The Wall Street Journal has a "Ports Deal News Tracker" that is loaded with almost up to the minute updates concerning congressional hearings and other worldwide news about the ports deal.
One of the more recent updates includes an article today reporting that House Republicans are "distancing themselves from" Bush and many are opposing this deal because of constituent concerns. Give me a break, I understand that the job of these politicians is to represent their constituency, but since when have they ever fought for their "constituents' views"?!
This is probably not just my own theory, but I'm wondering if this sudden 180 on national security by the Democrats hasn't forced congressional Republicans to follow suit in an attempt to avoid another black mark as election season heats up again.
