Rand Paul was down in Houston this weekend at a GOP fundraiser, badmouthing Democratic Presidents Obama and Bill Clinton, as is his usual wont to do. But he also took this not so thinly disguised swipe at one of his Republican rivals, Chris Christie.
When asked if New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should remain the chair of the Republican Governor's Association in light of the so-called Bridgegate scandal, Paul said it's not for him to judge.
But he did say, "It's important that people think that their government not be used to bully them. So for example, one of the things that conservatives have been upset with President Obama is that it looked like he was using the IRS to target taxpayer groups. Nobody wants to think their government would shut down a bridge or do something just because you're a Democrat and I'm a Republican. It's an unsettling charge. I don't know if it's true, but it's unsettling and serious."
Yup, Rand Paul doesn't know if it's true or not, but it's "unsettling". Pass the popcorn.
