Barack Obama Gets An Unlikely Defender: Ron Paul
Rep. Ron Paul, the libertarian Republican lawmaker from Texas, said that people were expecting too much from the president in his ability to react to the ongoing spill into the Gulf.
“I’m a pretty big critic of the president,” Paul said during an appearance on “Imus in the Morning” on the Fox Business Network, “but I just don’t see the justification for coming down hard on the president.”
“I think it represents the idea that the American people think the president is everything to everybody that he should fix an oil leak,” Paul added.
Or, as James referred to it last week, the Cult of the Presidency.
