The Obama campaign released a new set of Spanish language television ads today that end with the president giving his standard “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” spiel en español. While his accent is not perfect, his Spanish is far better than Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s.
President Obama’s new Spanish ads focus on the president’s record on jobs and healthcare and will air in Nevada, Colorado and Florida. According to the Obama campaign, they are “the third in a series of Spanish language television and radio ads highlighting the President’s record on issues of particular importance to the Hispanic community.”
Watch one of President Obama’s new Spanish-languages ads below. You can hear the president speaking Spanish about 26 seconds into the commercial.
