Cuban Spanish and Mexican Spanish


Enough of this little gotcha on how George "I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English" Bush had Jon Secada sing the national anthem in Spanish during his first inaugural's "Celebrating America's Spirit Together" event in 2001.

Secada is Cuban. Cubans can sing the anthem in Spanish if they want, just like they can wash up in Florida and be welcomed by the State Department, rather than rounded up by immigration. Mexicans, on the hand, cannot. Respect the law people.

As for reports that Bush himself sang the anthem in Spanish while campaigning for governor in Texas in 1999, I ask you which is more likely, that George Bush forgot the words and was just mumbling along and it kinda sounded Spanish, or that George Bush knows an entire other language besides English?

Don't let the MSM confuse you.
