Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) "isn't sure which side (President Obama) is on" with his "un-American" speech in Cairo.
Listen, jackass, this is our overwhelmingly-elected President you are talking about being "un-American". This is our Commander in Chief who you are openly wondering "which side he is on". Protecting your precious political career is no excuse for personal and moral cowardice, when you accuse the President of treason you should put your damn money where you fat mouth is.
I wish I didn't keep having so many uses for that image, but you knuckleheads keep serving up the excuses.
Let me get it straight, Senator Inhofe, you are not sure whether President Obama is on the side of America, so you are not sure that he is not on the side of, for example, Al Qaeda? Are you serious that you are unsure whether or not the President does or does not support the people who kill American citizens and soldiers and who throw acid in the faces of young girls who are impertinent to go to school? You have trouble determining whether or not the President of the United States is on the side of the people who hijacked our planes and flew them into our buildings, or whether or not he is instead on the side of the passengers of those planes and the rescue workers who died in the Trade Center?
Brian Breuther at TPM managed to get Senator Inhofe's communications director, Jared Young on the phone to clarify whether or not the Senator was implying that the President sided with those who would do harm to America and its citizens:
"No, no, he's not saying that, no. He just certainly doesn't seem to be on the side of our men and women in uniform."
OK, you Traitorous Bastard. You aren't saying he is on the side of the people who kill our soldiers, you are simply saying that the President of the United States "doesn't seem to be" on the side of our soldiers, living and dead. I'll tell you what - you chickenshit chickenhawk traitorous forked-tongued bastard - I will spare the sidestepping political doubletalk you so love to use as a weapon while decrying any personal responsibility and I'll tell you straight what I think:
You, Senator Inhofe, are an un-American traitorous bastard. You do not uphold or support the basic underlying tenets of the Consititution, you dishonor the Founding Fathers and you are a disgrace to the citizens you represent and the men and women of the Armed Forces who are unfortunate enough to have to rely on your decisions. Your accusation of treason against the President of the United States is only more pathetic and offensive because of the mealy-mouthed, cowardly, backhanded, gutless way you state it. Be a man - be a "real American" - Senator: accuse our President of treason outright and stand by your words.
