Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., gave his farewell speech to the Senate Thursday, remarking on the solemn duty, not always solemnly carried out, of Senators to defend the Constitution.
As opposed, for example, to looking out for their own parochial state interests. Coburn is a famous pork-buster.
I wonder what Coburn thinks today of his old friend Barack Obama, the former professor of Constitutional law who seems to have actually studied some other country’s Constitution.
Coburn, who was known as one of the few senators Obama had any relationship with at all when his was in that body, told me soon after Obama was first elected president that everything Obama says is sincere. Such naiveté.
Coburn is a good man, and I assume he returns to Oklahoma a wiser one.
