The Super Bowl is televised advertisings equivalent of the Cannes Film Festival, so White House political strategists must have been smiling when whats generally being hailed as this years best spot -- the Chrysler "Halftime in America" commercial -- subtly echoed the themes of President Barack Obamas reelection campaign.(snip)Just to ice the cake, the gritty two-minute spot featured actor/director Clint Eastwood, whose politics usually put him on the Republican side of the aisle. In the spot, Eastwoods voice narrates an account of Detroits comeback and, then, when his unmistakably craggy face appears on screen,

That’s it. No more Clint Eastwood flicks.
The list, Ping

Yhe “Talkes” all all abuz with comment about that ad. Many were expecting it to be produced by Ford not by a foreign car company bailed out by US.
When I heard it(wasn’t watching the TV at the time), I thought it WAS an 0bama campaign ad. When he said “halftime in America” I thought my wife and I were gonna throw up!
I thought Eastwood was quoted as saying he was NOT a fan of Der Bama...
This and the GE commercial were both blatant Obama 2012 commercials.
It was a depressing thing. Only a looser would need to try to explain why it was not really a looser.
I had the impression he was saying the current administration is the half-time, a breather if you want to call it that, and we are now ready to get on with the next "American Century". (we just need to be relieved of the a$$hat currently in the oval office.
BTW...Eastwood is a Republican.
I pray that Obama is the “halftime show”.
I’m pretty sure Eastwood is a libertarian, and not a fan of Obama. People are looking too hard into things.
It`s Half-Time in America and Obama is playing the part of the New England Patriots.
THe other half will still be played and we know what awaits America if this Obamination continues.
Me too. I thought he was actually mocking the Obama..
It’s ‘Halftime in America’ and America losing with team Obama.
What do you base your comment on?
Looser? Maybe we should tighten it up, mustn’t leave things loose...
Hell, Clint might be a Buddhist who enjoys llama racing and hot air ballooning naked...but when someone offers you $5MM to do a commercial, taxpayer dollars talk.
I agree with you totally! I was really surprised to hear those who thought it was about Obama.
It’s “loser” not “looser” and he is neither.
