More On Obama’s Language Requirement

Friday, July 11, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

John Hinderaker points out that Obama’s “Teach your children Spanish” diktat revealed more than his contempt for ordinary Americans:

One thought, though: isn’t this one more example of how out of touch Obama is? The ugly American abroad is a stereotype from the 1950s and 1960s. Does Obama really not know that for the last several decades, every school district in America has been relentlessly pushing the study of foreign languages? Is he unaware that it is now commonplace for American high school students to travel abroad in school groups to practice their German, French, Spanish, Japanese, and so on?
