Rand Paul: Obama’s Criticism of BP is ‘Un-American’
Today Rand Paul said that President Obama’s criticism of British Petroleum is “un-American,” because after all, “accidents happen.”
Taking another unconventional stand, Kentucky’s Republican Senate nominee Rand Paul criticized President Barack Obama’s handling of the Gulf oil spill Friday as putting “his boot heel on the throat of BP” and “really un-American.”
“What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of, ‘I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP,’” Paul said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business.”
“And I think it’s part of this sort of blame-game society in the sense that it’s always got to be somebody’s fault instead of the fact that maybe sometimes accidents happen,” Paul said.
How’s that Tea Party mandate working out for you, GOP?
Rand Paul is the unrestrained id of the far right, and a wonderful gift to the Democratic Party.
