    Clint Eastwood - Half Time In America

    This isn't about guns, or shooting, but I just had to post this because of the way it was done. It's an automobile ad fir certain, but it's our old friend Clint Eastwood. Here's what he had top say about this very controversial ad during half time at the 2012 Super Bowl.

    Premiering during the Super Bowl 2012, this advertisement was criticized by several leading US conservatives, who claimed it implied that President Barack Obama deserved a second term. In response to the criticism, Eastwood stated "I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama. It was meant to be a message about job growth and the spirit of America."


    .......... and here's the link to the video ad.

    ps
    It seems that no matter what Clint Eastwood does, it always has "class".

    One of the few commercials in life worth watching.

    Favorite line from the commercial:

    "That what we do, we find a way through tough times. If we cant find one, we make one."

    That right there is classic Eastwood.

    Wow!!! Thanks rhmc24, I've never seen that video before but I did hear about it not too long ago. Thanks for providing the link to it.

    I watched the entire piece, a little laggy in places, but the message was, well, OUTSTANDING!! No question, and I think that it's definitely going to hurt a little in the right places.

    An excellent video, thank you.

    That was an awesome speech!

    All the liberals could do was criticize him for his age... how pathetic of them.

    I saw the piece when it was aired. Very impressive. I have to wonder which side of the fence he's really on. BO brought the auto industry back, no question about that. Gm, the largest at the time, was dead and close to buried. At the time it was unpopular, 65% of the public opposed it, and many conservatives, including MR blasted it. I heard today that the GOP has stopped spending any money in Wisconsin and Ohio, both very dependent on the auto industry. I think they have read the writting on the wall. They can't afford to loose Ohio. This could sink the GOP.

    Before you shoot me let it be known that I'm an independent voter and I drive a Chev.

    "Clint Eastwood as"Director of Homeland Security"......"Go ahead....PUNK......MAKE MY DAYYYYYY"

    Nothing new here. Back in the 90's it was ......"Quadaffi, make my day".
