Obama/SEIU Spanish Ad Attacks Romney

From Fox News Latino:

Spanish Ad By Obama Backers Labels Romney ‘Two Faced’

The SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, and Priorities USA Action, the super-PAC helping President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, have released a new Spanish language radio ad airing in Tampa and Orlando attacking Mitt Romney.

The ad is expected to run over the next several weeks at a cost of "six figures" that would be "split" between both organizations, according to Paul Begala, Senior Advisor of Priorities USA Action.

Priorities USA is an Obama campaign front. It was set up back in April by a pair of ex-White House staffers: Bill Burton, who was Obama’s first deputy press secretary, and Sean Sweeney, who served as a senior adviser to Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. And, as the article notes, former Clinton flack, Paul Begala is a Senior Advisor.

Their stated goal is to raise some $100 million dollars to re-elect Obama. The SEIU is a major contributor.

"We feel like Romney is misleading voters and we want to be there to correct the record," Begala said in a teleconference. "If elected President, Mitt Romney’s policies would be devastating to Hispanic families. In a Romney administration, the tax burden would shift onto middle class families in order to protect corporations and the wealthiest Americans."

The 60 second ad is entitled ‘Dos Caras’ or Two Faces. The commercial’s main purpose is to highlight, what organizers say, is Romney’s two-faced message to the Latino community.

"In Spanish [ads] he says he believes in us, and in English he says he would veto the DREAM Act and would deport immigrants," said Eliseo Medina, SEIU Secretary-Treasurer. "For Latinos immigration is a defining personal issue."

Apparently, having illegal aliens in the country doesn’t hurt the Hispanics who are in this country legally, and who pay taxes. And they don’t take jobs away from them, either.

Still, isn’t it funny how the economy is never a ‘zero sum game’ when illegal aliens are involved

The ad specifically mentions Romney’s embrace of his endorsement by Kris Kobach – the chief architect of the country’s most controversial state immigration laws…

Romney’s comment in Monday nights NBC Debate regarding self deportation has also fueled outrage from the SEIU.

"I heard about these candidates talk about self deportation and it clearly said to me what they think a bout the Latino community and immigrants," Medina said. "Make their life miserable so that they leave the country."

"Right now, it’s the moment for Mitt Romney to feel the love," Begala said. "The ad will continue to run when Romney packs up and hits west."

[T]he SEIU and Priorities USA Action, say that this ad is just the beginning

We are sure it is just the beginning.

But remember when US labor unions used to try to preserve jobs for Americans?

    The regime is moving quickly to lock up the all-important illegal alien vote.
