Romney's Poor Choice of Words

Former Gov Mitt Romney (R-MA) bungled a speech before Cuban Americans as he was campaigning for President in Miami.

The audience chuckled when he mangled the Spanish names of local politicians -- but he was greeted with groans as he declared: "Patria o muerte, venceremos!"

That's Fidel Castro's battle cry. He's been ending his speeches with that line for decades. In English, it means: "Fatherland or death, we shall overcome."

First, we find out Rudy Giuliani's law firm lobbied for Hugo Chavez. Now we have Mitt Romney quoting Fidel Castro on the campaign trail.

Remember the 1980s -- when conservatives hated communists? (MiamiHerald)

Speaking of bungling names, you bungle Romney's by spelling it "Romeny" in your headline. Hmmm. Isn't it nice to know that it can happen to anyone?
