Glenn Beck: Chris Christie a ‘fat nightmare’
politico.com ^ | December 20, 2013 | LUCY MCCALMONT

Posted on 12/20/2013 11:24:41 AM PST by Tailgunner Joe

Glenn Beck is slamming New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his record — and his weight — calling the governor a “fat nightmare.”

“Chris Christie is a fat nightmare. He is a nightmare,” Beck said in an interview with CNN’s S.E. Cupp that is set to air on Friday’s “Piers Morgan Live.”

Cupp, who is guest hosting Morgan’s program, noted Christie will likely run for president in 2016 and is polling as the strongest Republican potential candidate against Hillary Clinton.

“Don’t care. Don’t care. Don’t care. Don’t care,” Beck responded.

Cupp called Christie “the real world,” but Beck continued his attack, hitting Christie for his stance on gun control, global warming and unions — saying the New Jersey governor is a progressive, not a conservative.

“I’m done playing the game of, ‘Well, that means if we don’t vote for that guy, we‘re gonna get this guy.’ We played that with [Sen.] John McCain. We played that with Mitt Romney,” Beck said.

When asked who he’d like to see on the ticket in 2016, Beck said he “I don’t know because I don’t trust any of them.”

“I’m not going to sell my principles out anymore,” Beck said.

C’mon Glenn. You’re no picture perfect body oh health either.Christie I will agree is a Rino who should not even be given a chance for a Republican residential run.

That’s a little beyond the Pale. Glen would not be able to get a job as an underwear model for Calvin Klein’s men’s briefs.

If C-Cup is a Christie fan, that pretty well seals the issue for me.

No. No. No. NO.

Glenn Beck is criticizing someone else because of their weight? Really? Has he looked in the mirror? And does he want to compare what he has accomplished in his life compared to what Gov. Christie has accomplished?

Apparently Beck doesn't trust Cruz.

See Cupp is no conservative. If the GOPe nominates Christie, I will not vote. Christie embracing Obama looked like an unfunny Laurel and Hardy. The GOPe are a bunch of losers.

Beck spent much of the last primary labeling everyone a “Progressive”
Last time I heard him in the radio, he sounded like a giggling school girl.

Beck, pull the beam out of your own eye first...

CC has a multitude of flaws that make him an undesireable candidate for any public office. But I think it’s unfair and unprofessional to make reference to his weight.

Further, GB is not beyond reproach either.

Looks like the trolls from Dummie Underground are in full cry in this post. What’s with the focus on Glen’s comment about the obvious FACT that Christie is F.A.T??

How about we shift the focus to Christie’s miserable RECORD on the issues that SHOULD be important to all but the Dummie Underground trolls?

As of today, Glen doesn’t plan to run for president and is not a governor.

Gov. Christie has accomplished?

Other than conspicuously kissing 0bama's backside on more than one occasion, working against conservatives, supporting gun control and generally towing the progressive line, what has he accomplished? BTW what's your DU handle?

Thank you. Politico rolls Glenn and we help.

I am not even a Beckhead, and the “fat” remark is beneath the breadth of Beck’s brain, but the guy has provided a tutorial on systematic take over of a nation.

If any of us were as informed and actively mad about our crumbling nation as Glenn, things WOULD be different. He has used his hyperactive energy level and his intellectual curiosity in the manner of a modern day Paul Revere.

His appearance is not yet something that matters and that can’t probably be said of Christy at the moment. Glenn doesn’t yet look like a heart attack waiting to happen, although Type A’s are candidates, certainly.

Well, I will not criticize CC for his weight, nor for his accomplishments. Many who are willing to sell out what is decent and good have succeeded wildly in history and many still do today. Their success is no reason to make them the president.
I look at a candidate’s history and philosophy when choosing one. Having done that I find CC wanting. He is badly lacking in many aspects as a candidate. Based on that I would never vote for him.
I bit my tongue and held my nose for both McCain and Romney. I regret those votes for them and cannot get them back. I will not compromise again on a candidate.
If a candidate appears who is wholly in keeping with the Constitution as originally intended then he or she shall have my vote. No others.
If this means that the Progressive National Socialists control everything then so be it. They are playing a zero sum game and so am I. It’s a damned shame that folks like CC are not smart enough to understand that.

Accomplishments? CC?

How about weakening the R party presidential candidate’s position days before the 2012 election. If the R party leadership wants CC as the 2016 presidential nominee, they are either the greatest fools in political history or have the memories of that fish E DeGeneris voiced in “Finding Nemo”.

Yah, Glenn has his own personal set of trolls here on FR. They show up whenever anything is posted about him.

The only posts missing here so far:

Beck is crazy.

Beck is a a drunk/drinking again.

Beck is off his meds.

I would have answered the question differently than what Beck answered.

I would have said that I like what Cruz has done in 2013 and that if the election were held today, Cruz would be the type of person that I could support.

But Beck didn't answer it that way. Instead he lumped Cruz in with all the others.

Sorry, that doesn't cut it in my book.

And I'll take a "wait and see" approach to see if Beck, with his CNN paycheck, is a sell-out.

Glenn Beck may not be Freeper material but his comment about N.J. Governor Chris Christie's weight is not exactly the huge political faux pas some are making it out to be. Should - God forbid - Christie be the 2016 GOP presidential candidate his obesity will be spotlighted and mentioned many, many times by the left. Get used to that reality.

However, I agree with Beck (and every conservative I know) that nominating Christie would be a gigantic mistake and that he would lose more votes than he could possibly gain should he become the Republican presidential nominee in '16.

Of course, if the fix is in, we're already doomed. Christie will lose to Hillary or some other communist and America will never be the same. We'll be living under a socialist government that, as they always do, quickly becomes totalitarian and oppressive as it slowly fails.

He's fed up, as are most of us, and basically stating on a different network one of his core beliefs...he trusts no politician because even our guys stab us in the back constantly. I know he likes Cruz...I also know Beck is smart enough not to give the left another way to target Cruz for 3 years. He may also assume Cruz isn't running, so

I agree with much of what you said. I also voted for McCain. I could not bring myself to vote for Romney. Now, with what I know about Palin, I cringe thinking of my vote for McCain. Whether I could vote for Christie will depend on his platform and also...what other choices we have in the primary. I am not hopeful in the upcoming presidential election. None who are being suggested are people for whom I would vote...more troubling they are not candidates mainstream American will vote for either. Meaning we will lose another election. I hate to be so negative. It is just reality. Good luck to us all.

I do not agree with any of that and I am glad he has the lap band. It was very successful for a friend of ours. I hope it will be successful for him. I would not say he is a democrat. There is alot I like about him. Some things, not so much. But I have never had a candidate I like 100%. They were all human of course.

I think Christie’s weight is fair game. The man isn’t overweight; he’s morbidly obese. Putting aside the fact that he’s a Democrat, who wants a president who may keel over at anytime?

At least Beck has come around. He used to play Barry White songs while he gushed over Christie.

I'm fed up, as are most of us, with so-called conservative(and libertarian?) commentators not telling it like it is. Cruz over the past year has positively differentiated himself from the other potential candidates.

I would have said that while I don't trust any politician, Ted Cruz at least so far, has differentiated himself positively.

ABTW, I don't trust any CNN commentator either.

Yup. Take one remark out of context and run with it. Glenn gets fed up with progressives just like we do. And sometimes we ridicule the Sasquatch's fat ass. It happens.

Glenn can pick apart any RINO or Democrat. And he has, countless times. He's entitled to blow off a little steam, once in a while.
