Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey has not been without controversy. This time it is because he called a law student former NAVY SEAL an idiot. The incident happened during a town hall meeting where every time Christie tried to make a point, 34-year-old William Brown interrupted him.

The debate turned into a shouting match and Mr. Brown was escorted out. This prompted Christie to say “And let me tell you something, if after you graduate from law school you conduct yourself like that in a courtroom, your rear end’s going to be thrown in jail, idiot,”

When asked today if he regretted his comments Christie said that he respected Brown’s military service but that”doesn’t give him the right to be a jerk.”

Christie has a history of getting into it with people at town hall meetings. In 2010 at a town hall meeting he asked a teach who was complaining about her pay. That she knew what the job payed when she started her career.

He also got into it with a teacher at a town hall meeting about the teacher’s unions role in thousands of teachers getting laid off.

    Seems to me telling someone to shut up and calling them an idiot is not politically correct, nor is it very mature. Mr. Christie, as an elected public servant, needs to reel in his temper and deal with his obvious anger issues. Mr. Christie has his sights set on the presidency. Not sure he is a realistic candidate. After all, “shut up, Putin, you idiot” probably would not serve our country very well.

      Hmm, maybe “shut up, Putin, you idiot” would serve our country very well!

    Here’s a word of advise to Gov. Christie. Navy Seals are trained by the U.S. government to be “professional killers.” And lay off the candy bars, Gov. Christie, you are not training for a sumo wrestling match.

    Gov Christy you are a breath of fresh air. Thank you for standing up and speaking your mind. If more of our politicians would stand up and say what needs to be said, maybe this country would be a lot better off. Ha! Any chance of you moving to California?
