Yes, Let’s Weigh In On Christie

Yes, Let’s Weigh In On Christie

Every week, it seems, New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s name inches higher on the list of potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates.

As a result, unlike any public figure in recent memory, he is increasingly compelled to assure reporters and the general public that his weight does not impair his ability to lead.

Christie, by any measure, is obese. This has provided endless fodder for late-night talk show hosts — David Letterman has ridiculed him for years — and politicos who hope to use his weight against him.

Stereotypes masquerade as facts: Fat is undisciplined. Fat is lazy. Fat is bound for an early grave.

Fat makes for great TV, too, the theory goes, from sitcoms to cable news shows. So after Christie jokingly pulled out a doughnut on Letterman’s show earlier this week, former White House physician Connie Mariano diagnosed the governor from afar on CNN:

“I worry that he may have a heart attack,” she said. “He may have a stroke. It’s almost like a time bomb waiting to happen unless he addresses those issues before he runs for office.”

Mariano worked for three presidents and wrote memoirs about her time at the White House. Visit her website, however, and you’ll find a photo of her only with former President Bill Clinton and a quote from him extolling her book. Combine her on-air interview with her website and she comes off as unprofessional and partisan.

Christie’s response to Mariano was typically brusque: Unless she does what a doctor is supposed to do — examine the patient and record his family history — “she should shut up.”

Agreed.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that more than one-third of Americans are obese. Still, fat jokes are a popular form of entertainment in this country. If you’re on Facebook, for example, you probably have seen the photos of morbidly obese customers at Walmart. The comment threads about the ample backsides of unsuspecting shoppers will make you lose faith in humanity, I swear.

Such cruelty can play out differently in politics, which brings us back to Christie. His approval ratings soared in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Even those who hated him had to concede that he was there for the people of his state — so much so that he hugged the president and then fired back at those who dared to criticize him for his gratitude.

The flood lines receded, and the fat jokes returned, but Christie’s political opponents — Republicans and Democrats alike — are ill-advised to make his size a campaign issue. When it comes to the governor’s struggles with weight, millions of Americans are on his side. Don’t think for a minute that Christie doesn’t know that, too.

“If you talked to anybody who has struggled with their weight, what they would tell you is, ‘Every week, every month, every year, there’s a plan,’” Christie said Tuesday at a news conference in New Jersey. “The idea that somehow I don’t care about this — of course I care about it, and I’m making the best effort I can.”

    Say what you will about Chris Christie, but he offers the best chance the Republicans have to
    retake the Presidency in 2016. As a Republican he is every bit as capable of being just as bad for the
    Country as any other. I know this, and still I find myself admiring his straight from the shoulder
    delivery of what he sees as the facts of the matter. Arrogant? Perhaps. But there is that confidence,
    actually fairly rare in politicians, that are, by the very nature of their business, loathe to give a
    definite yes, or no. And, although there must be a calculation before he speaks, he knows the
    game. But he doesn’t play it all the time. And that’s refreshing in a world inhabited by persons
    who in another time, would have been panhandlers, shake down artists, and snake oil salesmen.
    As Governor, he cut education, funds to colleges, and universities, and the salaries of every
    teacher in the State. While gifting hundreds of millions of dollars, to billion dollar corporations.
    But when he drew fire from his own Party, for including a Muslim to be in his administration
    He took on his fellow Republican’s bigotry, in much the same way as he took on the teachers union. Both take guts, politically speaking. But if Christie was aware of the possibly negative
    implications of his stand on either issue, he never showed it. How does a Republican in a Blue
    State receive a 70% approval rating? The answer is they don’t, unless they’re something very
    much out of the ordinary. And, sometimes we elect those with that kind of talent, to be President.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/7M2DKJ3IACEZW2TKS3DP7F2LHU Lorraine

      I am not from New Jersey, but what was his approval rating prior to Hurrican Sandy?

      • charleo1

        I don’t know, but I’ll bet it wasn’t 70%. When I heard Christie unload on Boehner,
        and the T-Party faction in the House, that were holding up funds, I thought, they
        are gonna love this guy in New Jersey.

        • neeceoooo

          And it was pretty sad that the group holding the funds were the states that have taken this type of help in the past.

          • charleo1

            It was sad. And disgusting! It was also an insight into the way these T-Party types,
            view the world. Words fail me to adequately describe their selfish narcissism.
            Ever watch Nat. Geo. Wild? A pack of wild dogs feeding on the carcass? Kinda like that!
            Every dog for himself.

