Are You Sitting Down? Not Chris Christie, He's Dancing!!
June, 14, 2014 | lee martell

Posted on 06/14/2014 4:44:01 PM PDT by lee martell

I could not believe what I was seeing. There was Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey doing a "Lindy" type routine with Jimmy Fallon. The piece was titled Evolution of Dad Dancing. I have to say, I admire his courage to get out there on nationwide camera giggling and jiggling in his blue short sleeved Polo Shirt, and his White Khaki pants yanked up north of his elbows. I'm somewhat overweight too, and I could not have done it. Of course, I don't expect to allow my name to be floated as a possible contender for GOP Presidential Nomination. Nor do I have to jump through hoops to distract the public from errors in judgement made by my personal staff (but not by me!). I was at the gym on my stationary bike with no volume on. I saw them both on TV dancing and joking around. The subtitle said; Chris Christie Dances Off Bridge Scandal! And me, standing here without a drop of eye bleach!

He’s pretty spry for a fat guy.

During most of the routine, he was moving better than Fallon.

Nowadays, being publicly stupid appeals to the lobotomized masses. Public integrity and modesty are out the window.

Yes, I’ll try to find the video. All I can say is Christie looks twice as big from the rear.

Wouldn’t it be a hoot if Christie and Cankles danced at some unity/reconciliation event?

Thank you for posting. I still need to get my nephew to show me how to post videos on this site. Yes. It’s embarrassing not to know how yet, but I plan to learn before this year is over.

If was ever inclined to vote for Christie that dance number would change my mind.

Ok, I thought it was funny.

Also, I like the difference between the republican and dem convention dancing. The pubs are trying to enjoy the music and fun, but know they can’t dance. The dems are trying to pull off that they can dance, and looking like fools! Perfect!

They talk about how much weight he has lost. I guess so ... but he has so much more to go.

I thought the weight loss surgery was supposed to bring out that guy!

That’s how I used to think back when I heard of; A. Obama’a Greek Columns, B. Lena Dunham; Campaign video for O, called “Your First Time!”, C. Michelle O, at a school visit, whirling a Hula Hoop around her ample derriere, with the waistband of her undershorts clearly visible., D. Lie Of The Year; “You can keep your doctor, PERIOD!”,E. I don’t want my daughters punished with a baby!.........And STILL the 47% Brick-Brained Nincompoops keep cheering in his corner. Don’t OVER-estimate the intelligence or the integrity of the majority of American voters

I’m pretty sure I know where that clip came from. Laurel and Hardy were dancing to the tune of “Shine On Harvest Moon”, Olly was singing (singing very well) and was accompanied by a farmer character who played his fiddle. Stan Laurel was also playing the Spoons. Olly ended the song walking down the road with Stan. They were both whistling. My family used to watch Laurel & Hardy movies, followed by Shirley Temple Movies every Sunday during our breakfast after 11am Mass at St. Cecilia. Good Times!

I, too, loved it. I don”t think I would vote for him fr President, but I respect his guts in doing this crazy dance. It seems obvious to me that he has lost a lot of weight. Let’s give him credit for this. I am sure it has no been easy.

Christie dead-panned it throughout.

I wish he'd done "The RINO!".

He is a horses ass....so he’s probably got a great chance to be the R nominee....based on who we came up the last few times.

What was Governor Crisco doing, the “Seismic Shuffle”?

He’s gone from being a 400 pound loudmouth tub of lard, to a 300 pound one. And that’s being generous.

Yes, I thought it was funny too. Christie’s got some Irish charm and truly the gift of performance.

OK, I get that it is stupid, I said to hubby: you know this is the most important interview Christie will ever give, if he does badly he’s done, if he does well he might still be POTUS.

I did not know there would be dancing!

So, I admire him for pulling it off so well. We do need more Pubbies that can connect with people and not be a bunch of stiffs.

LOL, good one!

We really did get a kick out of it, esp. since hubby’s brother has a lot of moves like that. He always does “the weed wacker”.

I said to hubby - oh my goodness, he’s doing the Uncle Tommy dance!

Compared with the picture of Guiliani in drag, I like this better.

If you notice how far he went into the knee bends, it’s impressive what shape he’s in, especially for his size.

Yeah, I still remember his populist stance against greedy public employee unions. He’s not conservative but I believe he’s a good guy. And I’m not prejudiced against overweight people.
