Via NBC News New York: Governor Christie was taken to task by Occupy Wall Street protestors while campaigning for Mitt Romney in Iowa. Taken aback by the display, the Governor was rendered silent and nearly lost the crowd as the protestors chanted “put people first.” The Governor referred to the protestors as “jokers” who needed to “work it out for themselves” – obviously a very different crowd compared to the fawning, handpicked supporters he usually deals with in New Jersey.

During her appearance on NBC’s Today Show Tuesday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow explained the political strategy being used by Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

“I think Chris Christie is really good at polishing his own brand,” Maddow told host Ann Curry. “And his brand at this point is ‘I’m the guy who’s really good at screaming at my own constituents.’”

“Chris Christie is auditioning for vice president. Chris Christie would like to be taken seriously on the national stage. That’s why he’s embarrassing himself in his own state… He is auditioning and his brand is ‘I will be rude’ and rudeness is actually what he’s trying to sell as a form of political authenticity,” she added.

Gov. Christie was on The Today Show today and was asked how he managed to get historic reforms through the Legislature. He said he worked closely with Senate President Steve Sweeney and Speaker Sheila Oliver. And they should cooperate in Washington too. Of course the question of Christie running for higher office came up and Matt Lauer commented he hadn’t heard “No!” so much since he asked the home coming queen to the prom. The governor said he felt Matt’s pain. The governor is on Meet The Press Sunday too. (06/24/2011)
