Clint Eastwood cuts new ad for Romney

By AP Staff

WASHINGTON (AP) - Clint Eastwood is starring in a new ad to support Republican Mitt Romney's election to the White House.

The "Dirty Harry" actor criticizes President Barack Obama's economic record over video of a shuttered factory and an unemployment line. Eastwood says a second term would be a, quote, "rerun of the first and our country just couldn't survive that."

The ad closes with a close-up of the Academy Award-winner facing the camera and arguing that the country needs Romney to turn things around.

The independent Republican group American Crossroads unveiled the ad Wednesday. It is part of a $12.6 million, three-ad buy in seven swing states - Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia.

Eastwood spoke at the Republican National Convention, berating an empty chair meant to represent Obama.

    Way to go, Clint: “Hang ‘em high” and “Do you feel lucky, punk?” Looking forward to another good Romney promotion!

      The MOST memorable event of this election will be Josey Wales Eastwood, talking to that EMPTY CHAIR, and then saying that the politicians work for us, that this is OUR country we OWN it, and if it they fail… you have to let them go.

      Eastwood has taken on Hell itself for doing what he is doing. He is at a stage in life where he can go out swinging. An American Iconic Hero!

    I’ve always liked Clint. I just never knew how much. There was a cartoon this past week that I saw that had an empty chair and a baby’s high chair with a bottle and pacifier on the tray. The label was something like, the BO’s chair and Bite-me’s high chair. I thought it was hilarious! Wish I would have kept it.
