Skip to comments.Rand Paul Calls For Chris Christie 'Beer Summit'
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 its gotten a little too personal, so were ready to kiss and makeup, the Kentucky Republican said to Foxs Neil Cavuto. I think its time to dial it down. I think weve 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.
Were going to have to patch things up. If we can sit down. Im 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. Well formalize it, well 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 its 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 itll 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.
Hope Senator Paul gets over the "be nice" approach.
(Face-palms in disgust)
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?
Note to Rand: bring a couple of dozen donuts.
Bringing in Christie's share of the beer!
Hee hee....Krispee can’t knock a *beer summit*...since his buddy 0 uses this format, as well.
How long since one politician shot another?2
Personally, I think we could use a little incivility in politics.
1. May 22, 1856. Brooks beat Sumner to a bloody pulp.
2July 11, 1804. Burr 1, Hamilton 0.
bump to that
A very good friend of mine works for Paul.
They’re both the real deal!
Rand Paul is one of the only people I trust in DC beside Ted Cruz.
(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.
I think wonder going be this
This is New Jersey we talking about
From your keyboard to God’s ears.
I’d vote for that ticket in a heart beat!
How queer. How cares about Christie?
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.
