Did Rand Paul publicly bitch slap Chris Christie?

This one ad alone cost 4.7 million. Where is the "public service" announcement?


Stronger Than The Storm. Chris Christie's High-Priced Ad

The two bidders had different views on how the campaign should be run. MWW wanted to put Christie in the ads. The other bidder, Sigma Group, did not. MWW won the contract- regardless of their demanding $2.2 million more. Is it possible that the official, who received a $49,000 loan from the Governor, made a bias decision in choosing ads that featured the Governor during his reelection?

$700 Million in Katrina Relief Funds Missing, Report Shows - ABC News

A new inspector general's report found that about $700 million awarded to help Hurricane Katrina victims fortify their homes from future floods is unaccounted for, which Congressional leaders say is a troubling sign of the need for tighter controls as Superstorm Sandy rebuilding efforts intensify this spring.

Complaints about heavy bureaucracy and a lack of transparency in Gov. Chris Christie’s efforts to help the state recover from the storm

You know the Republican controlled congress who hates that Christie worked with Obama will be taking a long, hard look at where the money is going and where it went. Will Christie have all the answers?

I like Christie. Not so radical. Seems to have some pity for the working class folk. You know, the ones that do all the work to make the n lazy CEO rich.

OMG, another idiot who thinks that CEOs and corporate officers do not work. When I was in that role I worked 60-80 very stressful hours per week for many years.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

When the hourly worker finishes his shift, he forgets the job and goes home to relax with the family, drink beer, or watch TV. Corporate execs are on the job 24/7/365.

Yes, they make a lot of money, but so do the people who hold their stock in their 401K acccounts.

My wife has worked her way to third position in a large company. She makes a lot of money and works her ass off. Constantly having to travel and when on the road is doing emails and other such business starting at 5am. Juggling customers and sales reps, putting out fires all over the place, babysitting employees with poor skills and questionable ethics just to keep a force moving and making money.

We are quite comfortable between my business and her position, but the rabble of losers only see the shiny things, not the endless hours and absolute dedication. Sick days do not exist, vacations are often put off for years. I think at one point we went four years without a vacation.

Well. You know ... God willing, and Bachmann doesn't get indicted. ;)
Well, you know ... God willing and Hillary doesn't get indicted :doubt:
Egypt has already indicted Hillary and arrested at least one of her aides.

You just want the candidates who keep losing. I'd want that too if I were a socialist, so I'm not blaming you, I'm just pointing it out.

That's good you are comfortable. I tell my workers if they are sick then stay home. I used to provide them 12 sick days per year and for those who stayed with me for 5 years they received 15 days paid vacation. 7 years got them 20 days. But they were good workers and I wanted to keep them. SOme businesses are always looking to lower labor costs which in my mind is poor business practice. Don't criticize those who punch in and punch out. As long as they fulfill their time, that is all you can ask of them. Why does Glenn not like those people isn't it? I remember my first job out of college for a small corporation. I worked hard. I asked for a raise and was rejected. (learning lesson). So I walked off the job one day after lunch and never returned. No notice, nothing. I was supposed to have attended an accounting meeting. Instead I walked off and found another job 2 days later for better pay and better benefits. Talk about a great day. Very empowering. But this was in the 70s when there were jobs everywhere for college grads.

Why are there no jobs for college grads today? Why has a lot of industry left the USA?

both questions have the same answer: high taxes, unions, and over regulation by the federal govt.
