by Andrew Kaczynski
Former Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn spoke candidly about the current crop of Republicans running for president on Sirius XM radio Thursday, sharing some critical thoughts about Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz and Governors Scott Walker and Rick Perry, while heaping praise on Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, and Mike Huckabee.
Of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Coburn said “I don’t think that America will elect another Bush president.”
Coburn said Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul “scares me to death” on foreign policy. He added Paul didn’t “speak truthfully” about the NSA and he “would not vote for him for president.”
Of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Coburn called him “of all that are out there right now probably my favorite.”
