Christie battles hecklers at Romney event
One of these days, the left is going to wake up and realize that new Jersey Governor Chris Christie is more than they can handle.
At a Romney event in New Hampshire, Christie was interrupted by some chanting OWS supporters and brought the crowd to its feet with his response.
Referring to President Obama's class warfare rhetoric, Christie said that Obama's solution was to take "pie" from those who had a bigger "piece," keep the bulk of it, and then give some to those with a smaller piece. In contrast to that, "what Mitt Romney believes that the size of the American piece is infinite," Christie said.
When he was interrupted during his remarks by Occupy protesters shouting, "Christie kills jobs! Christie kill jobs!" Christie deadpanned, "Really?"
"Somebody's going down tonight, but it ain't going to be jobs, sweetheart," Christie rejoined from the stage as the chanting continued from a cluster in the audience. "There's this confusion that's out there because if she was in New Jersey ... she would know that we created 60,000 new private sector jobs."
Saying that the female protester was "blinded" by her enthusiasm for Obama, Christie continued, "And if she wasn't so disoriented by the loss of hope and change, she'd understand that ... Mitt Romney is the hope for America's future."
He went on to blast Obama to the clapping and cheering attendees as a "Chicago ward politician."
No matter who emerges as the nominee, Chris Christie will probably be the star of the fall campaign. When it comes to politics as a street fight, he's the GOP's best.
