A super PAC trying to help Texas Rep. Ron Paul is out with a new video deriding Rick Perry and Mitt Romney as “plastic men” while slamming the news media for making the GOP presidential nomination fight into a choice between “this pretty boy or that pretty boy.”
Revolution PAC is asking for donations to help run the ad in key primary states and plans what it’s calling a “super bomb” fundraiser for Sept. 19. Paul set fundraising records in the 2008 campaign with his targeted, “money bomb” fundraisers.
“The substantial differences between the GOP candidates are becoming increasingly clear,” says Tom Woods, chairman of Revolution PAC’s advisory board. “The question now becomes: Will the American people accept being governed by establishment-driven plastic men and automatons or will they opt for the constitutional consistency, incorruptibility and real economic foresight of Ron Paul?”
The video ad features animated renditions of Romney, signing Massachusetts’ health care law, as the announcer says the legislation was “praised by President Obama.” The Massachusetts health care law, like the national one signed by Obama, contains an insurance mandate. Romney is seen in the ad seated next to Obama, who slaps a gold star on Romney’s forehead, and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.
