Bush Takes A Principled Stand In Favor Of Terrorism

So much for the ignorance defense…

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.’ “

*steps up*

Because Great Britain is not a terrorist breeding ground, and ports and military shipments are the kind of things you don’t want to let terrorists anywhere near, ever.

(“Great British”??? Jesus wept.)

But hey, George, if that’s where you want to draw your line in the sand, if you want to use your first-ever veto to facilitate terrorist access to our major ports and shipments of military supplies, please, you just go right ahead. If we’re really lucky, your veto gets overruled, and you get a double whammy: You reveal the insincerity of your war on terror for all to see, and you get publicly emasculated by your own tame Republican Congress (and maybe one less American city gets slagged by a container nuke, which, contrary to popular belief, we liberals are not in favor of).

    […] So, not long after reading about President Bush’s staunch defense of the corporations of the United Arab Emirates as plucky entrepreneurs who deserve the same opportunities as Great Britain, and strongly implies that it’s the forces of racism and intolerance holding them back, I see this little gem in today’s White House Briefing OPINION column, in reference to Al Gore’s denunciation of post-9/11 American abuses against the Arab world in (gasp!)… Saudi Arabia: The comments stirred an angry reaction on the right and in the blogosphere, and also drew a rebuke from Peter Wehner, director of the White House Office of Strategic Initiatives, which was e-mailed to reporters and others Tuesday. “It is noteworthy that Mr. Gore would travel to Saudi Arabia — a repressive society which is the home of Osama bin Laden and most of the terrorists who executed the worst attack on the American homeland in our history — to criticize (inaccurately) our government’s response to that attack.” […]
