Chris Christie caught up in Twitter fight over train delays

Although the 2016 presidential race is still two years away, some differences are already emerging in the field of likely Republican candidates. For example, if you ask Rand Paul a question he doesn’t like, he’ll probably walk away. But that’s not New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s style, who took a break from his recent California vacation to pick fights with stranded commuters back home.

On Aug. 8, an NJ Transit commuter train was delayed because of a track issue and, upon hearing of the problem, Christie decided to send a little message of encouragement.

But Christie apparently underestimated how volatile of a population stranded commuters are on a hot day in August.

Now, just about any other politician in… well, the world, would let a few critical tweets just pass by. After all, it doesn’t really benefit you to get into a Twitter yelling match with the people you represent. But that’s not Christie’s style.

Christie and one commuter in particular, Patrick Daly, got after it in a back-and-forth tizzy the likes of an Atlantic City boxing match; albeit about infrastructure spending.

It didn’t take long for the conversation to get personal.

The exchange continued on for a while before both guys basically just got tired and no one really won, except Daly who received some praise from fellow Twitter users.

One can only hope that if Christie does run for president, this is how he deals with issues on a national level. At the very least, it would be entertaining.
