Remember how he was such a punchline after the GOP Convention? Well, since then President Empty Chair has faded badly in the polls while Mitt Romney has surged. Sure, things really turned after Romney demolished Obama in the Denver debate three weeks ago, but Clint Eastwood’s bit really did resonate.
Now he’s back for more.
“Through the last few years, America’s been knocked down. 23 million people can’t find full-time work, and we borrow $4 billion every single day, much of it from China,” says the famed actor and director in the ad.
“When someone doesn’t get the job done, you have to hold them accountable. Obama’s second term would be a rerun of the first and our country just couldn’t survive that,” Eastwood continues. “We need someone who can turn it around fast and that man is Mitt Romney. There’s not much time left and the future of our country is at stake.”
Reports said the ad would run in seven key battleground states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia.
