Sen. Coburn Takes a Swipe at Bush

Oklahoma's junior U.S. senator, Dr. Tom Coburn, is something of a maverick Republican, not unlike his Arizona pal, Sen. John McCain.

It's no surprise, then, that Coburn is supporting McCain for the Republican nomination, a nomination that seems virtually assured. (So long, Rev. Mike—the odds are against you.)

Coburn's maverick side was on full display this week when he spoke in support of McCain, taking aim at the current leader of the Republican Party.

Here's how Dr. Tom put it:

The fact is, we haven’t had a president over the last eight years who had the guts to take on the excesses of a Republican and Democrat Congress.
