Merci Beaucoup, Barack

You may note the latest addition to 'Today's videos', "Obama wants you--to speak Spanish". While we know that the liberals will say his statement was taken out of context (they are expert judges of that having refined the process for years), the fact is quite evident as to what Barack Hussein Obama thinks and he's not much worried about immigrants, legal or otherwise, learning to speak English. In fact, it's obvious from his statement that he doesn't really care whether English is our national language.

We liked Laura Ingraham's comments today on this topic:

"A DISGUSTING DISPLAY OF ELITISM: Barack Obama thinks you're stupid. At a townhall event yesterday in Powder Springs, Ga., Obama uttered the latest in a series of snide remarks about everyday Americans: "It's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is 'merci beaucoup!'" Amazingly, the audience rewarded this bit of America-bashing with hearty chuckles and applause.

If he keeps this up, voters are increasingly going to wonder why Obama's more comfortable ridiculing his own country than going after actual threats - like Iran. Who wants a president who looks down on them?

And maybe Obama should spend some time mastering the English language before the next time he preaches the glories of multilingualism. The punch line of his statement above: "and alls [sic] we's [sic] can say is 'merci beaucoup!'"

If you're looking for elitist attitudes, look in the mirror buddy. Ethnocentrism is about as elitist as you can get.
