How did that checks and balances thing go again?

It turns out that Bush plans on closing the Dubai port deal tomorrow or Monday according to the U.S. Treasury Department:

Ports World’s $6.85 billion acquisition of Britain’s P&O will close on Friday or Monday, despite an additional 45-day review by the U.S. government in response to security concerns, a U.S. Treasury Department official said on Thursday.

And another great reason has arrived on why NOT to allow this deal: Al-Qaeda has infiltrated the UAE government. (via AmericaBlog)

    It’s tough to have checks and balances when Republicans control all three branches of the federal government. That said, I wouldn’t want the Democrats to control everything, either. If we’re not going to have checks and balances in our government, why not just give up and make Ted Turner emperor?
