That little fact seems to have escaped most people here on FreeRepublic. Just think about the precedent that has been set in these countries -- by allowing U.S. Customs officials to operate in their port facilities like this.
Until I hear ONE Democratic politician formally condemn Al Gore's speech about us discriminating against Saudi Arabia, I'll take their hawkishness on this issue with a grain of salt.
This is the same crowd that came out of the woodwork during Harriet Miers to trash her and then crawled back under a rock after it was over. Same names, calling for impeachment....Anybody know who they are?
No, although I have my suspicions. You never see them supporting the President on anything, do you?
It's pretty hard to not think there is an anti-Arab component to all of this hysteria. There are too many comments on this forum that are only missing the torches and pitchforks.
Lots of cowards in the Congress.
The President has a pattern of getting his enemys to bet BIG on a losing hand.
People are constantly shouting around here about "why doesnt he defend his actions" and "he has to make a statement on this". Meanwhile the POTUS bides his time as his enemys become shriller and shiller, and emboldened to make stupider and stupider statements.
Then one day they find themselves politically painted into a corner.
I cant say how this will play out in this years elections, but this guy isnt dumb.
Yes, I love the way Brit named off the months making his point.
So this is the thread where all the normal, reasonable Freepers are hanging out. Thank goodness I found it. It feels like total madness in the threads the last couple of days. It's so ugly, it's making me sick.
I think there are some underground liberal posters having a field day dogpiling into the threads because it's all the sudden okay to say any ignorant thing you want to about Bush and the horse he rode in on without being questioned and debated.
Thanks to the OP for giving us some more useful facts to use to counter the hysteria.
A.Hun found this on the union subject.
It's so nice, factual, and reasonable in here - can we just close the door? :o)
Yes, soon this thread will be in the smokey backroom.
I was over checking out the posts at DU awhile back and they were bragging about having 20+ posting here. They travel in packs like dogs.
Well said. If a press release from Harry Reid's office can do this to a solid contingent on FR, I fear for our country's future.
Why remove them? Better that they be seen for what
they say and believe. Thats what makes FR a supererior
forum to DU. DU cannot suffer disagreement, so fragile
are their egos and agruments.
