Christie, cutting him off, said: "Did I say on topic? Are you stupid? On topic, on topic. Next question."

And he can't even have the reporters tortured for their impertinence. that's just SO unfair!

Meh, the reporter will wear it like a badge of honor. When a politician says they're sticking to one topic, it's incumbent on at least one reporter to go off-topic.

He should have interrupted him mid speech; then he would have been a conservative hero.

Well, the reporter WAS stupid.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Thanks for nothing, subby.

The interview was then interrupted when Christie's lunch of a side of beef and a 55 gallon drum of diet Coke was delivered.

Someday he will snap and devour a live reporter without mustard. Then everyone will appreciate how much restraint he is exercising now.

Maybe because a politician doesn't get to dictate to the press what they're allowed to ask about.

"What an extraordinary leader," Romney said

Yeah, he's cut from the same cloth as Donald Trump and Leona Helmsley.

GAT_00: Maybe because a politician doesn't get to dictate to the press what they're allowed to ask about.


Arrangements are usually made under which that is exactly what happens...trading access for message control. Chuck Schumer holds Sunday press conferences almost every week and in more than a decade I don't think I've ever heard anybody ask him an off-topic question.

A reporter who knows how to work press secretaries can often get his question answered in other ways.
 
2012-07-02 10:24:53 AM
Why are we supposed to feel bad about childishly calling him fat again?

I suspect that if the politician in question is respectful it helps. Christie is very far from respectful if anyone questions him.
 
2012-07-02 11:49:00 AM
Yeah, this guy definitely has the temperament for VP. "Go fark yourself" for every Democrat in the Senate

I'll take combative every time over some oily "that's a great question, Chet" non-answer.

And then he ate the Rancor.
 
2012-07-02 12:06:45 PM
If only he would talk to some of the tea baggers, racists, and bible pounders in his own party. The GOP needs more like him, but sadly he'll still say and do stupid things when forced to by the party during an election year.
 
2012-07-02 12:07:19 PM
Republicans have shrewdly created a situation where if they tell the media to fark off it is because of the liberal media conspiracy and any negative reporting is also part of the liberal media conspiracy.
 
2012-07-02 12:08:27 PM
Chris Christie is totally in my face. He doesn't care whose toes he steps on. He's got attitude and badditude. He doesn't just get busy, he gets bizzay!
 
2012-07-02 12:08:30 PM
Why is Christie even on the VP short list? The GOP already has the angry fat white guy vote locked up?

/some Fark politics contributors excepted of course...
 
2012-07-02 12:09:57 PM
Sounds like he'd make a perfect Dick Cheney.
 
2012-07-02 12:10:04 PM
Now every press conference must have reporters asking off topic questions so they can sowcase how unstable Christie is.

He does talk to the tea baggers, racists, and bible pounders in his own party. He tells them how much he supports them and their positions and then asks them to pass the mashed potatoes.

Have you SEEN the rest of the VP short list?

Because Mitt Romney has the emotional maturity of a college freshman who just arrived at a frat house.

What did he spend the money his mother gave him for charm school on? 65 Big Macs?

Reporters were told the governor would only answer questions about a major problem at a water treatment plant, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.

What CNN didn't say in the article was that 200,000 people were without water on a +90 degree day, due to a bridge collapse. That was the "problem" at the water facility.

Well, at least he didn't tell the guy to go suck some cock, like he did with the female hecklers. I suppose you have to give some sort of credit for that.

Because he's been eating the other VP contenders. It used be called the long list.

FTFA: "That man really is something, you know that? I was hoping someone in here would start to heckle him so I could watch him go to town here. But you know better, don't ya? What an extraordinary leader," Romney said, according to pool reports.

Wow, look at that. Mitt The Bully was actually HOPING that Christie would get to be an asshole to someone.

This guy is so classy.

When do we finally admit that Christie's whole "agressive fat slob from Jersey" routine has gotten stale? He seems to consistently get a pass on being a douchebag, as if a lack of common courtesy just goes hand in hand with gluttony.

Like I said, college freshman at a frat house. "Dude did you see Matt over there? He's like a senior and like head brother or something like that. Dude man, that guy can drink SO much beer! You should have seen him!"

King Christie gets all sweaty and upset when the proles ask questions.

Since he's a politician, he'll be sure to get a replacement heart quickly regardless of who else is on the waiting list.

He is fat and aggressive but in this case he is holding a press conference to discuss one issue, not an open forum.

I don't think he knows what 'leader' means.

Silly Jesus: Well, the reporter WAS stupid.


Reporter was stupid and Christie was a dick about it. It is fully possible to remind the reporter of the rules without utilizing personal attacks. Off the top of his head in the spur of the moment, perhaps he gets a pass. But then at the very end, it was also fully possible for Christie to walk away without saying:

"Thank you all very much, and I'm sorry for the idiot over there. Take care," he said before walking away.

There are things I like about Christie, including his candor. But it's fully possible to be candid without being a complete douchenozzle. Verbal abuse is also candid.

Does Romney ever go without a day showing he was is an ass?

So I imagine I will see all the right wingers in this thread who attacked Obama for not being ok with someone shouting questions while Obama was STILL DELIVERING HIS SPEECH be fair and attack Christie for this too. Riiiiiight?

*crickets*

Yep that's what I thought.

monoski: He is fat and aggressive but in this case he is holding a press conference to discuss one issue, not an open forum.

Fair enough, but calling the reporter "stupid" at the time and then saying "sorry about that idiot" at the end? That's fat-slob-faux-tough-guy talk right there, and if Christie wasn't shaped like Jackie Gleason people would have objected to it. As it is, everyone just sort of chuckles and moves on, which is bullsh-t.
