VIDEO: Christie Talks Down Romney Protester

He took on a woman at Exeter High School.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tonight talked down a group of protesters – and a woman in particular – who interrupted a huge Mitt Romney campaign event at .

Christie, rumored as a possible vice president pick for Romney, took on a protester who chanted "Mitt kills job!" and then "Christie kills jobs!"

You can watch the exchange in the video above.

The crowd numbered about 1,000. There were another 200-plus members of the media.

Romney went after President Obama, rarely mentioning his GOP rivals. He was joined onstage by New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, another rumored vice president pick for Romney.

There were two interruptions by protesters. The chants during the first interruption were inaudible. Romney paused, then went on to say that the people have the right to protest – just before police removed them from the event. The second interruption was mentioned above involving Christie.

The New Jersey governor received noticeably louder applause at several points than Romney did.

Well, while what he said was wrong we've got an Attorney General who only represents "his people."

Christie's next job is as a Macy's Thanksgiving day parade balloon. And now if you excuse me, I have a visiting cannibal and he's drooling all over the floor. "HON, where's the mop?"
Dora Glasberg January 09, 2012 at 02:49 PM
Christie is a thug who bought the NJ's Goverorship like the embezzler Corzine before him.
Dora Glasberg January 09, 2012 at 02:50 PM
Christie could destroy them with a few well aimed farts.

Christie is a bully.

Gov. Christie is the new Pander Bear for the Repubs. He panders a Jersey tough guy but underneath he is as rotten as the rest of them

It appears the libs are afeared of "fat bastard". Very well they should be. What a great team.

At least use spell check before you make a fool of yourself again.

You also have to prove you are a natural born citizen.
Edward Dunsel January 09, 2012 at 07:12 PM
Fred, I think its called the "Democratic" Party.
Jan Schmidt January 09, 2012 at 07:14 PM
I see, you believe that you shouldn't care about politics unless you get paid? I would guess you do then, how sad. And you might want to check you misuse of the English language there--- seems you have a little problem with nouns used as modifiers.

Dems have Terrorist George Soros dirty money on their hands....Terrorist Bill Ayers is another hater/ idiot left over from the 60's- Obama supporters are haters who should move to North Korea or Canada. Democrat Party full of hate bigger than Michelle's oversized Bo-donk-a-donk.

OMG - brain dead much?

@eric... is that you, Oily Taters?
Mark Weatherby January 09, 2012 at 07:46 PM
Yes Fred. Many Dem's expect welfare handouts and feel entitled. EBT cards are currently utilized by 17 per cent of Americans(and rising) and in many cases fraudulently. EBT cards are too much like a credit card- at least when peeps had to hand over and shell out food stamps there was a sense of embarrassment in the check out line-- now holding an EBT card is a sense of pride, that is wrong.

About Chris Christie....Thought I would weigh in here. Pun unintended, but left in after I typed it. I live in NJ and voted for him for Gov. His first 2 years in office have shown that he is a typical politician, just louder and ruder than most. He has used sound bites, controlled media and is very shrewd at convincing the masses of his accomplishments. But if you saw him full time, and knew the truth behind his statements of accomplishments, you would find a pol who twists the numbers and repeatedly claims victory when there is none. He has thrown some of his strongest supporters under the bus to cover his own mistakes. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't change my vote because the other guy (Corzine) was horrible and Christie has done some good things. But his arrogance and bully tactics can wear thin quickly. It bothers me that the rest of the country sees him as some kind of savior. He's not. He's just manipulating the system to appear that way.
ForThePeople January 10, 2012 at 03:27 AM
Don't worry, not fooled. I have watched many clips of him, and he does tend to elevate his voice and smirk at the same time, as if to invite his audience to an inside joke. My only concern about Christie was that he would actually run and win because the rest of this field will fail miserably against Obama. Which is a good thing. The Republican Party has descended into the depths of bigotry, hatred, racism, and religious extremism. This is not the same party from 30 years ago. It's a very polarized, extremist group right now working hard to gather the passions of a disenchanted audience.
Dora Glasberg January 10, 2012 at 06:42 PM
You left out Ronald McDonald and Charo

SheShe January 10, 2012 at 08:05 PM
