One television commercial for Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, recounts how he disagreed with President Bush earlier this year on the Dubai port deal. It would seem that the purpose of the commercial is either to distance Tiahrt a bit from a struggling president or to counter criticism that he is a GOP soldier who does whatever the president orders.
If it’s the former, Bush must really be radioactive if a long-term congressman from a red state who is facing a little-known opponent feels the need to separate himself from Bush. If it’s the latter, is the Dubai deal — which was nearly universally condemned in this country — the biggest disagreement Tiahrt can come up with?
