Christie Tries to Work the Room and Fails



In his latest townhall, Chris Christie tried to resort to his old style of working the room. This time his ability to charm, deflect, intimidate and obfuscate didn't have that same old Christie magic. Here's why: people are no longer afraid and they are pissed.

For Christie, Awkward Return to a Setting He Once Ruled

When Chris Christie started to talk over a complaining questioner, a signature tactic of the bellicose, pre-scandal governor, the audience here briefly turned on him. “Answer the question,” some shouted.

When he took a microphone from a long-winded speaker, the man startled Mr. Christie by snatching it right back.

And when he singled out a young woman as his inspiration for repairing the Hurricane Sandy-battered coastline, he failed to grasp that the girl’s mother — sitting just a few feet from Mr. Christie — was angry with him for not doing enough.

“He’s full of it,” she said
.

It worked — at least for a while. Christie entered his 110th town-hall-style event in Port Monmouth, a blue-collar Shore town battered by the storm, without his self-promotional video. The Springsteen soundtrack was dialed down. So was the Christie swagger and sarcasm.

But then Tom Largey, a Sea Bright resident whose home was badly damaged by the storm and who is living with relatives, confronted Christie.

Why was so much money, Largey asked, being spent on private contractors to handle the storm recovery, particularly Hammerman & Gainer, the Louisiana-based company that was quietly let go by the administration in December? After all, New York did just fine without hiring outsiders.

The crowd lustily applauded Largey, not Christie. The calm empathizer was now seething, defensive.

"What's your suggestion on how I should have done it?" Christie shot back. "Should I have hired thousands of new government employees to be able to administer these programs?"

"Answer the question!" barked one woman. Heads turned in irritation. Two men loudly cleared their throats

I apologize if this has been posted.. I hadn't seen it before.

It's really good to see that more people in New Jersey are finally catching on to the sociopathic schmoozer!

50. Any pounding you might endure by a bully, unprotected by onlookers, is NOTHING compared to

the pounding you'd give yourself if you failed to stand up for justice. That's the price of character. Steep, but worthwhile. As a matter of fact you don't really have any other option.

Besides, when bullies realize they can't keep you down even if they might knock you down sometimes, they'll be a little more inclined to think twice because they're also lazy.

Personally, I like to encourage them to think thrice (at least) by leaving all the bite and claw marks possible, regardless of who 'wins'. Maybe that knocks me down a notch or two on the honor scale, but I've also noticed if they think - right or wrong - that their intended target welcomes the chance to whip their butt, it saves a lot of wear and tear on both of you. That's one reason the xenophobic trogs here don't pick on me directly very often; years of experience taught them I'll fight the devil himself and come back for more. That in itself, by my lights, means I've earned my peace and quiet. If I've been cut down to a mere 5', there are plenty of other folks walking around short a few body parts too.

At a Town Hall Meeting, Christie Blames Obama, FEMA, Feds for Sandy Aid Problems

"In a bit, we’ll get to how Christie unleashed a barrage of anti-government, anti-Washington and pro-privatization rhetoric in response to questions about Sandy assistance. But for most of the attendees at the town hall, it was a chance to listen and ask questions of a very personal nature, hoping against hope that the governor and his aides would promise to help. Before the event got underway, your Christie Watch reporters talked to quite a few audience members, and all had tales of woe, of heartbreak and discouragement, even desperation. Joe Wernock, an out-of-work construction and demolition man from Keansburg, lost nearly everything and recovered only $20,000 from insurance. “I want to find out what’s going on,” he said. “The insurance company said that they can’t insure me now unless I lift the house, and I can’t afford to lift the house. They’re fighting with everybody, the people across the street, the guy down the street.” Ron and Jessica Sickler, of Fort Monmouth, said that their house is gutted. “We pay the mortgage in Fort Monmouth and we pay rent in Tinton Falls,” said Jessica. “I think the funds could have been handled better.”

46. Wow.

Responding to Christie, Representative Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) said:

When Hurricane Sandy bore down on the Northeast, I fought alongside my colleagues to ensure the federal government delivered the resources New Jersey families desperately needed to rebuild their lives. Instead of playing partisan politics and passing the buck, the Governor should focus on correcting the botched rollout of the state-run RREM [Rehabilitation, Reconstruction, Elevation and Mitigation] program that has left scores of New Jersey families out in the cold.

The federal government cannot be blamed for the state’s lack of transparency, lost applications and the mysterious firings of Sandy contractors. More than a year after the storm, there are still folks not back in their homes that deserve answers. It’s time for Governor Christie to take responsibility for his administration’s mismanagement and do what’s right by the people of New Jersey.


The GOP gave Christie free reign to spend that money as he saw fit. (States rights and all) I really wish I could find that link. I bookmarked it on my older computer.

This has been reminding me for a while of what has been happening in New Orleans after Katrina.

45. If you have any time, flamingdem.. you should check out this

article from The Nation on that very same Town Hall where he blames everything on Obama, FEMA, and the FEDS.

67. Thanks Cha!

You're probably already following Kornacki but here's the show Up With Steve:

Christie’s relationship with Democrats
The Up panel discusses how New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has conducted politics in the past by cutting deals with Democrats in his state, sometimes at the expense of Republicans.

I think this is 2/22 and 2/23

60. Thank you for the link to the C-Span's vid of

Christie's Town Hall, she.

I'm about to fall off to sleep so I don't think I'll be watching. Not "boring" sleepy.. which I think it should denote, anyway.

As for Christie going down.. check out this promising turn of events..

58. Remembering how humble

this bully was when he needed government help after Sandy. Then the rug was pulled out from under him. He's a punk and the sooner he's out of there, the better off the citizens will be. But I want to add that it isn't just this lard-azz. It seems that politicians and corrupting go hand in hand - always has and always will as long as they are able to steal their way to the top. Such a pity.

78. As Laxman noted upthread.. this

Town Hall Meeting was in one of his "strongholds".. and even they were a little bit Pissed!

Christie fooled a lot of people for a LONG time!

Christie's under the microscope! Thanks to Christie's own corruption and the intrepid local reporters who Rachel is always giving a shout to!

80. Thanks for these quotes. The MSM said the townhall went well.

The MSM did not offer any quotes, their only substantiation for their conclusion was that no one asked about Bridgegate.

This is why I keep checking DU...and your posts in particular, Cha!

81. The corporatemediawhore$$$$ M$M.. they wouldn't be

happening to be covering for Christie like always.. would they, SunSeeker!?

These Town Hall People at Port Monmouth are worried about Sandy Funds for their homes and their lives.. which Christie blamed on Obama, FEMA, and the FEDS. So, he thinks he good. The M$M didn't call him out on that did they?

Let mr "I don't know nothing" try having a Town Hall in Hoboken. Not gonna happen.

Mahalo, SunSeeker~

yesterday.. I couldn't believe it hadn't been posted. Here was Christie in his element.. shootin' the breeze with his fans only this time they wanted him to "Answer the Question!" and saying things like "he's full of it." and "RESIGN CHRISTIE"..

Heard the US M$M said Christie did fine.. brawawawawawaaaaa
