    Santorum: English must be adopted by Puerto Rico

    Santorum: English must be adopted by Puerto Rico

    Uh oh, looks like Rick's making up laws. Unless I missed the part of the Constitution where it set forth speaking English as a requirement for statehood.

    Absolutely agree, a misspeak that occurred several years ago certainly excuses the ignorance of constitutional law by a candidate who claims himself as a strict constitutionalist. Why do so many find it difficult to call a spade a spade?

    Man, it seems like I have been wanting to adopt English forever, but I am still stuck on the effing waiting list.

    We need to stick to the failure that is Obama administration policy, and stop with the social agenda stuff that liberals will pick apart and misrepresent.

    Misrepresent!

    Aside from the fact that he was wrong on the facts, it was a dumbass thing to say from a strategic perspective. It's going to cost him in PR, and if by some miracle he wins the nomination, it will cost him in Flrorida which is home to over a million Puerto Ricans.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    but it might win him brownie points among the monolingual crowd who will equate Spanish with illegal aliens and come back with something about how real Americans speak English and only English, and expect the rest of the world to speak it too.

    Yes misrepresent...It is a relatively easy term...I am sure you know it, liberals are masters at employing it....

    I don't think that Santorum helps himself when he gaffs as with any politician, it really depends more on how much the liberal media makes of it....That is why gaffs by Obama, Biden, and demo's are rarely seen if only in fleeting spots, while republicans suffer peering investigative spots asking the burning question, why? what did he mean? etc....pfft....It really is an old playbook, and worn out.

    Unfortunately for Santorum he can't unring that bell. The million plus Puerto Ricans in Florida aren't going to forget it. No one else really cares.
