I'm still wondering how "contempt for constituents that disagree with him" is considered a political strength for Christie....

In the general context of where the GOP is at, I don't think Chris Christie makes liberals heads explode. So that's the first thing to say about him.

But, if there's anything that this video shows, is Christie's obnoxious habit (and lack of appropriate social skills) of shouting people down, condescendingly, when he is in a position of power, standing on the podium, microphone in hand, audience cheering at him. He lacks the social graces that come with real greatness.

And let's be clear, calling someone "sweetheart" in this context is one of the worst insults, at least in New Jersey.

That's kind of like saying the customer is always right. Truth is some of those little pissants need to be put in their place.

If you're trying to get elected, isn't the customer/voter always right?

Sometimes the electorate is aligned with coarsely expressed politicking. See: Rahm Emmanuel as an example.

Relatedly, haven't you picked up on a expressional style not unlike Christie's in your new environs (NJ)? Especially contrasted with your day to day in the good Carolina?

In all fairness, those leftists are trying to disrupt an event for people who disagree with them. Chanting loudly is rude in the first place. Christie is showing a proportionate amount of disrespect.

Yes, you're right. Part of Christie's performance is related to the rude manners and exaggerated expressions mixed sometimes with humor that's very prevalent in New Jersey. Most politicians (and other professionals and public figures) adopt a more polished stance. But Christie likes the "on your face" attitude all too much.
