Republican Presidential Nominee Ron Paul is clearly very keen to be seen to be the candidate most in favour of deep public sector cuts.
Paul is pledging to cut 5 whole government departments and save the taxpayer an estimated 1 Trillion Dollars.
The ad is high energy, confident and would certainly cut through. It reminds me of a promo for a World Wrestling Entertainment pay-per-view event: not such a bad thing for trying to win over Republican hearts.
For this ad to work Paul’s polling had better show that a significant number of floating Republican voters #1 priority is “I’ll vote for whoever is going to cut hardest and fastest”.
