“Friday Night Lights” Producer Doesn’t Like Romney Using Show’s Slogan
Connie Britton, who starred in the show (pictured), and executive producer Sarah Aubrey have penned an op-ed explaining why they object to Romney’s use of the term, “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.”
…it has been surprising that the phrase has been usurped and co-opted by Mitt Romney and his campaign for their gain. And it got us thinking: What would the women of Dillon think about this?
Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show — the women we are in real life — are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions. Women who want to earn equal pay for the work we do. Women who want affordable health care.
In fact, it is President Obama who has shown his values to be more closely aligned with those represented by the phrase.
