50. Also known as "Christie's Forty-Seven-Percent-Moment" (Good-natured jabs, my donkey)

His spokesman HAD to claim it was good-natured once the recording became public -- because it wasn't supposed to become public:

...Organizers said the event was officially off the record, although many attendees, based on previous years' experience, believed it to be on the record. In any case, when you’re running for president, nothing is ever off the record. Ask Mitt Romney, whose comments about the “47 percent” at a fundraiser closed to the press went viral.

Duh. You'd think after what happened to Mitt, he would have been just a touch more circumspect about the possibility of his speech going live. At least, he apparently used to be more circumspect:

In past years, Christie has made a video for the event, including one he did with Cory Booker that went viral after his office released it online. But Christie told the roomful of reporters that he wasn’t interested in producing more videos. “The reason we don’t have a video is that we just don’t give a s--- anymore,” Christie said.“We don’t give a s--- about this or any of you.”

But it would have been such a terrific opportunity to look presidential, humble and even-handed at the same time -- why did he change his mind this year?

Christie ridiculed The Star-Ledger, the state’s largest newspaper. "...(T)hey don’t care if you are a conservative...or a liberal...There will always be a place and a paycheck in their paper for angry drunks.”

He focused much of his ire on (reporter Phil) Mulshine, (who) sang a song questioning the sexuality of U.S. Sen. Cory Booker. During his first campaign, Booker addressed rumors that he was gay...“Tonight, a song on Cory Booker being gay, oh, you have really reached a new high, pat yourself on the back,” Christie said sarcastically...Mulshine, in response to an IBTimes inquiry...said he understood the event to be off the record...

Such an ingrate -- Mulshine could have sang a song questioning the credibility of David Samson. But at least Christie took a stand against gay smears, good-natured or not:

Christie mocked (reporter Claude) Brodesser-Akner...“I’m not even going to try the last name, not because I can’t pronounce French last names or whatever it is, but because, again, I don’t give a s---...This is a guy who says he doesn’t know what I’m doing every day...Then just get the f--- away from me. Every time I turn the corner in New Hampshire, you and that beard are there. So here’s my suggestion: Open your eyes, clean the s--- out of your ears, and pay attention.”

So much for taking a stand -- but Christie's weight may make it hard to stay on his feet for long. And now for the real reason why you didn't do a video this year, you lying egomaniac: Though you may be taking in less food, your appetite for retribution is as obese as ever.

You were so hot-to-trot to cuss out the press for not apologizing for Bridge(t)-Gate, you ignored the consequences of your speech going public. With the event being off the record, was it your game plan to deny anything that was said, and cut off access to anyone who snitched? Well, you're on the record now!
