14. No. When people complain that criticizing Rice for being unqualified,
over her head, a neocon, a shrill, ... they were specifically criticizing her actions. So to label Dems as racist for commenting on her actions is just a manipulation technique used car salesmen use all the time. And now - one the Presidency uses all the time.

To generalize about the port sale as "arab" is racist. Because you need to get specific. It isn't the cultural background of elites in Dubai that is the problem. It is the current actions & practices of the elites in the middle east.
