Christie’s 2014 in quotes: ‘Sit down and shut up’

Gov. Chris Christie is rarely at a loss for words, and the ones he uses often generate headlines.

Some of his most memorable lines from this year include his telling a heckler to “sit down and shut up” and saying that he was “embarrassed and humiliated by the conduct of some of the people on my team” in the wake of the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal.

For his future, his common refrain of “I’m thinking about it” may be the most important quote. That’s Christie’s answer when he’s asked whether he intends to run for the Republican nomination for president next year.
