Q Mr. President, leaders in Congress, including Senator Frist, have said that they’ll take action to stop the port control shift if you don’t reverse course on it. You’ve expressed your thoughts here, but what do you say to those in Congress who plan to take legislative action?
THE PRESIDENT: They ought to listen to what I have to say about this. They ought to look at the facts, and understand the consequences of what they’re going to do. But if they pass a law, I’ll deal with it, with a veto.
Pass the blatantly unConstitutional McCain/Feingold Incumbent Protection Act — No veto.
Pork barrel laden bills handing out tax payers’ funds in gay abandon — No veto.
And we could go on.
But suggesting that maybe it isn’t such a brilliant idea to hand over the keys to our ports to an Arab country from which 2 of the 19 came?
Oh, THAT he’ll veto.
I might say something more later, but right now I’m incapable of saying anything that wouldn’t make your screens melt…
