Inhofe on Bush: 'The Biggest Nothing'

Sen. Jim Inhofe, quoted in today's Tulsa World, has offered a blunt assessment of President Bush's declining political power.

Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and aide Karl Rove were on Capitol Hill yesterday to push the President's immigration plan. "Here it comes, [the] full-court press," Inhofe told the World. "And it was the biggest nothing."

Well put, Sen. Inhofe. But let's not confine this dismissive description to the immigration bill.

The "biggest nothing" is a useful way of describing a large part of the Bush agenda—six years of the "biggest nothing."

It will take the life's work of thousands of people to undo what Bush and company have wrought in the last six years...if they can. So it's less than the "biggest nothing," more like the biggest negative.

More Inhofe "news" today:

He claimed he overheard Senators Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer saying that they want a "legislative fix" for talk radio "the other day"...or was it or three years ago?

Hard for Inhofe to keep lots of things straight.
