Bush Is Freaking Out Republicans

Once again, the Rove memos didn't get out about what the talking points should be in regards to the possible sale of six US ports to terrorist financiers.

And it's a difficult issue to understand. It's complicated. Bush has worked hard to paint all Arabs as terrorists. And for many Americans, the idea that all Arabs are terrorists is an easily understood notion.

So it's understandable that Bush is having some difficulty in selling America's National Security to the United Arab Emirates.

So I'll try for a moment to explain how this works.

In Bush's world, there are bad people who want to kill Americans, destroy liberty and defeat America in an international war, and there are good people who want to kill Americans, destroy liberty and defeat America in an international war.

UAE are the good terrorists. Sure one of the 9/11 hijackers was came from the UAE. Sure some of the funds were drawn from UAE banks. Sure the UAE has a history of funding Al Queada and other terrorist organizations. Sure, the UAE smuggles nuclear parts and supplies to Iran. And sure, the UAE still has ties to terrorism and is probable still involved in killing Americans in Iraq.

But Bush is friends with some of these people. He's been to parties with them. He's accepted money from some of them. The Arabs have been very good to Bush as a whole. Bush loves Arabs.

So there's good terrorists that want to kill you and destroy America and there are bad terrorists that want to kill you and destroy America.

You can trust Bush to know which is which.

Well, GWB sure acts like he's afraid of blackmail or something, doesn't he? What's he so hot to stop the Congressional investigation for? Hmmmm? Why not just let Congress go ahead? If the sale was done by the book, like Bushie claims, what's the freakin' problem, right?

He's hiding something.

It's funny that Bush is claiming that if we block this sale, it sends a message to the international community that not everything in the US is for sale, to just anyone. Considering he was a vocal opponent to selling Chevron to the Chinese.

And as his final argument, he's basically saying, "Trust Me".

I can't say I've read everything that idiot says about the ports. He really said, basically, we shouldn't tell the international community that not everything in the US is for sale to just anyone??!! Like, we should be telling it come one, come all, first come first served, want a lovely national park or a port system or anything else, damn, plunk yer dineros down and it's yers!

Trust him? He makes me sick. But I suspect, as I said above, that he's hiding something.

They should have sold Chevron to the Chinese, not the ports though... I sure hope this country wakes up for the mid-term elections, maybe we can have some congressional hearings with some teeth to them for a change. :-)
