Obama and Inhofe Honeymoon Over

Politico : It was a love affair that could never be, President Barrack Obama and congressional republicans.

“It lasted about two days,” quipped Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), when asked if the honeymoon was over.

Why so soon?

Because, he said, conservatives are just “not receptive” to Obama’s agenda.

Yet even Inhofe, a true-believing conservative who represents a state in which Obama lost every county, is unwilling to take after his former colleague.

“He is very likable, he presented himself very well, and he seemed to want to be inclusive,” Inhofe said in a brief interview following Obama’s meeting. “But if the product is anything like we think it’s going to be, it’s not one that is going to be sellable to conservatives.”

i've never been so sick of bitter conservatives in my life. as if they didn't have 8 years in the sun. makes me want to say something really cutting and profound to jim inhofe like, "poo-poo on you."
