Republicans saving the world!

Since I've criticized Republicans here one or two times over the history of this blog, it's important to praise members of the GOP who do good things. Here are three great examples!

Tom Coburn!

The report found millionaires enjoy about $30 billion worth of “tax giveaways” and federal grants every year — almost twice NASA’s budget, the report notes.

“From tax write-offs for gambling losses, vacation homes and luxury yachts to subsidies for their ranches and estates, the government is subsidizing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Multimillionaires are even receiving government checks for not working,” Coburn said in a statement Monday. 

Jon Huntsman!

“We diminish our standing in the world and the values that we project … when we torture … waterboarding is torture. We dilute ourselves down like a whole lot of other countries, and we lose that ability to project values that a lot of people in corners of this world are still relying on the United States to stand up for.”

John McCain!

The Republican senator who is best known for criticizing the practice, and the man who challenged Obama in 2008, expressed his disappointment Monday morning as well.

"Very disappointed by statements at SC GOP debate supporting waterboarding," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tweeted. "Waterboarding is torture."

I'm sure some of the Republicans who visit the site occasionally will join me in praising these three brave men.
