Nothing wrong with being bilingual, or multilingual. Get smart(er)!
But there’s nothing sadder than a pol, usually but not always a Democrat, who is cramming Spanish lessons so he can be “authentic” in front of certain audience. “Authentic” means real. This is faking it all the way, Jose.
Not to say it won’t work, because no one ever went broke underestimating voters.
It is sad for two reasons: one, imagine a liberal who tried to learn how to fire a gun. Oh wait, that happened. It was sad.
Two, it suggests that NOT knowing Spanish is a deficiency, instead of the progress of assimilation.
Assuming you actually think assimilation IS progress…
