    Should this even be allowed considering the health message it sends to US children that the leader of the free world can be medically fat?
    While I can certainly see the impact that it might have, I think the responsibility of physical health lies mostly with parents. People are overweight for a variety of reasons, and I should hope that good parenting that attempts to keep a child at as healthy a weight as possible, coupled with looking past the weight issues of a political leader would dilute any influence it may have. I also think we need to understand that there is thin line between attempting to get kids healthy and fight obesity and fat shaming.

    And I quit smoking as well (and crack and gambling and drinking and overeating).
    Smoking is both an emotional and physical addiction...overeating is tough but only emotional. Quitting smoking is harder, imo (and I am not going to debate people about it - it is).

    And it all depends how much you smoke as well.

    Fat is fat.


    2) I don't care if POTUS's have vices...but not ones that seriously jeopardize their health...as being a fat pig does (especially if you are middle aged like Christie). You don't believe me - ask a doctor.

    Smoking a couple cigs or getting bj's from interns is not going to give you a stroke probably...but being really fat and middle aged just might.

    I don't want a repeat of what happened to Wilson

    Woodrow Wilson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    I am not going to debate this.

    Being in decent shape (i.e. not a fat pig) is the VERY LEAST you can do if you are going to be the most powerful person in the world with the ability to start WW3 on a virtual whim.

    And the fact that this ding dong cannot even manage that without surgery proves that he is a VERY weak man.

    Lots of people are very weak - I can be (as shown from above). But they are not running for President.

    Hey, I am a nobody. And if I can quit over eating/crack/smoking/gambling/drinking...then this slob can at least quit pigging out for the good of the nation. If he can't even do that on his own, then he has no business being POTUS, imo.

    You don't agree...fine.


    We are done on this.


    Good day.
    You can quit cigarettes in one day, and crack, and gambling, and even over eating.

    You can't instantly drop all the pounds one needs in a say.

    The dude had lost, at last I can dig up back in May, over 85 pounds.... so probably more by now.

    Cut the fat mother ****er a break, he is working on it.

    How so?

    Is it your claim that no person of heft has ever been an effective world leader?

    What's that say about that society to a kid who is too young to process any other info save for imagery? We shouldn't have a human piglet for leader of the free world. It sends a message of irresponsibility.
    You know what else sends a message of irresponsibility.

    And for the record, for the ridiculously politically correct here, I called Christie a 'fat pig'.

    The 'fat' is because he is fat.

    The 'pig' is because I despise him as a politician.

    I do NOT call any fat people 'pigs' (except myself when I was fat)...unless I don't like them, but then I would call them a pig no matter what.


    Oh...and btw...once again, Christie is a...

    ...FAT PIG!

    And I don't want fat people as POTUS's.

    The POTUS should be fit (or reasonably so). Not for image, for national security. I don't want a fat President having a stroke in the middle of a war.




    Good day all.

    If Hillary wants to be president, she's going to have to slim down. There's just no other way to look at it after this thread. I'm convinced.

    The voters in Ohio's 8th congressional district pretty much control that one. Most people don't know or care if the Speaker of the House smokes and drinks...or is crazy, as was the case with Pelosi.
