I love how they try to defend Pelosi as a “nice lady”. Tell me someone suggested that your supporters were nazi’s would you call that person a “nice person”. I doubt it.

BOR was way too easy on the RINO POS. Specifcially, he failed to call him out on Coburn's bogus contention that those who don't buy the mandated Obamacare insurance and then don't pay the subsequent fine won't be sent to prison.

Prison is precisely where they'd go, and Coburn knows it.

So if you don’t buy insurance, you don’t pay the penalty, then there what do they do to you?

double talk - Fox news is not biased in the way he was indicating! He is a RINO and has togo - we are talking about the last days of the Republic, as itis being attacked by the very people who swore to uphold the constitution - and Pelosi will gladly stand by when people are taken to camps because DHS decides that home schoolers, Christians, Iraqi Vets, Talk Show supports are potential ‘Terrorist’! And this guy wants to call her nice! Please give me a break

Remember this one from the election:

The fact is, is that I’m also friendly with Tom Coburn, one of the most conservative Republicans in the United States Senate, who during his campaign once said that it might be appropriate to apply the death penalty to those who carried out abortions.

I'm sure Tom is still good friends with Obama. He seems like a reach across the aisle kind of guy. It doesn't matter that he pulls back a shorter and shorter nub each time.

Doubt that a “nicy lady” would have staged that reprehensible walk through the Teapartyers with all her henchmen and carrying her oversized gavel to emphasize what an important person she was and provoke those citizens who had taken the time to register their opinions - Pelosi’s a small-minded, contemptuous, venomous fascist - sad that a physician and a big-shot journalist can’t recognize the fact......

Hey Tom, ever hear the expression “the iron fist in the velvet glove”? It’s a perfect description of the botox Bozo who represents San Francisco (aka the world’s largest outdoor insane asylum).

He still stands by the comment about Fox bias. Blames certain Fox shows overstating their case.

Can't name an instance but hey what does that matter. A RINO supreme.

Careful!

I called him a RINO on Sunday and got flamed non-stop by the Coburn-bots.

Okay, stop me where I go wrong here, Senator:

Under Obamacare, I must by health insurance, or pay a fine.

The fine is collected by the IRS in the form of taxes, or a garnish of my tax refund.

If I refuse to pay the IRS, then, what was it that happens to people who refuse to pay their taxes? OH YEAH, they go to jail. And not caribbean, dates and honey to break ramadan gitmo jail. We’re talking pound me in the #SS federal prison.

Of course, we can SURELY trust the Obama administration not to push it to that extreme, cant we?

He got caught telling his Senate Washington truth. He hates the opposition to Obamacare. He’s angry that the base rebelled against he and his rino pals cutting deals for death care. He was talking down to the “stupid” people at the town hall.

And his audience did not even have the brains to boo his nasty, elitist you know what off the stage. So, I guess he’s right. His voters are dumb as a post and won’t even stand up to him when he insults their intellegence and acts like a Rino in power. Disgusting all around.

He made the statement while he was defending Nancy Pelosi as "a good person."

She wants to take away everything you hold dear, but hey, she's a good person. She wants to force down your throat the most vile actions known to mankind, but hey, she's a good person. When the lifestyle chosen by others, with whom you disagree, brings expensive health consequences she's willing to force you to pay the cost, but hey, she's a good person. I wonder how he defines a bad person?

You won’t find a Senator that stands by conservative values better than Tom Coburn. And he’s no RINO. He DOES drive some of us Okies on the Right crazy from time to time with his tendency to treat the Bad Guys with kid gloves. Many of us from Oklahoma have routinely chastised him for not seeing The Enemy as we do, but I guess it’s his doctor’s training, as well as his Christian beliefs that cause him to behave more like a gentleman than a politician.

I moved to OkieHoma a couple of years ago from New Mexico, where even -at that time- Republican Pete Dominici was not representative of my values and philosophies. Much less Senator Bingaman! I am SO happy to be led by Senators Inhofe and Coburn here in OK, although they don’t always toe the same line as do I. Their VOTES, as well as their willingness to take on the tuff’ issues - THOSE are the standards by which I judge my U. S. Senators.

We must be careful not to destroy our own kind. Yes, Tom Coburn could have spoken of Pelosi and Fox differently, but in the long run, I’m more interested in how he votes. And what he does to defeat the Democrats who are determined to destroy this nation. Coburn fights for conservative values, even as he speaks softly in his social intercourse.

We could do with more Senators like Tom Coburn. Let’s not give The Enemy any more solace by turning on one who is one of our best...............
