Right Now – Rand Paul cancels Meet the Press appearance


Aaaww, shoot. I wanted him to keep talking his (Ayn) Randian nutjobbery.

UPDATE:  Turns out only two other people have done this, Louis Farrakhan and the Saudi Prince Bandar.  Pretty rarified company there Randy.

Rand Paul: Obama’s Criticism of BP ‘Un-American’ – ABC News


Paul’s defense of the oil company came during an interview as he tried to explain his controversial take on civil rights law, an issue that has overtaken his campaign since his victory in Tuesday’s GOP primary.

“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.”

The Obama administration has used the “boot heel” phrase to describe its commitment to holding BP accountable for the spill and its cleanup.

Just keep talkin’ Rand, just keep talkin’.

UPDATE:  I love his “accidents happen, oh well” attitude to a man-made environmental disaster.  BTW, BP has been far less than clear about their culpability in this case, and already started the finger pointing game.  They will, most likely, go the Exxon route and tie the money up in court until they get a sympathetic administration.  That’s one of the perks of being a multi-national-multi-billionaire who’s livelyhood wasn’t just destroyed by the one of the more powerful organizations on the planet.
