Coburn Talks About Obama

In a Bloomberg TV interview, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) talked about his unlikely friendship with President Obama despite being "polar opposites."

Said Coburn: "I love the man. I think he's a neat man. I don't want him to be president, but I still love him. He is our President. He's my President. And I disagree with him adamantly on 95% of the issues, but that doesn't mean I can't have a great relationship. And that's a model people ought to follow."
 
He added: "Both of us are a product of our life experience. I mean, He came up one way, and I came up totally different, and I see things from a different perspective. That doesn't make him a bad man. The whole idea is, you can't change anybody you don't love. If you don't love them, you can't change them."
