Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) says he supports Democratic Sen. Joe Manchins re-election because he believes Manchin is not beholden to short-sighted political interests.
Coburn recently gave $250 to Manchins re-election campaign.
I think he votes thinking about the long-term interests of the country. We dont agree on everything but hes a good guy, Coburn told The Hill.

And then the Republican Party has the nerve to ask for donations.
I think in the context of the US Senate , the long-term interest is not Harry Reid as Majority leader. Okay, Manchin won’t admit he will vote for BHO. Maybe he will not, but will he definitely vote for Dingy Harry?
This. Manchion is an obvious fraud. Coburn just gets stranger as the years pass on by.
Sorry. That doesn’t fly. It should be apparent to everyone right now these Democrats march lock step with one another. Manchin belongs to a party that supports gays rights, Planned Parenthood, environmental wackos, higher debt, on and on and on. He belongs to a party that takes great pains to refuse to let the Republicans put forth amendments and even locks them out of crafting bills. When Manchin gets up on television and start doing the true and honorable thing by taking concret action about Fast and Furious, shady regulatory dealings of this administration, or dubious appointments then we could talk. People are absolutely crazy to support a Democrat and any Republican who supports a Democrat should be called into question about what they truly believe and support. After all, Tom Coburn is supporting all the Democrats stand for.
George Bush rehabilitates Bill Clinton by appointing him co-chairman with his own father on international relief missions.
John McCain tells faithful Republicans during the campaign that they need not fear Obama as President.
We either have a true two-party adversarial system or we have rule by a super party of elites.
What happened to Coburn? Didn’t he used to be decent?
Anyone who is looking to DC for a solution to the problems that DC creates is out of their mind.
This election is just a fight between which bunch of degenerate crooks liars and thieves gets to control the cash extorted from taxpayers by the IRS, nothing more, nothing less.
What has the GOP done to get rid of the IRS and repeal the 16th amendment?
Not a goddamned thing.
The Republicans like to talk tough about taxes, but are part of the same Federal Apparatus the Democrats are.
The IRS extortionists have nothing to fear from the blowhards in the GOP
we have a rule by a super party of elites.
Did I guess right ? What do I win ??
We ARE the STUPID PARTY!!
You win four more years of socialism and moral decline.
Prepping for a Manchin party switch if the Republicans win the Senate majority.
Coburn better know something we don’t, and I hope your right, but still....we are at the most critical time in this nations history for the need to take back the Senate and this IDIOT RINO decides to donate to a sitting Democrat?? I haven’t donated to the GOP since Bush’s illegal alien amnesty fiaso in his 2nd term, and I never will now.
Great. A party switcher from the Lieberman wing.
Manchin would never do that. There’s no Republican party in WV worth mentioning. Manchin, his family and most of his cronies have been mobbed up for years.
Has this guy lost his mind?
“or we have rule by a super party of elites”.
Indeed. Until we over rule it.
For only $250? Money goes much further in WVA? :)
Coburn is going RINO big time for a while. Manchin voted lock step with the DEMS the minute he was elected to the Senate. However,he needs to stand up for the coal miners of WV, but, will he? I’m disgusted with Coburn and have been for the past few years when he started going neo on us.
Maybe he thinks he’ll never lose his Senate seat. Oklahoma voters will have to decide that for him. Oklahoma was the only state in the union during the 2008 election in which all of its counties voted RED. (McCain/Palin) Perhaps the good voters of that state need to put a fire under their boy.
I have donated to Colonel Allen West who is running in my district.
As for the RNC, I send their donation pleas back and tell them when they QUIT supporting RINO pukes maybe then will I give them anything.
