Rand Paul: BP Criticism 'Un-American'

Rand Paul’s campaign manager really should get him away from a microphone for a few days: Following up on his “private businesses should be allowed to discriminate” remarks, the Republican nominee for the Senate from Kentucky said President Obama’s harsh words for BP “sounds really un-American.” He went on, “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 sometimes accidents happen.”
