Skip to comments.Christie: Weight concerns “ridiculous”
Posted on 12/13/2012 3:10:58 AM PST by Olog-hai
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said concerns that his weight would prevent him from serving as president were ridiculous in an interview set to air Wednesday.
In an interview for Barbara Walterss 10 Most Fascinating People series, the broadcast veteran asked the New Jersey governor how he would respond to people who say that you couldnt be president because you're so heavy.
Thats ridiculous, I mean, thats ridiculous, Christie responded. I mean, I dont know what the basis for that is.

If a reporter asked an overweight woman [D] politician, they would have been called sexist ... and worse.
But he will never win.
No Cripsy but being fat, dumb and a RINO will.
But then, maybe the obese vote could bring him in, between the morbidly rotund, the fatcats, and America's well-fed poor...maybe he could get a coalition together.
Me, I just refuse to vote for liberals, no matter what brand they ride for.
No matter what he says the general public won’t elect a fat cat politician.
Just play the newscasts of him kissing Obama’s butt after Sandy, that should kill his chances.
His liberal RINOism prevents him.
There are many other reasons that Christie should never be made President!
The fact that he's morbidly obese at least offers us the hope that he'll never win the Republican nomination. (The Democrat nomination is another question -- since fat, stupid people are one of the 'rat core constituencies.)
Hey, I think his weight is a plus. In fact if he’d win with Palin as VP, I’d send him a dozen of his favorite donuts daily.
Two laps around Christi may become an olympic event in the next summer olympics.
President? This guy is going to have a hell of a time winning the governorship race later this year. My guess is Booker, the Newark Mayor, will be his opponent.
Interestingly, despite his photo op with the POS, the two NJ counties hit hardest by the storm- Monmouth and Ocean- went solid red. As did Staten Island.
There’s a reason they refer to his type of condition as morbidly obese.
Umm, I think Christie blew his chances with his slobbering suck-up performance with Obama. We Conservatives might have held our noses and pulled the lever for him before that totally embarrassing event. But, not now, never happen.
William Howard Taft served as President and also nine years as Chief Justice of The Supreme Court of The United States.
I actually saw his wife on TV yesterday, doing a PSA for their preferred charity for Sandy victims. She’s not too bad.
The weight of liberal Rino ideology will prove to be to much however.
Only skinny ones!!
Interesting. So it appears that Christie was not sucked into the vortex of the liberal black hole. He’s always been a RINO.
Why do they keep adding an “R” behind his name when everyone knows he’s a demodummie in hiding.
People that are considerably overweight have more health problems, it’s that simple. He is in denial about his obesity.
It’s not his turn anyway. Next up to lose is Jeb. The GOPe’s are already pushing his name out there.
It also seems that Hillary is declining (at present, but may change her mind later). If she does not run, that opens the way for another youthful Democrat to run against the Bush name, especially is Jeb is on the ticket. Win Win for the Dems.
The conservatives will chase after a half-dozen candidates who will hang on long enough to split the primary votes and give Jeb the nomination. Repeat of 2008 and 2012.
It’s the light-weightness of his conservatism that bothers me.
It doesn't matter anyway. The Democrats have it all locked up for the foreseeable future. The GOP is dead and we have no major party to represent us. C'est le vie.
Is gluttony one of the seven deadly sina? I see red flags when I see a fat man. Emotional eating in men is such a turn off....deeper issues.
I agree. Especially with such a nasty personality.
And he doesn’t know why he is or he’d do something about it?
[Why do they keep adding an R behind his name...]
“Theres a reason they refer to his type of condition as morbidly obese”
Exactly. He lives in a state of denial. Even if he wasn’t a total RINO I would never vote for the guy for President. His face is red half the time anyway from the over exertion of his heart. Add the stress of the presidency to that and I would make book that within 6 mos Christie would keel over from a massive heart attack. The guy appears to make no attempt to control his weight.
Ever seen video of Christie trying to walk fast? It’s a struggle for him. He just...rolls. I’m guessing that’s why he took that helicopter ride to his kid’s ball game instead of walking.
The guy has to weigh at least 350 lbs.
It also speaks to his personal gluttony and inability to control himself........i can can already see it playing out in the media this past week when Babs Walters asked him about his weight
The slob wouldnt last 6 weeks in office...not on that schedule
aside, Im down to 245 from 315
Cris Krispy Kreme don`t get it.
He`s burned his bridge with classical liberals / conservative and the neo-marxist left has decided he is NOT one of them, the beautiful progressives
This fat fool is d-o-n-e done
He could look like Jabba the Hut or Princess Leah for all I care, but his liberalism will result in him losing any attempt for the presidency as a republican.
He might get the nomination as a republican but as with McStain and Romney other “moderates” we just had to have as our nominee(thanks once again GOPE), he will get his ass kicked.
Which is why they are still a-hurtin' ... despite pant-load Christie's Lewinsky on the Mombasa MF. This ridiculous Governor Crispy-Creme made the Kenyan a hero in time for the election, and INMNSVHO, gave him the election. Out-weighing old President Taft is not a qualification for office. Get lost, ya fat Pant-Load!
The press will never allow Christie to get past a presidential primary.
Every story will begin with his appearance. No conservative issues will ever be discussed.
It'll be the same as Romney's bank account, a diversion from the issues.
