Warren Buffett Is Working Chris Christie’s Last Nerve

As you may have noticed, when New Jersey Governor Chris Christie doesn’t like a position someone has taken, he generally responds with some variation of telling the person taking it to go fuck themselves. Usually he adds little flourishes, like exaggeratedly rolling his eyes, or storming out of the room, or mocking people for being too sensitive, or letting his adversaries (constituents et al.) know that the decisions he makes are “none of their business,” or telling them things like “you should see me when I’m really pissed” and “get the hell off the beach– you’re done.” Most of the time he gives off the vibe that he would love to punctuate his comment by throwing the contents of a large fountain soda in his sparring partner’s face but he’s an elected official so a little restraint must be shown.

In an interview yesterday, Christie was asked about Warren Buffett’s call to raise taxes on the super rich and, spoiler alert, he thinks the Oracle of Omaha should shut his trap and fast, ’cause the Governor no longer wants to hear it. Christie sent the message via Piers Morgan but rest assured he’d gladly do it in person.

    Morgan: how many billionaires are there in NJ?
    Christie: I have not a clue.

    If Buffett's not careful, Christie will extend arts & crafts time by 4 hours.

    It's fair to say Christie roundly discredited Buffett in that interview.

    Taking into account that most of Christie's campaign money came from Spear, Leeds and Kellogg (You remember them, the specialists and market makers that kept those spreads nice and wide and were always front running the public) maybe the fat man should shut-up. Since Reg NMS cam into being most specialists and market makers are unemployed and unemployable (including Chris Christie's brother)

    guess you misjudged.

  24. Posted by Fat Sajack | February 22, 2012 at 1:13 PM

    Christie misheard the interviewer. Easy mistake. His anger was actually directed at Warren's Buffet in New Jersey. Ever since the place went all-you-can-eat, curiosity has yielded to temptation one too many times.

    And Christie's responsible for disproving your state's favorite declaration.

    Gov. Bull Bullie is a bully and a boor. Period.

    Mr. (and I use the term advisedly) Christie is a boor.

    If Democrats have a problem with the amount of civility today, they should lead by example.

    Having Joe Biden apologize for calling the Tea Party "terrorists" or having the teachers union fire the official who said he would be happy to see Christie dead are two places to start.
