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.

His stance on immigration is a dealbraker for me.

Can you even accurately articulate his position on immigration - or all you know is opposition talking-points and bad vibes?

Hey, n00b, I suggest you go take a look at my posts from 2006 to today to see how much of a “stalking horse” I am for that scummy, Sociopathic Socialist Slick Willard. Making absurd accusations like yours are going to get you laughed right off this website.

Let’s entertain your fantasy for a moment that a liberal Democrat like Perry was in the 1980s

The fantasy is yours. I was a Texas Democrat in the 1980's, and most, especially those of urban roots, weren't liberals.

Ooh, I even voted for John Sharp for Comptroller, and thought he did a good job. I participated in the Texas Tomorrow Fund, too. oooohhh.

Very well done — and very hard hitting.

I feel they should play up even more the misery this presiden’ts policies have wrought ...esp w/ black americans. They should highlight the long unemployment lines ...the running for welfare checks and other scenes.

They need to him him so hard he screams.

And then finish w/ the glory of America as it was, and as it could and should be ...a united America, mostly.

Hit this bozo harder if you ask me.

First some studies. Some studies suggest that illegal immigrants annually cost the federal government $100 billion dollars. Illegal immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America have an average educational level of about the eighth grade and many studies confirm people with such low levels of education are on average a net loss to our economy. Maybe 50% of illegal immigrants work in the underground meaning the pay no taxes or payroll taxes. The monies earned in the US and sent home are a further drain on our economy. There are other costs brought about by uninsured drivers and by non English speaking immigrants.

There are many other problems associated with illegal immigrants. The problems are so numerous and far reaching that another Opeation Wetback is needed. Perry's actions on tuition for illegal immigrants and some of his statements on these matters provide little hope that if elected Perry would not follow through with meaningful steps to correct these problems.

Speaking of announcement speeches, Texas governor says 'No' to presidential run . If he doesn't keep his word in the past how are we to believe he will in the future?

Lol Watch out for endless prating about tuition breaks for illegals and no border fence along 1200 miles of mostly private land.

There are no tuition breaks for illegals. It’s a case of, if you attend a TX high school for three years and if you graduate and want to attend college, you will be charged in state tuition, you will not be investigated as a possible illegal because you have an hispanic last name.

In Texas we have millions of Hispanics whose families have been here for generations. They don’t even know when anybody came from somewhere else to Texas, their family here goes back so far into the dim mists of record or memory. They join the military in droves and have died in all of our wars. They are dying today in Afghanistan. But no, they won’t trigger an automatic investigation into them if they try to enroll in college after high school. Perish the thought, how terrible of RINO Texas. This law passed both Texas legislative bodies with almost zero opposition.

But that is what you will get, along with feigned horror that we aren’t trying to get land from its rightful owners over a one thousand two hundred mile border to build a continuous fence.

Are you some sort of a nut, Bert ? Nobody on this website opposed the candidacy of that scumbag Slick Willard more than I, and you can go look it up. You present the same false set of choices that you’ve concocted either in your own mind or more likely from the Perrybot talking points schtick. BOTH of them are offensive and non-starters. Just because you’re willing to settle for one open-borders RINO and liar over another doesn’t mean the rest of us are. Go sell that Kool-Aid somewhere else.

Come on now, you can do better than that. If we disqualified everyone who said they weren’t running for President when they run for President, we’d NEVER have a President.

I suspect that 100% of the folks who have ever run for President have said they are NOT running for President within months of their running for President. (excluding fringe perpetual candidates like Nader and so on...)

To 6 - Are Palin, Limbaugh, Levinu; Inhofe lying when they attest to Perry’s conservative bona fides?

Some people have a negative personality, sometimes called a "Masochistic Personality Disorder", where defeat and loss is the only goal so they, often without reason, will tear down anything and everything no matter if it is good, bad or benign. Markers include this habit of aggressive provocative conduct - in this case, constantly sniping and deliberately antagonizing.

If you understand the symptoms and the underlying cause, then you can decide whether to ignore or enable continued antisocial behavior from them.

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

To me, this entire ad was copying Ronald Reagan--almost word for word in some phrases.

I remember Ronald Reagan. Rick Perry is no Ronald Reagan.

If Perry gets the nomination, he will get my vote (anybody but obammy)--but he's certainly not my first choice.

That probably is not the best argument for Rick Perry. He ran his last governors election based upon the premise he would not run for president and would finish his term as governor.

Yeah you've done the "Mr. Behar" thing before. I think for posterity I'll quote again from your cowardice:

From #28 to fieldmarshaldj:

"jla makes a good point. Either Rick Perry is a conservative or Sarah Palin is a liar. Which is it?"

From #34 fieldmarshaldj's cowardly and nonsensical answer:

"No and No"

I swear, if that were not so pathetic and cowardly a response it would truly be funny.

Perrybot Talking Point Numero Uno !

I understand your affliction. Your posts you have been churning out are a desperate cry for help. Instead of lashing out, you should reach out and get some counseling for this self-destructive behavior.

how much of a “stalking horse” I am for that scummy, Sociopathic Socialist Slick Willard

Which is a sign of cognitive dissonance (or just plain stupidity) where you claim to be against a certain person such as Romney, but your actions only go to support and help him - in this case, vicious personal attacks against those who support a better candidate, and constantly lying and chanting simplistic bromides that often bear no relation to the intended target.

You are doing a fine job of alienating others and isolating yourself from a well adjusted community of good people. I would like to help you break that self-destructive pattern and be a force for good. Although MPD is believed to be congenital, accepting it is the first step towards a cure.

(Also, I notice you declined the invitation to accurately define "RINO" which helps to confirm the diagnosis.)

AM, there is no factual evidence that Perry ever voted for Reagan. He was an elected Democrat in the 1980s, he did not switch parties until 1990, he was Al Gore's Texas campaign manager in 1988. To claim that an elected Democrat, as some Perrybots are boasting, somehow voted Republican is the height of absurdity and defies logic and reason. If he, as a Democrat, somehow voted for Reagan, why would he turn around and then tout a Socialist liberal for the Presidency running in full-blown opposition to the Reagan agenda ? I have already stated this repeatedly, so why would that particular post now be worthy of removal ?

Since you were trying to shift the argument in your response to me, I will repeat: Texas Democrats, especially those of urban roots were not liberals. I grew up in TX. As has been posted here many times by other former TX democrats, most were more conservative, especially on social issues than "moderate" Republicans are now.

I don't know why you post things that can't be shown to be factual.

That group has very few members (if any) who are in the country illegally.

-- This law passed both Texas legislative bodies with almost zero opposition. --

I fully support assigning blame to the legislatures, when the item in question was passed into law by a legislature. But using this standard also affects how one approaches Romneycare, also passed by a state legislature.

And in the Texas DREAM Act, the state is endorsing (at least pretending to look the other way) an alien staying in the country illegally.

AM, there is no factual evidence that Perry ever voted for Reagan.

And there is no evidence that he did not vote for Reagain, either. And that is the point. If you state that particular claim as your opinion, it can stand. If you state it as fact, it will not, as you cannot prove it either way without a statement from Perry as to how he voted. FR should not be used to be used to try and establish false facts. We get enough of that from the MSM as it is.

Good ad.

However, the first 40 seconds run too fast and the images flash too quick for what is being presented to register in the mind of the viewers.

Slow the first part of the presentation down to give the viewer time to focus on what is being said/viewed. That would have greater impact.
