Sen. Inhofe says he'll oppose Hagel

By Ashley Killough

Sen. Jim Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has pledged to oppose President Barack Obama's nomination of former Sen. Chuck Hagel for secretary of the Defense Department after a sit-down with Hagel on Tuesday.

"We had a very cordial meeting today in which we discussed his nomination," the Republican senator from Oklahoma said in a statement. "Unfortunately, as I told him during our meeting today, we are simply too philosophically opposed on the issues for me to support his nomination."

    I'll bet if there were "TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!!" (the ONLY plan the GOP have) involved in the nomination, he'd support the nomination then. Hahahahahahahaha

    This friggin' Sen. Jim Inhofe is a veritable disgrace to this country! The fact that is gets elected to the Senate over and over again only goes to show just how dumb the people in Oklahoma are. No wonder they call the the Dumb Okies!!! Unfortunately, you can't cure stupid!

      Thank you, George. This Inhofe is just another mouthpiece for the money-grubbing M.I.C. who already has a monopoly on government spending. This country can well do with far fewer clowns like these!

  6. More Proof We Own You

    Think about it . . . .you know we own you.

    At first, by controlling the banking system we were able to control corporation capital. Through this, we acquired total monopoly of the movie industry, the radio networks and the newly developing television media. The printing industry, newspapers, periodicals and technical journals had already fallen into our hands. The richest plum was later to come when we took over the publication of all school materials. Through these vehicles we could mold public opinion to suit our own purposes. The people are only stupid pigs that grunt and squeal the chants we give them, whether they be truth or lies.

    We are the zine-0-ists . . . . we are the israelies . . . .just keep the money coming!

    Of course he will, so other republicans who have donors from arms manufacturers can put a idiot in for Secretary of Defense who will sign military contracts with his eyes closed. Mr Inhofe there comes a line where you stop being a corporate suck up, grow a backbone and say No. Hungry little kids and many others could use that money for good. Rather than inflating an already oversized conventional military which has not seen any real action since Korea or possibly Vietnam. Iraq and Afghanistan had virtually no Air force or Navy. Chuck Hagel unlike you , has seen combat first hand. He knows what the country needs.

  8. More Proof We Own You

    For all you unbelieving foolish Americans . . . . What more do you need to know that we control your leaders?

    Jim Inhofe is our boy . . . he works for us and not you. Sure he should be shot at a traitor according to the few real American Patriots that are left . . . but it's too late! American is toast!

    We can trot out a score of US Senators on any day or at the drop of a hat to do our bidding. We, through AIPAC, own your Congress.

    We own Obama.

    Biden says you don't have to be jewish to be a zion-0-ist – Judaism has nothing to do with zine-0-ism.

    We zine-0-ists in israel own you stu-pud Americans. We love creating money out of thin air through our federal reserve bank that controls Wall Street.

    Most importantly, we love you dummies giving us your TAX DOLLARS FOR FREE!

    And . . . oh yeah . . . we love creating enemies with our neighbors and WE LOVE having you dummies fight our wars for us. Nothing is better than having a high-tech goyim military do all of our fighting and DYING for us!!

    We laugh at you stu-PUD Americans in tel-aviv.

    Yippi-ki-ya . . . . . we are your MASTERS!!!

    Mr. Inhofe ideals like that are why we hope you do not get re-elected. Try opening your mind and closing your mouth. You might do something good for the people you are sapost to represent.

      Well said, U.S.M.C. 1371. Unfortunately, this right-wing, self-serving Okie bozo won't do as you suggested.
