Top 4 Chris Christie meltdown videos

Since Republican governor, and 2016 presidential hopeful, Chris Christie is back in the news due to his oversized temper, I thought it might be a good time to revisit the top 4 Chris Christie meltdown videos from the past few years.

As a bit of background, I’d reported earlier today that Christie is in trouble for new emails suggesting he shut down traffic in a New Jersey town, endangering EMT response, in order to punish the local mayor who didn’t support Christie’s recent re-election.

It seemed therefore an appropriate time to revisit Christie’s growing anger management problems.

In this first video, we have Christie responding snippily to a teacher who is upset about how much teachers get paid:

Rita Wilson: You’re not compensating me for my education, and you’re not compensating me for my experience.

Gov. Christie: Well you know what? Then you don’t have to do it.

That might work in New Jersey, but if Christie pulls that on the national campaign trail, he’s going to lose the women vote, and more.  Watch:

Next, I found a video of Christie responding to a reporter’s question about calling back the legislature. Christie calls the reporter “stupid” and an “idiot.”

Of course, “idiot” might be better than what he called one female protester during a rally: “sweetheart.”  Note to Christie: Try calling Hillary “sweetheart” in 2016 and see how long you keep your jewels.

Then we have Christie responding to a question from a mom who’s concerned that Christie is cutting public school funding while sending his kids to private schools. Christie’s answer: “It’s none of your business.”

    Watch and wait. Who else they got? Cruz? Ryan? Third-time-is-the-charm Romney? Rubio?

    Jebbie is considered the ‘smart’ bush. Stupid Republicans think he’s a political genius.

    I bet old Reince is about frantic trying to run that herd of rabid feral cats otherwise known as the Republican Party.

    I don’t buy for an instant that another Bush has a chance in hell. The Bush name hurting him is bad enough, but Jeb also suffers from many of the same problems within his own party that Christie does – ie, every now and then he says something that sounds a bit too much like reality for their taste. I think he missed his window for higher office. Of course, I could be wrong, the Republicans could be that desperate… I can only imagine what it looks like in RNC meetings these days.

  3. acmavm says:

    He’s toast. But This damn fiasco is a Republican wet dream. Now they can put Jeb Bush back into the national spotlight. Because they know that the Senator from Calgary hasn’t got a snowball’s chance in Hell.

  4. Naja pallida says:

    Well, if they follow the trend this time around, Rick Santorum should be the nominee… and I just don’t see that happening. They don’t hate themselves that much. It’s going to be someone who hasn’t run before, and that’s a pretty narrow field of nationally recognizable candidates. My guess at this way too early point would be that we’d be looking at a Christie, Rubio, Ryan contest. With the usual crowd of yahoos playing with their own feces at the fringes. But who knows. Personally, I’d like to be surprised for a change.

    The Reptilian Party is chock full of bullies. Anyway, in his case you have to chalk it up to sugar and, well, it is New Jersey.

    Goes to show that American voters never had much of a choice between Chris Christie or Hillary Clinton as future President of USA. Both give a strong impression that they are chronic liars, and don’t have what it takes to be President. But then, maybe that qualifies them to lead USA?

  7. cole3244 says:

    christie is ignorant and a bully but that seems to be attractive to a majority in america because he seems tough and won’t take nothing from nobody.
    our love affair with guns and violence explains a lot about what really turns america on and intellect and compassion aren’t high on that list, they are seen as a weakness not a strength and helps explain some of the neanderthals we elect as pres over more intelligent and civil candidates.

  8. Monoceros Forth says:

    Odd, I thought they both got it because the Republican machine chooses their candidate long before the primaries ever begin.

    Let’s be fair, that sort of thing is hardly exclusive to Republicans. It’s bothered me for a long while now how it seems like the frontrunners for every presidential nomination for both parties are decided before the campaign season even starts. It was down to Obama vs. Hillary Clinton before one vote was cast in any state.

  9. Naja pallida says:

    Let’s not kid ourselves, this guy won re-election with a 22 point margin. Despite polling showing that most NJ disagreeing with his positions on pretty much everything. Republicans love him, even if they just love to hate him. Even with him being a petty tyrant with no self control, if he runs, we’ll still need to take it quite seriously. He has a better chance at being elected than either Romney or McCain ever did. Especially if the Democrats run a polarizing candidate like Hillary Clinton.

  10. Naja pallida says:

    Odd, I thought they both got it because the Republican machine chooses their candidate long before the primaries ever begin. It’s almost always the guy who was the second place loser the previous time around. George W. Bush is really the only exception to that in more than a generation.

  11. Ninong says:

    If Christie manages to get the GOP nomination, it will be by default, the same way Romney got it. The other candidates will split the vote and he’ll be the last one left standing. Come to think of it, that’s pretty much the same way McCain got it.
