  1. “Tom A Coburn, MD, beloved husband, father and grandfather“.

    There are a lot of MDs, husbands ,fathers and grandfathers and I’m sure the people in his life will miss him something awful but possibly the most distinctive description of him is “honest politician”.

  2. If not the best in the last 40 years 1 of the better ! I admit to being conservative; and have a Ronny/Barry bias.

    I thank God Tom was here 20 years ago. wish the leftist GWB had not been here!

    God only knows what GWB would have done with out “Dr. No!” to hold him back!

    Thank God tom was here. Karl and the libs hated and derided “Dr. No!”. Because he was in GWB’s way! BTW the lib Karl is still the main Fox pundit. That should tell you what you ned to know about the liberal GOP Fox. As Barry said 60 years ago, “NY values Republicans” He referred Teddy btw not another billionaire! Karl lies when he says Barry meant Roky! Read “Conscience of ….”! I did 60 years ago

    As noted above, unlike Bush, he was honest! How unique!
