This proves that Karl Rove's strategy of simplistic sound-bites is a short-term success only. The Dubai Ports World deal is a complex issue, dare I say...nuanced? But Rove and his ilk have given the public a general dumbing down, and instead of trying to explain the issue, they tried to say 'Hey, we're the government, trust us'. They also, intentionally or not, put up an environment of fear when it comes to the Middle East among many people in America. They're reaping what they sow. You ungrateful, metal pansy!
