(SteveWatson) – In a brand new ad released by the Ron Paul 2012 campaign today, Rick Perry’s intimate ties to Al Gore’s presidential campaign are laid bare, as Paul exposes the fact to GOP voters that the current frontrunner is anything but a real conservative.
The 60 second spot, which will air as part of a six-figure ad buy in New Hampshire and Iowa, is entitled simply “Trust”.
The video highlights how Paul was one of only four Republican Congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign.
“The establishment called him extreme and unelectable, they said he was the wrong man for the job.” the ad begins.
“After Reagan, Sen. Al Gore ran for president pledging to raise taxes and increase spending,” the ad states. “Rick Perry helped lead Al Gore’s campaign to undo the Reagan revolution.”
“Now America must decide who to trust, Al Gore’s Texas cheerleader or the one who stood with Reagan – Ron Paul.” the spot concludes.
The ad continues the Hollywood blockbuster theme used in Paul’s previous two ads, both of which quickly became viral internet hits earlier this Summer.
The Paul campaign has stated that they hope to place the spot on TV during Wednesday’s GOP presidential debate that airs on MSNBC.
Watch the ad:
When Perry entered the 2012 race just a few weeks ago, he immediately began parroting Ron Paul’s fiscal conservative and anti-big government values.
Unlike Congressman Ron Paul, however, Perry cannot possibly paint himself up as a fiscally responsible anti-establishment candidate.
Under Perry’s governorship, Texas soaked up $22 billion in stimulus money from the federal government’s bailout package.
During his 11 year tenure, Texas has run up a $13.4 billion deficit, which is 31.5% of the 2011 budget. The Lone Star state has the 3rd highest deficit in the entire country behind only California and Illinois.
Perry’s rhetoric simply does not dovetail with his record.
Ron Paul, on the other hand sits on the Joint Economic Committee, the House Committee on Financial Services, and is Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy. Paul has held a steadfast position on fiscal responsibility for over thirty years and has a voting record to match.
20 plus years ago, back when Perry was expending all his energy promoting Al Gore, Ron Paul was warning the country of the Federal Reserve takeover and the inevitable economic crises that would result.
During an appearance on the Alex Jones Show last week, Ron Paul described Perry as a “flip-flopper”, pointing out that the Texas Governor had also strongly supported the ill fated Hillarycare in 1993.
Anyone with half a brain can clearly see that Perry, the template of a career politician, a man who has flip flopped not only between issues, but even between the two parties, is not going to bring economic prosperity back to the country. The only candidate who has the will to do so and the record to back it up is Ron Paul.
“Congressman Paul has an unparalleled record of championing true conservative principles,” said Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton in a statement. “Dr. Paul’s ideas of limited Constitutional government, sound money and balanced budgets have won the day.”
“Other candidates are trying to parrot Dr. Paul’s principles, but their records prove they cannot be trusted to live up to their rhetoric. Dr. Paul is the only candidate with the credibility and integrity to restore America now.”
