New Rick Perry Ad Uses Romney’s Past Words and Positions to Paint Him as a “Carbon” Copy of Barack Obama – Video 10/7/11
Here is a new Rick Perry ad that hammers Mitt Romney for being a “carbon” copy of Barack Obama in his past record on supporting radical Environmental policies that killed jobs. The ad documents with both newspaper clippings and Romney’s own voice his support of policies that put onerous regulations on power plants. It then closes with Obama’s promise in 2008 that his wacko environmental plans would make electricity rates “skyrocket.”
This is a line of attack Perry’s campaign needs to continue to pursue. It is where Mitt Romney is most vulnerable. Romney ran as a near-Democrat on many issues in the 1990’s and early 2000’s, on everything from Abortion and Immigration to the Environment. Portraying Romney as a chameleon is something that already is in the minds of many GOP voters. Whether it will move voters to Perry and not to Herman Cain or someone else, is an unanswered question.
