Never too early to start digging a hole for yourself. This is going to be a closely watched election as the future of the Tea Party may depend on it.

It's "Un-American" to slam a company that's responsible for the biggest ecological disaster in US history? This guy is even nuttier than his father....

"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."

Didn't realize that it was un-American to be disloyal to a British company.

Seconded. Ditto.

Artie, do you like the billions that company raked in but don\'t have the brains to plug the holes?

C'mon now...be realistic. Think about the millions out of the fishing industries. Think about the damage to the environment...think about all those millionaires raking in the dough, ignoring suggestions or regulations...they had quite a bit of problems before this rig went down.

They ignored it, laughing all the way to the bank.

We're left with the disaster that no amount of money can replace: the environment, the devastation of loosing your livelihood that supports the income of your family...do they give a hoot in BP or at BP?

If they were so involved with the profits, they would have invested in a safe-guard procedure long ago recommended...instead, they lied about the amount of oil that is purging in the ocean, threatening even the east coast.

You think that's ok? While they make billions in take home pay? And it's obvious they don't spend money on technology.

You favor that?

I don't understand...am I misunderstanding you? They can't plug the leaks because they don't know how far down they have to send mud and concrete....it was on the news. The amount of oil escaping was a lie from the beginning, to the middle to now. Face it,. they pocketed the money, don't give a crap....and the gov't will allow them off the hook.

In this day and age, I beg you to explain to me how BP had no money to plan ahead to prevent this from happening. It is headed for the east coast.

We used to be the leader in technology, but as dumbells in BP, they lined the pockets, and we still suffer...if not from higher gas prices (bloated) all of a sudden God showed their true intelligence.

GREED bites back.

Our world is sinking in the USA.

Artie, are you sticking up for this crap?

Where are the Americans that used to be the leaders in technology? That's all I want to know.

Save a buck? Is that what's bringing Greece down? LOL!

Remember "DAve the Rave" from the long-lost board who bragged his butt off about Thailand...showed so many beautiful pix's?

This a.m., on the news, it looks like Iraq.

Was it Thailand...it's been so long ago...but I remember the beautiful pixs...and "the place to live". Seems the whole world is out to destroy itself.

It's over a month...he had his usual WEDS night party slamming the U.S. The only thing Obama is good for is reading teleprompters and living the "HIGH LIFE". sorry, I would have kicked BP in the nuts less than a week after....cuz I would mean BUSINESS.

Did you expect him to meet with the BP officials himself, and ask questions? No,..he leaves it all up to his aides while he's entertaining, golfing, show-boating...sorry, it's the truth,. I never experienced in my life time a POTUS that didn't take things in his own hands and deal with a problem, instead of relying on his aids, and failing to respond. Sorry. As with the Federal U.S. Constitution, he dissed our own country over a freaking louse from Mexico, who blames the U.s. for bringing in weapons, while we sent money? Obama can go back to Kenya for all I care. He doesn't LEAD cuz he doesn't qualify. I bet Bush knew ten times more than this idiot. Obama can't face the press, can't hold outside press meetings, state of the union messages, cuz he himself doesn't know what the hell is going on. I liken him to Rev. Sharpton. All the bling around their neck, and move on to the next era "After I got what I needed from the people".

I dont like him, I go with my gut. He will not be there in 2012. Even his "cost-conscious money thrift" wife who preferred J-Crew moved on to dresses that are woth more than thousands a piece.

Nice show. While the POTUS' half brother lives in poverty....yeah, he gives a squat. Whether he would be a D or an R.... he's still linked to Blago...and those he took with him from the mob that did not or "forgot to" pay income taxes. Give me a break.

Every American knows they owe taxes except the fruit cakes in Washington. Thanks for demoralizing our U.S. Federal Constitution in front of Congress with that slime bag from Mexico, demanding we ignore our U.S. Constitution.

You know what? I hope every state follows AZ, cuz it looks like people are fed up with the gov't not doing there jobs...and taking it in their own hands. How do you explain having babies here illegally, but being allowed to get free services? How do you explain drugs coming in when you see them taping the idiots crossing the border with no respect?

And all you democrats, including Pelosi, are the worse freaking hipocrites I ever ran across. I want America back, but without you ignorant politicians that put Mexico before our own country and safety.

We have enough crooks in the politiical system and now they want to line their pockets allowing the POTUS of Mexico to dictate what our country should be doing while thousands get killed in his own country? Did anyone drug test him before the state dinner?

