Ad-rageous: Barack Obama Speaks Spanish

Barack Obama has a Spanish mensaje personal for Puerto Rico. Unbeknownst to the English speaking public, Obama is promising Puerto Ricans independence as soon as he becomes president. OK, just kidding! But, check out the ad, which I swear is not dubbed! Obama really can roll his Rs.

Puerto Rico will hold its Democratic primary on June 1. Bill Clinton has assured Puerto Ricans that this is their rare opportunity to influence US presidential politics. Whether or not the island territory, which does not vote in the general election, isn't too late to the primary game is up for debate. But either way, do you think this ad, which showcases Barack Obama's Spanish-speaking skills, will help him wrap this thing up?

Very impressive. If Fox thinks speaking Spanish will hurt him, we will see it on their shows. If Fox thinks it will help him, they won't mention it on their shows.

Ok Im a Texan that speaks Spanish .... haha But I live about five miles from Mexico, so I dont really have the deep Texan accent anymore. Obama is an intelligent guy who has lived in other countries. He surely understands the importance of pronunciation when it comes to credibility. I thought he spoke Spanish in the commercial considerably well. Obama is a master of diction, and the spoken word. Bush, on the other hand, does probably know more Spanish, but we all know speaking--in any language-- isn't his strongest point. And anyone who would not vote for a candidate who speaks another language is a complete moron!

I work with a Texan who speaks Spanish and it makes me laugh to hear he speak as well. I don't know what it is.

I give him credit, but I am still very entertained by his southern accent's influence on his spanish. I can't help but crack up when I hear it! I wish you could hear my version of it...;)

Hey, Obama's accent isn't bad at all! I bet this will help him...he doesn't come across as someone who's trying to impress people but really has no clue.

"I certainly don't consider people who speak English with an accent to be anything less than fluent because of their accent!" :highfive: Besides we don't know if Obama is fluent in Spanish or just practiced for this commercial. Come on Jill. I know you have it in you somewhere to give Bush a bit of credit. ;)

I didn't know Bush read and wrote Spanish fluently, but i guess if you were governor of Texas, you'd have to know some! His accent really is horrendous however. That's actually the one thing i find slightly endearing about him - his goofy spanish accent. There. i said one nice thing about the president. I'll stop now! ;)

Bush is fluent in Spanish - pronunciation has nothing to do with that. I certainly don't consider people who speak English with an accent to be anything less than fluent because of their accent! This is nothing less than smart politicking - I hate when people consider it "pandering" to address a specific group.

Jill, I'm pretty sure his pronunciation is a little rough, but he reads and writes it fluently.

Bush's spanish is pretty rough, from my memory. I will never forget hearing him call himself (spelled phonetically): "Hor-hey Doob-le-vey." (the recreation is one of my best Bush impressions). I think his southern accent trips up his spanish accent a little too much.

Wow. I didn't know Obama could speak Spanish. I always liked the fact that Bush speaks it. I think a bilingual president is a great thing, especially when it comes to foreign relations and the shifting demographics at home.

This could only hurt him with the er..."patriotic" crowd who like to tell anyone with an accent to "this is America, speak English or go home" but I doubt there is much to lose on that side of the spectrum. That is pretty cool though. His wife has weird teeth, I think that's why she always smiles w/her mouth closed. I kind of like her, she's not a pretty face who is there only for appearances (not directed at McCain's wife) - but I like the women to be fire crackers, I liked Hillary for the same reasons. I like a woman who can be married to the president of the most powerful country and can hold her own against him.

Not bad, not bad at all. On another note I just think it's totally F'd that on the one hand we tell Puerto Rico that they can't have independence but on the other hand tell them they can't have a vote either. Talk about being treated as a second class citizen.
lilkimbo lilkimbo 9 years
It's nice that he speaks Spanish, but this is nothing new. McCain has a Spanish language website (I'm guessing Obama and Clinton do, too). And serial, I'm pretty sure Bush did have Spanish ads. I know he speaks it fluently.
marcella marcella 9 years
that's freaking awesome! how can anyone not like obama? i totally agree with stephley that this ad shows his 'willing to use diplomacy'! he is very intelligent, handles himself with grace, and i think this ad was a very good move on his part. i like the fact that he has cast himself as the unifier in this race. as far as michelle obama, i have a high opinion of her as well. i don't think she's smug, i think she like any other wife trying to support her husband in this race. in my opinion, bill clinton's conduct as a spouse has been much more incendiary than michelle obama's conduct at every turn.

I have to wonder where these Spanish-speaking ads were in February and March? They definitely would've helped Obama in California, Texas and the Southwest. I really do hope Obama airs a few more of these ads in the general, especially since he'll need to shore up the Hispanic vote, which tended to go Hillary's way in the primaries. I recall Bush also cut a few Spanish ads during his run too.

good point Jillness, I didn't think of that. I know for me, nica, her "likeness" or whatever to Hillary is not even a factor for me. I don't see her as like Hillary at all.
nicachica nicachica 9 years
Jillness, i think the funny part about the controversy over Michelle Obama is that she really reminds people about Hillary when she first started out...spooky! Ohhhhh noooo, can't have a strong woman by a strong man's side! Uh ohhhh!
stephley stephley 9 years
I just think some people will think he's pandering and add it to the list of Obama cons that includes 'willing to use diplomacy.'
