Anthem should be sung in any language....

President Bush is a hypocrite according to the latest research. Dubya says the national anthem should only be sung in English, but he was apparently singing a different tune during his first run for President and at his inaugural festivities. On the campaign trail in 1999, Bush would often sing along as the national anthem was sung in Spanish during stops in Hispanic communities, GOP scholar Kevin Phillips wrote in his book “American Dynasty.”
After Bush was elected, Cuban exile and pop vocalist Jon Secada also sang the “The Star-Spangled Banner” in both English and Spanish at the 2001 opening ceremony of the presidential inaugural, according to media reports at the time.The White House had no immediate comment,Nonetheless, Bush still appeared to have amnesia when he suggested last week that the “The Star-Spangled Banner” is an English-only tune.
