Lars Larson: Sorry Clint, that’s not halftime in America

by Lars Larson

Why is one of my favorite conservatives from Hollywood apparently fronting for the President of the United States in a multi-billion dollar bailout?

It’s halftime in America“, that’s the name of the commercial that Clint Eastwood was fronting for. It ran during the Super Bowl. I didn’t actually see it live – I had to go back and take a look at it after the fact.

It’s based on the idea the Chrysler and General Motors are both bailed out by the United States government, and it features one of my favorite conservatives, Clint Eastwood.

It almost sounds like he’s fronting for President Obama. Obama’s name is never mentioned but all the political discord is. When the auto companies nearly were lost in Detroit, that we all pulled together? No, a bunch of politicians wrote checks based on OUR taxes, and handed them off to save the bacon of a bunch of worker unions in Detroit.

The U.S. taxpayers lost billions on the deal, and now Chrysler and the unions are making billions after that.

That’s not exactly halftime in America as far as I’m concerned.
