Senator Tom Coburn told the WashPost’s Ezra Klein: “If President Obama is president again, those problems are still there and we have to solve them. He knows that. We’ve had conversations where he’s told me he’ll go much further than anyone believes he’ll go to solve the entitlement problem if he can get the compromise. And I believe him. I believe he would.”

Sigh.  I’m really not sure what has gotten into the good senator lately; attacking Republicans for being too partisan, voting for NAT-Gas subsidies, voting for Ex-Im Bank, endorsing tax increases – and now this?
