"Um .. Dubai? Never heard of it? Why?"


It's officially gone beyond comedy and has descended into pure farce. Recall from here that Commander Chimpy never heard of the port outsourcing deal that he's so adamantly defending:

Bush was unaware of the deal until he heard reports of the congressional uproar, presidential adviser Dan Bartlett told CNN.

And now we find that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld also had no clue what was going on:

RUMSFELD: I am reluctant to make judgments based on the minimal amount of information I have because I just heard about this over the weekend.

And the same apparently holds for Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace. The phrase "fucked up" doesn't begin to do this justice.

Man, I can't wait for the next press gaggle here to see what the press corps does to Li'l Scottie, if he even has the nerve to show up.

And THIS from someone who actually sits on the Foreign Investment Review panel. That'll teach him to miss meetings.

So how can it be all about the money, if Bush wasn't even aware of this deal as you assert in your post above?

Jeff, do you even bother to follow any of the links? Part of being "open-minded" is actually opening your mind to INFORMATION. Read a bit and come back when you are ready. And read CC's post again before he excoriates you for missing the point.
