    Chris Christie accuses Rand Paul of making US 'vulnerable' to terrorism

    Chris Christie accuses Rand Paul of making US 'vulnerable' to terrorism | US news | The Guardian
    Did Rand Paul really make the US more vulnerable to terrorism? I think he didn't. NSA was spying on American citizens for a decade pretending to fight terrorism though there's not a single terrorist attack proven to have been thwarted by them. For some reason they couldn't even prevent Boston bombings. It's not like abolishing the Patriot Act improved things for the better though; they keep spying and it's not like it's going to end anytime soon. So Rand Paul did nothing wrong while Chris Christie just wants to win some political points for his presidential campaign.

    This is not new, we have known for a while now that Chris Christie believes in big government and big brother NSA domestic spying programs devoid of it's citizen's Constitutional protections and devoid of actually protecting the country.

    He is going to try to push this, and the response will not be so favorable to his chances (already not looking good anyway) in becoming President.

    Christie is wrong of course. However if Paul were to accuse Christie of being a fat disgusting slob who supports big government I would have to agree with that rebuttal. After all Christie used Sandy Hurricane relief funds for political opportunity.

    That's an odd position for Christie to taken, given his treasonous positions and policies regarding the treatment of foreign criminals who invade our nation. Any traitor who takes the side of these invading foreign criminals is in no position to accuse any opponent of taking positions that make the U.S. vulnerable to terrorist attack. He needs to do something about the beam in his own eye before he complains about the motes in the eyes of others.

    Translation: Vote for Rand Paul.



    I learned that I left a restaurant just minutes before Rand Paul came in to eat at the same restaurant. So disappointing...Im a big fan of him and his dad. I would have loved to bother him while hes trying to have a quiet meal.

    One of the few issues where Paul is correct. Kudos to him.

    Christie's biggest problem is that Republican primary voters hilariously associate him with Obama because of his cooperation with the administration over Hurricane Sandy (I mean what did they expect him to do?). So speaking in favor of NSA surveillance, something largely associated with the incumbent administration, will get him nowhere in the primary.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Do you think that these kind of comments contribute anything at all to discussion?

    Christie's already proven his political mettle is more suited to vindictively blocking bridge traffic because some Democrat wouldn't endorse him.

    Frankly, if he wants to garner political points, he has about a good of a chance of doing it against dictatorialism as he does against terrorism.
