    How dare you question john mccain on (bothersome noun) port deals, when he was a POW for five years he didn't have (same noun) any port deals.

    McCain agrees with Bush on everything. Why should the Dubai port deal be different. Even when McCain says he doesn't agree with Bush he winds up supporting Bush on the issue.

    He said it was a good deal because Dubai was a freer country than China.

    "We’ve got some very, very big issues that I think are perhaps more important than whether a country that’s freer than China should have control of some of our terminals."

    because he's stupid?

    half of this war on terror stuff is a sham... YOU CAN'T BUILD UP PEOPLE INTO A LATHER ABOUT MUSLIMS... AND THEN BE LIKE... "LET'S SELL THEM OUR PORTS!"...

    you sell the Islamic paranoia... which bush was pushing like a door to door salesman with gambling debts... you can't just be like "well, this one tiny group of Muslims are OK"....

    The Dubai port deal fiasco was a sham. There was never any threat to our ports from that. It was all grandstanding by Senators like Chucky Schumer.

    He was trying to sell off US assets to appease his backers in Dubai.
