    Good for Tom Tancredo.

    Tancredo: GOP Candidates 'Pandering' At Spanish-Language Debate

    DENVER -- Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo is boycotting a Spanish-language debate with his fellow GOP presidential candidates in Miami on Sunday, saying it has no place in presidential race and accusing his rivals of "pandering."

    "It is the law that to become a naturalized citizen of this country you must have knowledge and understanding of English, including a basic ability to read, write, and speak the language," Tancredo said in a release Friday. "So what may I ask are our presidential candidates doing participating in a Spanish speaking debate?"

    Tancredo has made hard-line immigration issues the hallmark of his long shot presidential campaign in much the same way it has branded his five terms in the House. The Congressman's two campaign ads focused on border security and threats ranging from terrorist to gangs -- using bloody images to underscore the point in both cases.


    Tancredo said he will not join the other candidates at the Univision Republican debate at the University of Miami to drive home the idea that the nation needs a common language.

    "Bilingualism is a great asset for any individual, but it has perilous consequences for a nation," Tancredo said. "As such, a Spanish debate has no place in a presidential campaign."

    Good for him, it's about time somebody said it, now watch the politically correct sh!t heads crucify him.

    It has gotten so bad that now when I call a company regarding an appliance ect, I let the phone ring then when the all crap starts about press one, press two I just sit and wait, soon the recording will say "please stay on the line to speak to a rep" when I finally get a human being if they sound like they are South Mullacans I simply say, "may I please talk with somebody that speaks English" they will immediately say "one'a momento" an English speaking human will then take your call, don't feel as though your degrading these people by doing this, they now are all set up for it, it has become such a problem that they now have English speaking people just waiting for people like me to come along.

    If things keep going the way they are we will become a nation of politically correct fools, nobody will be able talk to each other, segregation will return, big time, we will be waving our arms and trying to talk with our hands.

    We have to get rid of political correctness and far left liberalism and get back to basic common sense.

    Us white men whose first language is English can't help it the whole country's first language is English that is what we were taught in school, thats what our parents spoke and taught us.

    China's first language is "Chinese" if a whole bunch of Greeks move to China will they want the Chinese to start speaking Greek because they don't want to learn Chinese.

    We are turning into a country of screwballs

    "what did he say"?
    "I don't know" :confused:
