I just resample the image to 300 and it is fine, BUT i don't get why
the landscapes are 300 when opened and the portraits are only 72.
The prefs are set to print area 300 and screen to 72. I can't
believe i have never seen this before. So is iPhoto doing something
to these images or is this normal

It is not normal. iPhoto must be resampling when rotating the images to the portrait mode. As I stated earlier I have no knowledge of iPhoto as I use a PC. I use Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX. Regardless of the orientation my images all open in Photoshop CS3 at 300 ppi. Check all the settings in iPhoto as I am sure the program can be set to not resample the images when rotating to portrait mode.

If all else fails you might download Nikon ViewNX and give it a try as your D80 image viewer.
