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.

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.
