Jim Inhofe is a hoax
Inhofe says climate trip a success

The senator says he was able to deliver his message in Copenhagen.

By JIM MYERS World Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe spent many more hours in the air than he did on the ground at a United Nations climate change meeting in Copenhagen this week.

"There's nothing worse than 18 hours on a commercial plane,'' the 75-year-old Oklahoma Republican conceded Friday.

Still, Inhofe declared his fly-by about four hours on the ground a success.

"We didn't give a speech, but all the ingredients were there,'' Inhofe said, expressing confidence he was able to not only deliver his own climate change message to reporters but dispute the one coming from others, including President Barack Obama. "It was worth the trip.''
If you can stomach more of this article and care to view the speech he flew 18 hours to make, click here:

Is Mr Inhofe so far removed that he doesn't think there is anything worse than spending 18 hours on a commercial plane? how about:

18 hours sitting in an overcrowded ER with a sick crying baby, worrying about how you're going to afford the prescription let alone the hospital bill because you've no insurance, thus the long wait, as if you had insurance your child would have been seen diagnosed, treated and the insurance billed within a few hours?

18 hours of waiting for school to serve free breakfast as the last meal you had was the schools free lunch from the day before?

18 plus hours under terrorist attack in the desert....for why?

How about being a tax payer in OK and realizing your hard earned taxes just flew a pompous ass round trip to Copenhagen for 4 hours to make himself and OK look like a bunch of ignorant backwood idiots. How much did it cost the people of OK to fund his public nah nah nah nah nah of the President?

The article ends with a quote from Inhofe stating "it was a hostile envioroment"......well duh, psst, Mr Inhofe, you are the enemy sir.
