Sen. Jim Inhofe is nobody's idea of a statesman. If he has a civil bone in his body, he's kept it well hidden for years.
So it is no surprise that the former Tulsa mayor (sad, we know…) plays political games whenever he can. Speaking to KRMG about the president's State of the Union speech, for instance, Inhofe didn't bother to think about the president's policies in a serious way.
Instead, he offered a hack attack, arguing that Obama is a really good liar. That's Inhofe's idea of leadership, apparently. As we said, Inhofe is not a statesman, or even a thoughtful politician. This the guy, after all, who brought Dick "Chicken Hawk" Cheney to Tulsa for a fundraiser.
