Perry Ad Blasts Obama's 'Lazy' Comment

The Rick Perry campaign is rolling out a new ad on TV and the internet that slams President Obama’s recent comment that Americans “have become a bit lazy.” The ad also says Congress should cut spending or be sent home with a pay cut. Here’s the ad:

From the campaign press release:

“As President Obama continues to make excuses for our nation’s economic struggles, apologizing for America and disparaging Americans by calling us lazy, soft and un-ambitious, Gov. Perry is offering solutions to reverse the damage inflicted by this out-of-touch administration,” said Perry campaign communications director Ray Sullivan. “This ad underscores Gov. Perry’s priority to overhaul Washington through common-sense measures including a balanced budget amendment and reducing Congressional salaries.”

“Lazy” Script

Video of President Obama: “We’ve been a little bit lazy I think over the last couple of decades.”

Rick Perry:  “Can you believe that?  That’s what our President thinks is wrong with America? That Americans are lazy?”

“That’s pathetic.  It’s time to clean house in Washington.”

“It’s time for a Balanced Budget Amendment that forces Washington to stop overspending.”

“If Congress balks, cut their pay and send them home.”

“Obama’s socialist policies are bankrupting America. We must stop him now.”

“I’m Rick Perry. I approve this message.”
