New Perry Ad Features Military Veterans

DES MOINES, Iowa (CBSNEWS.COM) – Rick Perry’s final message to Iowa voters before the holidays evokes pride and patriotism in a new ad released by the campaign featuring several military veterans voicing their support for the Texas governor.

“Governor Perry — he is the best person to serve as commander in chief,” says Daniel Moran, a veteran who was wounded in Iraq and stumped for Perry during the first part of the governor’s Iowa bus tour.

Marcus Luttrell, another longtime Perry friend and veteran, appears saying, “Governor Rick Perry – he is one of the most honorable men I’ve ever met.”

Many of the veterans have appeared in previous Perry campaign materials showing his base of support among those who served in the military. Luttrell was also featured in a spot that ran over Thanksgiving.

Perry’s voice can be heard touting his outsider status as both color and black-and-white images of returning military personnel flash across the screen.”I’m the outsider who’s willing to step on some toes. We can surely recapture what is great about America. And we can restore this nation to its preeminence in the world as a beacon of individual liberty and economic prosperity. And there is no greater cause in our time.”

    I really hate how veterans and active military people are exploited for political and commerical means. Whether it be Rick Perry, Jane Seymour (and her stupid necklaces) or Hallmark (featuring a soldier). Don’t exploit these Americans who are willing to lay their lives on the line for their country!!!

    Rick Perry don’t give a damn about our Military Veterans, how many homeless Veterans we have on the streets in the State of Texas? How many Veterans do we have in Texas inneed of Medical care? If it was left up to Rick Perry we wouldn’t have our Troops coming home for the Holidays. Perry is not fitting to be Governor of any State he was given the job through his friends—-do me a favor—–I will do you a favor this is why he is trying so hard to be President of the United States.(what a dummy)
