Buddy Roemer for President
"Reforming America" +
:60 radio ad to run in NH, released Dec. 23, 2011.
Roemer: This is Buddy Roemer and I

Staters, send a message to Washington. Send Buddy Roemer.
Paid for by Buddy Roemer for President.

"The messages are the

wrong direction for a while. It didn’t start in 2008 or 2004. This ad
draws a clear contrast between a consistent, conservative reformer like
myself, someone who has walked the walk for over 30 years, and
candidates like Gingrich and Romney who are constantly reinventing
themselves in an effort to get some distance from their big-government
