Governor Christie’s Outbursts – Refreshing or Tired [POLL]
Last Monday, after the Governor’s outburst at a Bergen Record reporter for not staying on topic, I posted this story, stating that he needed to dial it down.
Sure, we all have enjoyed the plethora of YouTube moments of our Governor “telling it like it is” to anyone who dares get in his crosshairs.
(The “Tom Moran – You must be the most thin-skinned guy” moment is a personal fave!)
And he sure is better than the “stuffed shirt” that we had in office before him.
But after a while, the act’s getting old. It seems like there’s not a week that goes by when he doesn’t flip out on someone.
This past weekend was no exception.
Governor Christie, who is spending some time this week at the governor’s official vacation home on Island Beach State Park, exchanged words with a heckler on the boardwalk in nearby Seaside Heights while getting ice cream, according to TMZ.
In the video shot by a passerby, Christie is approached by a man who yells out to him about teachers.
Christie, who always has state police security at his side, responds by the calling the man “a real big shot.”
Christie’s office did not respond to a request for a comment Friday, but an administration official close to the governor said the man swore at him while he was with his children.
“He’s a father, so it’s difficult to blame him for his spontaneous reaction,” the source said.
This altercation comes nearly a week after the governor, known for his brash style, called a reporter from The Record an “idiot” after he asked a question at a news conference in Monmouth County that Christie deemed “off-topic.”
Ironic that it happened at Seaside, since according to the report:
Seaside Heights hosts the MTV show “Jersey Shore,” a reality television offering known for its loud and boisterous cast members, whose actions have been criticized by Christie.
However, I give him props for this, at least he went to Seaside.
When the “caca sotto”** former Governor went on vacation to the shore, it wasn’t to our shore, but to the Hamptons, where, according to this, he was seen not eating an ice cream cone, but drinking a moccachocolatta chachacha, and looking pretty weather-beaten.
Corzine, 65, was looking worn out and gaunt earlier this week as he trudged along Main Street in East Hampton on his way back from the local Starbucks.
With an oversized sweatshirt and baggy jeans, the stressed-out former governor of New Jersey looked as if he was on his way to a dental appointment instead of a relaxing evening.
“I think it was pretty noticeable that he was haggard and somewhat unfocused,” said the friend, who ran into Corzine recently. “You can definitely see that he’s a troubled man right now.”
No tears for Jonny Boy, but still, despite the fact that “Chris from Mendham” is an upgrade as a strong an effective leader. Do you feel he needs to “check himself before he wrecks himself?”
