Rand Paul To Chris Christie: Enough With The Temper Tantrums…

Posted by   + Show Post

 

Via Laura Ingraham:

Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) gave a wide-ranging interview, during which he attacked New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his criticism of the NRA and his grandstanding on Sandy aid, saying that they would hurt his chances during the Republican primary.

Paul claimed that Christie had “backed down” on gun rights: “You have some Republicans backing down like Christie backing down and criticizing the NRA, and I think that doesn’t do any good.”

When asked by Ingraham why Christie made the comments, he responded that they were politically calculated. “I think he may be solidifying his support with Democrats in New Jersey and maybe liberal Republicans.”

Paul warned Christie that his criticism of the NRA, as well as his criticism of fellow Republicans over the Sandy relief bill, would come back to haunt him if he made a presidential run in 2016. “I think criticizing the Second Amendment movement and the over-the-top ‘give me my money’ stuff, ‘I want all sixty billion now or I’ll throw a tantrum,’ I don’t think that’s going to play well in the Republican primary.”

“I think people need to think through what their position on these things are.” Paul concluded.

 You didn't see pictures like this coming out of Hurricane Sandy, did you? If you did, please show me:

 

Quoting 143myboys9496:

 Now we NEVER heard the end of it when Katrina victims were dis'd by the Bush admin. There were racial accusations being tossed all over the place.

WHY are we not hearing the SAME outrage?

What's different???? HHHMMM.....

Quoting sucker4myloves:

I'd throw a tantrum too if my state was ravaged by a natural disaster and my party WALKED OUT on a vote for disaster relief. Stupid.

 I find this to be a very interesting example of political double think.  Christie didn't criticise the NRA or the gun rights message.  He criticised the use of the President's children in the ad.  BIG difference.

Rand is clearly threatened by Christie.

I know, and isn't that just sad that some can't tell the difference.

This has been debunked so many times. SIGH

Bush could NOT do anything until asked by the governor of LA. He offered help BEFORE Katrina hit and was told they were just fine. If you want to blame people, the most blame goes to LA & NO officials.

If Bush is to blame, how come we didn't see the same problems and complaints from the other states that were hit? Oh, yeah, their officials were actually competent.

Was Katrina response perfect? No, but sandy's has been even worse, yet no blame to Obama. SMH


Quoting sweet-a-kins:

Dissed?



Bush left Americans to die in New Orleans



During the storm and after




Quoting 143myboys9496:

 Oh I'd be throwing an EPIC tantrum..no kidding.



Barry USED Sandy victims for the election..



I'm not quite sure which behavior is lower, using kids for policy gain, or outright lying to disaster victims...



Now we NEVER heard the end of it when Katrina victims were dis'd by the Bush admin. There were racial accusations being tossed all over the place.



WHY are we not hearing the SAME outrage?



What's different???? HHHMMM.....



I said this in another post, and I'll repeat it here, I can NOT understand how Barry stands so tall when he stoops to appalling lows.



Are we moving forward yet?

Nobody died days after the storm because they were abandoned to starve and drown

If they can't ever allow for criticism even from within their own party, they can never improve or learn. They will stagnate and die.

However, I don't think that will happen. I am hearing more and more Repubs speaking out about their party, and their need to change.
