"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

The Dubai Ports Deal - New York Times

The Dubai Ports Deal - New York Times: "The president can't get away with his usual 'trust me' mantra now that Congress and the public have emphatically declared they don't believe that the administration's key committee in approving the takeover exercised appropriate care. Legitimate security questions have been raised that can be answered only by a genuinely fresh evaluation whose scope and results are transmitted to Congress and to a perplexed public as well."

It is just the American people playing a role in their government and when that happens the media still looks to paint everything horrible.

This happened with Harriet Myers and people spoke.....not the first time and I don't see why it won't be the last. It's quite refreshing to see issues like this play out, yet it cannot happen without the usual from the media.
