Sam Levin recently covered a campaign appearance by Craig Romney, youngest son of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney -- and a Spanish speaker, which explains why he's been targeting Hispanic voters at recent events. But one of our readers doesn't like the implication that his linguistic skills alone will sway Latinos.

Anita Bañuelos writes:

Just because he can speak Spanish doesn't mean he understand the Latino Culture. We are not simple minded and to believe for one second that speaking Spanish would get his daddy votes. I take that as an insult.
