Carlyle Group and Bush's Ports Giveaway
Remember these two names: John Snow and David Sanborn. Then remember these three companies: Carlyle Group, CSX, and Dubai Ports World.

PART OF CSX -- namely, CSX Lines -- was sold to ...drum roll, please....
The Carlyle Group, early in Feb. 2003, for $300 million.
One of the biggest customers of CSX Lines is the US military.
John Snow, the CEO of CSX, was appointed Treasury Secretary by Bush jr. on Feb. 7, 2003.

David Sanborn was an executive with CSX and, then, a senior Dubai Ports World executive whom Bush
appointed last month to be the new administrator of the Maritime Administration of the Transportation Department.
Sanborn worked as Dubai Ports World's director of operations for Europe and Latin America.

Gee, d'ya think Sanborn greased the skids for Dubai Ports World to get Bushite approval to run operations at six of our nation's ports?

D'ya think?

Partly, I blame the Democrats.

Toddlers and oil crooks will take what they want unless somebody says, "Stop, that's bad!"
The Democrats have failed to discipline Der Monkey just like Barbara and Pickles have.
The President-the-Whole-World-Hates is an out-of-control three year old hellion.
He will continue to plunder the world's assests until someone gives him a reason to stop.
