Here’s Rick Perry’s new campaign ad:
Good one, isn’t it? I’d say it’s up there with recent videos from Sarah Palin, which have also been excellent.
I love the contrast between the images of a rundown America and the president’s words — the crumbling Obama poster is a nice touch. And while most commenters I’ve seen have focused on the “President Zero” voice-over, to me the most effective moments come at a couple of points where one can just hear what sounds like an air-raid siren in the background, signalling “we’re in trouble.” And then comes a very effective transition to the images and words of Governor Perry, strongly projecting his own message of hope and change, something Obama can no longer run on… unless as a self-satire.
