Rick Perry: 'This is Omaha Beach'

Tuesday, 03 Jan 2012 02:20 PM

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up his caucus volunteers this morning with a speech rife with historical comparisons, and likened the battle to defeat Barack Obama to Omaha Beach.

The D-Day landings in Normandy in 1944 were among the deadliest of WWII.

"This election is about stopping a president of the United States and his administration that is abusing the Constitution of this country, that is putting America on a track to bankruptcy," Perry told some 200 volunteers, MSNBC reports.

"It is a powerful moment in Americans' history, and you are on the front lines," he added. "This is Concord. This is Omaha Beach. This is going up the hill realizing that the battle is worth winning."

Hs supporters have been in Des Moines since after the Christmas holidays. Some 500 will fan out to caucus locations to advocate for the governor.
