The American Crossroads super PAC released a new anti-Obama campaign ad today starring Clint Eastwood. With no empty chair to support his argument, the actor abandons improvisation for a more conventional attack approach.
Eastwood narrates over shots of factories and Americans standing in unemployment lines, saying “23 million can’t find full-time work and we borrow $4 billion every single day.” He argues that President Barack Obama should be held “accountable” for not getting the job done and Mitt Romney should be elected in his place to “turn [the country] around fast.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, the commercial is part of a $12.6 million ad campaign backed by Karl Rove’s political action committee that will run in the swing states of Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, Florida, New Hampshire, Nevada, and Virginia.
Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby costar Morgan Freeman recently narrated a campaign commercial with the opposite sentiment on behalf of Obama. Forget the presidential contenders, it’s a battle of the two most recognizable voices in Hollywood.
