Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is the latest candidate for president out with a movie trailer-style campaign ad, with a new one Tuesday taking aim at his foes for the GOP nomination in 2012.
The new ad, "The One," lumps in Republican candidates — Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) — with President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in a montage decrying "smooth-talking politicians" and "games of ‘he said, she said.' "
The spot, which will begin airing in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two nominating contests of the 2012 cycle, portrays Paul as the only consistently conservative candidate able to unite the GOP against Obama.
The ad is reminiscent of the spots that erstwhile candidate Tim Pawlenty, the former Minnesota governor, had run during his campaign.
"Ron Paul, the one who can beat Obama and restore America now," says the spot's tag line, over dramatic music in the background.
