If Eastwood is, indeed, the "mystery man" tonight, there will be no mystery in his remarks. They will be riddled with further hypocrisy and deceit. That you can count on. "A good man," declares Dirty Harry in Magnum Force, "always knows his limitations." Apparently, his creator does not.

It's hard to knock Chrysler's ongoing effort to boost the image of Detroit, and to link its own resurgence with the struggling comeback of the city. But I'm going to.

Romney might be able to sell his nursery rhyme of creeping socialism elsewhere, but in Michigan, majorities of voters support the auto bailout and like Clint Eastwood's Chrysler ad.

If Americans care about where their products are made, companies will care. Therefore, even as the president promoted tax credits for insourcing -- the new word for bringing those jobs back -- perhaps another step would be to build on the power of choice.

"Half-Time in America" Highlights Our Political Dysfunctionality

For the sake of both current and future generations, let us hope that Clint Eastwood's "Half Time in America" commercial will be remembered for more than just igniting yet another round of political bickering and finger pointing.

The GOP Problem: 'It's Halftime in America'

Republicans are angry about the "It's Halftime in America" ad because it flies in the face of their negative themes: Obama has failed; America has gone in the toilet; and the only way to dig ourselves out of this hole is to place our faith in corporate America.

Eastwood's spoken lines tee up, like it or not, an inevitable political discussion that will take place this month in advance of the Michigan GOP primary and into the fall, especially if Michigan native Mitt Romney goes on to face off against President Obama in the general election.

What kind of America do those who advocate debt forgiveness envision? Unless you believe that Gingrich's moon colonies will vastly increase supply in the coming years, you must believe that our collective future is rather bleak.

It's been a bad week for the "Obama's-a-failed-anti-American-socialist" story. A stunningly good jobs report left the Rove-ites groping for a message. And as Mitt bumbles his way to becoming the nominee of the 1%ers, the Eastwood ad was the last straw.

The World Through Rove-Colored Glasses

Why did the Chrysler Super Bowl ad so affect Karl Rove that he felt he must speak out against it? The answer to this question reveals more about Rove and the Republican party than it does about Chrysler or its two minutes of heart-warming, pro-industry salesmanship.

Clint Eastwood's appearance and words during the Super Bowl had little to do with Obama. For observers with a long political memory, it was hard not to think of another president when seeing that commercial.

We see a brief glimpse of Detroit's city flag and the Latin motto on it. In English, it means "We hope for better things; it shall rise from the ashes." It is as relevant today as when it was written more than two centuries ago.

Here's the problem with Romney: even Republicans don't want to vote for Romney. Many conservatives hate Obama based on conjecture or manufactured misinformation or basic policy difference. But they know why they dislike Romney.
