Union targets Mitt Romney in Spanish-language Florida ad

The Service Employees International Union is teaming up with the pro-Obama SuperPAC Priorities USA for a new $4-million TV and radio ad campaign in Florida, Colorado and Nevada through the summer.

“Mitt Romney shows his true colors and what his intentions are,” said healthcare worker and SEIU Local 1199 member Raphael Suarez from Kissimmee, Florida. “Mitt Romney only cares about corporations and their profits. I'm proud to voluntarily contribute to COPE, our PAC fund, to ensure that Romney's record on the economy, immigration and workers gets out to the community so Hispanics can make informed decisions about what's at stake for working families.”

"Our members want to make sure that people know the truth and are informed on the facts," said Monica Russo, SEIU Florida president. "Mitt Romney's own words show the facts about how he feels about our communities."

Here's the script in English:
(text on screen) MITT ROMNEY IN HIS OWN WORDS.
ROMNEY: You can focus on the very poor, that’s not my focus
VOTER 1 FEMALE: What about us? He’s not thinking about us.
VOTER 2 MALE: It’s easy for him to say that since he doesn’t have the same necessities as us.
VOTER 1 FEMALE: He is… just thinking about those that have made money already.
(text on screen) MITT ROMNEY MADE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS LEAVING
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT WORK.
ROMNEY: I’ll also tell my story: I’m also unemployed.
VOTER 2 MALE: When you are really out of work… you are worried, you don’t want to laugh or make fun of anybody.
VOTER 1 FEMALE: I feel that he should not be the person that leads this country.

One wonders how much of the pension money SEIU members have and--for that matter--how much of the SEIU's own money is invested in those big bad profitable corporations that SEIU and their fellow unions, especially the public employee unions, spend so much time demonizing.

Maybe the press ought to tell us about that, so ordinary folks can see how consistent the unions' propaganda is with their own investment actions.

Do the union bosses truly walk the walk ... or just talk the talk?

OBAMA SPENT THREE YEARS TRYING TO DIVIDE OUR POPULATION. IMPOSING DIFFERENT SOCIALIST CONCEPTS OUR SOCIETY DO NOT ACCEPT. APPARENTLY, HE THINKS AMERICANS ARE STUPIDS AND USING,CONFUSING AND MANIPULATING OUR YOUNGEST, COULD HAVE FOUR MORE YEARS.
WE NEED ANOTHER PERSON WHO RESPECT OUR NATIONALS, WE NEED LIBERTY AND FREEDOM TO WORK, TO INVEST, TO DO WHATEVER WE WANT WITHOUT IMPOSITIONS FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
IN OUR SOCIETY,GOVERNMENT MOST BE MINIMINIZED, OBAMA WANTS BIGGEST. HE WANTS POWER TO CONTROL INDIVIDUALS, AND RELIGIONS RIGHTS.
AFTER FOUR YEAR, WHAT WE HAVE?
ARE WE BETTER THAN BEFORE? I DO NOT THINK SO.
LET OUR PEOPLE TO CREATE THEIR OWN WEALTH WITHOUT CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT.
PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS NO IDEA TO DIRECT OUR COUNTRY, AND IT IS NOT PROPER HE TRY TO IMPOSE HIS CONTROL FOUR MORE YEAR.
JUST ANALIZE HIS POLITICAL AD: ALWAYS TRYING TO IMPOSE A CONFRONTATION BETWEEN RICH AND POOR PEOPLE, CONFUSING
A GREAT PART OF OUR CITIZEN.
OBAMA TIME IS ENOUGH!!
NECESSARILY, WE NEED A CHANGE. SOMEONE WITH BUSINESS VISION, SOMEONE WHO KNOW HOW MAKE MONEY WITH KNOWLEDGE AND FREEDOM.
WE DO NOT NEED A PRESIDENT ANTAGONIZING OUR PEOPLE.
