National Anthem "Whoops!" for Prez

Last week, President Bush declared,"I think people who want to be citizens of this country ought to learn English," in a disgusted reaction to the US National Anthem being sung in Spanish.

I would like to know what all the hubbub is about when the White House website itself is translated in Spanish?

Curiously, the Library of Congress website has the Spanish version of the Star Spangled Banner, written in 1919!

Even more amazing, The National Anthem Project (TNAP) website, chaired by the Honorable First Lady Laura Bush (who has selflessly indeed done so much for education), offers the Star Spangled Banner set to Mexican mariachi music.

How about that?
