hanging tough...or just plain idiotic, shady and unreasonable

from yahoo: Bush Says Ports Deal Will Stand
By TED BRIDIS, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 19 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - Lawmakers determined to capsize the pending sale of shipping operations at six major U.S. seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates said President Bush's surprise veto threat won't deter them.

---ok, isnt this the president who did not even seem aware that he had something called veto power? now he chooses to veto? now?

this man is too stubborn for his own good. i have yet to talk to a single person who is comfortable with this situation, and i wonder what kind of shady deals our government must be in on with uae in order to stick to this plan so strongly. this is not about commerce, the business is "state-owned" and its about flooding more money into arab government. are there no americans capable of doing this job?

i truly believe at this point in time, if the bin laden threat is really a threat and not just a convenient ploy on behalf of the bush administration (which more and more i am beginnning to feel, as bin laden is m.i.a. except when it is helpful to bush for some reason...) then our national guard should be guarding the ports...oh, wait, are they all in iraq right now too?
