“I’m running for reelection in New Jersey, I don’t really have time for that at the moment,” Christie said of Paul’s offer to grab a beer and “kiss and make up.”
“If I find myself down in Washington, I’ll certainly look him up. But I don’t suspect I’ll be there anytime soon. I’ve got work to do here.”
The two have been trading barbs over national security and spending, in a simmering rivalry that dates back to a dispute over Hurricane Sandy relief funding last fall.
“I don’t know why Senator Paul is so out of whack on this,” said Christie. “I never called him any names, yet he called me names. I didn’t use any childish phrases like, ‘gimme, gimme, gimme,’ he did. I just have to assume from that that he’s trying to get some attention. And that’s fine, he’s not the first politician to use me to get attention in the national media, and I’m sure he won’t be the last.”
Seriously, Ron Paul, you want to pick a fight with Chris Christie? Really, of all the Republicans you can choose to point out the idiocy of, you pick the biggest (and smartest) dog in the yard.
Really? Have you seen this guy?
