GOP Golden Boy Chris Christie is going to run in 2016, and he might not even do so as a Republican. Seriously.
So, will he challenge the highly beatable Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination? Maybe. But all signs point to the whalelike New Jersey governor floating himself as a middleman, neither right nor left the Chosen One to solve all the discord in the nations capital:
Sound insane? Well, the man who clearly cant control his base impulses (hes fat) doesnt know where he fits into the 2016 scheme. (Get it? Where he fits in?) Hes trying to squeeze into a packed elevator. Sure, the sweaty bloom went off the flabby rose very quickly, but its clear Mr. Christie will Jeez, that guy is really, really fat, right?
OK, enough fat jokes. America has had fat presidents. William Howard Taft was big as a pig, often dozed off while eating, and had sky-high blood pressure to go with his BMI of 42.3 but he had a lovely golf swing! Boozehound Grover Cleveland, at 5 feet 11 inches and more than 250 pounds, was known to his nieces and nephews as Uncle Jumbo, but he got the job done. Teddy Roosevelt was a bulbous butterball, yet he could hog-tie a steer in seconds (then eat an entire hog).
Still, you have to go back to FDR, first elected in 1932, to find a president as unhealthy as the New Jersey governor. Sure, JFK was a pill-popping drunk, and Bill Clinton was a Big Mac-inhaling chunkbucket, but both were young and good-looking when they were elected. Same, sorta, for George W. Bush, and James Earl Carter. Ronald Reagan was old, but virile and fit. So was George H.W. Bush, in that Boston Brahmin way....

wasn’t this the guy ann coulter was pushing, or am I confused
He is not going to switch parties. He is not going to run for president.
Against Christie Obama might as well run for an illegal 3rd term, no controlling legal authority. Christie can’t win.
Christie cant win.
You’re right. It’s over even before the Fat Man sings.
The GOP will nominate him to ensure that no matter who wins, he or hillary- a liberal will president for the next 8 years-
And now for soem good news-
Aw crap- I guess I don’t have any
Our only hope is IF Ted Cruz runs- IF he can garner enough support- althoyugh I suspect the GOP will jump on the left’s bandwagon in demonizing him
Fat boy will be running in the GOP primary long enough to screw Conservatives in the primary. Then he runs as an indy once the damage is done. He’s toast in the South and he knows it.
Christie’s only hope of getting to Washington is if Barry gets a third term and Barry rewards his favorite fatboy with a cabinet post.
First of fall, the “whale” got lap banded. He will have a washboard tummy by 2016. Maybe he will have some Democrats high-fiving him too. Independents will say Christie was a governor who has the interest of the people of New Jersey over politics. He was willing to work with Obama and high-five him. He may even win the nomination.
Middle of the road will not cut it.
We either get a new President that can begin correcting all the damage done by 8 years of Obama or we get a President that will continue the Nations destruction......
At over 400# and climbing, there would be scant need for a Vice President. A little known constitutional provision (it's in the back of Mark Levin's Dog Book) is taken from small sailboat racing rules ......."crew weight may not exceed 500 lbs."
He would therefore not need a Vice President! Think of the savings!
