Karl Rove Was Offended By Clint Eastwood's Commercial

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueEtc.Politik

Karl Rove clearly doesn't know who he's messing with!

In a stretch to get attention, he's decided that he was offended by Clint Eastwood's Super Bowl commercial, which is being ranked as the best one to be aired this year!

So, what is it exactly that lights a fire under his grasping-at-air-butt?

Here's what he said:

“I was, frankly, offended by it. I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood, I thought it was an extremely well-done ad, but it is a sign of what happens when you have Chicago-style politics, and the president of the United States and his political minions are, in essence, using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising and the best-wishes of the management which is benefited by getting a bunch of our money that they’ll never pay back.”

Ugh. Really?

You really want to take a positive message and say you're offended by it? How did you get into the position you're in again?

If you ask us, we'd be lucky to have Mr. Eastwood give us motivating speeches EVERY day!

It's ridiculous to think this was an Obama re-election ad. Flat-out, and a stretch so big that it's laughable. Did you forget, Karl, about when Bush had that little $17.4 billion bailout of auto companies, including Chrysler, back in 2008? Why no mention of that?

Or maybe you didn't know that Eastwood, who has been referred to as an economical conservative and social liberal (and supported McCain in 2008), said this:

“We shouldn’t be bailing out the banks and car companies. If a CEO can’t figure out how to make his company profitable, then he shouldn’t be the CEO.”

Think before you speak, Rove, especially if all that thinking is dedicated to making stuff up and pointing at things that aren't there.

Did U feel like the add was political, or just an uplifting message (and a little bit about sellin' cars?)??

    To the best of my recollections, the bailouts started in the fall of 2008.
    Pre Obama.

    American employers substantially stepped up their hiring in January, bringing the unemployment rate down for the fifth month in a row.
    Employers added 243,000 jobs in January, the Labor Department reported Friday, marking a pick-up in hiring from December, when the economy added 203,000 jobs.

    Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 8.3%. That is the lowest since February 2009.
    Hiring was much stronger than expected, and once it was apparent the job gains were broad based across several sectors, economists and investors called it a "nice surprise," "fantastic," and even "a touchdown!"

    "This is an optimistic jobs report, especially in light of very poor jobs reports for almost three years," said Brian Hamilton, CEO of Sageworks, a financial information company. "We don't know if the positive jobs trend will continue, but it is definitely a good trend."
    The encouraging news was coupled with revisions to the Labor Department's data, showing the economy added 180,000 more jobs than originally thought in 2011.
    Private businesses have been adding jobs consistently since March 2010. In January, they added 257,000 jobs.

    The manufacturing sector — a focal point of President Obama's latest jobs speeches — added 50,000 jobs in January. Manufacturing has accounted for 14% of the job gains in the last 13 months.

    It is amazing how delusional some people are
    Chrysler is now owned by Fiat, and Italian compant, not an American company
    Most cars are being made in Canada, and in Mexico, do you think the unions are to blame ??
    As for Obama and jobs, just consider the number of people who no longer longer even look for work, they are not counted in the unemployed
    PS
    Gas is now hitting $4.00, when he came into office, it was $1.85

    Mr. pete you might try fact checking first. BTW Clint Eastwood is always a treat.



  5. 5

    Well thank you Mr.President for knowing to follow through on the bail out when you could have stopped it. It takes smarts and control.



  6. 6

    I hated this commercial and I hate Clint Eastwood. Typically Hollywood commie.

    Re: AttFinch – AttFinch, it is a much higher rate in California where I live, above 12% until recently. Dropped a bit but not much. Been laid off for almost two years and unable to find a job (yes, there is age discrimination) and will have to move and live off my late husband's Social Security. Do not even get me started on healthcare!



  8. 8

    Hmm…I highly doubt Mr. Eastwood would do anything to show support for Obama considering he's a hardcore Libertarian. Anyway, I liked the commercial. I was really hoping he would say "now get off my lawn" at the end. :-P

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – clint eastwood is a repulbican and voted for mccain in 2008. he has yet to endorse a candidate for 2012.



  10. 10

    Even Pierce Bronson on CNN said it was an Obama political ad.

    Obama makes me so ill. I can't even stand to hear his slimy voice anymore. Go Away!



  11. 11

    Re: AttFinch – Go away! You never posted on Perez until Obama started to run. Now you come here and spew your liberal crap. Perez followers do not like Obama until suddenly a few libs have showed up. Pay to post trolls out trolling.

