Coburn: My Words About Reid Not 'Appropriate'

By    |   Wednesday, 30 Oct 2013 02:14 PM

Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn said his "words weren't appropriate," offering a response to the controversy over his harsh description of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

"My words weren't appropriate. But, my frustrations are real," Coburn, a Republican, told "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.

Coburn called Reid, Democratic Senator from Nevada, "an absolute a—hole," during a meeting with fellow Republicans in New York.

He said on "Fox & Friends" that Reid is not running the Senate in the way it should be run. "Our founders designed the Senate to force consensus. And, you can't force consensus if you don't allow amendments, and you don't allow people's voices to be heard," Coburn explained.

"The Senate is not doing what it's supposed to do."
