Inhofe says patriotism question will sink Obama

I suppose this level of crap was to be expected from these slime bags.

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe has stated that voters will have a difficult decision once they enter the voting booth, and that this difficulty will help the Republicans win the election:

Regardless of what polls show, Inhofe said, voters will have to ask themselves a question once they get behind the curtain in the voting booth on Election Day.

"Do you really want to have a guy as commander in chief of this country when you can question whether or not he really loves his country?" he asked.
"That's the big question.''
It's once again playing on the Republican song sheet that this guy really isn't "one of us". It's utterly disgraceful.

I think there is going to be much more of this kind of crap as the election approaches. After all, we have a 72 year old man reduced to claiming that he is an agent of change whilst offering the exact same policies as Bush has offered for the past eight years. The fact that McCain's campaign doesn't actually have a theme, and is now attempting to steal Obama's, means that he's willing to say anything to get to the prize.

As he stagnates in the polls I think the Republicans will get ever more desperate. They have already shown, through their commercials, that they are willing to play subtly and just below the radar with the fears some Americans have regarding race and, unfortunately, I think there is going to be even more of this crap further down the road.

Of course, Inhofe, having made the original charge, then attempts to back away from this charge whilst essentially leaving the accusation on the table:
"Let me be clear,'' he said. "I am not questioning Sen. Obama's patriotism, but you have to question why at times he seems so obviously opposed to public displays of patriotism and national pride, like wearing an American flag lapel pin.''
So patriotism is something that one wears, literally, like a badge.

This is another reason why Obama has to win come November, these morons are simply too stupid to be allowed to remain in power.

Will there now be a media circus demanding that McCain publicly disassociate himself from Inhofe's remarks? Don't hold your breath.
