Rand Paul Calls For Chris Christie 'Beer Summit'
Politico ^ | Updated: 7/31/13 5:17 PM EDT

Posted on 07/31/2013 5:41:59 PM PDT by drewh

Sen. Rand Paul once again put forward his desire for a truce with Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday afternoon, inviting the New Jersey politician for a beer so that they could “kiss and makeup” and discuss ideas.

“With Gov. Christie it’s gotten a little too personal, so we’re ready to kiss and makeup,” the Kentucky Republican said to Fox’s Neil Cavuto. “I think it’s time to dial it down. I think we’ve got enough Democrats to attack and maybe Republicans can quit attacking Republicans.”

When asked about a possible, Paul-Christie 2016 ticket, which some have hypothesized, Paul smiled, and then invited Christie publicly for a sit-down.

“We’re going to have to patch things up. If we can sit down. I’m inviting him for a beer. Anytime he would like to come down and sit down at the pub right around the corner from the Senate and have a beer,” Paul told Cavuto. “We’ll formalize it, we’ll put it in writing but I think we could sit down and have a beer and mend things.”

“At times people have said Chris Christie has some libertarian leanings so it’s actually a little ironic that we see him criticizing libertarians in the party for libertarian influences, because some libertarians actually had high hopes that he had some libertarian leanings,” Paul added, joking that maybe they could meet on neutral ground, like Philadelphia, if necessary. “The offer to have a beer with Chris Christie stands. If he wants to break bread and see if we can find some common ground, I think it’ll help the party to not have us feuding.”

Paul first extended the proverbial olive branch to Christie on a radio show Wednesday morning, hoping to bring pause to a week-long feud over national security and “pork barrel spending.”

You know, for real men that is something you just DO.

You don’t announce your intent, you just pick up the phone and say “Hey — time to bury the hatchet over some brewskis — your city or mine?”

This posturing is just ghey.

Christie is just another loud-mouthed prick.....

Hope Senator Paul gets over the "be nice" approach.

Paul is more shrewd than I think people are giving him credit for. He’s playing a game here. This Christie flap was planned, and the drawdown is just as planned.

So what is the goal?

They can both agree to support fag marriage and open borders and fool the conservative voters or what?

We don't get near enough of that these days. How long has it been since a cane beat-down on the Senate floor that left a senator almost dead?1

How long since one politician shot another?2

Personally, I think we could use a little incivility in politics.

Rand Paul is one of the only people I trust in DC beside Ted Cruz.

Paul/Cruz 2016!

(I will never pull the lever for Christie or any RINO equivalent......I have had enough of that nonsense)

The whole scheme is meant to help McConnell and Christie.

The same reason Christie wasn’t at CPAC.

If he really wants Christie to show up it should be a “beer and brats” summit.

Couldnt resist - try to stay away from the personal remarks, but...

and YES, I am a fatty too.

Classy checkmate for Rand. He beat Christie to the high road in the posturing battle that he, as I understand it, didn’t start.

Anyone making RINO’s nervous and noisy pleases me very much.

He is in effect calling Christie out. Publicly. A fairly shrewd move. Alas the days of calling other men out to meet them at sunrise at the Field of Honor are over.

In truth I sense this to be political theater and manufactured controversy at it’s core more than anything.

Good cop/bad cop ploy. It's like wrestling soap opera theatrics.

I’ll stick with my first observation...Christie is a prick.
