On Monday, Christie unleashed a sharp-tongued counterattack on a regular caller named Mike, calling him a "bum" and a "communist."
Mike from Montclair began, "Governor, the next time you want to sit on the beach that is closed to the entire world except you, you put your fat ass in a car and go to one that is open to all your constituents, not just you and yours." Mike was referring to the controversy over Christies' lounging on the beach with his family that he had closed to the public due to a budget crisis.
Christie responded to Mike: "You know, Mike, I love getting calls from Communists in Montclair."
"You're a bully," Mike continued. "And I don't like bullies."
"Listen, I'm not the guy who came on the air, swore on the air . . . You're swearing on the air, Mike. You're a bum . . . What matters is what you do."
"What have you done?" Mike asked.
"What I just did is stop polluting the airwaves with a guy like that," Christie said as he hung up on Mike rather than answer the question.
Another caller, John from Montclair, said he represented everyone in New Jersey who didn't prefer Christie as their governor--which happens to be a lot of people. Christie's approval rating is lower than whale poop.
"You lost, John," Christie said, "so that shows how much you matter."
But how much does Christie matter?
Here's a guy who went to law school, became governor, and may become a sports radio personality. What a waste of a law degree.
