Rand: More Drilling Regulations Needed


Soon after certain segments of the media accused Rand Paul of latent racism for his comments regarding the Civil Rights Act, the Kentucky Republican took another drubbing for the claim, made on ABC's Good Morning America last week, that President Obama's criticism of BP struck him as "really un-American." Now Paul is taking a safer, if less libertarian line, on the BP disaster:

Paul, calling the spill "a great tragedy," told Tony Cruise on WHAS-AM that "I think we do have to have regulations, and we do have regulations in place but apparently wasn't enough.

"And sometimes even the best of regulations don't work because something unforeseen happens and that's what we have to figure out from this."
