Clint Eastwood Supports Super Bowl Ad, Political Independence

by at . Comments

Clint Eastwood wants to make one thing clear: when he filmed a Super Bowl commercial on behalf of Chrysler, he had no intention on making the Democrats' day.

Nor any political party's, for that matter, as the iconic actor spoke to The O'Reilly Factor Producer Ron Mitchell last night and shot down talk - started by Karl Rove and a few other Republicans - that he starred in an ad Sunday night with the implicit aim of supporting President Barack Obama and the auto industry bailout.

"I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama," Eastwood told Fox News. "It was meant to be a message about just about job growth and the spirit of America. I think all politicians will agree with it. I thought the spirit was okay.

"I am not supporting any politician at this time... Chrysler to their credit didn’t even have cars in the ad... Anything they gave me for it went for charity... If any Obama or any other politician wants to run with the spirit of that ad, go for it."

While Rove said he was "offended" by the commercial and accused Obama’s “political minions” of "using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising," White House spokesman Jay Carney has insisted there was no involvement by the administration.
