Eastwood Chrysler Super Bowl ad controversy

Super Bowl XLVI saw a roll out of the prerequisite ads we all love to watch and critique. This Sunday was no different and after the excitement over the New York Giants win or the deep disappointment of New England Patriots loss subsided, the ad controversy began.

The one in the spotlight this year is Chrysler's Clint Eastwood ad about Detroit. Some are calling "Dirty Harry's" monologue pro-Obama and political. In the ad, Eastwood walks the dark streets of the "Car City" and muses philosophical about Americas plight and hope for a comeback if we all pull together.

"It's Halftime in America" he rasps in that sexy deadpan voice we loved to hear when he told the bad guys who was boss in his many Western movies.

So why is it controversial to encourage us to come together to make this country future better, brighter? Critics say it is an endorsement of Obama and his policies, namely the bail-out of the auto industry.
