Last week I posted that Christie went after Rand Paul's Libertarianism. You can read that here. This week the Governor and the Senator go after each other again.
Senator Rand Paul:
Governor Chris Christie Response:
The Keystone Pipeline is an oil pipeline that would stretch from Canada to Texas. This pipeline over recent years has been a hot political issue. You have Obama and his Democratic buddy's fighting against the pipeline because they believe by building this pipeline it will increase carbon in our atmosphere. On the other side of the aisle, you have the GOP who are fighting for the pipeline because
Obama stated if the pipeline is built the best estimate would be 2,000 construction jobs and 100 additional jobs would be created. This figure Obama stated within itself does not make much sense. The idea that a 1,179 mile long, 36 inch diameter crude oil pipeline would only create 2,000 jobs is ridiculous. Now to put this into perspective, it took 10,000 workers to build the World Trade Center. The Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world from 1971 to 1973. (God bless those who lost their lives in those towers) 10,000 workers were needed to build the tallest building in the world, and 2,000 workers for a pipeline that goes across the whole country. The math does not add up there. Besides the fact Obama's own State Department disagrees with his projections. They project the pipeline will create 42,000 jobs.
GOP leaders had some harsh words with Obama and his fuzzy math.
The Republican National Committee Stated:
President Obama joked about the potential job creating power of the Keystone XL pipeline. With our economy lagging, the president should be jumping at any opportunity to create jobs instead of bending to the will of special interests at the expense of out of work Americans.
Michigan Republican Congressman Fred Upton Stated:
A president disparaging private-sector jobs while backstage at a jobs rally is beyond belief.
Congressman Fred Upton also told Fox News: In this economy, any source of private job creation should be welcomed with open arms. After nearly five years … there is no reason to delay these jobs another day. Republicans, Democrats, leading unions, and job creators all agree, it’s time to start building.

If Governor Christie believes the constitutional rights and the privacy of all Americans is ‘esoteric,’ he either needs a new dictionary, or he needs to talk to more Americans, because a great number of them are concerned about the dramatic overreach of our government in recent years,” Paul senior adviser Doug Stafford told The Washington Times.
