George W. Bush, earlier this week:
” “I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English, and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English.”
It turns out that candidate Bush used to sing the anthem in Spanish himself during campaign appearances in 1999, and, as President, had Jon Secada sing the National Anthem in English and Spanish at his first Inaugural ceremony.
Say it with me now:
Let’s see if we can get the approval ratings down into the 20s by the time the midterm elections come around, shall we?
