The similarity of the two ads demonstrates that Governor Roemer has been one of the most consistent candidates on the issue of corruption in politics. In the 1987 ad, Roemer says, "I don't like Louisiana politics… I love Louisiana." In the 2011 ad, Roemer says that he “loves America, but we are a nation in trouble. You don’t trust government, nor should you.”
"The messages are the same," says Roemer. “We have been headed in 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 initiatives."
"The election comes down to a question of trust," says Roemer in the new radio ad. "I’d rather not run for President. I’d rather America was whole again. So I came to New Hampshire for a reason… ‘Live Free or Die.’ Granite Staters, send a message to Washington. Send Buddy Roemer."
