Seems like everyone is shocked that Chris Christie is [being] a bully. To me, most political candidates—ESPECIALLY higher up in offices and/or offices in bigger cities—have always been bullies. Why the surprise with Christie? Do you believe he is being a bully or that what he is accused of doing isn't something new? Or even, that he's innocent as he says and had no idea?

There's no evidence Christie is, or has been, a bully... but the reason the left is attacking him relentlessly, is because he's the Republican front runner and he's polling better than Hillary.
