From The Corner at National Review:
Karl Rove had especially harsh words for Chrysler’s “Halftime” advertisement starring Clint Eastwood. Conceding that “it was an extremely well-done ad,” Rove nevertheless tied it to Obama administration strong-arm tactics. “It is a sign of what happens when you have Chicago-style politics, and the President of the United States and his political minions are, in essence, using our tax dollars to buy corporate advertising,” Rove said. He added that Chrysler executives must have felt it necessary “repay their political patrons.”
Because Chrysler isn’t interested in selling cars.
UPDATE: I meant to add that this may have been Rove’s ‘jump the shark’ moment. If not, it sure should be.
