If Iowa voters see this ad — there may be an upset in the works.
The only candidate with solid values and a belief in America. If this ad doesn't do it in Iowa it will probably cause a groundswell nationally.
True Perry is a tea party conservative, but Bachman and Satorum are as well. We just need to pick one and beat Romney. I think Perry should be the one bcuz of his organization skills and fundraising power. (Not to mention his executive experience in Texas)
Joshua Rojas This is the most intelligent post I've read.
Inspiring people with no real content! Great job! *Note the sarcasm*.
Rick Perry – Inspiring people with no content adds because he doesn't have the brains to do anything else.
Susan Keller And what have YOU ever done better?
Susan Keller …"no content ADDS?" Your liberal Arts, teachers college, education has made you so intellectually superior yet you cannot spell ADS! Your ready to teach in gubermint schools!
Michael Guyton BooYAW!!! that was a great reply. yes, liberals have dumbed down education in favor of indoctrination.
I added an extra "d" in the word ad. Deal with it. It's called a typographical error. Now for the liberal bit, who says I'm a liberal? I don't like Rick Perry. He's an embarrassment. I live in Texas and have watched him for quite some time. I don't trust him and I don't like his politics. As for indoctrination, republicans who wish to include intelligent design and mandatory school prayer as well as "adjusted" history are doing their part to dumb down schools as well. It would be nice to have a candidate who would represent the majority of the populous -that would be those who's views exist between the two extremes of red or blue. Furthermore to answer the statement "what have YOU (I) ever done better", I volunteer many hours a week, donate money, and many other things.
Wow. That's a nice ad. I like Perry ove Santorum for his jobs record. Other than that they are both great.
Joshua, you do know Santorum voted for Medicare Part D as well as no child left behind don't you? These are both Big Government Socialist programs and UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
No I didnt. But they both have their flaws. Like I said I am leaning toward Perry for his Jobs and executive record in Texas. Other than that they are both better than Romney and "the crazy uncle in the basement" Ron Paul.
It's a shame he doesn't act this way in real life. I will give it to him he is a great actor in a stage setting where he can read cue cards. Cause his speaking from the heart is what gets him into trouble. I guess he has that in common with Obama. They both like teleprompters. Heaven for bid one teleprompter goes out.
I have never seen Rick Perry with a teleptompter. Have you even seen him speak?
Well, obie got elected on his ability to stir the masses with impassioned reading, at least Perry has substance.
My problem with Perry is that he attended the Bilderberg meeting in Istanbul in 2007. He's a NWO Puppet!
Yikes, sounds like your listening to Alex Jones conspiracy theories Melissa.
What a dumb ass statement…you must be a RON PAUL supporter. Mr. Conspiracy Theorist himself! Wake up we need some mature and sober thinking to confront the problems our nation is facing!
Attending the conference means nothing. Many people attend.
Personally, I feel ALL (everyone) of the Republican candidates should be saying this and NO MATTER which one (sorry except for Ron Paul, I am NOT a supporter of him) should become our Republican Nominee, each of them should be SUPPORTING that nominee full force. The point of this years election is to make Obama a ONE TERM PRESIDENT. I just hope that once these candidates start dropping out that they will go full force for one of the other candidates to help them keep going strong.
Millions of Americans have lost their jobs, businesses, life savings, homes, health care, and even their marriages. Our country is in desperate need of a real leader who is a DO'ER, not a talker, nor do we need some 78-year-old policy wonk…who has never accomplished anything in his life worth qualifying him for POTUS.
RINO ROMNEY, and NEWT…the ULTIMATE POLITICAL INSIDER, are representative of the reasons why the TEA Party MOVEMENT came into being and exists today.
Our country needs a PROVEN Leader…RICK PERRY is the only one.
WOW! the same exact rhetoric I have been hearing from every politician EVER.
You just get out of High School?
No. did you just get accepted to university? Were you waiting for me to respond with a " no" so you could hurl some baseless insult towards me? Or was that an earnest question?
If i get this straight then all i have to do to win your vote as a politician is just simply promise that " i got your back and feign humility in regards to my position in our nations governance and then play at you with the " it's about the children " card whilst displaying videos of me getting along with people in social situations.
Please sir. Pandering to emotionally crippled americans with mind numbingly cliche statements is not what i want to hear or see from a potential leader. This is the political equivalent of allstate's " you're in good hands" slogan. It's like mitt romney saying that if we elect him that "america will be strong"
Here is what i have gathered from this ad
The future is what we are talking about
This election is about children
my country is calling me
Rick perry supposedly has my back so long as i vote for him
Rick perry is supposedly humble because he states a couple times that " this is bigger than him."
And you expect any honest thinking person to look at these age old generic reassurances and promises and not be disgusted by the obvious feigned enthusiasm and concern?
Please, only a weak mind buys into the left-right paradigm, although i am sure your natural drive to "win" anything and everything that even sounds remotely like a challenge to your ideals and choices will bypass your ability to objectively analyze individuals. Hey it's OK, i do it to, we all do, the first step to true self awareness and intelligence is to admit our cognitive limitations and to do our best to work around them.
I'm sorry joe, it seems to me that the only intelligent people that are moved by this ad are those who are only merely intelligent enough to operate a TV remote. IT utalizes every single trick we learned in film class in order to draw emotion from the audience. Did you know that the greek theatre was essentially a public therapy session with scenes and stories purposely devised to draw certain emotions from the audience? These techniques are still alive and well today, one of the most common being background music. I like how he chose something that sounds like an epic Aaron Copeland piece to be the backdrop against these images of him having a "good time" with his supporters.
I'm sorry it takes more than friendly looking images and canned promises to win this free-thinking FREEDOM LOVING american over.
I value freedom, which is why i will NOT be voting in the same tired old politicians.
And for the record i am a god-loving right-wing conservative libertarian.
Keep voting in closet Liberals republicans. Do you guys even know what your name means anymore?
4 people are unable to respond with an intelligent and well thought out response.
I hope the voters of Iowa are smart enough to recognize that this ad says absolutely nothing. It has flag waving, music, and.. and I can't remember the third one. He doesn't advocate any policies and he doesn't list a single thing he did as governor. I'll give him credit for not demonstrating contempt for many of our men and women in the armed forces like he did in an earlier ad.
The third one would be his record, which is stellar and bears some serious contemplation. And if you're trying to tell me that Rick Perry, the veteran, ever demonstrated contempt for fellow veterans… well… You must have been watching a Ron Paul ad because Rick Perry is a veteran's veteran…
Kathy Horner Somers, if he wants to run on his record, then his ads should focus on his record. He has nothing to say in this ad. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't see anything about policy or his record in this ad.
Perry certainly demonstrated contempt for some veterans when he stated that only heterosexuals should serve openly in the military.
Erik Jensen LMAO!!!
I'm excited for Rick Perry to come to South Carolina and campaign. I pray he does well. GOOD LUCK GOVERNOR….
