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 an idiot. He is a public oficial but heaven forbid that anyone disagree with him WOW. People in Jersey should honestly kick him out of office. Enough of his outbursts, it's really not funny!

Dear Gov. Krispy..., errrr, I mean, Gov. Kreme: Can't you just take a one week absence from proving what a first-class jackass you are and quit proving what total idiots the NJ citizens were in electing you? You serve as nothing more than very cheap entertainment. You must be hell for your family to live with! LOSER!!!

Love it, love it. This man don't take any crap from anyone and he don't care who knows it. So unusual to see a politician speak what's on his mind. Usually they lie through their teeth and act fake as a new pair of Hollywood boobies.

Not the kind of display that I would want from a vice presidential candidate. Shows total lack of self control.

When are people going to wake up and and stop this publicly tolerated BULLYING? People have differences of opinion, but Chris Christie's behavior is NOT something we'd tolerate in our kids. So why allow it from him?

People that do not work in education in NJ need to stop running their mouths... yes there are overpaid people in education.. as there are anywhere.. and the reason kids are not learning as much is b.c of the push to standardized testing and how that shapes the curriculum we are using to teach our students. and NO the teachers are not happy about it. No teachers do not have it easy. A lot of teachers work longer hours than contracted and spend a lot of their own money on stuff in the classrooms BECAUSE budgets have been cut. Teachers are under a great deal of pressure with the new evaluations coming out and the new test that will replace the ASK. So tired or reading ignorant people who DONT know what they are talking about and are bitter probably because their job sucks. Get over yourself, I'd love to see you try to do what teachers do.

Wow! I am so proud of Christie for standing up to those vile leftists who only have the nerve to shout obscenities or to run across a stage and throw pies at conservative speakers. These leftists are the lowest of the American citizens.
