One of These States Is Not Like the Others

From the AP:
In New Jersey, the agency in charge of area ports sued to try to block Dubai Ports from taking over operations there.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey argued in court papers that Dubai Ports World was violating its lease by not getting consent for its pending acquisition of the current port operator, London-based Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co.

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, who is also suing over the sale, urged other governors to join the case.

Governors of Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania have expressed concerns about the takeover; Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has said he trusts his brother the president on such security issues.

Right.  I wonder if Jeb will run on his “Bush Family First” platform at election time, or if even he will bail out of the sinking ship before then.  Cynicism aside, it’s always nice to see when brotherly love comes before our nation’s safety.
