Gov. Christie has repeatedly stated he will run for the 2012 Presidency. According to the two recently published articles linked below, he hasn't changed his mind.
Christie hasn’t changed his mind about running, the person said.
The first-term Republican has said repeatedly that he would “have to commit suicide” to convince people he won’t seek higher office in 2012. Michael Drewniak, a Christie spokesman, said in an e-mail that “nothing at all has changed.”
New Jersey governor Chris Christie is not running for president in 2012. He has said so himself many, many times. And yet this week, once again, rumors have surfaced that the freshman governor is “in talks” with Republican bigwigs to hop in...
The chatter commenced anew thanks to NewsMax‘s recent article claiming Gov. Christie would decide “in days” whether he was running for President after a “hush-hush powwow” between top Republican donors and the New Jersey governor. The context of the piece is even more bizarre than the rumors that the governor is thinking about it. It is apparently Indiana governor Mitch Daniels– the great Republican hope that never was– who is pushing for Christie to jump in. Christie has both publicly noted he finds the current GOP field unsatisfactory and that he really, really has no interest in running for president, can everyone just leave him alone now?
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
thread (Some of Sarah Palin's Ideas Cross the Political Divide). If she does decide to get in at this point I'd be alittle surprised. Conservatives would go ballistic! but I seriously doubt she'd have the desired crossover appeal the GOP are hoping for from her to win.
He feels the weight isn't just an appearance issue but a health one which he views a disqualifying at this point. His est? 'near 300 lbs'.
I believe he was in the hospital at one point for an issue that could be due to his weight; exhaustion/dizziness/weakness etc.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
Me personally, I wouldn't want somebody to run the country that keep saying that they are not ready. Regardless of what party, you want someone in there that wants the job badly. And to my republican friends, you guys are doing a lot of damage to Romney and Perry brand by this pursuit of Christie. You guys are making them look like sloppy seconds and you better believe the Obama campaign will use that to their advantage.
I can see it now. "Why should america vote for you when your own party don't want you"
