WANT TO RETHINK THAT ANSWER, CLINT?
So I see that Clint Eastwood starred in the Super Bowl ad of the night, on behalf of Chrysler, the subject being Detroit's comeback:
It's halftime. Both teams are in their locker room discussing what they can do to win this game in the second half.
It's halftime in America, too. People are out of work and they're hurting. And they're all wondering what they're going to do to make a comeback. And we're all scared, because this isn't a game.
The people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Motor City is fighting again....
Yeah, Clint -- and how is it exactly that the people of Detroit didn't lose everything, and managed to pull together and resume fighting? Because I'm thinking of a discussion you had with Katie Couric back in 2010:
Clint Eastwood, legendary actor and director, told Katie Couric that while President Obama is a "nice fella," he's "not a fan of what he's doing at the moment."
During an interview about his latest film "Hereafter," Eastwood told Couric that the president is not "governing" and he's laying out lines in the hopes that people will believe him "so he can stay in his position." ...
Clint? If Obama hadn't been "governing" with regard to Detroit back in '09, you'd have had to be in a freaking Toyota commercial tonight. So I hope you've rethought that answer.
