(June 2) -- Paul McCartney is a man known for his words, usually when they're set to music. But he chose some special ones at the Library of Congress to praise President Barack Obama, before whom he will soon be performing: Let him be.
"I have to say I'm a big fan, he's a great guy," McCartney said at a Washington news conference Tuesday that was attended by politicians as well as journalists. "So lay off him, he's doing great."
Perhaps as an example of his global concerns, McCartney called the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico "a disgrace."
"I think most of us think it's a disgrace, and the fact that something like this can happen" is something that is "going to be addressed," he said.
Oh Paul ... BP is a BRITISH COMPANY!
BP has NOTHING to do with MEXICO!
British Petroleum (BP) is a UK company.
BP plc is a British global energy company which is the third largest energy company and the fourth largest company in the world. As a multinational oil company ("oil major") BP is the UK's largest corporation, with its headquarters in St James's, City of Westminster, London.

shut up, paul.
I’m sure everyone will listen to McCartney.
Hey Paul. Three things. No, STFU, and just sing.
I guess Paul McCartney’s off the list of greatest conservatives of the 20th century. Wait, this is the 21st. He can still be on it for the 20th century.
He's doing great? He's doing GREAT??? Paul, obviously either you don't read the newspaper or you're a complete moron, and in either case you're disqualified from commenting on current events.
Lay off him, he says. While McCartney adjusts his kneepads...
I never did like the Beetles and now I dislike them more.
I thought he would have assumned room temp by now.
They will in New England; where he is worshiped akin to a Kennedy.
The Beatles: Two down and two to go.
Shuddup and sing, Macca.
Yeah, Sir Paul, you’re such an excellent judge of character, your recent ex-wife a prime example.
I plan to lay off Obama in 2012. He’ll get his walking papers and a pink slip.
Throw the bums out.
Doing great? By what standard, Paul?
The Beatles made the movie HELP! as a tax dodge. They had to get out of England awhile as they were making so much Beatlemania money that their tax burden was high.
Screw million dollar Marxists.
Just a slight rearrangement of the word order and I would have agreed with Sir Paul: LAY HIM OFF.
I’ve always hated the Beatles.
A bunch of long haired maggot infested hippies.
ay off him, he’s doing great.”
What planet is the assh - - e living on?
