Have you ever asked a victim of spousal abuse why they stay in a marriage in which they are the victim of either or both, physical and verbal abuse? The most common explanation given by victims of domestic violence is that when he/she is not in a state of rage he/she can be very kind and loving. “He really love me ya know…..”
Yes, Chris Christie showed his humanity beautifully in the post Hurricane Sandy days. Yes, Gov. Christie showed the nation that he can rise above politics if need be by being civil and friendly to Barack Obama in an age in which most Republicans hesitate to shake the President’s hand in public. And yes, for all intents and purposes, Chris Christie appear to be moderate and quite a bit more sane than some of the tea-party Republicans who have obviously initiated their 2016 Presidential campaigns.
But the question Americans will to have to ask themselves about the bombastic, thin-skinned, hot-headed New Jersey governor when the time comes:
Can we trust the most important and powerful leadership position in the world to a man who has given us ample evidence time and again that he has a temper that is not always under control?
(Reprinted from the November 2, 2013 edition of the Daily Kos)
That’s what Chris Christie shouted today while his wife smiled at New Jersey public school teacher, Melissa Tomlinson, who dared approach him at the Rutgers football game rally and ask the question, “Why do you portray New Jersey Public Schools as ‘failure factories?'”
Everyone knows Chris Christie loves to be rude and shout at people. Shouting at public school teachers is a ‘thing’ of his that he enjoys. 99% of the time the people he chews out are women.
The teacher who was bold enough to ask Christie this question admits she was shaking when he jabbed his finger in her face and shouted at her, but she’s still proud of what she did. We’re proud of her too.
It’s a shame Christie will most likely be relected governor on Tuesday, which is probably why he felt it was no big deal to be photographed shouting at a single woman who dared to ask him a question. So nice to see what he really thinks of his constituents and how he treats them.
