Tom Coburn, Foe, Critic, and Friend of Obama

On the CBS program, 60 minutes, retired conservative Republican senator, Tom Coburn, of Oklahoma, said he was “proud” America had twice voted for Barack Obama as President. The vote showed America was a great country, largely free of the racial bigotry of which it is accused. Although a frequent foe and critic of Obama, Coburn said he was also a friend of Obama and had worked with him on many issues. Obama, Coburn added, is a serious man, not a glad hander, who deals easily with members of the opposition.
