I had not posted on this issue yet for a reason. Partly because I felt that I did not know enough about the subject to speak on the issue and partly because it has been covered so very thoroughly by Michelle Malkin. My initial gut reaction is that this was not a good thing. That reaction was cemented today when I heard this on my way into the office this morning.
President Bush is taking a battering from fellow Republicans, even the governors of New York and Maryland, over the administration's support for a decision that gives an Arab company control of some commercial operations at six major seaports -- including Miami-Dade's.
But he got a boost Monday from an unlikely source, frequent critic and former president Jimmy Carter, who downplayed fears that the deal poses a risk.
Why am I suddenly overwhelmed with the urge to sing "Whatever it is, I'm against it"? For those of you who are much younger than the Lady Logician, that song is one of the classic Marx Brothers songs. Grouch Marx opens the movie "Horse Feathers" with it.
I don't care what they have to say
It makes no difference anyway
Whatever it is I'm against it!- Groucho Marx in "Horse Feathers"
If Jimmy Carter is for it....whatever it is, I'm against it!
I see where my friend Amendment X has chimed in on the issue as well. I share his disappointment with the President on this issue. He can't be bothered to veto any out of control spending but he can be moved to veto this????? Unreal!
