Rick Perry might have to slug his way through quite a few more rounds of Republican primary before he gets the nod, but in the below spot, he wastes no time on Mitt Romney and the gang, focusing instead on Barack Obama. The spot, a little too long and a lot over the top with the musical score, gets off to a strong start by letting Obama hoist himself by his own petard. Red meat for the right wing, indeed, though for independent voters (not that they are being courted at the moment), Perry might sound just a little too much like George W. Bush for comfort.
