If true, the democrats will erect a statue of Bush for making them the tough on security party.

No he won't. Bush won't veto anything.

Ok, I know sometimes something seems worse than it actually is, and I haven't been following this story. So do I understand correctly that President Bush supports the purchase of facilities at six of our major ports by UAE companies?

Bush just sounded the death knel for this deal. He can't veto things that happen at the state level.

It was foolish of him to make such a statement. Even if he ultimately wins, which I doubt, he will lose significant political face over this.

If there is, George Bush feels no need to explain it, apparently.

I am a Bush bot, I guess. But, I hope they go ahead and get that 2/3 vote necessary to override the veto.

Not a surprise. Bush is digging in to fight the cowardly cover their ass politicians and the MSM trying to turn the deal into something that it's not.

Well, I used to think that the main difference between Democrats and Republicans was the parts of the Constitution they chose to bang upon.

But I think we can also now say that they are also differentiated by what foreign interests they wish to sell us out to.

There usually is.

Unfortunately, the lamestream press will jump on this with 4 hoofs.

At least it will get the Cheney bashing off the front pages.

The Bush Administration is simply the Clinton Administration with slightly cleaner rugs.

Would this be his first veto ever? I don't understand why he wants to drive away a large percentage of his base with this decision.

Good! The company that has the contract now is not American either and the company that has won this contract already has multi contracts around the world in port management. And NASA buys its rocket fuel from a French company so what is the big deal. A lot of spineless idiots are raising hell about something that is not a problem.. The problem is the leaking of classified information to the enemy and the idiots in the congress who want to stop the foreign listening program.

At least it is not like WW II and the mafia or the Communist are not in charge of the ports.

As the song goes:

Know when to walk away

This hand stinks...best to just fold at this point.

Yes.

This is very strange, the only thing both the Dims & GOP have agreed on this year and he finally threatens a veto. Something smells ....

Bush won't veto a spending bill...but this one he will? He is beyond stupid on this matter & illegal immigration. If this goes through, any attack on those ports in the future will be his fault.

If there is, George Bush feels no need to explain it, apparently.

We'll see what happens. The storms on this issue started on a long weekend. Yes, the president does need to explain what is happening here.
