Newt Uses Specter Of Cuba To Win Florida Votes

Newt Gingrich has a new TV ad up in Florida in both English and Spanish, claiming that Barack Obama is moving the country toward socialism or communism as a way to appeal to Florida’s Cuban voters. A translation of the Spanish ad from the Miami Herald:

My family came to this country looking for liberty and a dream. But now the United States is resembling the government they fled. Socialized medicine, taxes that paralyze businesses. But Newt Gingrich wants to rebuild the United States that we so love. Newt balanced the budget and created 11 million new jobs. He will be able to do it again. My family knows what it is to lose the homeland they love. It won’t happen to us again. Newt knows us. Together, let’s retake the country we so love. I’m Newt Gingrich, and I approve this message.

Watch in Spanish:

The English version is a little more subtle. The Washington Post has it here.
