Response to Drunken Irishman (Original post)

18. It was an excellent commercial because you saw it that way. I bet republicans didn't see it that way

Factually, objectively, the auto industry bailout is a success story because of our administration. President Obama's likely opponent is on record saying let it die. The spot ought to be a strong argument to vote for Obama again.

But, the brilliance of the writing of the ad (IMO) is that people who oppose/lean against the President will interpret it the opposite way. It's "halftime in America" now and we've been punched and we're losing. What's it going to take to be "morning in America" again? A viewer's answer to that question (and I do think it was trying to evoke Reagen) is going to depend on how they want to answer it. Facts be damned (the first comment I read on a story about the ad was "Clint Eastwood for President.").
