The Clint Eastwood ad during the Super Bowl is causing quite a stir on the Internet. I think the ad is a terrific bit of marketing and I see it as being above the political tribalism that’s all too prevalent in America these days. It is not a political message; it is an example of American exceptionalism and a great bit of marketing.
Did the ad contain political overtones? They were their for those who wanted to find them. I prefer to believe they were coincidental to Chrysler’s message. But what if “Halftime in America” is a rallying call for a second term for President Barack Obama? He earned it when he went ahead with a bailout of Chrysler and General Motors while many of us conservatives objected.
Why not try pulling together; the hyper-partisan stuff isn’t working out so well.
Here’s a link to the ad.
