This is BS, there were many Rockefeller and Goldwater Republicans long after the Reagan/Bush Sr. Reagan trully beleived in a big tent party and brought in members from all across the party like Sen Mark Hatfield and John Chafee into the discussions and meetings. Unlike Bush who ostracized on purpose Jim Jeffords speeding up his leaving the party and began the era of purge the moderates in 2001.

That's sad when you can link Coburn and the word liberal in any sense.

Yeah it is actually a crime to connect him in any way with liberalism, but he would meet my definition of economic liberalism.

There is nothing liberal about the greatest patriot in the Senate.  Coburn is anti welfare, anti nanny state, anti liberal in every way.  Plus like a true conservative he wants every dime accounted for and he wants people to answer for how they spend.

He is the anti pork crusader.  How can you call that liberal.  Liberal = pork.

Ever heard of Thad Cochran, or Saxby Chambliss? Both are conservatives, both are porkers.

John Hoeven has never particularly shied away from fiscal spending, especially for education and infrastructure projects.

North Dakota is certainly better off for it. Hoeven for President in 2016!!!!