      Sadly, he has committed the mortal sin of Speaking Not Denunciatorially Of A Democrat, and is therefore to be cast into the outer void.

      In Bagrospeech, he said nice things about Obama and is thus damned forever. Unless, of course, he proves to be a big enough asshole, which in the bagro eyes, forgives all sins.

        Didn’t he though? The first no no, was referring to President Obama as, “The President.”
        He then went on to commit the second, equally as unforgivable transgression, by, “Thanking, The President,” (Again with the President!,) for offering any assistance
        from, “The Federal Government.” By now the Bagro’s little heads are about to explode!
        The Federal Government??????

      Americans need to be very careful on going overboard with their admiration of ONE ASPECT of Christie’s benevolence. Sure, he was very straight forward on helping with what he saw as a spotlight disaster for the people of his state, but with issues that are not so much in the spotlight, he doesn’t have a record of helping the truely needy; he’s still the typical Republican who looks out primarily for the 2%.

  • rhallnj

    Christie does have an animal cunning, so I am surprised he doesn’t see that he is too moderate to be acceptable to Republicans. Republicans will not forget his “betrayal” of Romney and dissing of Boehner. He seems to be betting on an outbreak of sanity that is not likely to happen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dominick.vila.1 Dominick Vila

    Christie has a better chance running for President as a Democrat than as a Republican. The criticisms he directed at members of his own party after hurricane Sandy devastated parts of New Jersey and, especially, the gratitude he showed towards President Obama for his efforts to help those affected by that natural disaster, guarantee a rough road ahead if he decides to run as a Republican.
    As for his weight, that’s his business. If it doesn’t bother him it should not bother anyone else.

    • neeceoooo

      You’re right, the GOP did not care for him siding with the President and were very critical of him after that. But as far as his weight, that is his business.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/HGC4BGWVYXV76PHZBPSPOOU5GA Independent1

        I guess I would agree with you on the – his weight is his business – to a point. A lot of it would depend on who he ran with; remember, if he did die from a heart attack 18 months into a presidency, America would be stuck with whomever he chose as a running mate. If that was someone like lying Paul Ryan, there is NO WAY I would risk voting for him; Paul Ryan as president would be an absolute disaster for America.

  • Melda Page

    I am not a gambling person ever, but I would take a bet that he will have a stroke in the next four years–his weight coupled with his unrestrained temper.

    • nana4gj

      That temper, which allows him to vent his feelings, is what may save him from a stroke. At least we know he does not live with repression, don’t we?

      • RobertCHastings

        Absolutely right, he apparently doesn’t repress anything.

  • Kenneth Bailey

    Melda, I concur with your assessment. Christie is an eat on the run bureaucrat that usually has no discipline in their eating habits and a anger management problem. I would posit Christie has high Bp and cholesterol due to his weight and lack of exercise or not enough exercise. Combined together he is a time bomb ready to go off.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TT6POTCLZCE74T76WAJIIIUAHU frida

      Christie’s anger is because of his abnormal weight. Once he controls his weight and becomes normal, you are not going to see Christie becoming angry again.

      • nana4gj

        I do not think it is as simple as that. He is of Italian/Scottish-Irish descent and he is of New Jersey….and he is an attorney…..personalities are like bodies: all kinds, all shapes, all sizes, all different, all products of our genes and our environment and our life experiences, as well as our life styles.

    Chris Christie’s approval rating continues to soar so does his weight. This man doesn’t impress me at all in whatever he is doing for people. How can he remember other people and forget himself? When he is told to take action on his weight, he becomes sour like rotten milk. He always reminds me my alcoholic aunt who was very, very, very aggressive when she was told to stop drinking.

    • nana4gj

      How can he remember other people and forget himself???? Mothers do that all the time. Any of us with any kind of deficit, be it obesity, drinking, smoking, gambling, prejudice, hatred, become very, very aggressive when it is pointed out to us. I may sound as if I am defending Christie, but, I believe he is no different from anyone else with his “demon”. I also believe that a person’s “looks” is not a measure of their health or their fitness, necessarily. He may not be able to run a marathon but even if he were not overweight he may not want to run a marathon. Firstly, his genetic composition gave him his body structure, build, and he will never be thin, even when he loses some weight. His health status, only he and his physician know at this time.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TT6POTCLZCE74T76WAJIIIUAHU frida

        Mothers are not taking care of millions people per household. Person’s looks also matters a lot health-wise. If a person is overweight, he can not move easily. No movement and still you convince yourself that you are healthy? It doesn’t go that way Nana!

