Newt on Mitt: He speaks French

Newt Gingrich is out with a new online video attacking Mitt Romney, his rival for the Republican presidential nomination. It accuses Romney of (horrors!) speaking French.

The video tries to position Romney as similar in may ways to Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, straining to find places where their political ideologies overlap. Then it ends with this kicker: “Just like John Kerry, he speaks French, too.”

The video, called “The French Connection,” was released January 12 on Gingrich’s YouTube channel.

Never mind how much French Romney actually knows (I didn’t bother to research it). Republicans ought to be proud, not ashamed, of a candidate who knows even a little bit of a foreign language. But the “he looks French” strategy seemed to work the last time somebody tried it, when Bush defeated Kerry, so Newt’s trying it again.
