Rand Paul: I love Black people, but Mr. Obama is un~American

This is some funny stuff! After checking in on Progressive Bloggers and reading about the Rand Paul fiasco, I used the Google and found this.

From The National Pest GOP candidate Rand Paul walks into another minefield

Having spent the past two days blowing up his political reputation by criticizing 1960s civil rights legislation that allowed African-Americans to eat at the same private lunch counters as whites, the GOP’s newest Senate candidate has ventured off into other treacherous waters.

Specifically, the oil-soaked waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

In an interview (he just can’t stop talking!) Friday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, Paul said the Obama administration’s criticism of oil giant BP was “un-American.” We’re not exactly sure why, but given Paul’s world view, it’s likely because he thinks private businesses are so sacrosanct as to be beyond reproach from government – whether they discriminate based on race or preside over ecological disaster.
I have no idea who Sheldon Alberts is, but he ably dissects Paul's arguments in short order. Here is an example.
Paul: 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 may be, sometimes, accidents happen.

I mean, we had a mining accident that was very tragic, and I’ve met a lot of these miners and their families. They’re very brave people to do a dangerous job, but then we come in and it’s always someone’s fault. Maybe, sometimes, accidents happen.
Says Sheldon... "Accidents happen. In coal mines. On offshore oil rigs. People die. Guess there’s nothing more to be done about it."
