“This slug is up for reelection in 2012?

Toss him.”

Technically he may have a point (i.e., why should Obama direct spending, and thereby have the power to ignore his state?). But TOO LATE. Mr. Inhofe should have made that point to Mr. McCain and ESPECIALLY Mr. Stevens first.

This is not the fight to pick - GIVE IT UP, at least for now. Mr. Inhofe is a top-of-the-line conservative, don’t throw it away for a few “demonstration projects”.

I think the answer to these earmark champions is to cut the appropriations in proportion to the earmark cuts and reduce the deficit spending. The idea that not putting in earmarks just gives Obama the ability spend it how he sees fit is ridiculous. Cut the spending so there is nothing to spend arbitrarily.
