'Halftime in America' ad creates political debate

Feb 6, 2012 Full story: Bellingham Herald 117

But Chrysler's "Halftime in America" ad featuring quintessential tough guy Clint Eastwood has generated fierce debate about whether it accurately portrays the country's most economically distressed city or amounts to a campaign ad for President Barack Obama and the auto bailouts.

Any good news for America, is bad news for the rightwing nuts.

They would have preferred and ad saying "Hello America, we failed, America failed, but President Obama loves it!"

Instead the ad says "Hello America, we succeeded as, America succeeded...who's not happy about this"

ANSWER IS?

Karl Rove, Mitt Romney, and every other rightwinger who puts party over Country.

Leave it the political hacks to try and spin this ad so that the real meaning gets lost. . This ad with Clint Eastwood is one that very simply talks about the American Spiriy and that is all. We have never backed down from a challenge and comming back from this crisis should be an example of this. I will have nothing to do with politicians, who refuse to work together, or the 1%'s who only care about money. Clint Eastwood, in this commercial, talks about th pride, work ethic and determinatio of the average working class American and how we will be the ones who pull us out of the bad times we are facing now.

in reality, Mr. Eastwood is a registered republican that leans towards libertarianism.
fiscally conservative & socially liberal.

(aw shucks, he doesn't fit a stereotype!!! what will we do?!?!?)

Well that sure is the positive spin on that ad.

We have an old man with one foot in the grave and a smoker's hack voice putting on airs of some sort of essentialist, American virility.

If he's our future then watch out for the dead end. The ad can best be read as unintentional parody.

When the hell will Chrysler make a car that can go past 120,000 miles???? Crimony, my retired aunt who doesn't know any better than to buy a EFFING Chrysler product has gone through 3 of since retiring... She keeps em in a garage and they are still just completely dogged out at 120,000. I aunt fixing them for her, I live four states away.

My friends Honda accord has 485,000 miles on it. I keep telling my aunt.... Chrysler is lucky to have incoherent customer base that doesn't pay attention to the complete obvious. Bastards can't go out of business fast enough for all I care.....

I don't need big brother to tell me Chrysler is suckin the hind tit. If you read my post you'd see that I already know that. I don't give a damn if they're made in Mordor, err Michigan. That's the only reason people like my aunt buy them though, and those people will dry up sooner or later and if Chrysler don't have a effin communist willing to bail their asses out, then finally... Good riddance jackasses!!!

Detroit probably is our most economically
distressed city due to gov't bailouts over
the years. The unions take, take, take and they
continue to lose jobs when the pot is empty.
They don't care, since they can always depend
on Uncle Sam. But they have a contract.
