Why are the Republicans screaming about Clint Eastwood and Chrysler?
In the dozen or so Super Bowl ads yesterday, several were from automobile manufacturers. So when Chrysler presented Clint Eastwood in a spot called “Halftime in America” which, in very general terms, seemed to highlight President Obama’s Recovery program, Karl Rove and many of the Republican candidates and characters tried to make it a huge “no no.”
After all, if Obama’s recovery activities helped Detroit to start its comeback (especially with the just profitable Chrysler), then the economy isn’t dying as Romney keeps saying.
