So is his ego.
While Rand Paul shows himself to be a class act with an offering of a “beer summit” of sorts to smooth over the personal war started by Christie a few days ago, Christie, continues to be an arrogant douche canoe, rejecting the Senator’s offer by claiming he’s just too important and busy.
“I think with Gov. Christie it’s gotten a little too personal, so we’re ready to kiss and make-up,” he said on Fox News.
“I’m inviting him for a beer anytime he would like to come down and sit down at the pub right around the corner from the Senate,” Paul added.
But the New Jersey governor was not having it.
“I’m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don’t really have time for that at the moment,” Christie said Wednesday evening on New Jersey 101.5 FM, The Star Ledger Reported. “If I find myself in Washington, I’ll certainly look him up, but I don’t suspect I’ll be there anytime soon.”
Christie reportedly tried to dismiss the so-called feud as a minor event, but called Paul’s comments “juvenile.”
“I don’t know why Senator Paul is so out of whack about this. At the end of the day I never called him any names, yet he called me names. I didn’t use any childish type phrases like gimme, gimme, gimme, he did. I just have to assume from that that he’s just trying to get attention. That’s fine,” Christie said. “He’s not the first politician who’s used me to try to get attention in the national media and I’m sure he won’t be the last.”
Translation: I’m so important that the very unpopular Rand Paul is trying to use my importance to gain importance, and is being juvenile in calling me out for being a petty tyrant and an entitled prick, raging about not getting enough taxpayer money, because I’m not, and he’s juvenile and I’m important, and I don’t need him, because of my awesome importance.
I will remind readers that Porky lobbed the initial grenade at Senators questioning the government’s surveillance programs (Rand Paul has been a leader in efforts to protect Americans’ privacy) by invoking the specter of 9-11 as justification for violating this nation’s citizens’ privacy rights.
Let me also remind readers that the intelligence community, in a now-declassified presidential daily brief, made a correct call about impending terrorist attacks – a call based entirely on HUMINT, open source and allied reporting, and not at all on NSA data. And in the end, the warning didn’t make a difference anyway. We were still attacked.
So Christie is an arrogant asswart with an overinflated sense of his own importance, which makes him an almost guaranteed establishment pick for their next golden boy presidential candidate.
So get ready for the next Democrat in the White House. It’s just as well, because Christie’s fat ass couldn’t fit into Marine One anyway.
