Rand Paul Knows ‘What a Pile On Feels Like’

By

Kentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul won’t go so far as to endorse Republican congressman Joe Barton’s position that forcing BP to create a $20 billion trust fund for victims of the BP oil spill is a “shameful … shakedown,” a position that caused an immediate, oppositional reaction from the White House and even from fellow Republicans. But Paul does see where Barton’s coming from:


I don’t want to pile on [Barton]. I know what that feels like. What I will say is I have never liked the tone of the president when he said things or his administration says things like he is going to put the boot on the throat of BP … If we put BP out of business, they can’t pay for the cleanup.”

What if it’s just a little ass-kicking?
