What was said exactly? Don't you think that would have been more important in the details of the options than a bio of them? Last I checked, Rand is "Yea, no. Don't do it".

Christie wants to check every citizen's phone records to make sure they aren't terroristic, while Paul wants to obtain a warrant or evidence of terrorism before checking records.

Christie completely denied Rand's statement on the 4th Amendment. So Rand Paul by far because he stood up for the constitution.

And Christie's point was basically, "I hugged 9/11 victims, so give me your phone records." Rand was right on the actual issue of surveillance.

Rand Paul should have done a little more homework and touched on Christie's appointment of Sohail Mohammed or his friend Imam Mohammad Qatanani.

Let's see... Terrorist can work within the law. If this is the case, then why should we not have surveillance programs targeted at mosques? These terrorist are intelligent and work along side of the sheep. The problem is, if we have to get court orders to do search warrants, then you will tip off the terrorist law enforcement is coming. We don't need to be giving radical Islamist a heads up law enforcement is coming.
