Karl Rove sees politics written all over Clint Eastwood's new Chrysler ad and even compares it to "Chicago-style politics."
"I was, frankly, offended by it," Rove said on Fox News Monday. "I'm a huge fan of Clint Eastwood, I thought it was an extremely well-done ad, but it is a sign of what happens when you have Chicago-style politics, and the President of the United States and his political minions are, in essence, using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising and the best-wishes of the management which is benefited by getting a bunch of our money that they'll never pay back."

Well about once a year I have to agree with Rove - I guess this will be it. Those were my thoughts exactly.
Fail. Not even Clint can convince me to buy a car for any other reason than quality and value.
I see it as a taxpayer-funded campaign ad for Obama, seeking the second half of his eight years.

You win the Drive by of the drive by comment award. Maybe read the article and/or see the ad and maybe, just maybe, you’d have a different take.
Yep Karl, I was offended too. But not as offended as I was by the eight years of sorry a$$ advice you gave President Bush. Please go away.
Karl Rove’s condescension offends me.
Clint Eastwood’s mercenary performance disappoints me.

Your drive by comment of the drive by comment on the drive by comment were a little snippy.
Indeed. Broken clock. Even 'the bastard' gets this one right.
Shut up Karl!
You are half right. It was snippy, but my comment was not drive by - it was researched.
That’s exactly what I thought. And I yelled it out during our party.
I read the short article but did not watch the video because I am in a tent in Kuwait. Bandwidth sux; not much chance of streaming anything to see any ad. Rove does generally offend me though. Are you the guy in charge of awards here?
Exactly. Where did 'ol Clint go? A guy who starred in "The Gauntlet" should be a conservative on Team Newt.
I was going to comment on your comment of the previous comment,but I decided to comment to my cat.
