Tancredo wins one: No-show is victor at debate
NH Union Leader
ALL BUT ONE Republican candidate for President participated in a debate in Miami on Sunday. Unfortunately for the vast majority of Americans, the debate was entirely incomprehensible -- because it was entirely in Spanish.
Univision, which sponsored and broadcast the debate, did not air the questions or the candidates' answers in English. So the candidates were left addressing only people fluent in Spanish.
The one candidate who did not show up, Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, had the right idea. He boycotted the Spanish-only debate, saying that naturalized citizens must by law speak English. So, to whom were the candidates speaking Sunday night? It would seem that there is one answer: illegal immigrants.
