Chris Christie to Jersey Shore Heckler: Keep Walkin', Big Shot!

by at . Comments

Outspoken N.J. Gov. Chris Christie got into a heated altercation with a heckler on a Jersey Shore boardwalk Thursday night, and it was all caught on tape.

The popular but controversial Republican was hanging with his family in Seaside Heights when some guy made snide comments about education policy.

Christie, 49, was far from pleased, walking toward the heckler and saying, "You're a real big shot ... you're a real big shot shootin' your mouth off."

If nothing else, it's worth watching Christie in a short-sleeve shirt eating ice cream on the same boardwalk the Jersey Shore gang hangs out on ...

The man shouted, "Nah, just take care of the teachers!" Now more heated, Chris Christie shouted, "Keep walkin' away ... really good ... keep walkin'!"

The heckler's comments likely stem from Christine's recent bill expanding public funding for charter schools, rather than struggling public schools.

Christie has been rumored as a possible GOP V.P. candidate, but his bluntness, temper and unpredictability could work as much against him as for him.

In recent years, he's called reporters "stupid" and "idiots" and mixed it up with citizens at town hall meetings, becoming a political YouTube star.

He also told people to "get the hell off the beach" because "I am not messing around" during Hurricane Irene last summer, which was awesome.
