Obama Campaign Releases Ad Hitting Back Against Mitt Romney-Castro Attack Spot

The Miami Herald reports that ex-Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, an independent, is starring in a Spanish-language ad for the Obama campaign that refutes an earlier Mitt Romney attack linking the president to Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Che Guevara.

"Have you seen the latest Mitt Romney ad exploiting the suffering of our people? We're tired of the same old, same old. President Obama doesn't want to mislead us with demagoguery. He's looking for the same thing we want," says Diaz, according to the Herald's translation.

Obama then says, in English, "We'll continue to seek ways to increase the independence of the Cuban people, who I believe are entitled to the same freedom and liberty as everyone else."

Diaz continues, "And he'll continue working seriously, with us, for a free and democratic Cuba. Of that, there is no doubt."

Obama concludes the ad, as is typical, with, "I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message" -- but in Spanish.
