I happen to speak fairly fluent Spanish, so I guess I don't need to be "embarrassed" by Senator Obama's standards. Ralph speaks Hebrew, so he's safe too.
(HT: Hugh Hewitt.) Obama's comment strikes me as the kind of offhand remark my liberal friends would make over lunch, among elite company. It is also typical of the lightweight thinking Obama often displays. (Another example: Saying he'd call in the Joint Chiefs of Staff for consultations on Iraq strategy, when someone who wants to be Commander in Chief should know it is the Commander of CENTCOM he would be consulting with.)
This guy will be hard to take for eight years. Let's hope that is not necessary.
