    No need to root for them to fail, they already did.

    Nope, you try again

    McCann - Erickson USA has handled all Chrysler advertising for over a dozen years.

    The Clint Eastwood SB ad was produced by an outside political advertising firm!

    It was the UAW's way of supporting Obama in the upcoming election. I think Eastwood was duped into doing the ad because of his big hit "Grand Torino". With all the fallout since it aired, I'm sure Eastwood wouldn't touch this assignment with a 10 foot poll with hindsight!

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    I thought this thread was about Chrysler which is an Italian auto not a US auto.
    I guess if you consider Toyota and Honda US automobiles then you could include Chrysler.

    I'm sorry your hero did something positive and you don't like it. I'm sure he would do it again....because he is a smart man, and the likes of Jim Beck don't pull his strings

    Correct, and before it became an Italian Company it was a German Company (Damlier-Benz).

    P S

    Part of the deal when Fiat purchased the company out of bankruptcy was that USA tax payers would payoff 1.3 billion of the former companies bad debt!

    Had our government not interfered and let this situtaion run its true course, Chrysler along with Dodge and Jeep would be well on it way to recovery. Understand that big government can't stand it when companies do well without thier help!

    Yup, Beck is an idiot but, had Eastwood realized the politics behind what was going on, he wouldn't have agreed to do this project!

    Remember, Eastwood is by his own admission a Libertarian and they hate big intrusive Democrat style government.

    I bet at this point in his live, Eastwood is really worried about what people think of him.

    He must be getting senile and can no longer figure anything out for himself.

    Because Damlier-Benz did two things for the Chrysler brands that haddened been done before. The brought up to date styling and better engineering to all Chrysler brands. They just couldn't deal with the UAW anymore. As they said when they divested of Chrysler that the quality of workers in Germany compared to Detroit were oceans apart!

    Nope, I think he was duped. Probably approached along the lines of; you stared and produced this wonderful movie, "Grand Tarino" and we want to take it a step further........

    All the while the political ad agency knew exactly what they were doing.
