Romney Spanish language ad links Chavez, Castro’s niece, Guevara to Obama
A new Romney Spanish-language television ad links President Obama to Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s niece, and Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, according to a report from The Miami Herald.
Airing in Miami, the Florida paper reports, the ad shows Chavez, Castro’s niece supporting Obama and notes a September incident in which the Environmental Protection Agency erroneously sent a staff-wide email celebrating Hispanic Heritage month with a picture of the Guevera.
The television ad targets Cuban voters in the Miami area.

Narrator: And to top it off, Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency sent emails for Hispanic Heritage month with a photo of Che Guevara.
Chavez: “If Obama were from Barlovento (a Venezuelan town), he’d vote for Chávez.”
