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.

Have fun in your make believe fantasyland devoid of facts. I'd c&p the truth for you, but I doubt it would fit in your brain filled with Bush hatred.

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

What a lie to tell



Watching American citizens state and drown on the streets on tv



Very patriotic according to republicans




Quoting DSamuels:

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?





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.

You can't educate those who bow at the feet of Obama.  In her skewed little world, everything is the fault of the repubs, Christians, conservatives, etc.  If she ever took off those rose colored glasses, her eyeballs might fall out when she would be forced to see him for the incompetent failure he is.

Sweets is just one of millions who don't want to face the truth about Obama, and continue to blame Bush if they get up on the wrong side of the bed in the morning.  Sad, isn't it......

 He SAID "no red tape" "You'll get whatever you need"....to date, they've gotten a truckload of red tape and shit.

The point is NJ has gotten NOTHING in way of disaster relief from the fed gov't.

Of course giving them relief is the right thing to do..I don't see Barry advocating for that since the election...

Quoting sucker4myloves:

So...because Obama said he wanted relief for the sandy victims, he's bad? He's using them? I think if he wants to give them relief, damn the reasons and give it, it's the right thing to do. That's what I get out of the whole thing.

Funny how it's a temper tantrum when some disagree but righteous outrage if they do.

It seems the man I kept reading the GOP was practically begging to run last year is now a RINO for daring to speak up and not toeing the party line. That GOP 'Big Tent' seems to be shrinking as more moderates or at least more reasonable people speak up.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

 How did Bush, leave them there? Many decided to "ride it out", not to mention that the Mayor and Govenor couldn't get along to evacuate New Orleans. He also didn't declare evacuations mandatory until it was almost too late.

They KNEW those levees were certified only to CAT 3...The evacuation should have been mandatory from the git go.

I'm not saying Bush did all the right things after the fact, most definitely he did not. Our gov't failed Louisiana.

So that makes it OK with what's happening to NJ and Long Island?

 I NEVER SAID KATRINA VICTIMS DIDN'T DESERVE RELIEF!!! I NEVER SAID BUSH TREATED THEM FAIRLY. THEY GOT A RAW DEAL, MOST DEFINITELY!

SO BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED IN LA, SANDY VICTIMS IN NJ AND NY DON'T DESERVE RELIEF???

Because THAT is what your reply says to me.

Which is completely outrageous.

According to Christie, yes, the President was awesome with Sandy response

Now, after Katrina and our citizens were dead and some still dying he choose to keep the miliary out

And we watched out fellow citizens , babies, elderly, sick etc drown, starve and beg for help...

Crazy ass Sean Penn got there before our government handing out water ..that's a damn tragedy

 So again, I'l ask you..does that mean that NJ and NY victims don't deserve relief??

An eye for an eye?

Shouldn't we as a gov't, country and it's people learn from our mistakes???

The president has NOT been awesome with relief...oh yes, he was responsive BEFORE the election...the vote for NJ relief has been tabled twice since election...
