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
Forget the Beer Summit Christie probably would like a Milkshake Summit.
I was watching the back and forth between Flower Child and Fat boy and it sounds like Fat boy struck back in citing the NJ high federal tax to $$$ benefits ratio compared to Kentucky's ration and then Flower Child just backed off apparently scared he would lose that argument, offering to have a beer with Christie on the Cavuto show. You see Fat boys response above,
Not promising for those expecting Flower Child to perform in a debate.
From all outward appearances, that was a first...
Christie is the poster-boy for arrested development, IMO.
He’s too busy with the stuff 0bummer promised if he joined the Sustein nudge campaign...that’s the truth...he’s been bought and if anyone doubts this, just ask former raving fan Coulter.
Loud sounds of chickens clucking in background.
A Big Mac and a malt maybe; but not a beer - that could make Krispy look too manly.
Rand needed to throw in a plate of wings with the beer. Maybe some cheese sticks, potato skins, fried mushrooms, french fries, some poppers, .......
No, they want OTHER people to pay more, gov’t to run OTHER peoples’ lives. They get all ‘uppity’ when they themselves get in the cross-hairs.
Back on topic. Christie could traipse around NJ w/ O (who still hasn’t ‘cut the red tape’ that I’ve read) but can’t spend an hour/two for a brew? Yep, keep it up douche, you’re ‘16 prospects are swirling the bowl ever faster; you’ll never get a penny for me, let alone my vote.
If Christie is the nominee, I will not vote (for the first time in a Presidential election)
Hey kkkrispie kkkreme... You ain’t real popular down here.
Maybe a half dozen fried eggs sandwiched between two donuts with a 1 pound side of hashbrowns would get Christie to the table. Then the milkshake with a king sized Snickers bar for desert.
Fat Boy and Flower Child! LOL!
‘Hey man, I am inviting Gov Christie down here to exercise our constitutional right to shared a doobie or two with me and then maybe go out for some munchies. We can work this out under the right conditions’
One of them many things that disturbs me about all politicians is the focus they put on re-election and fundraising instead of doing the freakin’ job they were elected to do and the fact that the electorate let them continually do it by re-electing these idiots. I wish I could score a job where I got paid to basically play golf and socialize 80% of the time I should be working.
Cut their staffs down to a couple of people and make them work.
Not only is Christie a democrat in disguise, he is (and reminds me of) an arrogant, loud mouthed “bully”.
“...he called Christie the king of bacon...
IINM, “Sheets” Byrd - he’s got streetlamps and fire hydrants named after him - held that title, and Ron Paul was no slouch, either. Neither was Murtha, Stevens, Dornan... but isn’t that what they all do, to differing degrees? Bring home the ‘bacon’ (US Taxpayers’ monies) to their districts and states? PORK.
From the John McCain school of politics.
The establishment will be glad in Rand ends up as the leading alternative, he’d probably be the easiest for them to beat.
Bet if Rand offered Christie Haagen Dazs, Fatso would have been there in a heartbeat.
Christie has no interest in a beer summit. Make it a cake summit, and he’s there.
BTW, he had weight loss surgery back in February....I wonder how much poundage he’s dropped?
Imagine how happy he is now that Twinkies are back.
This exchange of his with fat boy certainly shows how unready Rand will be for even debating the major leadership position of POTUS, few here will like to read it but fat boy kicked his butt and Rand whimpered and cried ‘uncle’. Fat boy can always throw at him ,'I ran a state, what have you ever accomplished?' and Rand knows it.
This is exactly why I have skeptical of the claim that these completely inexperienced cult heroes can win the POTUS, and specifically Rand.
The logic that ‘Obama did it so we can’ is totally flawed, claimed by the same who point out how the media is on Dems side.
Yep. Krispie's following 0's orders...
Do NOT have a beer summit with Rand, that would be acting stupidly.
Bet if 0 offered Krispie a beer, he’d be there (slobbering) in a heartbeat.
Paul should have offered him an ice cream soda instead of the beer. That would have gotten Krispy Kreme Kristie’s attention.
“I’ve got Fuuuuuuudge........Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses....We’re talking Haagen Dazs here, what do ya say?”
” This is exactly why I have skeptical of the claim that these completely inexperienced cult heroes can win the POTUS, and specifically Rand.

We ran the two worst candidates in history against Obama, and we appear likely to go for the third : )
