Clint Eastwood Commercial

February 9, 2012 by staff 

Clint Eastwood Commercial, Clint Eastwood has been busy fending off critics who posit that the Super Bowl commercial he made for Chrysler represents election-year propaganda for President Barack Obama.

The long clip, “Halftime in America,” features the Hollywood star walking around the automobile factory floor and talking about how recoveries like Chrysler’s are a model for the rest of the country. Eastwood later shot back on Fox News that he was “not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama” and that the commercial was “about job growth.”

The trouble with Eastwood’s commercial is not that it looks like one for the Democratic Party. Both parties have bailed out automakers.

In fact, if you squint at them right, Eastwood’s themes in the ad are also Reaganite: the “halftime” theme evokes the 1984 commercial, “Morning in America.” The trouble isn’t even that this commercial makes Eastwood look hypocritical, though it does. As recently as this winter, Eastwood was telling the Los Angeles Times that “we shouldn’t be bailing out the banks and car companies.”
