Against it before he was for it?:

No one is going to put words in Clint Eastwood’s mouth. The man is independent, tough, and has earned the right to speak for himself on issues like the bailout. So, here’s what he told the Los Angeles Times just three months ago:

"We shouldn’t be bailing out the banks and car companies. If a CEO can’t figure out how to make his company profitable, then he shouldn’t be the CEO."

Now flash forward to yesterday’s Super Bowl ad when he said this:

"The people of Detroit know a little something about this. They almost lost everything. But we all pulled together, now Motor City is fighting again."
