Bowling Green Daily News: Rand Paul blasts Obama’s nomination of Krueger (blast is an understatement)Submitted by the clover helix on Thu, 09/01/2011 - 15:02
Rand Paul just implied that Obama might be fitting the definition of "insane". Here he goes after Keynesians, war, taxes, jobs, and class warfare. I'm so glad we got him into the senate! A thoroughly enjoyable article!!!
"Following a speech to the Bowling Green Rotary Club on Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., harshly criticized President Barack Obama’s nomination of Alan Krueger to become chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers."
“You know they say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” Paul said. “Krueger was the architect for a lot of the policies we’ve already had - cash for clunkers, government paying money that they don’t have for people’s old cars and getting people to scrap old cars. A ridiculous idea that didn’t work. So (Obama) appoints this guy to now be his chief economic adviser. He really needs to rethink his philosophy.”
Later on he implies that class warfare works on people's envy to motivate them to sign up for redistribution policies...
“We need to not look enviously at the fellow next to us who has three cars and we have one car,” Paul said. “We need to get out there and work hard. We need to be educated. We need our kids to thrive. We can do it again, but you’re never getting there by envy. You’re not getting there by class warfare. You have to get there by producing things again and thriving as a country.”
