Sen. Inhofe: "Recall Reid!"

From NewsMax:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should be recalled by voters over his "un-American” remarks about the Iraq war, Sen. James Inhofe declared.

Speaking with NewsMax pundit Steve Malzberg on "Bill Bennett’s Morning in America” radio program Wednesday morning, Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, expressed outrage over Reid’s criticism of the Bush administration’s Iraq policy, his call for a timetable for withdrawal and his assertion that the Iraq war is "lost.”

Asked if the Nevada Democrat should resign from his leadership position because of his comments, Inhofe said: "I think it’s more serious than that. I think there should be a recall . . . for saying something as un-American as that.”

He also said: "But it would have to emanate from the people who elected him.

"I can’t imagine that something isn’t going to happen.”

I can. Reid was just re-elected in '04, in a state that Bush carried the same night. The senile old coot may be an embarrassment, but the good people of Nevada keep sending him back.
