Latest attack on Romney: he speaks French!

Watch out there's a moderate about, ad comparing GOP frontrunner to John Kerry warns.

By Teresa Goncalves

Watch out everyone, Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney has been fooling us all. Over the last few weeks he has been carefully masquerading as a conservative Republican candidate but new information has revealed that he is actually a moderate: he speaks French!

Newt Gingrich’s campaign team have left Romney’s business ethics behind and moved onto a different angle, airing a television ad revealing the unspeakable… “Mitt Romney is a moderate”.

Moreover, the similiarties between Romney and one time Democrat presidential hopeful John Kerry are uncanny. Not only have the two held offices in Massachusetts, they both have hair that everyone likes to comment on.

But the most striking similarity of all is that Romney speaks French, just like the former senator!
