Soft on terrorists, tough on allies

How could anyone now doubt what a complete frigging idiot George W. Bush is! I suspect that voter's remorse is hitting pretty hard right now. Where are the Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth" when you really need them?

I'm the boss around here. I know what's good for you. Now stop your complaining and eat your peas. Bush shit-for-brains:

I can understand why some in Congress have raised questions about whether or not our country will be less secure as a result of this transaction. But they need to know that our government has looked at this issue and looked at it carefully.

Who really trusts the most secretive and dishonest administration in U.S. history, and a president with ties to the oil fiefs of the Saudi world, to handle our security?
[Dubai Ports World] said it won approval from a secretive U.S. government panel that considers security risks of foreign companies buying or investing in American industry.

Hey George -- before you step in front of the cameras and make a complete fool of yourself, how about you look into the matter yourself and actually speak to people's concerns rather than making shit up as you go? How about you just do your effing job and stay on top of things where the safety of American citizens is concerned -- or at the very least, where your sanity might be brought into question?
President Bush was unaware of the pending sale of shipping operations at six major U.S. seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates until the deal already had been approved by his administration, the White House said Wednesday.

The United Arab Emirates is what?
"A country that plays by the rules and has got a good track record."

"A country that's an ally in the war on terror."

Really?
The UAE, a loose federation of seven emirates on the Saudi peninsula, was an important operational and financial base for the hijackers who carried out the attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the FBI concluded.

No, we don't discriminate against German or Japanese companies because Germany and Japan were enemies in WWII -- but the current governments of Germany and Japan renounce the crimes of aggression by previous governments.

Like most people, I'm willing to listen to reason, and I'm willing to hear the argument for a UAE company running port operations in the United States. On first blush, I don't like the idea. In fact, I don't like the idea of any foreign company running port operations. Nevertheless, if monkey boy wants to make the case to take a break from the global "war on terrah" to defend a company based in a country that harbored and helped finance the terrorists that attacked us, and that once recognized the Taliban as the legitimate ruler of Afghanistan, I'd love to hear his argument.

I wonder if, after the French and German refusal to support the Iraq invasion, the Bush administration would have allowed companies from those countries to run ports here in the United States. I doubt it, since they weren't, in fact, invited to bid on contracts in Iraq.

Dubya sez that his administration will continue talks with Congress so that "people understand the logic of this decision."

Umm. Okay. I'm waiting.
