    Christ released from hospital, and blames his weight

    HACKENSACK, N.J. – A chatty but visibly tired New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie walked out of a hospital Thursday night and promised to return to work Saturday after a morning asthma attack raised questions about his health - and his weight.

    "The lighter I am, the healthier I’ll be," Christie said, facing a barrage of media questions about his excess weight after he spent eight hours in the emergency room. "I weigh too much because I eat too much. And I eat some bad things."


    Standing outside the hospital in front of two SUVs, engines running, waiting to take him home, Christie frankly addressed his weight as a serious health issue. It plagued him on the campaign trail in 2009, and some question whether it will affect his future on the national political stage.

    Christie described his weight as "one of the major struggles of my life," and said Thursday’s incident was not the first time he was reminded to change his lifestyle.

    "This doesn’t give me a sense of urgency," Christie said of the breathing problems that forced him to cancel a public event and have his state police drivers take him to the Somerset Medical Center in Somerville. Controlling his weight and his health were already urgent in his mind, Christie said.

    "I think the weight exacerbates everything, and I’ve been pretty candid about that right from the start of my public career," he said.

    I am glad he is out and ok, but it's also great news that he admits his weight is probably a factor. That means he knows he needs to live healthier, and is willing to take the steps to improve his health. I never thought it was cruel to bring up his weight in the other thread, and I am glad he is being honest about it himself. Hopefully he will be healthier and feel better, because I think his asthma has to be worse than mine and it can be emotionally draining and frightening to deal with.

    I don't like Christie's politics, but I'm glad to see that my governor is ok.

    As much as the right wing loves Jabba the Guv, it is not CHRIST we are talking about here.

    Now we know the truth. It wasn't the Romans who crucified Christ, it was the Big Macs.

    It's not exactly a right winger who started this thread.

    I edited the title, and I was wondering why there was an "i" floating around in the middle of the edit bar.

    No worries, it's funnier this way and I find great humor in the fact that Haymarket took your innocuous mistake as indicator of what the right thinks.
