A senior US senator has predicted a doomsday scenario for America under the leadership of President Barack Obama unless his powers are curbed.

Senior Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe has slammed the current US administration under Obama and called for a reversal of the president's socialist government polices that have 'stripped America of whatever it has'.

Speaking amongst a gathering of GOP, the Republican Party, supporters on Wednesday, the anti-Obama vocal lawmaker said that unless the opposition minority reclaims authority in Washington's corridors of power within 16 months, the country would suffer from irredeemable consequences.

“I never dreamed I would see an administration try to disavow all the things that have made this country different from all others,” the outspoken critic of Obama's 'over-centralized' government told in a town hall meeting at the Grove Community Center in Oklahoma.

I dont agree with everything this man says but I do concede that we are heading for a Doomsday if Obama continues trying to hammer these socialist policies into a broken Economy!

Whats your logic? That we should just not worry and allow Obama to do what he wants, because Bush expanded the executive branch? Sorry, I'm not flowing that line of thinking at all.

Interesting, nonetheless. Heres some quick info I gathered from wiki on Senator Inhofe.


James Mountain "Jim" Inhofe (born November 17, 1934) is an American politician from Oklahoma. A member of the Republican Party, he currently serves as the senior Senator from Oklahoma. He is among the most vocal global warming skeptics in Congress.[1] Inhofe often cites the Bible as the source for his positions on various political issues


I have heard several people suggest that some of the intentions motivating such statements is fueled by the political disconnect between SOME republicans and democrats. I would have to do further research on the senator to choose a side here in this argument. But again great info, and thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Hopefully this isn't true, but I can definitely see the basis as to why some may side with this perspective.

I usually don't agree with you much, but you are spot on here. Just because something is broken doesn't mean we continue to let it be broken and just "blame the last guy". At some point something has to be done to fix the problem.

Still, it think this is too little too late. This train is bound for glory and cannot be stopped anymore. See all of ya'll on the other side. *shrug*

I just looked up his voting record, he did vote against the first TARP program under Bush, he has voted against all additional spending as well.

Seems like he can back up his words with his actions.

Please, get the wambulance. These Republicans are brain dead. Sure Obama is continuing a lot of Bush's policies, but it was Bush that started this process and all we heard out of the Republicans at the time was that Bush was doing "God's work". They need to shut it.

Alright, I'm DONE with Inhofe!

The man refuses to read the health care bill! - Inhofe - Me no read bill

He also serves as to what is wrong with our country in terms of social policy, such as rights for homosexuals - James Inhofe on the Issues

He's a bad senator!

When you have a guy who refuses to read what's going to be one of the most important pieces of legislation to ever pass through this country, something wrong is going on!

The guy's a nutcase!

I think he's trying to say. "Who is he to object now, just because a president is a democrat, when he stood by and watched a republican make this possible"

I happen to agree. If they were worried of these things, where were they 8 years ago?! They were no where to be found.

I simply laugh because these fools get to suffer from their own ignorance.

It's unfortunate that so many of us here will immediately turn this into a "left vs right" discussion when it's CLEARLY not. I happen to agree with the Senators' prediction, and I agree with a previous post that stated that this has been building for a LONG time.

Nixon, Reagan, Carter, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Jr., and now Obama....ALL crooks, ALL bought and paid for via corporate capitalism. You want to blame someone, blame ALL of these former administrations as well as the current one.

The system is broken, and Dems and Repubs are pretty much equally responsible for selling us out for over a century.

If this is your attitude, a defeatist's attitude that, "Well, we're the common man... We can't do anything... It's time to roll over and die..." fine by me!

Me, on the other hand, I'll continue on, hoping and working for a better future. If you can't handle the pressure and think you're in a circle, then you will be.

A defeatist's attitude?

I'm at a loss as to how pointing out that we are being played by both sides of the aisle equals some sort of "defeatist attitude". If you can't see that both parties are two heads of the same beast, well i'm not really surprised at all. Our government has been co-opted, sold out, kaput. Big pharma, military defense contractors, WHO, the major banks are clearly calling the shots. Follow the money, read between the lines.

I never said that we can't do anything, so please refrain from putting words in my mouth in the future.

What pressure? What circle? Please be more clear and concise in the future when attempting to label someone for whatever reasons you may have. And way to stay on topic buddy!

Dude, I am on topic.

We're talking about a senator who predicts a doomsday in the US, and you come in about how both sides have been playing us for the last century.

So, please, tell me, if we're in the middle of both parties who are trying to take advantage of us, what would a person like you do?

The first step is to realize the Democrats AND the republicans are both bought and paid for by the banker/multinational corporations. Once you recognize that and trace it back to the Federal Reserve and other Central Banks, then there is some hope of rectifying the problem using a THIRD PARTY.

Since the USA is close to bankrupt and can not support the social programs already passed, I strongly suggest a couple of terms of Libertarians to see if they can straighten out the mess. They Hate the FED, they Hate the monopoly by multi national corporations and they Hate overseas wars. Maybe they can clean up our Social Services so they actually work like they are supposed to - as a last resort not a four generation handout. The ones I have talk to know you can not yank the rug out from under people by stopping Social Services cold turkey. They have got to be better than the hypocrites we have been electing for the last 90 years.

If the libertarians can do all that, then I will vote for them. Right now I'm skeptical of all promises by politicians.

_______________________________________________________________________

Imhofe is an extremist IMHO. When Social Security was passed in the 1930's there were people who cried that the socialists were taking over the country. When Medicare was passed in the 1960's there were people who screamed the same. Now nobody in this country wants either one of these programs touched -- any politician who tries to mess with them is "stepping on the third rail."

Barack Obama is far from being a true socialist. In truth he's a capitalist who's a little left of center.

Imhofe is going to have to accept the fact that the Republicans are not in power any more. Also that the Democrats won the election. The people have spoken.

If he wants to continue having hysterics rather than negotiating with the other party then he's going to marginalize himself even more.

At least the Democrats were not such babies when they were out of power.

It's amazing how angry the opposition can become when the American People CHOOSE a President.




It's amazing how they can be all about choice unless it has to do with Abortion or a Democratic President.

The bill would be unconstitutional! Government has no authority to take over healthcare. He plans to vote against it. So why would you need to read a 1,000 page bill that is unconstitutional and you are voting against it???

Any politician that votes for it needs to be impeached and tried for treason for violating their oath to uphold and defend the constitution.

Because, if you're going to be against something, you have to understand why it's bad.
