Seems to me that Bush is ruining what could've been a good thing for him.
He must've had someone pressure DP World into pulling out of the part of the deal that most of us wanted them out of. But it seems he's ruining it by saying he STILL thinks it was a good idea and that it may HURT us for not giving the UAE this deal, STILL seeming not to get it that the majority of Americans, including Repubs., felt it was WRONG to give management of our ports to the UAE. He keeps going on with this message of how we shouldn't "hurt their feelings." Could you imagine if KERRY would've proposed such a deal? They would've called him "soft on terror," an "internationalist" (again), and accuse him of living in a "pre-9/11 world." Now the Dems. could use Bush's own words in ads against any Repub. who agreed with him.

1. And use it they had better.
If they want to win in November, they need to call this out in every race across the country.
The Democrats can finally have a common theme across the nation.

A clear message - bu$h and the republicans are soft on National Security

8. We also have him contradicting himself...
Remember he told Peter King yesterday that this was a GOOD thing? He was glad it was over? And then he comes out to the PRESS and says he's concerned about the killing of this deal, they're good allies, etc. Flip flop!

2. Well, he's not very bright to begin with.
And it obvious he doesn't care what the american people say or think, so he's acting just like himself.

4. True. He keeps digging deeper and deeper!
Remember how the Repubs. kept using Kerry's line about voting FOR the $87 billion before voting against it? (Of course it was taken out of context and it made total sense, but with Bush they won't even HAVE to take anything out of context.

10. NSA
Remember he admitted to breaking the law, buy going around FISA. The Repug congress, are trying to give him an out but so far it's not a done deal. The ACLU still have a case pending in federal court, i'm holding my breath that a fed judge will find him in violation of the FISA act.

5. This is the same guy who kept touching the Third Rail, even...
though he was politically electrocuted each and every time.

The man doesn't know when to stop. Nothing new here.

7. Wow-Bill Bennett just agreed with me...
He said he doesn't know why Bush won't just "let it be" and move on.
