BushToday the U.S. Senate voted 63-34 to make English the national language of the United States.

Meanwhile in Yuma, Arizona, President Bush made a personal inspection of the border and spoke to the press about his version of comprehensive immigration reform.

What bothered me about the Yuma speech was that our own President, used the word “ain’t” on national television and no one has said anything about it.

I find it ironic that on the day the Senate votes to uphold English as the language of the land, the nation’s leader proved yet again that he can’t even speak correct English.

What the President meant to say:

In other words, people have been here legally, somebody who pays their dues, pays their taxes, pays a fine, proven to be a good citizen, they get at the end of the line. Someone said, well, that’s amnesty — that’s not amnesty. Amnesty is automatic citizenship. This is a rational way to deal with people who are God-fearing, decent people, and respect their dignity at the same time.
