If Clint Eastwood's make-believe interview with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention didn't make it clear enough that he is pro-Romney, this new anti-Obama ad sure does.
Aimed at swing states, the ad, which was filmed for superPAC American Crossroads on behalf of Romney at Eastwood's home, features Eastwood lamenting that America has been "knocked down" the last few years. Eastwood's voiceover, set to washed out footage of factories, average Americans, a downtrodden-appearing Obama, and an impassioned Romney, broadcasts, "Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn't survive that."
The dramatic kicker, delivered by Eastwood speaking straight to the camera, packs a punch. ""There's not much time left and the future of our country is at stake,"" Eastwood says.
Like most campaign ads airing this close to the election, the commercial focuses on evoking an emotional response rather than relaying information regarding the candidates' platforms that could actually help inform voters.
