In last night’s GOP debate, Newt Gingrich slammed Mitt Romney for a Romney campaign ad which accuses the former Speaker of calling Spanish “the language of the ghetto.” Romney, whose voice appears in that radio spot taking responsibility for its content, responded that he does not review his own ads before they air.
Gingrich was referring to a Spanish-language Romney ad called “Hechos.”
Romney told Gingrich, “I haven’t seen the ad, so I’m sorry. I don’t get to see all the TV ads.” Later, Romney said, “I doubt that’s my ad. But we’ll take a look and find out.”
But Romney’s voice appears at the end of “Hechos,” saying, “Soy Mitt Romney” and “apruebo este mensaje.” In the language both candidates want to make the sole language of the U.S government, this translates to, “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message.”
But apparently, Romney wasn’t even being truthful when he said that.
