'What's Spanish for Hypocrite?'
Then these immigrants further insist that their children be educated in the parental language in public schools--at taxpayer expense of course. Oh, they add, be sure these public institutions have personnel who speak our language--not the language of America--or we'll sue for discrimination.
Pandering to the Hispanic vote, Senator Back Obama seems to agree.
So naturally when speaking to the league of United Latin American citizens,, "Sí, se puede!" Obama, who doesn't speak Spanish, said as he arrived on stage.
"I don't understand when people are going around worrying about, we need to have English only. They want to pass a law, we just, we want English only," Obama told supporters in Powder Springs, Georgia on Tuesday. "Now, I agree that immigrants should learn English, I agree with this. But understand this, instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English, they'll learn English, you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish."
Translation: I don't speak Spanish but I want your vote which is why I managed to quickly memorize a few meaningless syllables of Spanish so Hispanics will vote for me. This ploy certainly worked for him when he grabbed the Hispanic vote in his successful Illinois senatorial campaign a few years ago. And certainly his children and wife, whom he shamelessly exploited a few days ago for the kiddie and parent vote probably do not speak Spanish.
After all, between the difficulties he and his wife have paying their controversial mortgage on their half million dollar combined income they probably don't have any discretionary income for these vital lessons.
