Obama Mocks Unilingual American Idiots -- Only

The spectacle of Obama and his fans enjoying their presumed superiority over the rest of us benighted Americans--the most telling feature of the video is the "knowing" laughs Obama elicits from his audience--is not pretty.
One thought, though: isn't this one more example of how out of touch Obama is? The ugly American abroad is a stereotype from the 1950s and 1960s. Does Obama really not know that for the last several decades, every school district in America has been relentlessly pushing the study of foreign languages? Is he unaware that it is now commonplace for American high school students to travel abroad in school groups to practice their German, French, Spanish, Japanese, and so on?
