Newt hits Mitt: ‘And just like John Kerry — he speaks French, too’

In his latest web ad, “The French Connection,” Newt Gingrich compares Mitt Romney to his fellow Bay Staters who have recently run for president. In this case, that includes showing Michael Dukakis in a tank — and John Kerry windsurfing.

The video also hits Romney for saying he’s not trying to return to “Reagan-Bush,” for voting for a “liberal Democrat” instead of President George H.W. Bush, and for opposing The Contract With America.

But the best line is …”And just like John Kerry — he speaks French, too.”

Update: TheDC’s Alex Pappas notes this “may not be Gingrich’s best line of attack, considering the former professor has a doctorate in European history from Tulane University.”
