-- plug today from a controversial.
Super Bowl hat.
Clint Eastwood is defending his appearance in a Chrysler commercial saying there was quote nothing political about it.
The commercial talks about the rebirth of the car industry and some political writers say it comes across like a campaign ad for President Obama here's a little clip.
All of managed -- what's ahead.
I -- we come from behind.
We come together.
To try showings it can be done.
And what's true about.
It's true about all of us.
This country champion -- -- one punch we get right back up again when we do the world's gonna hit the -- of her injuries.
It's time America.
Our second perhaps about to Begin.
A Rich -- is editor of the national review and the Fox News contributor.
He took up this issue in his column today calling it the -- prop again this stick and half baked.
What don't you like about it.
Rich well it's a very evocative that obviously just hear that voice making want to salute in charge into.
Battle he's great at that kind of gravelly voice senses authority.
And only Clint Clint Eastwood can deliver but look this is an added dovetails and that I don't think this is an assailant Clooney's well intended but it dovetails with the a -- administration's.
Message both Chrysler and the administration -- -- -- These bailouts as oh wonderful American success story as we hospital to get -- and right and and that was the other thing.
Is it really echoed.
The theme at the end of president Obama's State of the Union Address really need to put all this argument and discord behind us.
And just unite behind.
-- government policies that include massive bailouts.
Of struggling company.
Do you feel like if there was a suggestion that it you know we if we don't pull together to support things like -- out of the automotive industry.
We're against Clint Eastwood.
Or or again the against Clint Eastwood neighbor a little un American you know that we can't pull pull together and -- -- great patriotic.
And ever look everyone is happy that the auto companies are doing better in -- off life support.
But the US treasury estimates estimates in the US treasury is not a right laying out at the last time I checked that we are losing about.
25 billion dollars.
On these -- these companies they needed to go bankrupt they needed to go through that process and they -- survived coming out.
On the other end without the taxpayer losing money on them and -- -- be even leaner and meaner than they are.
Today certainly GM would have to survived -- just an ordinary bankruptcy process.
Imagine -- and Eastwood in an Alley.
I -- -- I don't know why president.
Yeah when I go anywhere and taken -- currently limited you know be better armed and I I would be you know he he didn't give a written statement -- I don't know -- but but O'Reilly of course does.
And he gave a statement around Mitchell whose rallies producer.
And said I'm certainly not politically affiliated with mr.
Obama this is meant to be a message about job growth in the spirit of America I think -- politicians will agree with that.
As is not supporting any politician at this time.
You take him at data do you think actually his -- whether intend to do two days or not is is helpful to -- yeah I.
I can't get it inside his head and I taken at his word and maybe just he doesn't follow the political and public policy debate.
As closely as some of the rest of us he was this -- this Republican mayor out this out this is objectively a pro bail out.
Act and that's -- -- and Chrysler just tell us how great their cars are.
No one had any objection to that I'm sure Clint Eastwood can make a great sales.
-- -- whatever else that is why they need to tell us how wonderful the bailout is I think it's something they should apologize for in according to US treasury fact we're in for about a billion.
On Chrysler never gonna get back.
That's -- -- that he -- into a couple of the next that they'll come back.
That -- -- sender -- won't forget about that we're sorry.
Dangerous -- during the third Koreans.
