.

So, the very wily Clint Eastwood wants to act oblivious now?

@Drudge_Report REPORT: Ad firm that wrote Eastwood ad worked for Obama campaign.... http://drudge.tw/AxXIeg

And I read that they didn't film it in Detroit. And Mark Steyn pointed out on the radio that the ad is Chrysler's, which is now over half owned by Italian Fiat, with cars made in Ontario and Mexico.

So, I'm thinking Clint Eastwood could have put out a message of grit and encouragement without being lined up with Obama, bailed out car companies, foreign owned entities, etc. The message he needed to promulgate is to reduce interference in American excellence. I really don't want America to be a collective urban ghetto place (I lived just outside Detroit... even back then, it was not an example of beauty.)

'I am not affiliated with Obama': Clint Eastwood defends himself saying gritty Motor City Super Bowl ad was NOT politically slanted

Whoa. Such a perfect example of how the marcuse marxist New Left of California has co-opted even traditionally solid people. Steeped in politically correct lying media and peers, these people (I know some) can no longer even see that they can't front for the marxists while maintaining their previous values. They think they are, and literally can't see the 5 bullet points at the link nor how their abdication damages their country.

Two parodies, one more cynical than the other.
