Jim Inhofe Leads the Way In Saving America’s Defenses

In the past, America has a history of overcutting defense spending after wars and regretting it. George Washington warned against such a sentiment so it is not new. This time America is overcutting its defense during a war in anticipation of it being over. We may not have to wait to regret it. Enter our hero, Senator Jim Inhofe R-OK (full disclosure- a personal friend before he was senator) is leading the charge to have an orderly drawdown of our Armed Services and stop blind sequestration cuts which have no defense logic behind them. In a article in Stars and Stripes, he called it the way he saw it and the way many in the services see it.
In announcing an end to the 16-day government shutdown this month, Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said Republicans would insist during the budget conference talks that sequestration continue, saying preserving it was “critically important” to Republicans. He did not exempt defense spending in his remarks. Only a few Republicans are straying from that script so far. They include Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, the top Republican on the Armed Services panel. Asked if he supports keeping sequestration for the DOD, Inhofe said, “of course not.” “Going through more cuts in defense? We’ve already gone through that, and I think you’ll if you listen to the testimony from the chiefs on Thursday, they’ll say there’s a huge risk,” Inhofe said. “Risk means lives, American lives, by further cuts to our national security.” Inhofe said that Republicans not on the Armed Services panel have less of an understanding of the danger of continuing to cut the Pentagon budget. “We have some Republicans here that really don’t believe that we have the problem, the risk, we have right now,” he said. Asked if he is trying to reach out to his GOP colleagues to educate them, Inhofe said he is, “but they’re not that easy to educate
Keep fighting the good fight, Senator. My views are my own and not that of the Army.

  1. Do you think Inhoffe does cocaine too? I’m beginning to wonder about all conservatives now.,..Especially those in DC. Their irrationality is starting to make sense. (oops… sorry… I forgot Mosely is in DC now, my bad.) 🙂 j/k
    [way off topic but too many comments are based on it to edit, it seems like more left wingers are using cocaine, but I don’t know that we need to politicize addiction by tossing out wild and unfounded “jokes”. Please refrain from these type of jokes. Thank you.]

  2. Kavips, always the idiot has to be shrill, nasty and stupid. As soon as nutbag liberals can come up with a plan to stop the $50-60 Billion a year in Medicare Fraud and will admit Medicaid seldom has positive changes despite record spending we can certainly attack those who want to support a strong national defense.

    Imhofe has a steady view of the needs of our Armed Forces something Obama/Biden do not not do most Congressional members.

    By the way, Mr Imhofe’s son died last week in a plane crash, he was an Orthopedic Surgeon.

  3. Mike Protack: Shrill, nasty and stupid is a perfect description of you. Real tough war you fought at the recruiting desk, wasn’t it, flyboy? You giant sack of hypocritical crap.

  4. I’m just laughing that there is actually someone out there who thinks I’m an idiot. My how ill informed Mr. Protack is. 🙂 Although on a personal note, I really don’t mind being called one. And I’m not just saying it. When you reach a certain point in one’s life, where one really becomes concerned over how much good one can still finish before one passes on,… the fact that others who have not yet reached your level of understanding, or who haven’t yet grasped that reality, or who have other priorities, such as their ego, pride, and self worth to worry over, the fact that they don’t yet understand, doesn’t bother one. One understands at that point that they are no different really from you, when you too were a child, and said childish things. As time creeps up, one tends to become more right than wrong. When one is always right, it is refreshing to get a cold shower every now and then. Keeps one from getting soft….

    Forgive me for tacking this on… But in your post above, you failed to offer your definition of idiot. I’m rather curious if you have the ability to define one, and if so, the grace to dance around it well enough so it does not define you…..

    Btw. Liberals rule… (even though I’m not one, but its nice to be thrown in with the winning side of the moment…)

  5. The anonymous cowards always have something to say when they have no manhood. All losers of the world flock to blogs to pontificate about things they know nothing about.

    Liberals are idiots and thank God only 20% of the US, they only rule those who are dumb and uninformed.

    Poor little boy called Nobody, so aptly named because you are a nobody comfortable in the shadows hiding from the world with his keyboard taking the place of testicles because you have none.

    Lastly, what does your DD 214 say? Oh, wait you were too scared , too stupid and too much of an idiot to join.

    By the way, both Biden and Obama never cut a square corner on a drill field are idiots just like Kavips and Nobody.

  6. I guess you two cowards are online trying to buy a DD 214? Well boys, stay in the shadows as that place is there you belong. It fits your low level of testosterone and non existent IQ.

  7. For the two cowards Kavips and Nobody the local recruiters are waiting for you, your weight waiver. your ASVAB score waiver and your idiot waiver are ready.

    However, you won’t last one day so save the taxpayers a few $$$ and stay home clutching your keyboard as your only means of being anyone.

  8. Seriously, stay a an anonymous coward it is who you are and always will be.

    Plus with Obama Care, seeing the Doctor you want will be risky at best.

    Anyway, Kavips you anonymous idiot and loser, my oldest son is an MD at Yale.

  9. Btw. Liberals rule… (even though I’m not one, but its nice to be thrown in with the winning side of the moment…)

    Seems unlikely that it will last long. And then anyone interested in the truth will have to spend their time criticizing Republican banksterism and wars.

    Or more attempts at false flags or “crisis initiation” by dual citizens, the Israeli government or Americans working for its unregistered foreign lobby. Illegal/criminal, as usual, by the way:

    The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) is a United States law (22 U.S.C. § 611 et seq.) passed in 1938 requiring that agents representing the interests of foreign powers in a “political or quasi-political capacity” disclose their relationship with the foreign government and information about related activities and finances. The purpose is to facilitate “evaluation by the government and the American people of the statements and activities of such persons.”-Wikipedia

  10. Sequester is harmful to the Department of Defense, but is it somehow not harmful to other government agencies? Are their thoughtlessly mandated cuts somehow more efficient?

    It’s not that he’s wrong, but there are plenty of agencies feeling the same pain.
