It’s pretty powerful.

    That is a very good ad.

  2. Kevin Baker Says:

    Yes, yes it is.

  3. HL Says:

    Reaganesque.

  4. pdb Says:

    We could do worse. And maybe we won’t have to!

  5. ZCORR Says:

    I have to say that is probably one of the most powerful campaign ads I’ve seen.

  6. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Not bad, considering half his words came from the Gipper. Over a year to go, though. A lot can happen, so I caution Patience until one can Vote in their State’s Primary. But the Republitards should have it settled by next Memorial Day, so we’ll see if we have to hold our Noses then.

  7. DirtCrashr Says:

    Damn, that’s killer.

  8. Speakertweaker Says:

    I dig it. That was good video all by itself, even without the message.

    It’s a great ad, except for the fact that he didn’t say one single, fucking thing– nothing that would suggest any particular guiding principle. Nothing that would indicate what he wants to accomplish, or how. Zero, zilch, nada.

    “I believe in America.”

    OK. Me too. I believe that America exists. It’s pretty hard to deny it.

    “I believe that the best deeds are reserved for future generations.”

    What the hell is that? Is he saying we’re too lazy to do them? What are they? What would he like them to be? Blank out.

    Usually, Republican socialists want us to believe that they can run our lives for us better than the Democrat socialists can run our lives for us. I see nothing in that ad to indicate that this basic trend has changed. If there is something actually there to contradict me and I missed it, I await your correction.

    Barack Obama isn’t worthy of having his ass stuck on the toe of Rick Perry’s boot, but that’s going to happen anyway.

  11. Lyle Says:

    Rick Perry may be the greatest defender of liberty in all of history for all I know, but there’s nothing in that ad to suggest it. Obama said all the same crap, Carter and Clinton said it, and Chairman Freakin’ Mao probably said all the same things about China too.

    That ad is the very thing (I thought) we’ve been complaining about– it’s a blank screen upon which we are invited to project our own wishes, dreams and fantasies. It is an example of what I’ve said right here more than a dozen times;
    “Meanwhile, the Republicans are busy trying to figure out what it is they should pretend to believe…” Only this is worse– it doesn’t say one thing he pretends to believe, except that we do know now, for sure, that he acknowledges the existence of America– something that was pretty well settled around 500 years ago and is therefore a safe position to take (America is a contenent, you will recall. The U.S. was established rather later).

  12. Joaquin Says:

    What do you wanna bet his best idea for creating more jobs is to pray for them?

    That was his answer for taxes. And for drought. That’s the best idea he’s got, period. God is not a doting mom, always there to fix our screw-ups for us. If you vote for Perry, you might as well vote for a scarecrow in a suit, because that’s all the wisdom and experience and well-reasoned decision-making he’s got in him.

    I have to agree with Lyle that this is not at all a powerful ad, simply because Perry says absolutely nothing of substance, just hyperbole and rhetoric to stir the emotions, and clearly it has worked.

  13. Lyle Says:

    I’m still waiting for anyone to point one single thing he actually said.

    The concept of saying you mean, and meaning what you say, has apparently been lost, or forgotten, or is willfully avoided. I don’t know. Maybe a combination of all three.

  14. liberal gun lover Says:

    Perry dose not defend liberty. The right to bear arms is only second to one other right, the separation of church and state. He passed a bill giving tax money to churches. He must hate the constitution. Removing funding from women’s health clinks is fine but giving it to churches is not.

  15. fucema Says:

    That video tries to appeal to the viewer the same way Obama’s campaign did in 2008. I’m with Lyle on this one.

    Fortunately we can actually examine Perry’s views and actions in the past. Unlike Obama who really was all talk.

    The only Texan candidate we should support is Ron Paul. This man is ideologically consistent and has been spreading the same message for close to 30 years.

  16. Scott Says:

    Chas-
    What delusional boot toe is stuck up your ass?
    Pray, Chas, PRAY….

  17. Lyle Says:

    “That video tries to appeal to the viewer the same way Obama’s campaign did in 2008.”

    Probably it was produced by the same people, for that matter. That’s how it often goes. It is a very, very incestuous, small group of people that constitute the public face of politics.
