The Port Deal that Broke the Camel's Ability To Protect Itself

Ok, a strangled turn of phrase, but apt. The link above is a DailyKos analysis of the President's deal allowing the UAE to control 6 of our ports. Even such right-wing heavies as Bill Frist and Dennis Hastert, both of whom lick Bush's scrotum on a regular basis, and enjoy it, are coming out against this thing. And now Bush is saying he'll veto any attempt to block the deal. What exactly is going on here? Why is Bushie sticking so hard to his guns, when he seems to be the only one doing so? It's a little fishy, if you ask me.
