History tells us that US Presidents and their underlings get tired in the second term. And here's how we know that history is happening right now:
The Bush Administration has agreed to lease operations of six major ports to a company based in the United Arab Emirates.
The Republican governors of New York and Maryland are threatening legal action to block the move. Thank goodness for that.
SWNID insists that demanding perfection from leaders is an uninformed path to constant frustration. So we forgive our President this mistake. But we urge him to correct it faster than he did Harriet Miers's nomination to the Supreme Court.
