Paul: Christie is the 'king of bacon' on government spending

(CNN) – The feuding between Republicans Chris Christie and Rand Paul continued Tuesday as the senator from Kentucky cautioned the governor from New Jersey was picking a fight with the wrong guy.

In an interview to air on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer," Paul defended himself against Christie's most recent allegations that the senator was bringing home too much money for his state.

"This is the king of bacon talking about bacon," Paul said about Christie. Both are considered potential 2016 contenders for the Republican presidential nomination.

    Christie may be the King of Bacon, but Paul is the king of Bull and really hasn't a clue to how the real real world runs or how to govern it. In Paul's fantasy world...everything just takes care of itself kinda like caveman days.

    It's interesting that Paul would go after New Jersey and Christie when they actually put in more money into the federal government than they receive.
