Super Bowl Halftime in America Ad......Hmmmmm ?
VANITY | 02-06-2012 | NEVERBLUFFER

Make no mistake about it. The "halftime" referred to in the Super Bowl halftime ad correlates to Obama's re-election strategy.

It is 100% an Obama propoganda taxpayer paid ad for his sole benefit, not Chrysler.

"Halftime" being referred to is 1/2 of a two term Presidency, and to sell the idea that he is only halfway done and he needs a 2nd term.

Thoughts?

Shilling for Obama?......some woman flipping everyone off?......hitting and kicking?......lots of booze?......sounds like the ex-wife’s family reunion.

Don’t know Clint’s feelings about Obama one way or the other, so hard to say what his intent was. Frankly, I found the ad confusing, unfocused; a murky “message”. Was he implying our country is at halftime? I mean, what the hell does that mean? Was it an ad for Obama’s re-election? I doubt it.

I find all the buzz about it amusing.

Baraq isn’t a football guy anyway.

His campaign slogan is “I’ll do better on the back nine”

I guarantee to you that the word “halftime” was deliberate and was used to introduce Obama’s new strategy for re-election.

You will hear him use this word while campaigning to refer to the fact that he needs four more years, because it is only halftime in his Presidency and he has more work to do!

I only heard a bit of it on the radio.

I took it to mean that we’re losing the game and our quarterback sucks, but the American spirit will survive and rebuild.

Maybe I just took it that way ‘cause I really hate to think of Clint Eastwood shilling for Zero

I was astounded at the negativity of the ad, " half time in America, we are all scared"...

It certainly was not Reagans' " It's morning in America".

Heck it made Carters' " put on a sweater & turn down the thermostat", sound positive.

But in reality it reflects where we are, rudderless, with out a true direction or leader.

THIS IS NOT A GAME.

There was a time when only HALF of a terminal patient's body is riddled with cancer cells.

There was a time when only HALF of the Titanic was underwater.

There was a time when only HALF of Europe had fallen to the Axis.

I read where the Clint Eastwood commercial about Detroit was filmed in New Orleans and LA. Guess it was too dangerous for him in Detroit. PS - the US at half-time is at 14 trillion dollars.

The only thing good about the Super Bowl yesterday was the game itself. The pre-game show (Including Barry the Kenyan Guy’s campaign ad with Obamabot Matty.), the commercials and the half time show all sucked. IMHO.

I thought the Chevy ad taking a shot at Ford should have concluded with, “I’m Barak Obama, and I approve this ad.”

It was a commercial that a company our tax dollars bailed out paid for.

What was so fantastic about a 53 year old woman singing a 20 year old song?

It’s really scary when a country worships an old has-been
ho like Madonna.

Michael Moore did.

Filmmaker Michael Moore tweeted, “And Clint, the consensus is u done a good thing standing up 4 Detroit–& your sermon seemed 2 b a call 2 give O his ‘second half.’”

David Axlerod was pleased

Exactly my thoughts as soon as I saw it. And here we are paying for it with our tax dollars. They know no bounds.

“The “halftime” referred to in the Super Bowl halftime ad correlates to Obama’s re-election strategy. It is 100% an Obama propoganda taxpayer paid ad for his sole benefit, not Chrysler.”

Believe it or not, Karl Rove said exactly the same thing. Hannity played a short clip of him talking about it earlier.

Elsewhere, I read that Clint Eastwood said he “doesn’t associate himself with Obama”. (Or words close to that.)
