Mr. Christie had told fellow GOP governors in Aspen, Colo., on Thursday that Mr. Paul is part of a “strain of libertarianism that’s going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought.”
Mr. Christie on Thursday also once again found a way to compliment President Obama while slapping at Mr. Paul.
“President Obama has done nothing to change the policies of the Bush administration in the war on terrorism,” he told fellow Republican governors at a meeting.
“And I mean practically nothing,” he said. “And you know why? Cause they work.”
The New Jersey governor has taken a tough-sounding stand on national defense and terrorism since his embrace of Mr. Obama over federal aid to New Jersey.Well there's a difference between what President Bush did and what Dictator Obama is doing, fat boy! Under Bush, the NSA programs targets specific calls between people domestically to suspected terrorists overseas. Under your new BFF Obama, everyone's calls, e-mails, etc. is being watched, regardless if they are suspected of terrorism.
Now, to a certain extent, I can understand some surveillance of people without a warrant, IF they are suspected of being in touch with terrorists overseas. However, getting records of phone calls of ALL Americans is dangerous, and especially when we have a Regime that has used the IRS to attack political enemies. That is not only unconstitutional, it is UnAmerican.
Paul shot back to Crispy Crème, via an aide.
“If Governor Christie believes the constitutional rights and the privacy of all Americans is ‘esoteric,’ he either needs a new dictionary, or he needs to talk to more Americans, because a great number of them are concerned about the dramatic overreach of our government in recent years,” Paul senior adviser Doug Stafford told The Washington Times.

Paul. But it can and must be done in keeping with our Constitution and while protecting the freedoms that make America exceptional.”
The problem is, Christie Crème has an ego that's bigger than his waist size, and (like fellow RINO John McLame) he doesn't care about what's best for the country, just what's best for himself.
