The Operation Fast and Furious scandal may hurt President Barack Obamas re-election chances with Hispanic voters in November, conservative group American Future Fund thinks.
On Monday, American Future Fund (AFF) released two new Spanish-language political ads Confienza and Cuentas that the group says will run on television and radio in Albuquerque, N.M.; Raleigh, N.C.; Washington; Las Vegas and Denver.
December 2010, an anchor reads in the television ad, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry is gunned down along the Arizona-Mexico border.
Under Fast and Furious, President Obamas Justice Department puts thousands of weapons in the hands of dangerous drug cartels, the anchor continues. More Than 1,700 guns lost. Many linked to violent crimes and killings, including Agent Terrys murder. Obama denies any accountability instead blaming others.
The ad quotes how Obama falsely told Univision earlier this month that Fast and Furious started under the George W. Bush administration. The Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration, Obama incorrectly told Univisions Jorge Ramos in an interview.
But an official report proves the program began under Obamas administration, the anchor continues. Why did President Obama make a false claim? The facts are clear. In November, hold President Obama accountable.

Will anyone pay attention?
This is a re-work of an AFF summer ad. But it won’t work. Sadly, most “Latinos” want Obama because they want more welfare and more amnesty, and he will deliver.
Good. Now they need to show this ad on ALL TV stations.
Fortunately the "Latino" vote isn't counted as a block like a state in the electoral college. Changing it from 80/20 to 70/30 is useful even if Obama still does win among them. Especially if it is done in a way which isn't seen as pandering to them and risking the votes of strong border conservatives.
Are they asking the right questions...
Univision Leaves Out Key Facts on Fast and Furious Cover-up
They are moving in the right direction. It was pretty good. They covered quite a bit that many others have not been willing to. They mentioned operation Castaway. They talked about Fast and Furious guns in Columbia. I have heard (and I hope it is true) that they have more coming.
