Rand Paul Knocks Chris Christie’s ‘Bully Demeanor’

‘I think there’s resurgence of people who want a little more civility in discourse’

Rand Paul Knocks Chris Christie’s ‘Bully Demeanor’ (Mediaite)

The Rand Paul-Chris Christie feud, dormant for over a year, jumpstarted on Face the Nation Sunday morning, as Senator Paul (R-KY) criticized Governor Christie’s “bully demeanor,” most recently seen when the New Jersey governor told a heckler to “sit down and shut up.”

“This bully demeanor may go over well in certain places,” Paul said. “But I grew up in the south. We’re yes ma’am and no sir, a little bit more polite.”

“There was a time when I thought, when he stands up and says things boldly that’s kind of good, he’s not taking any flack,” Paul continued. “But there can be do much of that, too. We live in a world where we have so much cacophony of voices on TV sometimes, of yelling back and forth. I think there’s resurgence of people who want a little more civility in discourse.”
