Sen. Paul’s words lack ring of truth

I seldom agreed with Ron Paul, but I always knew what he was saying.

Certainly can’t say the same for his son. In his interview with the Sun, the senator from Kentucky blames the federal government (naturally) for the foreclosure crisis and the high unemployment rate.

When asked what the federal government can do to help with the economic recovery, he gives us this gem: “Another thing the federal government can do is make sure banks treat people honestly.”

I guess that passes for insight and fresh thinking in Mr. Paul’s mind. But there’s no doubt in my mind that he’d vote against any bill that the Senate tried to pass to “make sure banks treat people honestly.” Just another empty suit spouting cliches but wanting to be president. Please!
