New Jersey Governor…and the media….

Chris Christie

Ok…if you’re a politcian…

You are supposted to have thick skin….

Things like this don’t get you points with the media…

Even if you may be right….

Who you work with everyday and need………

They guy HAS been picked on by the media ever since he signed up to run…..

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie opened up Thursday on a reporter who challenged the Republican’s tone, telling the reporter that he “must be the thinnest-skinned guy in America.”

The reporter, Star-Ledger columnist Tom Moran, was inquiring about a contentious school voucher bill the governor is trying to push through the state Legislature.

“Governor, do you think this sort of confrontational tone can increase your odds in getting this through the Legislature?” Moran asked at a news conference.

After identifying the reporter by name, Christie responded: “You must be the thinnest-skinned guy in America.”

“If you think that’s a confrontational tone, then you should really see me when I’m pissed,” he said. “That’s not confrontational. I love when people say they don’t want to have an argument, that’s what we were sent here for.”

Christie then said he wasn’t bothered by tempers flaring in the state’s political dialogue, pointing out that he intends to be tough in his opposition to Democratic initiatives.