  • old_blu

    I don’t care how big he is, if he’s okay with it I’m okay with it.

    Although I don’t agree with a lot of his politics I do agree with the way he stands up for what he believes, and the way he puts his people first.

    • RobertCHastings

      I agree. He is an example all of the new and upcoming leaders of the Republican Party should emulate (except for the weight issue). He says what he means, even if it offends, even if it may be offensive. He might be well served to learn some self-control and diplomacy. But he has exhibited a willingness to praise his opponents for doing the right thing, and to criticize his allies for not.

    • http://www.facebook.com/fern.woodfork Fern Woodfork

      Always Never Forget Christie Is A Member Of The GOP/Tea Party American Taliban He’s For All The Things They Are For Union Busting And All The Low Down Hateful Things They Are For!! Christie Is A Bully Just Like Them Don’t Let This Thug Fool You!! He Also Voted Against The Raise On Wages!!!

      Unfortunately, he seems to be selective on what he’s willing to put his constituents first on – obviously he was very supportive with fixing the damage from Sandy that was very much in the spotlight, but I’m not so sure that holds true with about many other issues that are not so blatantly obvious – like virtually anything to do with helping people that just need help with living their lives; like him voting against raising the minimum wage that would help millions of truely needy folks.

  • ObozoMustGo

    Who cares about Christie? He’s a non-issue for at least 2 more years. Here’s some real news…

    NEWSFLASH!!!!! NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!! NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!!

    Yet another one of you leftist freaks going mad with a gun. I’ll bet that very few of you have heard of this rogue cop in hiding who is killing other cops. Well, he’s written a manifesto proclaiming his admiration and support of Obozo and a buch of you freaks in the media. Since you will not get the news anywhere else, and since The Memo is curiously quite on the gun issue during this madman’s killing spree, I’ll give you the real news here. Hat tip to The Blaze and Madeleine Morgenstern.

    Here is the link: theblaze(dot)com/stories/2013/02/07/fired-lapd-cop-praised-obama-piers-morgan-gun-control-ripped-the-nra-in-portions-of-supposed-manifesto-redacted-at-lapds-request/

    WHY DID SOME LOCAL MEDIA EDIT OUT ANTI-NRA, PRO-OBAMA PORTIONS OF ACCUSED COP-KILLER’S SUPPOSED MANIFSTO?
    Feb. 7, 2013 3:43pm Madeleine Morgenstern

    Former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Jordan is the target in a massive manhunt. (AP)
    The supposed manifesto of a fired Los Angeles police officer being sought in several slayings contained praise for President Barack Obama and gun control and disdain for the National Rifle Association in portions apparently redacted at the request of the LAPD.

    L.A. Fox affiliate KTTV-TV published a portion of Christopher Dorner’s writing that left out his political views. Other local news outlets including KTLA-TV and KFI AM 640 did the same.

    KTTV did originally publish a full version but removed it from their website after a request from police, a spokesman told BuzzFeed. Reached for comment, a KTTV assistant news director told TheBlaze only that, “The LAPD put out a request that a lot of the stuff be redacted.”

    An LAPD spokeswoman refused to comment to TheBlaze about the request, saying the department would have nothing to say on the matter until Dorner was captured.

    Below are portions of the redacted version of the manifesto. The entire thing is available at Gawker (content warning — strong language):

    On Obama:

    You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs. Obama.

    On Vice President Biden:

    Mr. Vice President, do your due diligence when formulating a concise and permanent national AWB plan. Future generations of Americans depend on your plan and advisement to the president. I’ve always been a fan of yours and consider you one of the few genuine and charismatic politicians. Damn, sounds like an oxymoron calling you an honest politician. It’s the truth.
    On former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

    Hillary Clinton. You’ll make one hell of a president in 2016. Much like your husband, Bill, you will be one of the greatest. Look at Castro in San Antonio as a running mate or possible secretary of state. He’s (good people) and I have faith and confidence in him. Look after Bill. He was always my favorite President. Chelsea grew up to be one hell of an attractive woman. No disrespect to her husband.
    On New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie:

    Gov. Chris Christie. What can I say? You’re the only person I would like to see in the White House in 2016 other than Hillary. You’re America’s no sh-t taking uncle. Do one thing for your wife, kids, and supporters. Start walking at night and eat a little less, not a lot less, just a little. We want to see you around for a long time. Your leadership is greatly needed.
    On LaPierre:

