Senators Flip Flop on English

You can't turn your back on these Senators for a moment..... they have managed to snatch public relations defeat from the jaws of victory! They amended yesterday's "English is our national language" amendment to English is the "common and unifying language" of the United States.

What's that? Isn't English our national language? Whose toes are you trying to avoid?

All Democrats voted for that cop-out language, as well as fourteen Republicans.... here's the GOP list:

Sam Brownback, Lincoln Chafee, Norm Coleman, Susan Collins, Mike DeWine, Pete Domenici, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Hagel, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Olympia Snowe, Arlen Specter, George Voinovich, John Warner.

McCain, you've regained your title as "Panderer in Chief." Must be a lot of Hispanic votes in Arizona.

The Senate must still meet with the House to work out the exact immigration reform bill..... so there is still hope they won't deny us our language heritage. English is our national language. Say so in this legislation... proudly.
