Trailing in a new Iowa poll, Republican Rick Perry says in a new ad running in the state that his jobs record is more important than on-camera polish.
The Texas governor is trying to convert criticism of his performances during recent debates into an asset by arguing that President Barack Obama _ and implicitly his chief GOP rival Mitt Romney _ are better speakers than leaders.
Perry says: "If you're looking for a slick politician, or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that, and he's destroying our economy. I'm a doer not a talker."
Perry had support from 7 percent of likely Iowa GOP caucus-goers in a poll published Sunday by The Des Moines Register.
Perry, with an aggressive Iowa strategy, is expected back twice this week.
