White House in Disarray Over English Language Directive
Posted on May 19, 2006
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales claims that Bush has never supported making English the national language, but White House Press Secretary Tony Snow just said the opposite. (And the Senate just voted to make it so.)
Today Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said that President Bush ?has never supported making English the national language.? But earlier this morning, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said Bush supported efforts in the Senate to do just that:
As you know, there were actually a couple of amendments that came up yesterday, an Inhofe amendment and also a Salazar amendment. And what has come out of that is a description of English as the national language. And I think ? and we have supported both of these. ? And I think both of these amendments are consistent with that stated presidential desire.
