New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) addressed claims that he is "a bully" during a Thursday press conference relating to allegations that several of his aides crafted a political revenge plan that caused traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge.

"I have very heated discussions and arguments with people in my own party and on the other side of the aisle. I feel passionately about issues. And I don't hide my emotions from people. I am not a focus-group tested, blow-dried candidate or governor," Christie said. "But I am not a bully."

Christie has been involved in several highly publicized shouting matches with constituents ranging from a New Jersey teacher to a former Navy SEAL, leading to claims that the governor is a bully. Christie has said he is simply being brutally honest when confronted with "idiots."
