Clint Eastwood Eschews Chair, Supports Mitt Romney in New Ad

by at . Comments

Clint Eastwood doesn't need an empty chair to make his point about Barack Obama in a new commercial.

Playing off his controversial Chrysler Super Bowl ad, the actor once again says America is at a crossroads, but this time he makes his political allegiance very clear.

"When someone doesn't get the job done, you got to hold 'em accountable," Eastwood says in the video above. "Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn't survive that."

Asked about the spot, the Oscar winner - who came under serious fire for his Invisible Obama speech at the Republican National Convention - said in a statement:

"I did the ad because I'm concerned for our country. I really believe Mitt Romney is the kind of leader we need right now. He's an experienced businessman, and he knows how to work with people to fix problems. It's time to give someone else a chance to fix our country."

Morgan Freeman, the owner of another famous voice and Eastwood's costar in Million Dollar Baby, is behind a commercial that supports Obama.

The showdown is officially on.
