Video- Newt 2012 Releases New Florida TV Ad: "What Kind of Man?"

By Susan Duclos

Via email we knew it was coming, but waited until the actual ad was released before reporting on it. The ad is called "What Kind of Man?", and it references the misleading ads, distortion and lies that were covered here at Wake up America last night and this morning in detail, here, here, and here. (Links in order from most recent to oldest.)

Video below:

Using the text I received from the Gingrich campaign because it provides the source links of the criticisms made in the ad itself.

Governor Huckabee: "If a man's dishonest to get a job, he'll be dishonest on the job." (Source)

Narrator: What kind of man would mislead, distort, and deceive just to win an election?

This man would. Mitt Romney. Romney said he has always voted Republican when he had the opportunity.

But in the 1992 Massachusetts Primary, Romney had the chance to vote for George H.W. Bush or Pat Buchanan, but he voted for a liberal Democrat instead. (Source)

Romney said his investments in Fannie and Freddie were in a blind trust.

But as reported in the National Journal, Romney earned tens of thousands of dollars from investments NOT in a blind trust. (Source)

Romney denied seeing a false ad his campaign used to attack Newt Gingrich. But Romney's own campaign paid for the ad...and Romney's own voice is on the ad approving the content. (Source)

If we can't trust what Mitt Romney says about his own record, how can we trust him on anything?

Florida has seen a massive seesawing of support that favored Romney heavily, then swung to heavily favoring Gingrich, then back again toward Romney, all in less than a week, showing that four days before the Florida primaries next Tuesday, it is not out of the realm of possibility to see another two or three swings before next Tuesday's primaries.

Hispanics make up over 13 percent of Florida's registered voters and both campaigns have released open letters aimed at the opposing candidate by Hispanic leaders over recent days.

Romney released an open letter to Gingrich from Hispanic leaders criticizing an ad the Gingrich campaign had running in Florida, calling Romney anti-immigrant, urging Gingrich to take the ad down, which he then had removed from the airwaves.

Gingrich released an open letter to Romney from Hispanic leaders explaining why they could not support Romney and listing the reasons they have decided to support Gingrich.

(Both letters in full with signers, found at an earlier WuA post, HERE.)

The Florida primaries are to be held on Tuesday, January 31, 2012.
