    Karl Rove ‘offended’ by Clint Eastwood’s Chrysler ad - The Washington Post

    A Chrysler ad aired during the Super Bowl Sunday night has inspired ire among some Republicans and admiration among some Democrats — with both sides seeing a political message that boosts President Obama.

    In an ad touting the resurgence of the American auto industry, Clint Eastwood declared that it’s “halftime in America and our second half’s about to begin,” which could be interpreted as a reference to Obama’s second term. 

    The ad’s themes seem to echo Obama’s own argument that his administration brought the auto industry back from the brink of disaster.

    “They almost lost everything,” Eastwood says of Detroit. “But we all pulled together. Now Motor City is fighting again.”

    “I was, frankly, offended by it,” said Karl Rove 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.”

    I thought the ad was well done and did not interpret it as political but unifying. I'm a conservative.

    Um ... I didn't get the impression that Chrysler was referring to the Obama Administration. :dunno:

    I guess when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    Did Chrysler take any of that stimulus handout? Yes....I think they did. Hmmmm
    not a surprise to me if it was a political commercial.

    It's odd....I didn't think politics at all. I thought it was a pro-US business commercial firing us up to build quality and have confidence in ourself as the greatest manufacturing country and that we will survive the current hard times.


    Now...if Carl Rove thinks that's bad, it says more about him than anything else, doesn't it?

    Hollywood puts politics in their movies all of the time.

    Now they're putting it in their ads.

    I'm sick of it.

    Clint sold out to the enemy for huge piles of cash. I'll never go to another Eastwood movie.

    It seems that Pro-American doesn't fit well with turt blossom.
    Unless it is pro 0.01% America.
    Chrysler had a loan, it has paid it back.
    But turd man doesn't quite get that statement.
