"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Bush, Congress clash over ports deal - Feb 22, 2006: "Bush, who has yet to veto a bill, warned Tuesday that the United States is sending 'mixed signals' by attacking a Middle Eastern company after a British firm ran the ports for several years."

It certainly does send 'mixed signals.' Nonetheless, they should be able to get a grip on it and understand. There is nothing hypocritical about the a U.S. stance against this contract with regard to dealings with any nation in this part of the world. Although, Dems could be a little less so, but I'll take their support on this.

The security of this nation is one we should all be willing to work on together.
