Director Of “Friday Night Lights” Says Romney Plagiarized From The Show
Peter Berg wrote to Romney saying he “co-opted a phrase from the show for his campaign.”
Peter is calling “the use of ‘Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose’ an act of stealing.” The phrase was made popular by the critically-acclaimed series and was often seen above the entrance to the locker room.
The show’s phrase, which currently appears on Romney’s Facebook page (see below), has been used in several campaign appearances and speeches.
Here’s told an Iowa rally: “We have clear eyes — we know what we believe. Full hearts — we love this country and we can’t lose. This is a time for Americans to make a choice. We’re going to take back this country.”
