Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s campaign launched a new website Thursday that signals an all-out attack on Perry as a “career politician” who has no chance of beating President Barack Obama.
The new website,, features a video claiming, “Nearly half of new jobs in Texas over the last four years went to illegal immigrants.”
The video goes on to note Perry’s dismissal of criticisms that his job creation claims in Texas are questionable and compares his state economic record with Obama’s national record.
“Incumbent politician, bad jobs record, won’t face the facts. Sound Familiar?” the video’s text reads. Then it rolls into a clip of Obama saying the economy is turning around.
“If Rick Perry and Barack Obama don’t think there’s a problem, how can they fix it,” the video concludes.
The Perry campaign has dismissed the website as little more than an effort by Romney to focus attention away from his own flip-flopping on issues.
Perry spokesman Mark Miner told U.S. New and World Report that Romney’s policies “put him more in line with President Obama than Republican primary voters.”
The website also goes after Perry on other issues, particularly his support for in-state tuition for illegal immigrants — a position that Obama also supports, the site says.
The website is part of stepped up effort by the Romney campaign to emphasize that the one-term former Massachusetts governor has spent more time in the private sector than he has in public office.
“Our nation needs an economic turnaround led by Mitt Romney, who has spent his life in the private sector and knows how jobs are created, and why they are lost,” the site says. “Career politicians got us into this mess, and they won’t help us get out of it.”
