Perry to run ads in New Hampshire

Durham, New Hampshire (CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry's first television ad in New Hampshire hits the airwaves Wednesday, CNN has learned.

The ad, "I'm a Doer not a Talker," began running in Iowa this week. It features Perry speaking straight into the camera about his jobs record in Texas.

"If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that, and he's destroying our economy," Perry says. "I'm a doer, not a talker."

The ad will run on cable and on New Hampshire news station WMUR, said Perry senior adviser Paul Young. He called it "a significant buy" but would not discuss specific figures.

Radio ads will also run statewide.

The ad confronts head-on Perry's struggles at a series of GOP debates, which analysts say have hurt his poll numbers. A CNN/Time/ORC poll from last week put Perry's support in New Hampshire at 4%.

He was in the state Friday to file his paperwork for candidacy in the state's primary and to speak to a conservative group in the state.

    I wonder if oil creates jobs in the other 49 states. What will Texans do when the oil is depleted?

    Where? Where do you go to work? Did you forgot the rant in your previoius posts about the high unemployment? Are so old that you are having a senior moment, or do you just make it up as you spin out of control?

    "these alleged regulations and corporate taxes that are "smothering" economic growth. You don't know of any, do you?
    Constant talk of tax increases, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank to name a few. You been livin' under a rock or what?"

    The only thing smothering economic growth is that the GOP promised the rich and giant corporations that if they kept the eeconomy bad through 2012 and sawt on their capital, the GOP would reward them with even more tax cuts and deregulation if it helped them get elected.

    es showing up on the golf course or campaign fund raisers count? Take those away and we have a less than part time buffoon "leading" the country (to ruin).
    The buffoon "leading" the country that you are referring to must be Speaker Boehner. He plays more golf, attends more fund raisers, and makes more campaign speeches than the President.

    Oh yeah, Don't forget that this year's "budget contains 98%" of what Boehner asked for. He got his Xmas wish in spades. In other words, the failed job creation rests more on his shoulders because he made sure Obama's policies were rebuffed. Don't you remember celebrating that fact, and the positive jobs growth during the first three months of this year. That's what I thought. You make it up as rant along.

    @Democrat Party – blah blah blah:

    Seriously – you need to go back on your meds.

    You use terms like socialist and communist and progressive interchangeably – demonstrating that you dont know the definition of any of them. You spew incoherent nonsense about Venezuela, Mussolini, North Korea, and even Hitler to try to make a splash – again only proving that you are completely ignorant of world history or America's place in it.

    You are either very very ignorant, or a bald-faced liar and troll who loves nothing more than to 'rile people up'. You dim the lights on your own 'cause' and only prove with every word just how little reasoning there is behind the whole GOP premise.
