If you missed it, Clint Eastwood made an ad for Chrysler for the Super Bowl that some are interpreting to be pro-Obama.
I thought it was outright offensive. Clint Eastwood’s still cool though.
BLEAH!! A big hoo-rah for Government Motors and a blatant ad for Obama.
Clint, why did you do this?
“Clint did this why?”
He did it for the money of course. Good for him.
Go to hell Clint. Take Obama with you.
Considering empires last about 500 years on average, maybe they were saying we’ve peaked and are on the down hill side...half way to the ash heap of history?
It was revolting.
If he was trying to convince us that Chrysler actually gives a damn about America, he failed. Everybody knows the folks running Chrysler care only about their bank accounts. The only time they care about America is if they can get a bail out or tax breaks.
Just bought a new nickel-plated .44 Magnum. Wanna play Clint! I can count too! Nice wrinkles. Wimpy voice. Go play golf!
He’s an actor. He got paid. Clint could make buying dog poop pro-American.
Its Chrysler. They suck. Their cars suck. The company is owned by commie unions. Commie unions suck.
Don’t buy GM. Don’t buy Chrysler. Buy Ford. Ford is still an American company.
I usta buy only Chevy, my wife only Chrysler. I still have a 01 Sebring convertable in the drive way. We are buying a Ford Edge next.
Gee Clint ,That ad sure gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. Don't worry or ask about why people are hurting,just look ahead and buy a Chrysler! This ad was a "give Obama a another four years and we will all be better off" load of crap. Sorry Clint, you did not make my day.
Who are we gonna believe, Clinty.....YOU or our lyin eyes and ears?? PLEASE......you are an IDIOT for making this ad.
Absolutely was a political ad, probably written by the Obama people.
He made a whore of himself.
Makes me wonder: Now that wealth has been vilified, only whores have wealth!
"Ya know, maybe I’m alone in the world but I just don’t see what others see. I thought it was just a Chrysler Ad."
Same here. The ultra right hating American Automaker types here will twist anything into a liberal "plot" of some sort.
Had it been a Ford ad, then it would have been brilliant—certainly one of the best superbowl ads ever.
But, as a Chrysler ad, all it did was open old wounds in middle class America. Nobody bailed us out, and now he’s this ad talking about how—after we bailed them out—Detroit is the model and symbol of hope for America.
My emotional response to the ad was F*** You, kiss my a**, and go to H***.
Chrysler spends $7 million on this commercial and not even a Thank You to the American Taxpayer for bailing them out.
That $7M could have made a payment on the $1.3B that Chrysler US that we will never see.
Any respect I had for Clint I lost. OK I really don't think I had any. He is as phony as the characters he plays.
I saw this ad as a justification of bale outs and a plea to re-elect BHO or we are domed.
It made me want to vomit, even my “liberal” husband thought it was a bit over the top.
I will never, ever, ever buy a Chrysler or GM product again.
Pretty obviously a promo for BO and the Democrat unions and a far cry from Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America.”
The Reagan ads are still memorable. The haunting “Bear in the Woods” ad was a masterpiece.
"Just as it was sure nice for NBC to offer Barack a campaign spot."
I don't remember but - was President Bush ever offered the chance to appear in the same kind of interview before the game? The other thing that struck me was that he was given the questions in advance as his answers were too crisp when compared to the stuttering, broken answers that he usually gives.
Since the whole damn thing was filmed in Los Angeles and New Orleans, I’m not sure what the fool was trying to say in that so-called commercial. In the room full of people I was in yesterday, no one, not even one, had any idea what the lefty was saying or talking about.
In any case, the whole “commercial” was extremely depressing and dark, just like Eastwood’s favorite White House resident.
It is unfortunate for the language and communications that the term "liberal" has been co-opted and poisoned by The Left, just as the term "gay" has been co-opted and poisoned by homosexuals.
Suggestion: Look up the definition of "classical liberal". It is "libertarian". Not "leftist". I.e. let people alone to think for themselves.
While I don't presume to speak for Mr. Eastwood, I would bet that he meant "easy-going, tolerant" when he said "liberal". Not "Leftist".
“Since we’ll never get an estimated $23 billion back, we all must be “pulling together” behind Detroit still.”
Exactly. Next time I hear a Lib say that Chrysler paid it all back I'm going to point out the fact that the taxpayer's and creditors got stiffed for billions.
It's a real condemnation of the Republican party when the best you can say about the Republican establishment's choice is that he isn't 0bama, or at least not quite. And when the best you can say about the main rival (Neut) is that he isn't quite as bad as Romney. And, the best thing you can say about the most conservative of the remaining field (Paul) is that he's only slightly crazy. And, the best thing you can say about who's left (Santorum) is that he's slightly more conservative than (Neut).
Although I'll vote for any of them rather than that braying pompous arrogant ignoranus, 0bama

As if Ford is some sort of non-union shop.
Is it even possible for the freepers to get crazier than they already are now?ReplyDelete
OK that "depressing and dark, just like the president" was pretty funny although not so much so when you consider that it wasn't meant to be tongue-in-cheek.ReplyDelete
Maybe they would fare better with Freepers if they changed their name to CHRIST-ler?ReplyDelete

That arugula and fried chicken eating, homosexual adulterer, muslim atheist, communist fascist, smooth talking telemprompter-reading, stutterer OTUS.
No cognitive dissonance too strong.
At least it was a correct talking up until june 2008 that BO hadn't released his birth certifict. For all of about a year, that was a correct position, just a retarded one. But, from day 1, there has been overwhelming evidence that the president can speak in public. Do they just project Palin's voice from the Couric interview on him whenever he talks?
