Former Border State Governor, Fluent in Spanish?

From Holden:

Little Scottie sez no (which means the same thing in both languages).

The White House on Thursday disputed an account of President George W. Bush singing the U.S. national anthem in Spanish during the 2000 presidential campaign, saying his Spanish is not that good.


White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the assertion did not ring true to him because, “The president speaks Spanish, but not that well.”

“I’m saying that not only was that suggestion absurd, but that he couldn’t possibly sing the national anthem in Spanish. He’s not that good with his Spanish,” McClellan said.

UPDATE: Here’s Chimpy schmoozing with the president of Uruguay in Spanish today.
