    Battle of the Iowa ads

    Battle of the Iowa ads

    Newt Gingrich just released his first Iowa television ad, a few days after Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul did so. (Some SuperPACs have been running ads longer, but these are from the campaigns.) Very different themes, with Newt keeping it in a “Morning in America” style (the background music is fromt he movie Rudy), Perry clearly focusing on religious voters, Romney touting business experience, and Paul poking Washington in the eye.

    All were good ads. I wish Ron Paul had a different view on foreign policy – I like that “gone” plan for those departments and bureaus! Just some of the many which need to be “gone” – privatized or just plain eliminated. But no, not Ron Paul. No. The world in crisis says it is not Paul, if America is to remain free.

    Perry, Romney…….not enough, I’m afraid, to make me change my views at this point.

    Love the Newt ad. Love it. Good tone. Positive message. Provides inspiration and vision.

    Now, which one will Iowans respond to? That is the question.

    All of them are good ads, although Romney’s sounds like the cookie-cutter politician that he is. My favorite was Newt’s because it reminded me of Reagan.

    The Newt ad is pitch perfect. Pure Americanism.

    Given that this is happening I think Gov. Perry’s simple message resonates. Measures like this effect every person of faith…no matter what the faith is.

    “Walter Reed National Military Medical Center said they are rescinding a policy that prohibits family members of wounded military troops from bringing Bibles or any religious reading materials to their loved ones.

    ” “The President of the United States should address this and should excoriate the people who brought about this policy and the individual who brought it about should be dismissed from the United States Military,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told Fox News & Commentary.

    King spoke from the House floor Thursday blasting a policy memorandum from the commander of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center written by Chief of Staff C.W. Callahan. The September 14th memo covers guidelines for “wounded, ill, and injured partners in care.”

    “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading material, and/or artifacts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit,” the policy states.

    “That means you can’t bring in a Bible and read from it when you visit your son or your daughter, perhaps – or your wife or husband,” King said. “It means a priest that might be coming in to visit someone on their death bed couldn’t bring in the Eucharist, couldn’t offer Last Rites. This is the most outrageous affront.”

    Folks of traditional Judeo-Christian faiths arewrried and upset with rising antisemitism and antichristian messages promoted in legal battles, secular engineering policies and in the public square as seen recently in many OWS protests which were blatant in their antisemitism.
    These tactics are modeled on the secular socialist policies of Europe and another strong indication of Tone deaf Liberals doing everything they can to make America into a pale imitation of a socialist Europe.

    Aside from my definite support of Gov. Perry for his plans & his record, this is why I think his simple message is affective to target the group of faithful because none of us should feel intimidated by anyone because of our faith(s) which our constitution protects our freedom to practice our religion(s).
