Video of the Day: Perry's Strategy Is to Call Romney a Hypocrite

More

A Web-ad war has broken out between Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Romney's campaign posted and then pulled a rather condescending Web ad from YouTube last night. (It was essentially a montage of Rick Perry stumbling in live TV debates.) Today, Perry's campaign released the above video calling Romney a hypocrite.

In Tuesday night's debate, Perry went straight at Romney for alleged hypocrisies; most notably, he harped on Romney's hiring of a lawn company that employed illegal immigrants. In previous debates, Perry had been smoked by Romney, for lack of a better term. He'd spent most of his screen time fending off attacks over his executive order for HPV vaccines or bringing up energy policy, sometimes out of context. The hard-charging accusations marked a new style for the governor.

Now, Perry has made those accusations again in an aggressive Web ad. We can only assume it's his new campaign blueprint.
