New Perry ad bashes Gingrich, Romney on health care mandate

December 8, 2011

A day after releasing an incendiary ad condemning gays serving in the military and “Obama’s war on religion,” the Perry campaign has put out a new campaign video, this one focused on his rivals’ stances on the individual mandate.

“We don’t want government-mandated health care,” says a voice-over in the ad:

Yet Newt Gingrich supports it.

And Mitt Romney — he put it into law in Massachusetts.

Worse, Barack Obama forced it on the entire nation.

Rick Perry? He’ll repeal it, starting day one.

The video cuts to Perry, walking through the same scenic outdoor background as yesterday’s ad (though wearing a different jacket), who tells viewers he’s an “outsider” and “won’t let the big government liberals ruin this country.”

Check out the ad, via rickperry.org, below. And be sure to catch his spin-and-grin at the 0:26 mark:

His image is shot. The perception is that he is G W Bush II.
