Skip to comments.Christie brushes off Paulís beer proposal [NJ Governor is a jerk]
Posted on 08/01/2013 4:22:57 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday night hes a little too busy with his re-election bid this year to have a beer with Sen. Rand Paul.
The senator from Kentucky made the pitch earlier in the day, hoping to ease tensions that have escalated in the past week between the two potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders.
But Christie gave no indication he plans to take up Paul on the effort.
Im running for re-election in New Jersey, I dont really have time for that at the moment. If I find myself in Washington, Ill certainly look him up, Christie said on New Jersey 101.5. But Ive got work to do here.
Paul made his peace offering during a television interview, saying hes ready to kiss and make up, one day after he called Christie the king of bacon when it comes to government spending. Pauls reference to Christies requests for billions in federal relief aid after Superstorm Sandy slammed into his state came in an interview with CNNs Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.

What an ass.
Christie really is a democrat!
A very cocky one at that. He annoys the heck out of me.
Does it really take a blow hard to push back on unions?
Seems Governor Walker in WI did without all the drama,
and quite a bit of class.
He lost me forever when he ASS KISSED 0. . . .
He’s not a team player. Only out for himself.
Yup! Betting he runs in the primaries against Hillary as a demonrat.
All anyone in the GOP needs to do during the primaries is show photos of Christie and his butt buddy Obama arm in arm in campaign ads. That will sink him fast.
The Paul interview was for me embarassing because my favorite news guy Cavuto egged Paul on and in fact inserted himself into the fray.
Cavuto’s strong desire to be the peacemaker dissolved his fair and balanced facade. He is a Republican.
The outcome was good however. Common ground was found, Philadelphia perhaps. Maybe Christie knew Philadelphia was dangerous for anybody that is white and nonunion
Christie will come around. The beers will be consumed
Why have any respect for him to start with? He's a NJ liberal with an R after his name. When he first told the teachers' unions that he wasn't going to yield to their every demand, a number of silly freepers started gushing over him like he was something special. They had very low standards. Nothing good (politically) comes out of NJ MA or NY.
I have no respect for Christie. But Paul is really stretching this for all the pub he can get, and no sitting governor should schlep to DC for a ‘beer summit’ with a senator from some other state.
That’ a good way to put it.
Senator Paul should have asked Lumpy if he wanted to grab a ham sandwich instead of a beer...
Paul rejected the meal and suggested the beer as I recall the dicussion
Not in NJ. Only in areas with real conservatives. I had a coworker who lives in NJ. Apparently intelligent on some issues, but on some subjects it's like she had her brains sucked out and replaced with Democratic party slogans. She absolutely lacks critical thinking on guns, the role of government (can't have too much of it) and taxation - thinks those who make more should pay more. I just don't understand her at all. Her husband is an optomitrist, and she does OK money wise too. You'd think that people who work hard would want to pay less not more.
Budweiser stock was up over a dollar on the news that Christie wouldn’t have a beer here.
Wait trading hasn’t taken place yet since this news unless it went up on rumor already. We will see how Budweiser stock responds to the news today.
That will just endear him to all the RINO lovers in the party. “Look, he reaches across the aisle!” /swoon
