Ehrlich Backs Bush--on Ports and Spying


After his brief split with President Bush over the management of the nation's ports, Gov. Bob Ehrlich on Friday wanted to make it abundantly clear the two are on the same page when it comes to the nation's security.

Speaking with reporters today, the Republican governor not only reiterated that he was coming around to Bush's view on the sale of port operations in Baltimore and elsewhere to a Dubai firm, but he offered his unequivocal support for the president's domestic eavesdropping program.

"I wholeheatedly support the President as regard to domestic surveillance," he said. "I want to know what the bad guys are saying in wartime."

Asked if he believes the President was on firm legal ground to approve the eavesdropping without first going to court, Ehrlich, a lawyer, said: "Absolutely. I do."
