Presidential wannabe Ron Paul (R-Did You Miss Me?) is back in da hizzouse!
(Via Politico’s Morning Score)
EXCLUSIVE – PAUL GOING ON THE AIR IN TEXAS: As he kicks off a three-day campaign swing across his home state—with town halls in College Station, Fort Worth and San Antonio—Ron Paul is going on the air with a memorable 30-second ad that makes parting shots at all three of his remaining opponents and ends with the cracking of a whip. This is part of a six-figure buy that will air statewide on cable and targeted broadcast. The campaign is also staffing up in Texas and plans a hard push for the May 29th primary.
THE SCRIPT: “Let’s get this straight – we’re debating between a big-spending, debt-ceiling-raising fiscal liberal, the Moon colony guy, a moderate from Massachusetts or a Texan with a real plan to balance the budget,” the narrator says. “Get with it people. Only one candidate can stand up for Texas. Ron Paul isn’t playing games. Five federal bureaucracies – gone! A trillion dollars cut [in] year one. Get Washington off your back. Big. Bold. Texan!”
Can we agree that Ron Paul has had the funkiest TV spots of the 2012 GOP presidential primary?
I knew we could.
