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.

Gov Christie has a lot of pent-up hostility for being a fat piece of crap.

Let's give him a break. At 350 lbs, soon enough he'll have a heart attack and keel over.

I wouldn't care what party he's in, I love the fact that this man is able to stand up for what he believes in. We're so used to these namby pamby politicians that fold like cheap suits when it comes to defending their records. I don't think anyone can say that about Christie. As for how he looks or what he's eating, it's none of your business. Shut your "Let's Move" pieholes and take care of your own business.

Dear Democrat liberals who support Obama. Wipe your chins of drool, Christie will NOT... repeat will NOT be the VP pick. You think the Republicans want this fat hog representing them? Think again. I don't respect people who can't control their food intake or visit the gym - Chris Crispy Creme needs a trainer - not a VP nomination.

You pick on the size of the man or what he's eating because his politics are what scare you. No liberal with their "Im following blindly the union is bleeding me dry while I dont care if the kids or learning or not" can stand up to him. And yes the winning teacher that told the student that if he spoke badly about omoron he would be arrested. The student had to teach her! Dont worry She is back in school learning about Freedom of Speech.

This guy is a hot-headed blow hard. And with that temper and that girth, he's also a massive coronary waiting to happen. I think the last thing he should have been doing on the boardwalk was eating an ice cream cone.

Christie has absolutley no business in politics. Honestly, who wants a hotheaded VP? This guy is an @$$ clown. For me personally, I prefer my politicians to be well spoken and educated: not ill-tempered babies. This has nothing to do with right vs. left. This has everything to do with stupidity.

Who cares how overweight the guy is. As long as he doesn't have a heart attack in the next 4 years, I would vote for him for President in a "New Jersey" minute. Love his attitude. Better than the current guy who thinks no change in the unemployment rate "is a step in the right direction", or his Republican opponent who tries too hard at being middle of the road and please everyone, and pleases no one.

Christie is a classic bully which is ironic in that he signed anti-bullying legislation recently.

Meanwhile, this fat **** slobs out on ice cream and forgets that he's first a public servant.

Meanwhile, his real service is to his buddies who he keeps fat with his pork.

This guy is a disgusting slob in every respect. Go eat more ice cream you pig.

I see his political career lasting about another 2 years, unless the big H attack gets him first.

Possible fighting words when around Christie would include any item of food known to mankind, so 'ice cream' could have been the culprit.

The guy breaks toilets and hasn't seen his penis in years. That's why he's so angry.