    Re: MR Pete
    General Motors Co. has retaken the title of world's top-selling automaker, selling just over 9 million cars and trucks across the globe.

    The company said Thursday that it sold 9.03 million vehicles worldwide last year, up 7.6 percent from 2010. That's more than 1 million better than Japan's Toyota Motor Corp., which took the title away from GM in 2008.. . .
    The majority owners of the new G.M. are the American and Canadian governments, which hold 72.5 percent. A union health care trust called a Voluntary Employee Beneficiary Association, or VEBA, holds 17.5 percent, and 10 percent is held by the old G.M.

    Re: JennyJJJ
    well if pierce bronson said it then it has to be true. LOL!!

    this is what your fellow republican clint eastwood told faux news about the ad.
    *
    “I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama,” Eastwood told Fox News Channel on Monday.
    “It was meant to be a message,” Eastwood told The O’Reilly Factor producer Ron Mitchell, “just about job growth and the spirit of America. I think all politicians will agree with it. I thought the spirit was OK.”

    Damn right it’s halftime in America.
    -
    And we’re down 5 touchdowns and need to make an adjustment in our gameplan ASAP or else we’re gonna get blown out of the stadium.
    -
    We’re getting our asses kicked… we’re way over the cap…
    The Rookie Black President isn’t working out… time to cut everybody and rebuild.
    -
    Rowdy Yates in Rawhide was an independent sort of guy…not a government shill type. Has it all just been an act? Pimps for Clunkers, Gov'mint Motors?

    -
    If it’s half time in America, it’s time to change the quarterback.

    I love how I have to watch a commercial before I can watch a commercial… sigh.

    Re: candkane – Um… Bush started the bailouts… And Obama at least worked on getting DADT repealed, instead of getting it put back into place, like several of the candidates have mentioned doing. If some of those nuts get into office, it's BACK to the unemployment lines for countless soldiers. I'm sure you'll cover your eyes and plug your ears at what I'm saying, and scream "lalalala" like the good soon to be Republican that you are.

    Re: MR Pete

    Gas prices hit a record high in July of 2008, under BUSH, you moron.

    Presidents do not directly affect gas prices. If they did, a gallon of gas would cost $0.32/gallon every election season.

    It takes a giant shovel and many years to clean up the mountains of shit George W. left behind.



  20. 20

    Love Clint Eastwood postive message.

    Peace out.



  21. 21

    Rove is an idiot. He's never gotten laid by anything above a 1, so he takes it out on others.



  22. 22

    The only relevant comment Rove can make would be on the flavor of Donkey Semen on a Fear Factor episode. Somebody needs to put a muzzle on that ugly, fat fuck preferably made of donkey dick.



  23. 23

    GO OBAMA Fuck all you whiney bitches saying he isnt good enough for you he had to clean up Bush's mess I'd like to see any other president do better. Get a life losers because hes going to be your president for another 4 years and you all know it



  24. 24

    I love Clint Eastwood… some people just think to much into things.



  26. 26

    Re: MR Pete – Gas is now hitting $4.00, when he came into office, it was $1.85 .. Where are you living? gas was DEFINITELY not $1.85 when Obama came into office.. gas prices spiked long before Obama was in office. You sound ignorant, gas has not been $1.85 since like 2005.. chill with your false facts.



  27. 27

    Karl "the famous who"?



  28. 28

    OMG, its Obama's fault!!!! Securing the auto industry and stabilizing the banking industry, which saved millions of jobs, extending payroll tax cuts for every working American, restoring the Gulf Oil Spill with BP's money, killing Osama (which bush couldn't do), killing Gaddhafi (which reagan couldn't do), providing affordable health care (which clinton couldn't do), and enacting a stimulus package which is keeping people in their homes, forgiving and reducing student loan debt, and countless other accomplishes. I'm sure every one of you bashers have benefited in one form or another under Obama… if so, shut the hell up, esp u highly ignorant and stupid nazi byytchs JennyJJJ and Mr Pete



  29. 29

    …when karl rove and all the other old kronys die off, then we can start rebuilding……



  30. 30

    wait isn't this clearly an anti-Obama ad?? the whole bit about how it's halftime not only for the show but for America as well…re-election is coming in November and Mr. Eastwood is a conservative and voted for McCain in the last election.
