Perry Ad Calls Obama 'Pathetic' 'Socialist'

Rick Perry's presidential campaign is out with a new ad, "Lazy," attacking President Obama for his comment that Americans have "been a little bit lazy I think over the last couple of decades."

After video of the president making that comment is shown in the ad, Perry, standing outside in a casual shirt, addresses the camera. "Can you believe that?" he says. "That's what our President thinks wrong with America? [sic] That Americans are lazy? That's pathetic." (Perry appears to have omitted an "is" from his comments.)

Perry goes on to say "it's time to clean house in Washington," an argument that squares with his recent call to overhaul all three branches of government, a proposal that includes making being a member of Congress a part-time job.
