The Trail: 2012 Presidential News from the Field / Campaign 2012

Romney Ad Mocks Obama on ‘¡Sí Se Puede!’

August 15, 2012

 

A new ad from Mitt Romney's campaign targeting Latinos mocks President Obama’s Spanish interpretation of “Yes, we can!” -- his famous rallying cry from the 2008 campaign.

The ad begins with video of then-Sen. Obama declaring “¡Sí se puede!” but quickly dissolves to a picture of a stern-looking young man, accompanied by text in Spanish asking, “Can we?” The ad then notes that “50% of Graduates Cannot Find Work,” a claim based on an Associated Press article about recent college graduates.

 

The ad notes that 10 percent of all Hispanics are unemployed and that poverty levels among that demographic have risen since Obama took office.

A narrator asks: “Can we allow for Democrats to continue fooling us?”

It ends thus: “When Obama and his Democrat allies tell us...” – cut to Obama saying “Yes we can” again – “…we’ve got to tell them we no longer can.”
