Rick Perry Ad Uses Mitt Romney's Words Against Him

"Words have meaning."

Interesting. I must admit that I feel somewhat bad for Rick Perry. Both he and Romney have baggage that will alienate the GOP base: Perry has his stance on immigration, Romney has his stance on healthcare (from when he was Governor of Massachusetts).

However, in all of the debates in which Perry has participated, the immigration issue -- coupled with the Gardasil/HPV vaccine -- have dominated the conversation. The candidates continually pile-on Governor Perry. All the while, Mitt Romney is biding his time, making sure that he doesn't slip-up.

If Rick Perry wants to win this thing -- and I think he does (unlike Newt Gingrich) -- he needs to take the fight to Romney. The ad above does just that.

The question remains: can Perry get any traction with this type of attack?
