Senator William "I want to be LOVED like John McCain" Frist:
For his truly irrational and racist reaction to the Dubai Ports World buyout of the British company P&O. It had nothing to do with port security and it was just an excuse for Bill Frist to gather some of that sweet media coverage that other "courageous" Republicans get when they "stand-up" to President Bush.
Frist gave the following statement earlier last week;
"If the administration cannot delay this process, I plan on introducing legislation to ensure that the deal is placed on hold until this decision gets a more thorough review."
"I'm not against foreign ownership," said Frist, "but my main concern is national security."
He was speaking to reporters in Long Beach, Calif., where Frist was doing a fact-finding tour on port security and immigration issues. This type of trip is also known as a preliminary campaign stop to test the waters for a run for President.
He states that he is not against foreign ownership of ports, well then it must be the possible owners, because he had no complaints about the ownership by a company from Shoe Bomber Richard Reed's homeland. HHMMMMM
While I realize that there were Republicans and Conservatives who said more outrageous things about this situation, Senator Frist, should know better. His stand is pure politics and it needs to be called what it is.
That is all.
