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.

Liberals are *******, and the NJ Governor proves it every time they attack him. Keep it up. This just makes him more popular because real Americans hate the media and leftist *******.

Way to go Christie!! Keep it up! The union thugs would rather see kids flounder in their incompetent schools, as opposed to having a chance to succeed. Shame on teacher unions. They should be OUTLAWED!

Christie is out of line...and arrogant always ****y and has the audacity to call people names. Chasing this down eating an ice cream is classless. This guy who said take care of the teachers because Christie 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. Nice job Christie!

Fire the politicians. They have infiltrated society and government, and they serve no purpose. Run the government like a corporation, because politicians are redundant, and all they do is rape the tax base. They treat themselves like celebrities, with expense accounts, and no time clocks to punch. They give themselves pensions and raises, and pass laws that save them criminarlly harmless from their own corruptions and thievery. Elect one person, for the position of president, and get rid of the bogus political parties. Then get rid of every government expense that does not benefit every individual member of society (roads, hospitals, policing). No more tax breaks for churches. No more single income tax filings for couples, just because they held a religious marriage ceremony. Don't be a sheep to the political con game. Wake up America.

I find it interesting how pretty much ev eryone who doesn't like Christie feels compelled to make a negative comment about his weight. As though that somehow justifies their opinion. It's the new bigotry, and the obese are one of the few groups the PC mentality despise (after smokers, gun owners and wealthy folks).

So insult away. But God forbid you actually take issue with the man's opinions and actions.

Most charter schools are also public, not private, at least in most places. This is a popular misunderstanding perpetrated by the unions who want to control the schools, whereas in charter schools the parents actually have some control.

Gov Christie speaks his mind. Something all politicians could learn from. He is a do-er, not a complainer. You had better be prepared to back up any comments made towards him with specific facts. He's very refreshing. We here in California could use him.
