    Obomber is out of touch with the American people and American education.

    Illegal Immigration ALIPAC - Voters Reject Obama's call for Bilingualism
    Barack Obama said yesterday that “instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English,” Americans “need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.” A national telephone survey conducted last month by Rasmussen Reports found that U.S. voters overwhelmingly disagree with the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

    Eighty-three percent (83%) place a higher priority on encouraging immigrants to speak English as their primary language. Just 13% take the opposite view and say it is more important for Americans to learn other languages.

    Obomber thinks 30 million criminal illegals he will protect should not have to learn English.
    He thinks the law-abiding taxpayers should conform to criminals.

    This guy is a joke!

    I think what Obama meant is that other nations have children that speak multiple languages such as two languages or even three in some. He is calling for us to keep up with other nations in teaching our kids how to be multi-lingual. It sounds like the article might have been taken out of context. :eusa_whistle:

    how can you take these words out of context.
    “instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English,”
    "Americans need to make sure your child can speak Spanish.”

    Immigration Watchdog » Obama Says Don’t Worry About Immigrants Speaking English, Your Kids Need To Learn Spanish

    A video of the man him self actually saying it, is available at that link. Take that out of your context pipe and puff on it!

    I watched the video and it proves exactly what I had said. He says it is embarrasing that we cannot speak more than one language. He is RIGHT! You completely took that out of context in your post!

    Here's what Obama actually said, in context:


    What the voters rejected was the words out of context, not Obama. McCain supporters might wish that the voters were rejecting Obama, but that doesn't seem to be the case currently.

    I must say that, as an American who speaks more than one language and who has travelled abroad, I share Obama's embarrassment.

    The voters also rejected the McCain/Kennedy amnesty bill, BTW, just in case anyone wants to bring up the issue of illegal immigration.

    Obama is out of step with American voters on that issue, to be sure, and McCain is out of step as well.
