Chris Matthews Slams '300 Plus' Pounds Chris Christie, Too Fat to be President
NewsBusters ^ | Dec. 10, 2010 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 12/10/2010 9:57:30 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Hardball host Chris Matthews appeared at a local event in Washington D.C. on Thursday to trash Republican Chris Christie as too fat to be President. The Washington Examiner reported that Matthews derided the New Jersey governor, mocking, "Chris Christie is moon over New Jersey, he should not wear white shirts, I tell you that."

He continued, "I saw him the other day and I was amazed by it, he must be 300 plus, and that’s something he’s just gotta deal with because you’re not going to say, ‘I’m going to cut the budget,’ well, how about starting with supper?"

Matthews, who appeared at the WMAL radio event, continued to cheer for the man who gave him a thrill up his leg. Lobbying for more time, he insisted, "Shouldn’t this President be given another year before you dismiss him? Give him another year in the presidency before you begin to try to destroy him."

At least he doesn’t have anything running down his leg.

I guess he’s never heard of William Howard Taft.

Matthews needed a exorcism a long time ago & this is a result of the delay

Have the Communists given up on the “too stupid” meme? Are they now going with “Republicans are too FAT to be President”?/sarcasm

Obama thinks smoking keeps you thin.

What does Chrissy think about that?

Chris Christie is getting NJ’s fiscal house in order. I can see how much that bothers Matthews. Besides that, his stand on social issues is secondary. If government isn’t cut, forget about protecting the unborn. And voters don’t want a conservative version of Big Brother... they want to be left alone.

If that’s the worst you can say about Christie then Christie is a formidable challenger for ANY office.

Matthews can’t argue issues, so he just takes cheap shots.

He needs a mirror and a napkin.

Better yet, put a sock or a fist in his mouth.

Christie can always lose weight.

Chrissy, on the other hand, is stuck with stupid.

That huge Jaba_the_Hut Rep Jerome Nadler lost a lot of weight. So did Huckster. It’s harder to lose the pig snout Henry Waman has unless you get a rhinoplasty.

Obongo’s jug ears need to be pinned to his head.

What the hell does weight have to do with intellect? If Crissy were to hold this standard to everyone he knows ... Michael Moore should be on the top of his list.

Matthews takes cheap and vicious shots at conservative Republicans, and most often at Sarah Palin. I’m rather surprised he went after Christie, because he’s a man and Chrissy-the-libtard-sissy, most often targets women.

If there ware a reward for being a total brainless ass, Chrissy would win hands down. Second prize would go to Keith Olbermann

Christie will have his moment with Matthews. He is much sharper witted, and sharper tongued. Christie will bide his time, and when he lets little Chrissy have it, Chrissy will be mince meat.

Ooooohhhh, Hooooooooo Hooooooo,

Friend, that would be a tough fight...

I do think you´d have to have two accounts for first place...

And if some others go in to the contest...

More like there would be some 500 first place to add to...

I guess Chris Matthews doesn't get that tingle down his leg when he sees the NJ Governor. As for looks & brains, I think Chrissy M needs more of both before he tosses insults...

References to “Governor Crisco” are still kind of funny.

But Chrissie’s still an idiot.

Christie has already defused this. He specifically pointed out a sign at one of his press conferences that said “Chris Christie-To Big to Fail”.

Call for Matthews head. I’m sure there are a lot of overweight people who are offended by Matthews statements on the Governor being fat. Chris Matthews is callous and insensitive.

Zell Miller wanted to kill chrissie at the 2004 republicrat convention in NY... on the sidewalk in front of the convention. When being interviewed by chrissie... Zell said, “You had better be glad that they outlawed dueling”.

He meant it too... chrissie felt more than a tingle down his leg that night.

Taft was back in the time when people weren’t fixated on “weight” and “being thin”; people just were what they were and didn’t agonize over it. Obama is super thin, mostly just naturally so, but right now it doesn’t seem to be helping him much. He seems to be able to eat as he likes and still stay skinny; Michelle not so much. However, it isn’t likely that the celebrity culture worship that has permeated this country is going to allow for people in the culture being natural and normal any time soon. Meantime, you either have to cut loose from it emotionally or let it drive us nuts. I’m for letting common sense prevail and being natural and ourselves. If this one and that one don’t like you, so be it.
