Krauthammer: Barton Made "The Most Politically Stupid Statement" Of Year

Charles Krauthammer: "I think that wins the award for the most politically stupid statement of the year. We can retire it right now, in June."

"You don't express sympathy for a corporation that's sort of soiled and destroyed, practically is destroying, the Gulf Coast. What you can do is say we don't like the precedent of the federal government using its leverage and threats of prosecution to force companies into acting against what might be their own interests. It's not a good precedent. We had to do it in this case because we want to protect the income of the people in the Gulf who've suffered."

"It's a tradition which is a bad one now, and it ought to stop after this one."
