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.

If I were Christy, the last thing I would be doing is calling someone big while eating ice cream.

It's Jersey folks

have you been there before? Try making the same comment yourself to someone. Christie has every right to get mad at some teacher union pig supporter.

All you have to rebut is calling him names? I bet you're equally fat, it's meaningless and adds character.

Finally, another Truman. A man of the people who gives back what is thrown at him. He is just what we need in todays phony, what's in it for me, politicians. We need more like him.

Very tough to tell a guy to 'keep walking' as your police escort starts making their way towards him for nothing but words.

Christie has about as much chance of getting the VP spot (or a second term as Gov.) as Snookie.

You don't need to have a temper to call reporters stupid and a idiot. Because reporters are stupid and are idiots.

Ever notice how the "brave" Libs jump right out to attack any Conservative who has "stones?" Just proves how gutless they are.
If Christie doesn't make it to Washington, we need
him on the west coast. Oh, do we need him!
