Flashback 2005: Obama compares litigation against EPA regs to ‘kid who murders his parents’
In a 2005 hearing, Senator Obama analogizes litigation against EPA regulations to patricide/matricide. The analogy sets EPA as the parents and 'people' or 'companies' as the murderous 'kid'. Obama: 'This reminds me a little bit of the kid who murders his parents and then complains about being an orphan.'
