HMoffsuite: Enuf Bilingualism Already

HMoffsuite: Obama just named Calif. Rep Hilda Solis as his Secretary of Labor. Her acceptance speech was delivered with the normal thank you(s) to her family, etc. Then gave the speech in Spanish. I have a real problem with this bi-lingual stuff. This is America, if you live here, speak the language. Idaho, as I recall, is an official English speaking State. Good for us.

Question: Without resorting to name calling here, do you agree or disagree that people who live in America should speak English?
