Does President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration Have Anything To Do With Spanish?
(PRWEB) January 20, 2013
Some believe that part of President Obama’s win came after wooing the Spanish vote. Back in 2008, President Obama began to reach out to Hispanics as he said, campaigning to English speakers, “You need to make sure your child can speak Spanish,” and that, “we should have every child speaking more than one language.”
Next, in 2012, President Obama not only outspent Mitt Romney reaching out to Hispanic voters, he had more widely accepted policies on immigration. He also took the time to practice Spanish, and with a surprisingly good Spanish accent, campaigned directly to Hispanics.
It comes as no surprise that President Obama did so well among Hispanic voters and won a second term.
“We’re honored to have a President who puts such an emphasis on language learning and strives to bridge communication gaps among the citizens of our country and our world,” remarked Dave Clark, CEO of LearnALanguage.com.
