Christie Rips Libertarian Drift of Republican Party

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) "heatedly denounced the growing libertarian drift on national security in the Republican Party that is favored by Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, and others in the party," the New York Times reports.

Said Christie: "This strain of libertarianism that's going through parties right now and making big headlines I think is a very dangerous thought."

He added: ""These esoteric, intellectual debates -- I want them to come to New Jersey and sit across from the widows and the orphans and have that conversation. And they won't, because that's a much tougher conversation to have."
