    This thing stinks worse than the cigar Clinton "shared" with Monica.

    Someone asked earlier why some conservatives are beginning to have doubts about Pres. Bush's real allegiances to fighting the WOT. Here is just more evidence;

    The ports issue doesn't mind me so much anymore now that I've seen a lot more detail..
    Still a political blunder but Pres. Bush is in the right.

    Able danger once again makes me wonder what the hell is going on in Congress and the White House.

    Able Danger has always made me wonder wtf is up. So too does the lack of traction the Saddam tapes have made. So too does the failure to release and get transcribed all the intel papers found in Iraq/Afghanistan. None of this is making sense.

    I disagree about the ports, but not only on the context of UAE, but foreign control/workers at all ports of entry. Considering Bush's record on borders in general, I'm not reassured about the 'due diligence' claims.

    When one is asked to suspend common sense, because the president hands the foreign nation a 'race card' to play, I just don't feel compelled to go along.

    At the same time, finally they are getting the idea that they need to explain what they are trying to do, which again does not equal being correct.

    I think its pure incompetence and hubris. Far too many political appointees from both this admin and the Clinton admin. making decisions they shouldn't be in a position to make.

    tsk, tsk how completely disloyal you are. How dare anyone criticize the party you 'care about.' Don't you know that 'goose stepping' is the way to show we care.

    Yeah. So now are democrats going to really be the party of security now? Or just on this port deal, then back to appeasement. This all sucks bad.

    The adminstration making mistakes does not create security minded democrats, rather it's handed them an opportunity which so far they have been taking advantage of. It doesn't help that they are making the right noises.
