Presidential hopeful Rick Perry hits hard at President Barack Obama in a powerful new ad that blames him for the nation’s economic decline and portrays the Texas governor as the nation’s rescuer who will create new jobs and put the country back on sound financial footing.
The online, 30-second spot tags Obama with the label “President Zero” as images of shuttered homes and empty businesses flash rapidly on the screen. Obama can be heard in an old speech proclaiming, “We are headed in the right direction.”
Fade to black and a second later, the faint sound of galloping hooves can be heard as the image of horses and an American flag appear on the screen.
Story continues below video.

The commercial touts Perry’s service in the military “for freedom,” and advances him as “a president who will lead the nation” out of its economic crisis.
“A great country requires a better direction; a renewed nation needs a new president . . . we don’t need a president that apologizes for America,” Perry says in the voiceover.
“The United States of America really is the last great hope of mankind,” he says, as images of Perry and Americans at work and play in better times roll by.
The ad is timed to run before Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate in Florida. According to the latest polls, Perry maintains a slight lead in the Republican nomination fight over former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
