The Hill newspaper has a piece today about an interview with Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, on Laura Ingraham’s radio program.

What’s Inhofe afraid of in refusing to meet with the duly elected President of the United States? Is he afraid the President’s “charm” will work on him and he’ll be transformed into something other than a right-wing extremist? Inhofe is so representative of what’s wrong in the country today. An elected official who refuses to talk to anyone who disagrees with his views and therefore is rendered useless in governing. Governing has always been about working with people of varying views and finding some middle ground. But to Inhofe there is no middle ground. Its my way or the highway. He is such a bitter old man. It is just sad for our state and our country.
Totally agree, Mr Inhofe has been an obstructionistfor a very long time. He is arrogant(just ask the airine employeeson the Washington to Oklahoma routes) & only is concerned with what will get him reelected. He has no constructive legislation & refuses to even listen to ideas different those he already holds.
RevDave is apparently ignorant of Obama’s history of refusing to work with republicans throughout his first term of office.
Which is worse, one senator who wants nothing to do with our duly elected president or one duly elected president that wants nothing to do with all the duly elected senators and representatives of the opposing party? RevDave is correct in saying “Governing has always been about working with people of varying views and finding some middle ground.” But our president’s first term showed he did little, if any, of that.
Obamacare, for example, was created with no republican input.
I’d say that proves that Obama is as guilty as anyone for not having any middle ground and having the “my way or the highway” attitude. And it is indeed sad for all states and the country.
