In Case You Were Looking For Proof That Chris Christie Will Not Be Vice-President
Here it is:
Gov. Chris Christie got into a heated argument on the Seaside Heights boardwalk Thursday night, according to the website TMZ.com.
In a video posted to the website, Christie, seen holding an ice cream cone, grew angry at a passerby on the boardwalk who TMZ said shouted criticism of Christie’s education policy. The website said the confrontation happened last night as Christie was “hangin’” with his family in Seaside Heights.
“You’re a real big shot,” Christie said as he walked towards the man. “You’re a real big shot shooting your mouth off.”
The man shot back, “Nah, just take care of the teachers.”
As the man was leaving, Christie said, “Keep walking away. Really good. Keep walking,” and then was gently guided away by a man in his entourage. It’s unclear if the man is part of Christie’s State Trooper security detail.
Considering the fact that TMZ just happened to get the video, it’s possible this was a set up. But, guys, a confrontational style like this might work in New Jersey (and, trust me, it does) but it will not play well on the national scene. Personally, I can understand why Christie was pissed that some moron on the boardwalk started heckling him while he was with his family, though.
