Rand Paul is HELLBENT on destroying whatever positive is left of Ky’s Image

Rand Paul

Good lord, the teabagging extremist is at it again. This morning on Good Morning America he said that no one – especially President Obama – should criticize BP for the disaster they are wreaking on our country.  His take?  “It’s sounds un-American” to criticize business.  Here is a company that is literally destroying the livelihoods of tens of thousands of people and we shouldn’t criticize them?   This is a company whose negligence is destroying a whole eco system and we shouldn’t criticize them?  This is just sickening.

And when people die in negligently run coal mines, well it’s just wrong to try to fix blame.  “We had a mining accident that was very tragic. … Then we come in and it’s always someone’s fault. Maybe sometimes accidents happen,” he said.

Tell that to the widows:  “Accidents happen.”  I guess holding mine owners accountable is  out of the question, cause really, who can prevent accidents?  Sickening.

I guess it’s his strategy to recover from the train wreck that was his announcement that he was against civil rights.  And then his hasty “change of position” that he actually was FOR civil rights.  Yeah, that sounded convincing.

He’s been a national figure for 72 hours and he is managing single-handedly to put Kentucky in the absolute worst possible light.  And this is not abstract – it hurts us here in Lexington.  The “talent” we hope to keep and attract has to be repulsed by this.  (but if they aren’t, then we don’t want them – that will repulse the talent we do want….)

Are the teabaggers in this state so morally bankrupt that they enjoy seeing this happen?
