  •  More like a convergence (4.00)
    Leftists like Maryscott are upset about the turning over of port operations to corporations beyond the US' control. Conservatives like Bob Ehrlich are annoyed by the fact that it's the UAE that's involved; they're deeply invested in an anti-Arab, anti-Islamic mindset that is offended by the deal. jiacinto is right-leaning, so he tends to have the same line of thinking as someone like Ehrlich.

    It's like leftists and Pat Buchanan agreeing the Iraq War was wrong, or Al Gore and Bob Barr agreeing that Bush went too far with the NSA stuff. It's a convergence, not a sign of shared values or worldviews.
