Just Because You're Paraniod ...

As for this whole flap about
Dubai Ports World taking over US ports ... I find it rather suspicious that Republican congressmen are beating up the president over this. Surely they are doing it to improve their re-election chances in November.

But why is Bush defending the deal? It seems like a contrived stance to give the Republican congressmen an issue on which they can differ with Bush, while playing to the anti-Muslim sentiment in middle America. Yes, that's right, I think it's all a smokescreen to stop Bush's unpopularity from loosening the Republican stranglehold on the Congress ...

I've been wondering about that too. I've heard a theory that over time, a leader gets tired of having anyone challenge him and eventually surrounds himself with yes-men. If so, one could imagine Bush thinking it will be fine to back up some sheikh friend in Dubai. Otherwise? No clue.
