Senator Inhofe seems to be in a constate state of "outrage". He certainly keeps me in one. Look at why he voted against the intelligience bill
(Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (S.2845));
"Many people would be outraged to know that there is a 3.5 mile gap in our fence line with Mexico that exists solely to preserve the environment of five birds that are protected by the Endangered Species Act. The provision in the bill to patch this hole was removed because apparently repairing our border will disturb these five animals."

Inhofe also recently blamed President Bill Clinton for the disaster in Iraq.
"Eight years of Bill Clinton decimated the military to almost half of what it was in 1990," he said during a stop in Muskogee.

And yet 4 years of George Bush hasn't shown any improvement as Inhofe admits;
Inhofe said that during war, the U.S. historically spends 5.7 percent of its gross domestic product on military needs.

"Today it's 3.8 percent," he said. "In order to give us what we need, we'd need to spend 4.5 percent of the GDP on military."

Well why aren't we doing that Senator? Is it because tax cuts for the rich are much more important than protective gear for those "boots on the ground" as you refer to our soldiers?
