Clint Eastwood's Chrysler Super Bowl Ad If America Just Quit

Chicago's Second City takes on the Clint Eastwood Super Bowl ad and ponders a world where we'd given up on Chrysler. "It's halftime in America, and playing two halves is asking a lot. So, good game."

Clearly, the original commercial is pro-Detroit/America and not pro-Obama, but that didn't stop the folks at Second City from tacking on an anti-Romney message. The headline at the end, as the Detroit Free Press points out, links to this editorial from Mitt.

DISCUSSION

Just read Romney's article. It's actually a pretty well-reasoned, widely-acceptable stance. It started out sounding like he wanted the Big 3 to die, but by the end it was clear that he wanted them to try to save themselves mostly by themselves... not just by asking for a handout. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but I think the only thing he got wrong in his article is that the Big 3 would ultimately fail. I've been pretty darn impressed with them since the bailout, they've been taking some big risks to get ahead of the competition. Clearly they've learned their lesson, and hopefully it wasn't too little too late.

He makes some good proposals, and regardless of his politics I think most people would find it to be a very good article. I was certainly surprised.
