I did not know, but I will veto!

Bush was unaware of the pending sale of shipping operations at six major US seaports to the state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates until the deal already had been approved by his administration, the White House said on Wednesday.
Bush's chief spokesman, Scott McClellan, said on Wednesday that the US president had only learned about the deal "over the last several days", once it was completed, saying questions about it "didn't rise to the presidential level".

Interesting that Bush will use his first veto to block an attempt to reverse this takeover by Dubai on an issue he innitially had no clue about. What a man!
