Rand Paul calls out the Corpulent Snake

Chris Christie is rapidly becoming the most hated Republican. It heartened me that Rand Paul called him out for his attacks on the NRA.

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.”

More Republicans should follow Rand Paul’s lead and go after the Corpulent fake Guido.

    Christie is always blunt and brash. He tries to argue unpopular opinions with the force of his personality. Here his personality is avoiding the NRA when he should be embracing it. But when I listen to Christie talk, he reminds me a lot of Bloombery. A big government control freak who thinks most of his subjects are too plain and stupid to make reasonable choices. So he has to make the choice for them.

    @ darkwords:
    he does not trust the people of new jersey with guns, therefore, he views them as subjects, not citizens.

    @ coldwarrior:

    I hope he realized that no candidate has a chance of winning the Republican nomination after attacking the NRA.

    Chris Christie did one good thing for New Jersey, he defeated that sociopath Jon Corzine.

    Sort of O/T:

    Americans ARE getting stupider.

    Sorry, but it’s true – and while it’s the grabbermint’s fault, it’s also people’s own fault for not using what little sense they do have.

    The longer people live under a nanny state the more incompetent they actually become. The cycle feeds on itself.

    You wouldn’t have wanted to see the series of brain-dead customers who came into the store today (of all colors and ages, BTW). I’m still trying to figure out how they managed to stumble out of bed, get their britches on, get into the car, and find their way to the store. I mean it – people who can’t figure out how to swipe a debit card, or count their own money, or fill out a check, or read simple text on a pin pad, or determine whether or not an item rang up at the correct price, or figure out what type of paper they want, and so on and so forth.

    And when they must push a button to answer the question displayed on the pin pad to request an email receipt versus a printed one, their mental processing breaks down entirely.

    It takes 1 minute or less to check one customer through, but the next three take 15 minutes apiece. And one of the three who took 15 minutes comes back again later to spend another 15 minutes to undo and re-do the transaction because he or she bought the wrong thing.

    I wish there were such a thing as aerial spraying of extra IQ points. We all need ‘em, believe me.
