Can anyone figure out the port deal alliances?

Talk about a strange situation! The President, of whom I have been generally very supportive, approves of the sale of a British port security company to a company owned by the United Arab Emirates. My thoughts are, "This is absurd! Why would Bush allow U.S. port security to fall into the hands of an Arab owned company? What is he thinking?"

I know my liberal friends will say that they have been asking that last question for a long time, and it pains me to have to say something about the President that they will agree with, but this port deal just makes no sense to me.

At first I thought that maybe I just didn't understand the situation. However, the large numbers of republicans who have joined democrats in opposing this deal have helped to assure me that I am right in my opposition to this.

But the thing that has really convinced me that I am right in opposing the President's position on the port deal is the fact that former President Jimmy Carter is backing the President's position. Carter has been one of Bush's most vocal critics, and for him to now support the President while many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle oppose him is very odd.

What is it they say about politics making strange bedfellows?

Like the deal or not, I think it is now officially a political football... and dead in the water. The Dems see a security issue that can make them appear strong... the Republicans see the hand writing on the wall... and here we go.
