Chappy Ted, doesn't sound so "enthused" in his opposition.

Looks like he is just reading the lines.

Now Sir hillary is doing the same thing.

Mary Kay has some stuff that would take care of that, pronto!

I am amazed God doesn't strike her dead after the ChiCom deal. She's got SOME nerve -- and she thinks we have amnesia.

Yeah, and they were only one of three nations to recognize the Taliban...

Which allowed them to get and pass on information...to us.

Well, I see you're quoting my previous message, so obviously I know who has the security role and there's no reason for you to yell at me. Really maica, I'm not stupid.

I'll join the thread later.

Hillary is " deeply concerned " about port security because she's from New York. Now, let's find out who among the august senate body has voted against funding for additional port security.

Hillary says the Bush administration is "dysfunctional". What balls!!! Hillary saying "dysfuntional" is as ballsy as Ted Kennedy naming his dog "splash".

If you remember...Landrieu swore in 2000 that the main reason to re-elect her was her seat on the SAFC..so that she could protect LA military bases...Rightbafter the election, Hillary had her bumped off the committee, and got the seat ..

The nodding fellow reminds me of H herself at Mrs King's funeral.

How funny that video of her will have this guy in every frame!

She is making no sense as she tries to walk a tightrope - not wanting to be found on either side of this issue.

Probably a hillary eunuch. He's bobbing his head taking cadence, so that Sir hillary doesn't sound so shrill when she speaks, JMO.

Probably not. We could use some new roads, but I'd prefer they not have explosive devices planted in the asphalt.

Hillary: We've heard from numerous administration spokespeople that those of us raising concerns are out of place. For many of us, there is a significant difference between a private company running ports and a foreign entity running the ports.

If we are impacting national security, the full 45 days of investigation is mandatory if it affects natinoal security.

Yet, a decision was made not to conduct that 45 days of investigations.

Sec. Chertoff has claimed we have a disciplined process. On the face of it, they don't.

There are numerous problems with this review process that we need answers to but in the larger context, port security, particularly given the problems we've had with Homeland Security, apparently the WH is about to issue their report about Katrina, which based on the press reports will make you cry. It's 4.5 years after 9/11 and we've been saying that tehre are problems and it's troubling.
