Barack Obama is embarrassed that Americans go to Europe, and that Europeans speak to us in English. Beyond fostering the "Ugly American" stereotype, Obama continues to show the contempt and elitism that typifies the modern liberal movement. They love America, they say. Just not the way we are now. They love the America we could be if we all lived their lives the way they want us to. I wonder if Paul Hodes shares his preferred candidate's embarrassment of the English language:

"Instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English — they'll learn English — you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish."

"You know, it's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe, and all we can say (is), 'Merci beaucoup.' "

Paul Hodes claims to be an independent voice for New Hampshire, yet he refuses to stand up to Nancy Pelosi, and he refuses to denounce these continued insults from Barack Obama. What will it take for Paul Hodes to stand up against his Democratic Party bosses?
