    Re: Chris Christie Reconsidering 2012 Run, Will Decide in Days

    Christie's weight won't hurt him in an election. We have far more important things to worry about.

    What will hurt him is his inexperience. Romney, Perry, and the others will be quick to compare him to Obama in that respect, and will use Christie's own statements that he doesn't feel ready and is not familiar enough with national issues.

    His pragmatism will also hurt him. The best he could hope for is coming out of the primaries with independents questioning his readiness to lead and conservatives feeling angry that the establishment managed to retake control of the Republican party.

    Once the country rejects Tea Party extremism in 2012 or, perhaps more likely, 2014, Christie will be in the perfect position to run. He knows it, and will not declare.

    I think your wrong and Im going to catch hell for this statement...but its a fact that women as a whole not as individuals have more of a tendency to vote for the handsome males and women outvote men....aside from that..


    Putting my feelings about Christie aside...The man has absolutely no self control what he puts in his mouth, he has to realize that his weight can impact the publics view of him and he is a public figure..hes gained weight since hes become Governor hes gotten bigger. If you want to consider obesity a disease fine...do you want an alchoholic or a drug addict or any other individual with a manic compulsive disorder as president.
    He needs to get himself under control before he can control my life...theres a myriad of ways to lose and control your weight and get help for it, he hasnt even attempted to do any of them or he hasnt been the least successful if he has.....christie is not my hero

    I would rather be overweight than a smoker.

    It was an absolutely direct and concrete comparison. It seems anyone could understand that.

    Agree with most, but even as a Christie fan, disagree about the weight thing. Especially since recently it became a 'health' one too.

    People do form opinions with and vote on Looks. Romney Looks Presidential, but if he looked like some other Financial heavies (ie, Ben Bernanke, his predecessor, GS's Lloyd Blankfein) he couldn't even consider the Presidency.

    But everyone knows he's the 'sexiest' potential candidate. Hopefully we will wait for 2016.
    My guess is the RNC is already making some sort of overture/deal for ie, him to be Keynote speaker at the Convention in exchange for letting the current lackeys alone.
    He's got some chips.

    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    This alone kind of makes me want to vote for the guy....

    Breaking: Christie Jeopardizes Reelection by Alienating Crucial Guido Vote - By Daniel Foster - The Corner - National Review Online

    Trenton, NJ – Governor Chris Christie today vetoed the Economic Development Authority’s (EDA) award of $420,000 in film tax credits to the Jersey Shore television program, citing New Jersey’s difficult fiscal climate and the need to direct limited state resources to programs and projects that actually benefit the state.
    That's right - he cut funding to Jersey Shore. I think this is an issue which both sides of the spectrum can get behind.
