This illustrates the difference between right-wingers and left-wingers:
Kentucky’s Republican Senate candidate 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.”
“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,”‘ Rand said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I think that sounds really un-American in his criticism of business.”
On the oil spill, Paul, a libertarian and tea party darling, said he had heard nothing from BP indicating it wouldn’t pay for the spill that threatens devastating environmental damage along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
“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,” Paul said.
To right-wingers, America is corporate America and the military. To left-wingers and our founding fathers, America is the people.
