Palin To Immigrants: When You're Here, 'Let's Speak American'

Why CNN.... why?

It looks like MSNBC isn't the only network in a race to the bottom to become Fox-lite. I would love to know why in the world Jake Tapper's producers decided giving Sarah Palin fifteen minutes to spew incoherent word-salad on this Sunday's State of the Union was a good idea, but that's exactly what the viewers were "treated" to this Sunday morning.

The Republican party may regret the decision, because she didn't do them any favors with moments like this one. Here she is weighing in on Bush speaking Spanish and helping the GOP with their Hispanic outreach program: Palin praises Bush for being bilingual, but says English is 'unifying aspect' of America:

Former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is praising Jeb Bush for being bilingual -- but she would prefer people in this country "speak American."

"It's a benefit of Bush to be able to be so fluent, because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population building America, and that's a great connection he has with them," Palin told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union." "On the other hand, I think we can send a message and say, 'You want to be in America, A, you'd better be here legally or you're out of here. B, when you're here, let's speak American. ... Let's speak English, and that's a kind of a unifying aspect of the nation is the language that is understood by all."


Palin also disagreed with a recent statement by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who said last week that the Republican Party "often appears cold and unwelcoming to minorities."

"I can't think of any Republican that I know who would have that in their heart," Palin said. "(The Republican Party) is the party that would wish to bring people in together, standing together, putting America first, even in terms of the culture, accepting people's differences and the diverse views and everything else, because we have common sense driving our party," she said.
