Apart from being outrageously wrong, this latest news from Rand Paul verifies that he's either suffering from an epic meltdown or he's just plain crazy. On today's Good Morning America:
"What I don’t like from the president’s administration is this sort of, you know, “I’ll put my boot heel on the throat of BP.” I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business. I’ve heard nothing from BP about not paying for the spill. And I think it’s part of this sort of blame game society in the sense that it’s always got to be someone’s fault. Instead of the fact that maybe sometimes accidents happen."
Accidents happen? The CEO of BP didn't stub his toe on the coffee table. BP has successfully dumped tens of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, destroying both the environment and American jobs. And I'm fairly certain that they delayed plugging the leak in order to find a way to continue harvesting the oil.
So in addition to opposing a crucial section of the Civil Rights Act this week, Rand Paul is also defending BP? Unbelievable. Not surprisingly, Kentucky Republicans will love him for both.
