Obama on the Florida airwaves in Spanish

Barack Obama's campaign today unveils a new Spanish language radio ad, Bootstraps, which presents Obama as just another guy making his way through life, suggesting that his upbringing as the son of an immigrant reflects "hard working, immigrant and Hispanic values."

Bootstraps will air in Colorado, Florida, New Mexico and Nevada. Click below to read the script.

UPDATE: The campaign just sent out a revised script. First version is below the revised version:

Nuestro Propio Camino" I´m Barack Obama and I approve this message.

Voiceover: Some people have power and connections. But most of us have to make our own way through life. This is true even for the man who could become the next President ... Barack Obama. He grew up without a father - raised by his mother with the support of his grandparents. Through student loans and hard work, he graduated from college. Obama never forgot his roots...He worked with churches to help families get job training and after-school care for their children. In the State Senate, he passed a law that helped reduce the welfare roles by over 80% by helping families to secure jobs. And despite the political pressure, Obama has stood with us for immigration reform and spoke out for our veterans. It's time we had a President who understands we all deserve a chance to make our own way."


Here's the first version: "Some people have power and connections. But most of us have to make our own way through life. This is true even for the man who could become the next president..Barack Obama. His father was an immigrant. His mother from a humble, middle class family. Though student loans and hard work, he graduated from college.

"Obama never pulled people down as he made his way up...He worked with churches to help families get job training and after-school care for their children. In the state Senate, he passed a law that helped reduce the welfare rolls by over 80 percent by helping families to secure jobs. And despite the political pressure, Obama has stood with us for immigration reform and spoke out for our veterans. It's time time we had a President who understands we all deserve a chance to make our own way."

gain the flip flopper shifter telling us what we want to hear. As an Independent voter I want to know where he stands. Mccain even if i don't agree with in many subjects, i only can look at his record and KNOW. Obama, his record is full of "NOT VOTING" His program, written by his crew says one thing and he says another depending on the audience he is addressing. Just took out his wife out of the campaign, dished his spiritula advisor of 20 years and only tells you what you want to hear. I don't trust him, CAN YOU?

Guayames, you said "Mccain even if i don't agree with in many subjects, i only can look at his record and KNOW."

Probably you know something that Jorge Mas Santos, Chairman of the Cuban American National Foundation, who backed Senator Obama at the Intercontinental Hotel on or about May 23, 2008, doesn't know.

When exercising your sacred right to vote and before, to avoid misleading the gullibles that hear you talking and writing, you should consider the opinnion of former Rep. J.C. Watts, a Republican that served in Congress, talking about the failed effort of Republicans to gain the black vote, which is also true, by reference, concerning the vote of latinos in Miami:

"I have often said one of the reasons more blacks don't support Republicans is because they don't trust the GOP establishment," Watts said. "I can, without fear of contradiction, assure you the Conventional Wisdom Caucus and the Status Quo Caucus and the same-old-tired-establishment consultants are running the GOP front-runners' campaigns -- and aiming to get no more than one-twelfth of the black vote."

Estamos trabajando para demostrarte en las proximas elecciones que estamos cansados de las mentiras de los McBush, quienes enganaron a la nacion y a la comunidad internacional para llevarnos a una guerra con Irak para satisfacer los intereses de las companias petroleras subrepticias formadas por Bush y Cheney, de cuyo esquema el heredero es John McCain, quien tambien tiene nexos con una compania petrolera cuyo principal es su mayor recaudador de fondos, aqui en la Florida, la cual recientemente comenzo a ser investigada por el congreso, en relacion a una operacion de transporte de petroleo al ejercito a travez de jordania, contrato conseguido sin licitacion mediante una carta de salvoconducto obtenida con uno de los socios, un miembro de la familia real Jordana. (Chupate esa en lo que mondo la otra).

Are you serious? flip flopping is gonna be where the attacks on Obama will come from? McCain flip flopped on torture, flip flopped on being good or bad for the economy, he's switched his position on roe vs.Wade, switched on tax cuts by Bush, switched on the religious right.

Obama may not have as long a record on issues, but McCain has a record of switching to appease conservatives. It's as simple as this. where does he stand on the Confederate flag? Depends on where he's speaking.

Richard Charman, can you tell me how many latino Congressmen in the area of THE Herald are Democrats? What has this Democratic Congress done for us? I think the Republicans are trusted by the people here as much as the democrats. As an Independent voter what I would like to know is where Sen Obama stands in any issue. That you don't mention anywhere. So you missed the point of my writing.
