GOP Senator on Obama: “Do You Really Want to Have a Guy as Commander in Chief When You Can Question Whether or Not He Really Loves His Country?”

Sep 7, 2008 12:22pm

The Tulsa World reports that at a breakfast for the Oklahoma Republican delegation to the GOP convention, Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., said voters will ask themselves of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill.: "Do you really want to have a guy as commander in chief of this country when you can question whether or not he really loves his country?"

Inhofe later clarified his remarks in a statement, saying "Let me be clear, I am not questioning Sen. Obama’s patriotism, but you have to question why at times he seems so obviously opposed to public displays of patriotism and national pride, like wearing an American flag lapel pin.”
