Perry's adrenaline-packed new ad
Politico ^ | September 21, 2011 | JAMES HOHMANN

Posted on 09/21/2011 3:56:47 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

“PROVEN LEADERSHIP” – PERRY’S NEW AD: Rick Perry’s campaign is launching an epic new bio spot today. The first 40 seconds attack “PRESIDENT ZERO,” juxtaposing eerie images of national stagnation with footage of Barack Obama taking responsibility for the economy. A tornado siren playing over the president’s voice creates a palpable sense of alarm. The last minute of the web ad introduces Perry as a job creator and veteran who believes America’s best days are ahead, rotating sunny images of the country at its best with footage from the Texas governor’s announcement speech. Lucas Baiano, who produced the spot, has signed on with Perry after working for Tim Pawlenty. Watch it: HERE.

This guy made some good ads for Pawlenty - which is like making bricks without straw — and this is a very good one for Perry. Now, can Perry live up to it?

He’s never lost a political race. Maybe he should have made his ad 90 minutes long and titled it “Undefeated and Never Quit”.

‘adrenaline-packed’?

Every Politco article and many MSM articles use the headline and articles to try to paint this machismo Texan image. Like every other leading Republican, they are in a 24/7 effort to shape public opinion of Perry in a way they feel will hurt him with voters. So ridiculous.

Strangely, they don’t do this with Romney or Huntsman. The libs ‘fav’ Republicans.

SUPER ad! Love how it segues from "Zero" to Rick Perry!

Turn out the lights, Republican aspirants, for we have our candidate: Rick Perry of the great state of Texas!

...to any undeclared hopefuls: stay in Wasilla. America isn't ready for a male First Lady, no matter how high-pitched his voice.

Wow. The back-to-back visual of the disgusting, deceitful, and whiny Obama and the powerfully optimistic Perry couldn't draw a sharper contrast.

If he were really smart, Obama would just throw in the towel.

To 6 - Are Palin, Limbaugh, Levinu; Inhofe lying when they attest to Perry’s conservative bona fides? Yes or no. Because it can’t be both ways. If Perry is a “RINO” then you, and anyone else, are as good as stating that the aforementioned quartet are liars.

This is a good, strong ad that makes a solid point. I like Perry taking a page from Reagan’s playbook, not only hitting his opponent but also talking about the greatness of America. That resonates with people who still love this country and what she stands for.

Your point is valid, but here’s what I take from the misguided post...

An ad maker who worked with Pawlenty is an ad maker, he isn’t a RINO or an arch conservative or whatever...he makes ads for money. That’s how he makes his living. If he’s good, as appears to be true, it’s to Perry’s credit for hiring him.

Does the ad present Perry in RINO imagery? Absolutely not.

Therefore, the complaint is a crock.

Let them go ahead and use the RINO label over and over and over again — pretty soon the term will be rendered useless. Actually, I think it already is.

The Rick Perry I Know (Perry keeps his boot on his opponent's neck..)

....."He is an extremely astute politician with a keen sense of where voters are, and he has great instincts on message. Perry has ruthless discipline and communication. They say in politics, “Don’t let your boot off an opponent’s neck till Election Day.” Perry doesn’t take his boot off till a year after the votes have been counted and the opponent has faded into oblivion.".....

Agreed. It's been used so much that it's meaning as been watered down to nothing. Now it means, "If I don't like you on a single issue or you're running against my FAVORITE candidate, you're a RINO".

Yet Perry opposed Reagan absolutely, never voting for him for President. A flipflopping phony opportunist.

Yet Perry Reagan opposed supported Reagan FDR absolutely, never voting for him for President. A flipflopping phony opportunist conservative hero.

Ancient history, Reagan was elected 31 and 27 years ago. A little bit of time has passed and a massive change in party identification in Texas and southern states.

Yet another demonstration of the dishonesty of the Perrybots.

Let’s entertain your fantasy for a moment that a liberal Democrat like Perry was in the 1980s would vote for Reagan... well, that would mean he not only lied to his constituency, but was a traitor to his own party. If he can lie to his constituents as an elected Democrat about whom and what he supports, it is just as easy to do so as a Republican.

It’s that basic dishonesty thing that Perry and his supporters have. It was the #1 reason I opposed Slick Willard and one of the top two reasons I oppose him (along with his stance on open borders).

We get it, you are a stalking horse for Romney. Take out Perry, you get Romney, a coin-flip gets you him or Obama. Keep either one of those you keep ObamaCare and an Establishment Ruling Class Elite.

May your chains rest lightly on you. Clearly that is your heart's desire.

(You probably can't even define "RINO" beyond simple platitudes)

You are right. I have some reservations about Perry - but he’s no RINO. A RINO originally was someone who benefits by trashing conservatives - someone whose career is based on getting love from the media and other liberals by being a pariah in the Republican Party. Think McCain, Graham, Snowe, Collins, etc.

Now true, this goes hand in hand with being liberal on policy, but the meaning of it used to be more of a mindset of trashing other Republicans, thus it was RINO and not CINO (conservative in name only).
