Connie Britton slams Mitt Romney for using FNL catch phrase
Actress Connie Britton ripped GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney for using the catchphrase of NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” which goes “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!”
According to reports, 45-year-old Connie Britton — who now anchors “Nashville” — took issue with Mitt Romney’s ganking of the catch phrase.
Referencing the show’s town of Dillon, Texas, Britton penned an op-ed in this weekend’s USA Today that reads:
“Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives… In fact, it is President Obama who has shown his values to be more closely aligned with those represented by the phrase.”
Written along with Friday Night Lights Producer Sarah Aubrey, Connie Britton adds:
“President Obama’s landmark Affordable Care Act has been transformative for women. For the first time in our lives, being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition — our insurers can’t charge us more for having breast cancer or being the victim of domestic violence.”
“This law fully covers the cost of our preventive care, our annual check-ups, our birth control. And on Friday Night Lights, quarterback Matt Saracen’s grandma would have then been able to get the affordable health care she needed.”
“Let’s use our clear eyes and full hearts to vote early. Let’s use our clear eyes and full hearts to tell every friend, family member and neighbor about what’s at stake for women in this election. What’s at stake for all of us,” Connie Britton concluded.
