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.

I love it. I would love to see Christie and Biden go at it in a debate. Christie would clean his clock.

Be yourself and don't worry about being another phony politician. I like Christie he is not afraid to confront the liars and distorters who have corrupted the politics in America.

Charter Schools ARE public Schools! They do a better job than traditional public schools!

It is funny how all the liberals who demand PC quickly turn to name calling about someones weight that has literally saved New Jersey from complete disaster. If his weight is all you have to use against him you have nothing at all.

He's obnoxious! He is a hot head, shoots off hhis big mouth, he's abusive!
Glad he's NOT my governor.
Our Gov Andrew Cuomo is terrific! He has both parties working together for the people. He's a class act too.

Easy to be a big (and I do mean big) tough guy when you've got a state police security detail watching your back.

Obama's vagina prevents him from manning up and confronting hecklers.

Christie overcompensates for his obesity with unmeasured engagements with detractors and special needs liberals. He is also not conservative enough to help extricate America from its liberalism bindings, so he is the lest attractive candidate for President in my opinion. That said, I can think of no one worse than Biden for VP and no President worse than Obama.

So what? Why is this news? Perhaps because it's a Republican doing this instead? Democrats have been acting this way for decades so it's expected gutter behavior from them. I say it's high time Republicans get up in Democrats' faces and put them in their place. They do not respect logic, fair debate, and reason so just like the vast majority of the Middle Eastern population, strength is the only thing they understand and respect.
