Ya know, ordinarily I'd be defending President Bush when the press has a hayday with something like this, but when he bugs our citizens on the basis of their ties with certain countries and then offers to give the management of key U.S. ports to companies owned by these same countries, I just have to ask...what the fuck is going on???
This is either the most subtle stroke of genius ever conceived, the true aim of which remains hidden for the moment behind a well-crafted smoke screen, or it is the most crass, unbelievable act of arrogance ever perpetrated by a person in public office.
Honestly, I'm afraid to guess.
