I don't see telling someone to "shut up" or calling someone "stupid" as being a bully. Rude...yes. I'm not saying Christie isn't a bulky (ha...i almost corrected that typo) I don't know enough about him.<quoted text>
Not if Christie plans a national presence.
This is all well known to those who know Mr. Christie. His record as a Federal Prosecutor is excellent, but a review of it proves how willing he is to go after those who disagree with him.
he's a big bully, NJ style. His brash, loudmouth style plays well in NJ, but so did Jersey Shore!!
Imagine if Obama told a private citizen to "Shut up!", or publicly called them "Stupid!" for questioning something he did??
He had his State Gestapo force a reporter onto the stage with him so Christie could dress the man down and insult him!!
You want a man like that as President??
""Chris Christie Goes On Attack Against Reporter At Press Conference""
""New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) got into a verbal confrontation with a local television news reporter Monday during questions about the governor's foreclosure policy during a press conference.
Christie, speaking in Long Branch, got into the confrontation when Jim Hoffer, an investigative reporter with WABC-TV in New York, asked questions following-up a Christie answer on foreclosure, according to video captured by PolitickerNJ.com . Hoffer had been suggesting that Christie's facts were not in order, which Christie disputed.
When Hoffer persisted, Christie tore into the reporter, who is not part of the Trenton press corps that regularly covers the Garden State leader. Hoffer and Christie both tried to talk over each other at one point.
“Don’t show up once in every blue moon and think you’re going to dominate my press conference," Christie said on the PolitickerNJ.com video. "Get your facts correct and ask. Thank you very much.”
The exchange with Hoffer is the latest in a string of confrontations between media members and Christie since he took office in 2010. In May 2010, he was captured on video telling a Star-Ledger columnist that he had a "thin-skin" during a Statehouse press conference.""
And Christie says he's 'not a bully.
Sure. And Ted Cruz isn't Canadian!!
we are never going to have a perfect politician, we have to weigh the good with the bad in any person. If he knowingly used his power to do this, the bad grossly out weighs the good in the guy.
