Let The $4 Billion* Rumpus Begin! ( Make Us Great Again Edition)

(* The amount that will likely be spent on political ads this election cycle.)

GOP presidential wannabe Rick Perry (R-Have I Stopped Laughing Yet?) is now being propped up by a $382,000 ad campaign just launched in Iowa and South Carolina by the Perry-loving Super PAC Make Us Great Again.

The South Carolina ad:

 

The Iowa ad:

 

The transcripts (via Politico Playbook):

–S.C. version, “Leadership”: “His dad was a tenant farmer. His wife, a nurse. Rick Perry served in the Air Force, then came home to farm cotton. A solid conservative, Perry made his state the leader in manufacturing exports, passed major lawsuit reform, cut burdensome regulations. The result: 1 million new jobs. Rick Perry: conservative leadership that works. Make Us Great Again is responsible for the content of this ad.” 

–Iowa version, “Conservative”: “His dad was a tenant farmer. His wife, a nurse. Rick Perry served in the Air Force, then came home to farm cotton. A solid conservative, Perry’s balanced every budget, passed major lawsuit reform, cut 15 BILLION in spending. The result: 1 million new jobs. Rick Perry: conservative leadership that works. Make Us Great Again is responsible for the content of this ad.”

That works quite nicely with Perry’s own Iowa ad, but it’s merely a coincidence according to MSNBC’s First Read:

The two [Make Us Great Again] ads (here and here) are similar, and they dovetail with the Perry campaign’s own positive ads in Iowa. *** CLARIFICATION *** First Read is no way implying Make Us Great Again is coordinating with the Perry campaign; we were just noting the coincidence of the timing and the states involved.

Uh-huh.

    One of my pet peeves: Governors running for POTUS who claim they balanced their state budgets every year. State Constitutions REQUIRE balanced budgets! If their opponents had won and served, the budgets would STILL have been balanced.
