America for Sale
Sometimes progressives just don't know a good thing when it falls into their laps. Instead of discussing whether giving the ports contract to a company owned by the UAE government is a good or bad idea, we should've come out swinging, screaming that it appears under this administration that America's security is for sale. I'm sure other examples of this could've been found fairly quickly. We could've had the upper hand in the media cycle of this story within hours. The time has passed when we can sit back and hope they shoot themselves in the foot. They've done it time and time again, but the media still doesn't understand how unpopular Bush and his schtick is (his popularity is at 39% in the lastest polls). It really doesn't matter whether the ports contract is a good or bad thing -- what matters is the media cycle and what progressives need to do to constantly make Bushco look bad.
