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.

Yes, he's very brave when he knows he's surrounded by big, beefy bodyguards that wouldn't let anything happen to him. I'll bet if he was by himself, he wouldn 't open his mouth ... or he'd find himself on his rear end!

Yeah, he's a real tough guy. Always confrontational when he's got six state troopers to "hold him back. (LOL) "Let me at em, let me at em. Why I'd tear him limb from limb if youse troopers wouldn't stop me!"

In the meantime, little Andy Cuomo is picking his pockets and looks to have better fortunes in 2016 than Chrissie. BTW....where are all the jobs Chrissie?

Christie is great and he knows who the deadbeats are and where the money should go! Its no bs with him! Christie is the greatest and if you dont like him its because you are taking short cuts and want something for nothing at the expense of the country! He is old school regarding values and that is what made this country great not freeloading weasels who keep their hand out in order to bankrupt the USA!!

"He called a reporter 'stupid' and an 'idiot'." I love the guy but that is a redundancy.

In NJ charter schools ARE public schools. No tuition, open enrollment and can only limit by population by building capacity. They are also the schools largely chosen by struggling and minority families over the traditional public schools.

Christie is a embarrassment to the Great State of New Jersey. Residents here can't stand this loose cannon.
Nor can he govern. He's got some serious anger issues complicated with internal bullying. People here wish Romney would ask him to be VP so we could get him out of here. Romney is going to lose anyway. Chris Christie should be IMPEACHED!!!

That's Jersey for ya.

But what's the guy doin' eating an ice cream cone? Christie needs to go have a Come-to-Jesus meeting with Mayor Bloomberg, Michelle Obama, and Richard Simmons.

Call him anything you like on these board...that's the best part of all of this.....if you call him out on something, he expects you to back it up. New Jersey is lucky to have such a great Governor. He cares deeply about his state. He will not only keep residents in the state, but also bring some back since no one in their right mind what's to live there because of the exorbitantly high tax rates. Keep on..keep on, Governor Christie!

You people just don''t get it. He is a PUPPET for The Koch Brothers. The Koch Brothers, ALEC(The American legislative Exchange Council) and Citizens United. ALEC is basically corporations and Republicon legislators who come together and both vote on legislation to re-write our rights. Chrisite is bought and paid for just like all the other *********** Republicon governors that came to power in 2010. They are working for billionaires and not the middle class. Obama is the last chance we have for democracy. But none of you would know that cuz your too interested in stupid celebrities' lives. Brad Pitt's mom is a moron for voting for Governor Etch-A-Sketch......WWW.KOCHBROTHERSEXPOSED.COM
