American values

Here's a good one: Bush says immigrants should learn American values.

Yes, I'm not kidding. I'm not sure exactly what values he's talking about, though.

Could it be the right to petition the government for redress of grievances?

Or the idea that no matter how modest your beginnings, if you work hard you can become successful?

Or the idea that defending your country is not just a duty, it's a sacred honor?

Or maybe the "right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures"?

Or maybe freedom of religion?

I guess he's right: some people have a lot to learn.