Flying in a cactus for a centerpiece, celebreties that are here illegal...you suck Obama, and your wife should get a life. No other first lady acted as stupid as she does...walking a cat-walk at parties. Money is no object with your parties, apparently. It's all on us, and not the issues and your a coward not sticking up for America.

I suggest you move your family there to live if it's so wonderful.

I actually can't wait til he leaves. I don't see him doing anything. Just his close friends advising the inexperienced idiot.

I'll bet he's "tired" after making a jackass of himself. So instead of appearing,he decides to "pull a Palin" on MTP....
Paul Cancels Sunday TV Appearance
Quote :
After a series of interviews on national TV that stirred an uproar over his views on civil rights and other issues, Rand Paul, the Republican nominee for Senate in Kentucky, has canceled a scheduled appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program on Sunday.

Betsy Fischer, the producer for the news program, said that Mr. Paul’s press secretary, Jesse Benton, had notified them a few hours ago that he would not be appearing on the show. She said Mr. Paul’s campaign had committed to the show on Wednesday, but that his aide said he was tired after a long week.

Efforts to reach a spokesman for Mr. Paul were not immediately successful.

Wow Shocked He must be really,really tired Smile
At the end of a rocky week, newly chosen Senate nominee Rand Paul (R-KY) has canceled a planned interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" citing exhaustion. It's only the third cancellation from a major guest in 62 years, the show's Executive Producer Betsy Fischer said in an interview this afternoon. "It is a big deal when somebody cancels an appearance," she said.

Yup. Thanks to the continued dumbing down of our education system. Our courts keep arguing about the legalities of creationism in the classroom and our science standings keep falling while the rest of the world's scientific industries laugh all the way to the bank.

Hmm... there's my problem. I haven't been looking for jobs in creationism.

Rand Paul faces possible challenge, staff shake-up
A week after a come-from-behind victory over the GOP's establishment candidate in a Kentucky Senate primary, Rand Paul is facing a possible challenge by the Libertarian Party and is shaking up his staff after comments he made about racial segregation caused a firestorm.

Despite his pedigree as the son of former Libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul, Libertarian Vice Chairman Joshua Koch said Rand Paul has betrayed the party's values with stands he's taken, and they were considering finding a candidate to run for the seat.

It was a startling development that could play a role in shaping the outcome of the race in November by siphoning votes from Paul to the benefit of his Democratic opponent, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.

Kentucky Libertarian Party Chairman Ken Moellman said in a later e-mail that Koch was not speaking for the party, although Moellman didn't rule out the possibility that a Libertarian would enter the race.

Flip-flopping Rand Paul now supports earmarks
Quote :
Let the teahadist backpedaling begin ...From senate candidate Rand Paul's website:
Rand Paul has made a ban on wasteful earmark spending in Washington D.C. one of the key points of his campaign ...“The Tea Party movement is an effort to get government under control,” Rand said. “I’m running to represent Kentuckians and to dismantle the culture of professional politicians in Washington. Leadership isn’t photo-ops with oversized fake cardboard checks. That kind of thinking is bankrupting our nation.
And today, Senator-elect Rand Paul:
In a bigger shift from his campaign pledge to end earmarks, he tells me that they are a bad “symbol” of easy spending but that he will fight for Kentucky’s share of earmarks and federal pork, as long as it’s doled out transparently at the committee level and not parachuted in in the dead of night. “I will advocate for Kentucky’s interests,” he says.
So as long as the (so-called) "bankrupting [of] our nation" is transparent, Rand Paul is down with it. Comedy.
Suckers.
Let the walk back begin. :popcorn:

It had already started:

Quote :
Early in his campaign, Dr. Paul, the son of the uncompromising libertarian hero Ron Paul, denounced Medicare as "socialized medicine." But this spring, when confronted with the idea of reducing Medicare payments to doctors like himself — half of his patients are on Medicare — he balked. This candidate, a man ostensibly so against government power in all its forms that he wants to gut the Americans With Disabilities Act and abolish the departments of Education and Energy, was unwilling to reduce his own government compensation, for a very logical reason. "Physicians," he said, "should be allowed to make a comfortable living."

. . .

In their first interview, Maddow had softballed Paul and played nice, treating him like what he was at the time — an interesting fringe candidate with the potential to put a burr in Mitch McConnell's ass. But now, Paul was a real threat to seize a seat in the U.S. Senate, so Maddow took the gloves off and forced him to explain some of his nuttier positions. Most memorably, she hounded him about his belief that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an overreach of government power. The money exchange:

Maddow: Do you think that a private business has the right to say we don't serve black people?

