[su_right_ad]A visibly agitated Governor Chris Christie yelled at a heckler who was critical of his handling of Hurricane Sandy.

A man began heckling Christie about the pace of storm recovery and interrupted the governor’s speech Wednesday in Belmar on several occasions.

After trying to brush the man off, Christie yelled back the man didn’t know what he was talking about and was just showing off for the news cameras.

When heckler Jim Keady continued, Christie told him: “Sit down and shut up.”

Keady founded a group called Finish The Job, which is critical of the pace of rebuilding assistance in New Jersey.

    Crisp Crispy doesn’t handle criticism well…
    He doesn’t have the self control to be president.

      My thoughts exactly. Can you imagine him dealing with the sh*t Obama’s dealt with for the past 6 years?

      More importantly, this is the guy who’s finger would be on the nuclear trigger?

        My comment is on hold…

        Do you want any of them on, or near, it??

    Really Christie?
    You’ve been doing the work?

    I know my sister has been working to get her house addressed since right after the storm and has had to do most of the legwork herself.
    They still haven’t gotten to a point where they can even start working on the house, much less finish it.

    Maybe by “doing the work” you mean using Sandy money for other projects?
    Or maybe for spending extra money (paid for by us NJ citizens) on a commercial so your family could be in it?

    And when you say “any time, buddy”, but then tell him to shut up… I guess “right now” wasn’t including in “any time”.
    Or when you’re invited to a dinner to talk about it… that doesn’t count as “any time” either?

    Chris Christie isn’t “tough”, he’s a self-serving asshole.

    He’s going up to Alaska to campaign against Mark Begich–I hope he pulls a stunt like this. He’s more “Gong Show” than Prime Time.

    • Obewon October 29th, 2014 at 10:19 pm

      Christie stumping in Alaska for another Palin endorsed loser: ‘Vote for the teabagger or I’ll rip your head off and crap down your throat’ Have a nice day!

      • M D Reese October 30th, 2014 at 4:53 pm

        That’s funny–because it’s true and captures him completely!

        I hope that while Christie is up here, he runs into this Native lady. She is my current hero: (just scroll down a bit and you’ll see the video)

    this p.o.s clearly has no self control.

    • StoneyCurtisll October 29th, 2014 at 8:56 pm

      Thats why he had to have that lap band procedure..
      He cant control his anger any more than he can control his food intake..

    Will someone explain why it is that the President has to walk on eggshells when criticizing anyone who might oppose his policies, but Republican politicians can insult people in any manner they choose?

    Herman Cain can rant that “stupid” voters should stay home on election day.

    Sharon Day, co-chair of the RNC can call Wisconsin voters “not sharp as a knife”

    But the President is lambasted all across the right wing noise machine for comments about “clinging to guns and religion” or “you did not build that” where there was no ill intent at all.

    Is there a rational explanation for the double standard?

    Or is this just example #1,315,295 that Republicans are hypocrites?

    • StoneyCurtisll October 29th, 2014 at 9:24 pm

      Great comment~!
      Excellent question.
      Simple answer..(cause republicans are a-holes)

    • Bunya October 29th, 2014 at 9:46 pm

      I think it’s because the democrats are way too nice. And I understand why. Republicans will do nothing to make democrats bad. Nothing is too low for them. A democrat would never embarrass himself/herself by making a president’s sexual indiscretion their number one priority. Not so with republicans. They’ll go out of their way to embarrass their country, to make themselves look fooling, anything to get their way. It’s sad. Republicans shouldn’t be criticized. They should be pitied. But then again, they probably wouldn’t notice if they were being pitied, they’re that dense.

    This ass actually came to our state to stump with our head ass! I swear, they must be brothers from another mother. I can’t believe people think that these people are actually doing stuff for the benefit of all? I know LePage isn’t.

    • tiredoftea October 29th, 2014 at 11:14 pm

      Congratulations on getting Babs Bush to do a LePage commercial!

    Aside from the complete lack of decorum from Christie, the only other thing that was missing from his podium are a few boxes of Dunkin Donuts. (William can fix that pretty quick)

  9. crc3 October 29th, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    Christie is the epitome of a fat pompous ass…

    • rg9rts October 30th, 2014 at 2:03 am

      I have other adjectives but the filters won’t let them through

    Whatever happened to “Jersy Strong”? A little dose of reality for Gov. Christie about the difference between slogans and the sufferring of people displaced by the hurricane..

    GOPTPers seem to love bullies and “strong men.” Remember how they were drooling over Putin and saying he would make a better U.S. president than President Obama? Well, neither they nor Putin are saying much these days because Putin has a cratering economy he’s trying to save. President Obama smacked Russia with some harsh sanctions, sanctions GOPTPers said wouldn’t work. Putin has morphed from a bully to a weakling who is issuing useless threats to the U.S. and EU nations. His ass has been isolated from the international community and the Russian economy is in dire straits, leaving him little time to post bare-chested pics of him on social network sites.

    GOPTPers love emotional outbursts and empty, violence-tinged rhetoric. This partially explains why it’s so easy for them to focus on superficial qualities in their politicians and ignore the fact that a majority of them aren’t fit for political office. When their politicians fk up, they never blame them because to do so would mean they’d have to blame themselves for voting to put them in political positions, so they blame democrats and others for their lame-ass politicians.

    Christie is one rude SOB, and although his bully act will draw GOPTPers to support his presidential aspirations, if he wins the GOP presidential nomination in 2016, he will not end up in the WH. Christie has yet to learn that most Americans don’t like bullies and don’t cotton to the idea of having someone in the WH with a foul mouth and a serious anger management problem.

    Mitt is driving and Crispy is strapped to the roof.

    And this fat bastard want to be POTUS …he almost had everyone fooled but the bully is always there right below the phony facade

  15. Boehner-Monkey October 30th, 2014 at 2:24 am

    Sit down and shut up! That is, unless you have a large sack of White Castle Burgers, if so get up to the podium here right now.

    Christy gained a whole lot of attention also during the storm, he was instrumental in using my tax funds for people that failed to or shouldn’t have been living so close to the sea, they didn’t have insurance that covered what happened. He’s an emotional nightmare and a poof.
