Ron Paul calls Romney, et al "Shih-Tzus" in latest ad

in Uncategorized by

Ron Paul’s new ad, which will go up today on broadcast and cable in Iowa and New Hampshire, is a mix between truck commercial and action-movie trailer. Here’s the 30-second script: “What’s up with these sorry politicians? Lots of bark! But when it’s show time? Whimpering like little Shih-Tzus. You want big cuts? Ron Paul’s been screaming it for years. Budget crisis? No problem. Cut a trillion bucks year one. That’s trillion with a T. Department of Education? Gone! Interior? Energy? HUD? Commerce? Gone! Later, bureaucrats. That’s how Ron Paul rolls. Want to drain the swamp? Ron Paul. Do it!” The spot, which implicitly contrasts the nonconformist Texas congressman and his establishmentarian opponents, comes after Paul’s strong second-place showing in this weekend’s Des Moines Register poll. The campaign calls the buy “large” but did not disclose a specific sum.
