Scottie’s Mom Says No To UAE Port Deal

From Holden:

Poor Little Scottie, even his mom is bucking the Bush line these days.

“Our roads, our bridges, our seaports, our airports and our border crossings are vital to our economy and prime targets for terrorists,” said Carole Keeton Strayhorn, Texas comptroller, couching it in home-state terms but jumping on the political bandwagon opposing the ports deal. “Why take the chance and let a private or public foreign operation control vital Texas infrastructure and property?”
