Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK): “We Have No Leadership”
Posted by Larry Doyle on May 2, 2012 6:28 AM |
I truly appreciate those in our nation who can properly frame the debate which MUST be had if we are to protect our country and the future for our children. I heard just such a man last evening. I compel you to listen to him.
Who is this man?
Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma. He laid out not only our greatest problem but also indicted the corrosive culture in Washington that has allowed this problem to grow. Coburn provides the barometer by which all of our supposed politicos should be measured.
What did Coburn have to say? A lot. Try these on for size…
“If we continue to lie and mislead the American people as to the seriousness and urgency of our problems…”
“If you want to test a man’s character, then give him power….we have failed our character test.”
“The greatest threat to our country is not Islamic terrorism or China or Russia, but is our national debt.”
The clip runs for 7 minutes. The echo and impact of his statements should carry throughout our land. Let’s make that happen.
Please share this clip with your friends, family, and colleagues so we can begin to take back our country and impose leadership on those who have shown themselves incapable of the same. Do not take my word on that….listen to Senator Tom Coburn.
