Did Anyone Else Catch This?

From the transcript of the President's Media Availability yesterday (Whatever happened to "Press Conference"? Or is this just saying that he's "available" but may or may not give answers that are on-track with the questions?) :
And so people don't need to worry about security. This deal wouldn't go forward if we were concerned about the security for the United States of America.
Is this the same guy who gets obsessively paranoid about the idea of Homeland Security, and reminds us of our need for fear every three minutes?

The other line I thought was great was from Deputy Treasury Secretary Robert Kimmitt, in defending the fact that they didn't give the 45-day examination and investigation period as set down by a 1992 law:
"We didn't ignore the law," Kimmitt again maintained. "We might interpret it differently."

Hmmmmmmm.

I saw that too. And then there was the story about the Nebraska Powerball winners, which pushed the story off the front page. How convenient.

This is all a huge orchestration. It was a business deal. If it went through, he'd get rich. If it didn't - and I suspect his people knew it wouldn't - he could then use it down the line to accuse the Democrats of being bigoted for opposing it. Frankly I'm more afraid of 'the government' than of who's watching our ports.
