James Inhofe may be the single craziest man in the U.S. Senate and he shows why with this fact-free diatribe about Obama’s “November surprise,” purported to be the unleashing of “massive regulation” that will continue his pattern of destroying everything that Inhofe holds dear.
Inhofe told WND’s Greg Corombos people from his state constantly tell him they feel targeted by government regulations, and he used energy as a prime example.
“They have this war on fossil fuels,” Inhofe said. “He’s doing everything to kill domestic production of oil, natural gas and coal. This is something that is just un-American.”
Yes, he’s done so much to kill it that domestic production of oil and natural gas is at an all-time high. Killing the industry: He’s doing it wrong.
Inhofe said the track record is similar on defense.
“In his first budget, he destroyed our only fifth generation fighter (the F-22), he destroyed our lift capacity (the C-17), he destroyed our future combat system, he destroyed our Poland operation to stop missiles from coming from Iran to the United States,” he said.
Uh, what? Poland operation to stop missiles from Iran to the U.S.? Iran doesn’t even have missiles that could reach Poland, much less America. They can barely reach the Mediterranean with their most up-to-date technology (and their test of those missiles didn’t go too well a few months ago). And the F-22 was a major boondoggle, with cost overruns, serious mechanical problems (like depriving the pilots of oxygen) and the highest accident rate of any aircraft in the fleet. But we still have 187 of them; nothing was “destroyed.”
