Romney releases Spanish-language ad

(CNN) - Mitt Romney's presidential campaign released a new Spanish-language television advertisement on Wednesday, targeting President Barack Obama on the issue of Hispanic unemployment.

The ad is titled "No Podemos Más," or "We No Longer Can."

"50% Of Graduates Cannot Find Work," a caption says, juxtaposed with video of Obama saying "yes we can" in Spanish.

"More Than 10% Hispanic Unemployment," the ad continued, according to a translation provided by the Romney campaign.

In July, unemployment among Hispanic adults was 10.3%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said, while the overall nationwide unemployment rate was at 8.3%.

The ad asks, "Can we allow for Democrats to continue fooling us?"

Romney's campaign did not say where the ad would run, or how much was being spent to run it.

    I think the news about the program to allow the Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals starting up today is going to influence Spanish speakers a lot more than a Spanish Language ad by Romney, who would like to send them all back to his father's former homeland. President Obama is giving them a chance, Governor Romney is giving them the boot.

    That is all well and good, but is he going to do for that community? I am sure that there are different aspects to the Spanish and Spanglish speaking communities.
