New Jersey’s often-unedited Republican governor, Chris Christie, this week compared unions opposing a statewide teacher pay freeze to his daughter having a tantrum. "You all laugh, but this is the crap I listen to in New Jersey," Christie said on Tuesday night at an chris,christie,new,jersey,teach,unions,pay,freezeeducation forum in Washington, D.C., reports the Wall Street Journal.

Christie’s blunt manner and ongoing battles to cut state spending have earned him notoriety beyond New Jersey in his 10 months as governor -- a span he said “feels like three years.”

He had a receptive audience on Tuesday in the Foundation for Excellence in Education, whose members applauded his calls to void the current teachers union contract as part an educational overhaul that would also include tougher academic standards and charter schools.
