President Bush on Tuesday threatened to veto any legislation that would queer a deal giving management of several U.S. ports to Dubai Ports World, a state-run company in the United Arab Emirates.

(Dubai Ports World is buying control of a London-based company now managing the ports.)

Bush said: "I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a [British] company."

He's kidding, right?

I wonder what President Bush stands to gain, and since when is he so concerned about not being biased?

Ask not what this does for Dubya; ask what this does for Halliburton...
