Gov. Chris Christie

Fightin' Words

On the Jersey Shore

EXCLUSIVE



0_2yjedc81_0_7ipzit1lThings got downright HOSTILE on the Jersey Shore last night -- with NJ Governor Chris Christie getting into a heated verbal altercation right on the boardwalk ... and it was all caught on tape.

Gov. Christie (R-NJ) was hangin' with his family in Seaside Heights ... and had just ordered an ice cream cone when a passerby fired off some snide comments about Christie's policy on education.

Christie got PISSED -- and while clutching his cone, shouted back at the guy, "You're a real big shot ... you're a real big shot shootin' your mouth off."

The man shouted back, "Nah, just take care of the teachers!"

The comment only inflamed Christie ... who aggressively marched towards the guy and warned, "Keep walkin' away ... really good ... keep walkin'."

Soon after, someone in Christie's party put his arm around the 49-year-old and escorted him in the other direction.

FYI -- Christie, one of the prime contenders for the Republican Vice Presidential nomination, has recently signed legislation expanding public funding for charter schools ... a decision that has infuriated some who would prefer the money go towards struggling public schools.

Christie's temper has been making headlines after he called a reporter "stupid" and an "idiot" on Saturday for asking off-topic questions at a news conference.

Christie's camp had no comment on the story.

He really is what we need in politics today. No sugar coating, no pc BS, just the facts. If you don't like them, tough.

Um, if I was that obese, I would not be making a point of any kind while holding ice cream. Obviously a larger issue with the Gov...otherwise known as 'good judement'.

He would be a terrible VP because he doesnt know how to keep his temper and not be abusive.

And this gross pig is a star in the Republican party? Typical! Of course he was ordering ice cream before he stepped up on the citizen. But then this disgusting slob derides Bloomberg for "telling people what to do" because New York is tired of paying the healthcare tab for cows with bottom gullets like Christie's. A true joke of a man.

"Christie's temper has been making headlines after he called a reporter "stupid" and an "idiot" on Saturday for asking off-topic questions at a news conference. " - So in other words, you're saying he'd be another Joe Biden?
