Here are several audio clips from GOP Sen. Tom Coburn's Q&A with constituents about the new ObamaCare Law, where Coburn went out of his way to defend Nancy Pelosi and the intent of Democrats. He also took shots at Fox News several times:
Coburn Says Use of IRS to Enforce ObamaCare Not Intended to Put People in Jail. . .
Coburn Says Nancy Pelosi is a "Good Person"; Warns Audience Not to be "Biased by Fox News" . . .
Coburn Urges to Stay Informed from Many Sources . . .

Wonder what it takes for him to consider a person ... not good?
He must be blind, deaf, and not informed.
have you seen this?
I agree. Unfortunately most people going to hell have a notion it isn't so, God is love, there is no hell, and they need do nothing, cause it is what they think.
God help the lost, in Jesus name. amen.
I can't seem to recall a Democrat ever supporting Dennis Hastert or Newt Gingrich like this. The Red Queen must have some dirt on Tom.
What must be in Coburn’s FBI file?
Somebody is blackmailing Tom........
Allow me to modify my initial observation—Republicans in the “Ruling Class” will always defend a Democrat that is under fire.
It should be a wonderful consolation to those in jail or threatened with jail time that the government didn't really mean it.
I liked Tom Coburn. Tom Coburn WAS one of the few in Congress that I had any respect for. Not anymore.... the man is a complete fool.
I do not give a hoot what he ever says or does again, about anything, he’s toast with me.
I am really learning to hate politics...... and ALL of these two faced bastards.
Can you spell RINO?
Sure. C O B U R N.
Look under RINO in the dictionary and you’ll find Coburn’s photo.
The RINOs are more afraid of the Tea Party than of the Democrat Party.
Sad day for Conservatives in the Republican Party.
What’s up with “Freedom’s Lighthouse?” Why is he gunning for Coburn?
He knocks Fox for being biased and then says he reads two newspapers for balance....The New York Times and The Washington Post (and sometimes the Wall St Journal).
This really speaks volumes for why our Country finds itself in it's current crisis.
If this is supposed to be one of our brightest, most Conservative Republicans, we have no chance.
He will regret those words when things start collapsing around the rats. The GOP needs to decide which side of history they want to be on.
I’m sure that in some alternate reality she might be. Not in this one.
I guess by nice Coburn means Pelosi knows how to use her company manners and not spit or scratch in public. And smiling for the camera while advocating the murder of babies in the womb, yeah thats real nice too.
They have something on him. When does his self-imposed term limit reach its limit?
We then have no choice but to put the Coburn critter on the “toast” list.
If he got anywhere near that sub-slime b*****, I no longer consider him human.
“Most liberals are good are good hearted and well intentioned.”
I disagree. Most that I’ve met are filled with hate and bitterness. They are envious of those better off, and condescending to those who are not.
They use government as an excuse for their own sins. They want government to care for the poor, so that they do not have to. They want government schools because they don’t want to educate their own kids - assuming they didn’t abort them first.
“19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualitieshis eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldnt worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each others bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.” - Romans 1
The Apostle Paul met some of the same liberals I have...
Someone has been in the Senate too long.
Talking down to the “dummies” (that would be non-liberals) who don’t see the vision of the annointed properly like a freakin’ school marm. The crowd should have booed his nasty, disrespectful self off the stage! Who listens to whom? The elected leader is stuck in gaga land in the Senate and knows nothing outside of his little circle; the peole he’s supposed to represent live life in the State.
I am not surprised to hear him say he reads two newspapers a day; The New York Times and The Washington Post, as if this makes him well informed. Then realizing those are not ‘fair and balanced’ sources to anyone except a Rino in the Senate, he drops in “sometimes the Wall Street Journal.” What an ass. Why did not they boo him when he talked down to them? Who does he think he is!!!!
I’ve known a lot of liberals over the years. I’ve known and worked closely with literally hundreds of Alinsky organizers and thousands of Alinsky activiist volunteers.
They are no more filled with hate and bitterness than conservatives ... or non-political. I’ve known some very hateful conservtives ... and hateful moderates too. I agree that hateful is not “good hearted”.
You say they want government to care for the poor, so that htye do not have to. My experience is that some (but not all) liberals are sincere in their mis-guided desire to have the government play santaclaus. When they take employment as teachers, social workers, religous workers, etc they are truly sincere in their motivation to help people.
This discussion started with Coburn’s comment on Pelosi. Frankly, I don’t know Pelosi and can’t say if she is good hearted or not. But I do know that many liberals are truly sincere ... sincere but mis-guided.
