This confrontation is way overdue in the Republican Party… and it’s a great show too…. Paul seemingly using the old trick of irritating hot-heads…to win the argument..
But scaling down defense… and protecting privacy… is well within a traditional conservatism of limited government, individual freedom and fiscal responsibility.. even if he takes on very powerful enemies and industries with these lines of attacks…..
Sen. Rand Paul slammed Chris Christie’s on Tuesday, calling the GOP governor the “king of bacon,” adding another jab in a string of attacks the two Republicans have thrown at each other in recent days.
“This is the king of bacon talking about bacon,” the Republican from Kentucky said on CNN’s “The Situation Room.” “You know, we have two military bases in Kentucky, and is Governor Christie recommending that we shut down our military bases? … No what this debate really is about is that in order to have enough money for national defense, which I think is a priority for the government, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places, and Governor Christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money.”
