. Chris Christie lashed out Wednesday at a former White House doctor who said she worries about the governor dying in office because he is so heavy, telling her to "shut up."
Dr. Connie Mariano, who served as White House physician from 1992 to 2001, told CNN she'd like to see Christie run for president in 2016 but that he needs to lose weight. She said she worries he could have a heart attack or stroke.
"I'm worried about this man dying in office," the doctor, who has a practice in Scottsdale, Ariz., told the network.
During a visit Wednesday to a shore town devastated by Superstorm Sandy, Christie was asked about the doctor's comments.
Unless Mariano gives him a physical exam and learns his family history, "she should shut up," the governor said.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
-C. S. Lewis
Reminds me of an old Beatles song...

I’m even more worried about some fat fool who stuffs a donut in his pie-hole on the Letterman Show even being ELECTED to office.
True. My age is showing and I can’t remember what I was thinking....
Oh, no, you can’t tell anything by looking at people. They only call it “morbidly obese” as a joke./s
Christie is soooo dumb.
Obama gets his Sandy photo-op with the clueless one and then has his henchman stab him in the back.
I guess over the years Christie hasn’t noticed that Obama always keeps his hands clean while his team does the dirty work.
For that alone he doesn’t deserve to be president.
I figured you must have been thinking of “I am the Walrus”
I suffer from mental-pause myself. But take heart...it is good to be old in this day and age.
Our CEO is married to her.
She’s a very nice and VERY accomplished lady and her husband is a very loyal Republican (Canadian refugee turned American).
I’m tempted to run up to his office and ask him what he thinks.
So...Chris Christie could have a heart attack or a stroke.
Here’s a news flash for you, liberal Doc....so could I, so could you, so could any of us.
Conversely I could be hit by a stray meteor, or run over by a Good Humor truck, or be bitten by a Sydney Funnel Web Spider who just happened to hitch a ride over in a case of Fosters.
These Liberal Morons really DO think they’re God!
Do not pick on “Tubby the Doughboy”!
This reminds me of the time that David Letterman had his bypass surgery and one of the first guests he had on after his return was John Goodman. Goodman turned to him and said something like “Imagine you going up on that table before me.” Just goes to show you never can tell...
She’s FAR from being a liberal and she’s right.
Sorry, but my chances of heart attack or stroke are significantly less than Christie’s. Those are just the facts.
You can’t do a thing about meteors, but managing your only real asset should be a high priority.
We don’t have to like Christie to be disgusted by the ugly health nazis and their insults. For good or for worse, Christie LOOKS like New Jersey which is part of his popularity. One of the reasons Criminal Corzine lost his election was he targetted Christie’s weight in political ads. Jerseyeans did not take kindly to it.
That said, I voted for the tubby Rino and will not be doing it again!!
This doctor may not know what he’s talking about, but this is a real issue if Christie wants to be president. I’m still posses no one told us FDR was at death’s door in 44. Most people didn’t even know he was a cripple, for peteing out loud. It was relevant that Reagan and McCain were oldtimers. I’m not even asking for divulgence of secrets like Kennedy’s Atkinson’s. We can’t discuss the obvious?
Stick an apple in piggy’s mouth...he’s done.
You might want to knock wood after that post!
