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.

Christie is a pos. he only supports state regulations when it fulfills his agendas and opposes things that dont and uses the excuse that the state shouldnt undermine government laws. hes a fat retard.

I think the pressure/stress is getting to him. Hey, Gov, I agree with that guy: Take care of the teachers!

I have found his honesty refreshing. But his temperament wouldn't work in the White House. This guy had a right to his opinion without being bullied by Christie.

He is an asshat. There is no 'PC BS' in funding public schools vs charter schools. And there is nothing honest or upfront about someone who will be calling shots in our country who can't even control himself in public, it shows a lack of self control.. as does his weight.

Geez is that it?? I thought it was some huge explosion...this is just another normal day for him. Although I don't want him near the red button in the Oval office if China or Russia upsets him.

Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house and Russia can see Chris Christie from there.

This obese monstrosity is an embarrassment to the American people. Keep the temper in check! I do not want this thing representing me whether I agree with his policies or not!!!

He signed into law something that the legislators must have had enough votes for...sounds like he followed the democratic process unlike the Prez who just announces he is going to do something even if no one voted for, or likes it. Even if things are voted down, he just ignores it and "passes" it by his own proclamations. I can't speak for his temper but NJ seems to keep him there. Work on replacing him if they don't like him.

This guy is a jerk. I'm one of his constituents and anything he has ever done for the state is overshadowed by his arrogance. This is not the first time he's been seen talking back to his constituents, it's disgusting.
