Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., mixed praise and criticism of President Barack Obama and his fellow congressmen in a series of home state addresses Wednesday. At one point, describing his frustration with congressional colleagues, Coburn said, "It's just a good thing I can't pack a gun on the Senate floor," the Tulsa World reports
Congress consists of "a class of career elitists" and "cowards," he said. But Coburn also said the majority of congressmen are good people with good intentions.
As for Obama, he’s "very bright" and loves his country, Coburn said. But his policy prescriptions are "goofy and wrong." The president’s "intent is not to destroy, his intent is to create dependency because it worked so well for him," Coburn said. "As an African-American male," Obama received "tremendous advantage from a lot of these programs," he said.
