Speaking at the Republican Governors Conference in Aspen, Colorado, Christie delivered what Aaron Blake at the Washington Post described as a “clear broadside” against Republicans of a libertarian bent, including Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, expected to be competing with Christie for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.
“As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that’s going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought,” Christie said.
Asked whether he meant to include Paul in that call for caution, Christie said, “You can name any one of them that’s engaged in this. I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans and have that conversation…. I’m very nervous about the direction this is moving in.”
Chris Christie should be immediately booted out of office for this crap. I got news for you Mr. Christie, America was just fine and dandy before 9/11 came along. We didn’t need the DHS, NDAA, Patriot Act, NSA and so on then and we don’t need it now. Experts have clearly stated many times that the intelligence community could have prevented 9-11. What all of those programs and organizations do is target US citizens, not the bad guys. Unless we are the bad guys. I think they have made it pretty clear that we are. -Mort
