Today, Tea Party Republican Rand Paul took the side of BP against the people of Louisiana.
Determined to protect the British corporation, the Tea Party'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."
Paul made his comment on Good Morning America. "I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business." Psst...Rand, BP's British; Louisiana's American. Do you understand the difference?
Paul further explained, "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."
So what does “sometimes accidents happen” mean in Tea Party language? It means: Hey Louisiana, get over it, sometimes sh** happens.”
