Hispanically Speaking, Bush's English Ain't Two Haught. Sew Watt?
By John W. Lillpop
In the midst of the inflamed rhetoric swirling around illegal immigration last summer, President Bush tried to cool things off by calling for immigrants to learn English as part and parcel of becoming American, and to enhance their chances of living the American Dream.
While Bush's call for immigrants to learn English was a good thing, it was also amusing: One can only hope that impressionable illegal aliens do not use our president as a model for English articulation.
Although Bush is perhaps the worstest* communicator in our history, he is, in fact, trilingual, and proficient in:
Texan. Otherwise known as pidgin English with a drawl.
Ultimately, Bush's Spanish-Mexican language skills may benefit him if, God forbid, his amnesty giveaway becomes law.
Indeed, if America is bushwhacked on immigration again, illegal aliens from Mexico will soon outnumber U.S. citizens--on the American side on the border.
At that happy day, at least Bush will be able to remind the millions of squatters that he is so fond of that they are a decent, good-hearted, hard-working majority.
Bush will be able to deliver his message in Spanish-Mexican--or depending on the education level of his audience, Mexican Spanish!
America will thus die, Hispanically Speaking.
