Bush Defies Rising Fury About Handing Our Ports To UAE, Threatens Veto

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

BREAKING NEWS: From The NY Daily News:
The Dubai firm that won Bush administration backing to run six U.S. ports has at least two ties to the White House.

One is Treasury Secretary John Snow, whose agency heads the federal panel that signed off on the $6.8 billion sale of an English company to government-owned Dubai Ports World - giving it control of Manhattan's cruise ship terminal and Newark's container port.

Snow was chairman of the CSX rail firm that sold its own international port operations to DP World for $1.15 billion in 2004, the year after Snow left for President Bush's cabinet.

The other connection is David Sanborn, who runs DP World's European and Latin American operations and was tapped by Bush last month to head the U.S. Maritime Administration.
Bush said he feels so strongly about handing over our ports to those who helped enable the 9/11 attacks, he will veto any bill Congress sends him. Can we impeach him now? What will it take? Do we wait until he flies AF 1 into the Capitol Building?

From Associated Press:
President Bush said Tuesday that the deal allowing an Arab company to take over six major U.S. seaports should go forward and that he would veto any congressional effort to stop it.

"After careful review by our government, I believe the transaction ought to go forward," Bush told reporters who had traveled with him on Air Force One to Washington. "I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company. I am trying to conduct foreign policy now by saying to the people of the world, `We'll treat you fairly.'"
Insane. We hand our factories over to everyone and anyone, we handed our state department over to a tiny country in the Middle East, Bush openly kisses repeatedly, the King of Saudi Arabia, aside from the obviousness of this marriage made for men, has the entire GOP sold their souls yet?

Why do they hate gay lovers kissing in public? Have they no shame? It is obviously perfectly fine, isn't it? But why should we be kissing the guys who sponsored the 9/11 attackers? What?

Just this last week the guy who brought us the Cole blow up, killing many sailors, "escaped" his prison. What a shockeroo.

All over the Middle East, everyone is back stabbing everyone. So why would we hand over all our major ports to one of these back stabbers? Makes zero sense to me!

The GOP put Bush in power, they enable him, they work with him, they are responsible for him existing in office and they can get rid of him. If this doesn't force them to rethink who is running America and why, well, I am speechless. (Actually, not!)

And what are the "consequences" Bush darkly threatens us with? If he knows, why can't he spit them out? Will they attack us again if we don't hand over our ports? If so, yet another reason to say no. Are we doing this so we can have troops in Iraq? Again, what the hell? Why do we need troops there, anyway? They aren't doing us any good over there, they are making things worse and worse.

The oil? Well, the UAE is way over the Hubbert Oil Peak, they are the bankers for the other corrupt kissy-kissy guys over there and again, they were the conduit for bin Laden's money, weren't they? Europe needs their oil, not us. If the Europeans want to have them run their ports, bon appetite! But as for me, no. No!

Gov. Pataki said no. The gov of NJ said no. Mayor of NY said no. So it is no as far as I am concerned. Pakaki should call for Bush's impeachement now.

Yes, to that, I say! Yes!
