Governor Chris Christie came to national prominence in large measure through his unorthodox “Jersey style” of giving as good as he gets from citizens at his Town Hall meetings and reporters back in the early days of his administration when he talked to the New Jersey press corp. Calling a reporter “thin skinned” and telling him “you should see me when I’m really pissed,” calling a reporter and a former Navy seal an “idiot,” telling former Asbury Park Councilman Jim Keady to “sit down and shut up,” and many other “Youtube moments” have contributed to Christie’s national appeal and also been a cause for concern for many about his temperament should he become President of the United States.
On Tuesday afternoon at a Town Hall meeting at Old Bridge High School, Cheryl Meyer, a kindergarten teacher in Woodbridge, asked Christie to explain.
