my words: well i do think this may have had something to do with obama getting the nobel, and i was all set to agree but there are 2 things i dont agree with Inhofe on
one is the F-22 . i forget the number we have, less than 200 but this decision was widely agreed on by many , i think the pentagon and macain, but i would have to read on it again, and also when i read about the missile defense program in Poland. the way it was explained made sence. they were going to replace it with a different system that may protect israel better, matter of fact i was reading on it, i think the new system uses the navy more, at first the russians were happy , now they want a explanation of what the replacement system will be, lol,,ok also the new system can be put in place alot sooner than what was cancelled, ,, i dont agree with his examples . i even had a picture lay out i was going to post on what all is involved in the replacement missile system, it was a good layout of how it will work.. one thing i dont know, like the f-22 most were for stoping it in congress i think, but any state making money off it im sure is ticked, what i dont know is was Inhofes state involved in any money off the f-22,, i will study on it again when i have time, but it made sence from even the pentagon, i do believe, and as i said i think macain voted against it, or was against continuing it, ok ill hush now, lol

OKLAHOMA CITY - Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, said Friday that he thinks President Barack Obama got the prize for "de-emphasizing defense in favor of multi-national cooperation,'' an approach with which Inhofe disagrees.
The senator cited the Obama administration's cancellation or cutbacks in weapons systems like the F-22 and the Army's Future Combat System and the cancellation of a missile defense program in Poland.
"Those are all (cuts) that really bothered me,'' Inhofe said in an interview.
Inhofe said he was concerned now that Obama, who is struggling with whether to authorize a significant increase in troops for Afghanistan, would be influenced by getting the peace prize.
