(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)THANK YOU, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, I APOLOGIZE.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO GET PASTYOUR CHANTING AM I JUST

THOUGHT I COULD SNEAK PASTTHE CASTLEGATES OF YOUR LOVE

BUT YOU STOPPED ME, THANKYOU. FOLKS, IF YOU ARE ONE

OF THE MILLIONS OF AMERICANSOBSESSED WITH KNOWING WHAT

DAY IT IS, THEN YOU KNOWTHAT TODAY IS CINCO DE MAYO.

WHICH THIS YEAR IS LANDINGON THE 5th OF MAY.

(LAUGHTER)NOW UNFORTUNATELY, ONE

PERSON IS MAKING A CINCODEMOCKERY OF AMERICAN

VALUES.

CASA MINORITY LEADER NANCYPELOSI, IN HONOR OF THIS

YEAR'S CINCO DE MAYO SHERELEASED A STATEMENT SAYING

QUOTE THERE IS NO BETTER WAYTO ACKNOWLEDGE THE IMPORTANT

CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR COUNTRYOF AMERICA'S LATINO

COMMUNITY THAN BY ENACTINGCOMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

OH, THAT IS RIDICULOUS.

WE ALREADY DO SO MUCH ONCINCO DE MAYO TO ACKNOWLEDGE

THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS.

WE DRINK NOT UNO BUT DOSEQUIS.

AND MANY AMERICANS AREEATING TACOS TODAY, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS NOT TUESDAY.

(LAUGHTER)AND FRANKLY, LATINOS SHOULD

BE DEEPLY INSULTED THATPELOSI LUMPED ALL OF YOU

TOGETHER UNDER A MEXICANHOLIDAY.

THAT'S WHAT THE PUERTO RICANDAY PARADE IS FOR.

(LAUGHTER)BUT PELOSI REALLY STEPPED IN

IT WHEN SHE SAID THE TIME ISNOW FOR HOUSE REPUBLICANS TO

EMULATE THE BRAVERYDEMONSTRATED IN THE BATTLE

OF PUEBLA.

EXCUSE ME?

THE BRAVERY OF THE BATTLE OFPUEBLA?

ONLY AMERICAN BATTLES CAN BEBRAVE, MADAME.

MAY I REMIND YOU THE BATTLEWAS BETWEEN THE MEXICANS AND

THE FRENCH.

WHO EXACTLY ARE YOU ROOTINGFOR IN THAT FIGHT, NANCY?

MEXICAN COMMANDER IGNACIOZARAGOZA OR FRENCH COUNT

CHARLES LORENCEZ? DOESN'TMATTER BECAUSE ULTIMATELY

THE FRENCH CAME BACK ANDCRUSHED THE MEXICANS LIKE

GUACAMOLE IN THE SECONDBATTLE INSTALLING ARCHDUKE

MAXIMILLIAN AS EMPEROR OFMEXICO WHO EVIDENTLY

NARROWLY ESCAPED A CANNONSHOT TO THE BEARD.

IF NANCY PELOSI REALLYWANTED REPUBLICANS TO GET

BEHIND IMMIGRATION REFORMSHE SHOULD HAVE INVOKED AN

AMERICAN BATTLE WITH MEXICOLIKE THE ALAMO.

I'M PRETTY SURE WE WON THATONE, OTHERWISE WHY WOULD WE

KEEP REMEMBERING IT.
