His blunt comments are worth listening to.
“I’m surprised that people that are supposed to be intelligent have interpreted it (the ad) otherwise,” Eastwood saidwhen asked about the backlash from people who thought the ad was endorsing the auto bailouts. He added, “No one was endorsing any bailouts or anything like that. That was all supposition. All somebody daydreaming out there.”
This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time, Eastwood says the Chrysler ad is not about the auto bailouts. And yet, there are many people who don’t buy it.
