Another Republican Blasts Bush's UAE Port Deal

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Representative Sue Myrick is leaving no doubt about how she feels about the deal to sell six major U-S seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates.
In a one-sentence letter to President Bush, Myrick writes, "In regards to selling American ports to the United Arab Emirates, not just NO - but HELL NO!"

Another Email to Cafferty from Republican:

His actions seem to mimic those of a "Manchurian Candidate"-type syndrome, in his bias toward aiding foreign big business and royal families. It is almost treasonous... Click here for more reactions from the Republican base.

UPDATE: Dana seems to think that the fact that a bunch of red-necks are all riled up mean that this is all about racism. Let is be clear. This is not about an "Arab company". The following is from Eschaton:

...this is a company owned and controlled by the hereditary oligarchy of the UAE, many of whom, apparently, were Bin Laden's pals.

The Central Intelligence Agency did not target Al Qaeda chief Osama bin laden once as he had the royal family of the United Arab Emirates with him in Afghanistan, the agency's director, George Tenet, told the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States on Thursday.

Had the CIA targeted bin Laden, half the royal family would have been wiped out as well, he said.

Handing over the ports to Bin Laden's pals is just a bad idea.

Used the next blog button and found your site.

I have the sneaking suspicion that the corporate cronies know that its reign will end soon, so they are trying to steal as much money as possible before Americans finally catch on.

This UAE deal would be another example of this. The administration is spending less each year on port security, and yet White House insiders stand to benefit form the deal. The greed will be are undoing.

Glad I found your blog.
I agree with you 100% and I am a Republican... YIKES! What is this world coming to when both side agree on something? Great Blog- Karen
politically lost is onto the real thing, here.

How else do you explain the Exxon billions except some sort of bankrolling in expectation of a shortfall.

Reign ending soon, that is a speculation that I would love to believe!!

But this is hitting, overall, a theory I have espoused for some time. As we move toward "ownership society" and "one corp." dubbed globalization and we have chaos in the rank and file. Marshall law anyone?