Paul: Yeah. I'm not in favor of any discrimination of any form. But what about freedom of speech? Should we limit speech from people we find abhorrent? Should we limit racists from speaking?

Paul was pilloried as a racist in the national press. Within a day he was completely reversing himself, telling CNN, "I think that there was an overriding problem in the South so big that it did require federal intervention in the Sixties." Meanwhile, he was sticking his foot in his mouth on other issues, blasting the Americans With Disabilities Act and denouncing Barack Obama's criticism of British disaster merchant BP as "un-American."

Paul's libertarian coming-out party was such a catastrophe — the three gaffes came within days of each other — that he immediately jumped into the protective arms of Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party. "I think he's said quite enough for the time being in terms of national press coverage," McConnell said, explaining why Paul had been prevailed upon by the party to cancel an appearance on Meet the Press. Some news outlets reported that Paul canceled the appearance after a call from Karl Rove to Adams, who concedes that he did speak with Rove around that time.

Soon after, McConnell threw yet another "Bailout Ball" fundraiser in Washington — only this time it was for Rand Paul. The candidate who just a year before had pledged not to accept money from TARP supporters was now romping in bed with those same politicians. When pressed for an explanation of Paul's about-face on the bailouts, Adams offers an incredibly frank admission. "When he said he would not take money from people who voted for the bank bailout, he also said, in the same breath, that our first phone call after the primary would be to Senator Mitch McConnell," says Adams. "Making fun of the Bailout Ball was just for the primary."

With all the "just for the primary" stuff out of the way, Paul's platform began to rapidly "evolve." Previously opposed to erecting a fence on the Mexican border, Paul suddenly came out in favor of one. He had been flatly opposed to all farm subsidies; faced with having to win a general election in a state that receives more than $265 million a year in subsidies, Paul reversed himself and explained that he was only against subsidies to "dead farmers" and those earning more than $2 million. Paul also went on the air with Fox News reptile Sean Hannity and insisted that he differed significantly from the Libertarian Party, now speaking more favorably about, among other things, judicious troop deployments overseas.

Beyond that, Paul just flat-out stopped talking about his views — particularly the ones that don't jibe with right-wing and Christian crowds, like curtailing the federal prohibition on drugs. Who knows if that had anything to do with hawkish Christian icon Sarah Palin agreeing to headline fundraisers for Paul, but a huge chunk of the candidate's libertarian ideals have taken a long vacation.

He's a whore just like the rest of 'em.

Senator Rand Paul Touts False Claim From ’9/11 Truth’ Conspiracy Site
Quote :
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is no stranger to extreme positions or conspiratorial thinking. But Paul sunk to a new low last night, using his Senate Twitter account to promote a false report from one of the world’s most noxious conspiracy websites.

Paul appeared amused by an article on infowars.com suggesting the National Weather Service is stockpiling ammunition:
Quote :
@SenRandPaul
Mad a/b the weather or bad forecasts? I wouldn't complain, Nat'l Weather Svc just ordered 46k hollow-point bullets bit.ly/NAd071
14 Aug 12

This story is false (a point that Business Insider, who also linked to the story, should correct). In reality, the ammunition was ordered by the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement, but a clerical error in the paperwork indicated otherwise. Worse, the article that Paul linked to was published on the homepage of what the Anti-Defamation League calls “The Conspiracy King.”

Alex Jones, the popular radio host who runs InfoWars, routinely traffics in outlandish and pernicious conspiracy theories. Jones is an unapologetic 9/11 Truther who believes that something called the Bilderberg Group (which purportedly controls President Obama) is plotting to take over the United States while Federal Emergency Management Agency is planning to put Americans in concentration camps. Indeed, InfoWars’ story about the fictitious NWS ammo order is part of its broader focus on the Department of Homeland Security’s plan to wage war on the American population.

That a United States Senator would lend even a smidgen of credence to this conspiratorial nonsense is disgraceful. But perhaps we shouldn’t be a surprise: InfoWars’ biggest mainstream booster is Matt Drudge, one of the most influential news sources on the American right. Naturally, InfoWars’ story on the NWS ammunition order was Drudge’s top link yesterday.
Meanwhile the GOP has slated him for a speaking spot at their convention. Rolling Eyes If you thought the clown car primary debates were fun just wait until Tampa where he'll also share the stage with fellow lunatic,Rick Santorum.