    Wayne LaPierre, President of the NRA, you’re a vile and inhumane piece of sh-t. You never even showed 30 seconds of empathy for the children, teachers, and families of Sandy Hook. You deflected any type of blame/responsibility and directed it toward the influence of movies and the media. You are a failure of a human being. May all of your immediate and distant family die horrific deaths in front of you.
    On various MSNBC and CNN broadcasters:

    Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera, Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings. Cooper, stop nagging and berating your guest, they’re your (guest). Mr. Scarborough, we met at McGuire’s pub in P-cola in 2002 when I was stationed there. It was an honor conversing with you about politics, family, and life.
    On CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and Piers Morgan:

    Revoke the citizenship of Fareed Zakaria and deport him. I’ve never heard a positive word about America or its interest from his mouth, ever. On the same day, give Piers Morgan an indefinite resident alien and Visa card. Mr. Morgan, the problem that many American gun owners have with you and your continuous discussion of gun control is that you are not an American citizen and have an accent that is distinct and clarifies that you are a foreigner. I want you to know that I agree with you 100% on enacting stricter firearm laws but you must understand that your critics will always have in the back of their mind that you are native to a country that we won our sovereignty from while using firearms as a last resort in defense and you come from a country that has no legal private ownership of firearms. That is disheartening to American gun owners and rightfully so.
    On former President George H.W. Bush:

    The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country.
    On ex-CIA Director David Petraeus:

    General Petraeus, you made a mistake that the majority of men make once, twice, or unfortunately many times in a lifetime. You are human. You thought with your penis. It’s okay.I personally believe you should have never resigned and told your critics to shove it. You only answer to two people regarding the affair, your wife and children, period. I hope you return to government service to your country as it is visibly in your DNA.
    On former Secretary of State Colin Powell:

    General Colin Powell, your book “My American Journey” solidified my decision to join the military after college. I had always intended to serve, but your book and journey motivated me. You are an inspiration to all Americans and influenced me greatly.
    –——————————————————-

    It’s clear now, with EVERY ONE of the whackos that have been perpetrating these killings are progressive DemonRATS, that the solution to the problem is to disarm every moron that voted for Obozo. The rest of us sane Americans will cover your backs for you, but Obozo voters should have their 2nd Amendment rights revoked IMMEDIATELY!!!!!

    Have a nice day!

    I know very little about Governor Christie’s health and neither does Dr. Mariano. Her comments were both unprofessional and insulting. One thing I have noticed about Governor Christie is his excellent, unimpaired mobility. There is more to health than body mass index.

    Every person is a unique individual and Dr. Mariano would do well to remember that.

    • nana4gj

      Exactly. We are each unique. “Health” is not defined how we “look”. A person obsessed with thinness, or weight, or physical appearance, willing to do unhealthy things to get and stay that way is just as unhealthy as a person who is alleged to eat too much and is fat because of it. The problem with society in America is that we tend to be obsessed with image and physical appearance and demand stereotypical perceptions of perfection. We sound ignorant when we cannot seem to accept the fact that we are unique because of our genetic and ethnic contributions to our physical bodies. The young mother who lives next door to me is of Italian ancestry, too. I knew her great grandmother. That woman, and this young mother, is built exactly like Christie, as was the father of this young woman. This young woman cooks fresh foods, lots of vegetables, fruits, salmon, legumes, and lean meats for her family. Her great grandparents did, too; they grew those vegetables in a beautiful garden in their pretty back yard in the middle of a big city, and were our neighbors. This mother goes to the gymn regularly and does not eat lots of sweets. She is busy, is a college professor, has raised two young men and is raising a little girl, married to a professor from India, and they eat “clean food” and meals in that home. She is healthy, but, she she still has the body of her ancestors, much like Christie. She is smart, nice, thoughtful of me, a published author in her specialty, accomplished, and an invited speaker all over the world at forums on her specialty, which is about Women’s health issues in various societies and socio-economic impact on their health. She will never look like Cheryl Tiegs, nor does she aspire to.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bob.brindell.7 Bob Brindell

      I agree! Several years ago a skinny MD told me I was overweight at 220. He said at my height I should weigh 175. Upon further discussion the Doc said my optium weight was my weight when I finished basic training. I told him my weight at that time, 199. He called me a liar. Some doctors have their head were the son don’t shine. Dr. Mariano could be one.

            And you are an immature vulgarian, incapable of civil discourse or rational thought. An angry, ill mannered, crude, coarse, boorish adolescent lacking in social or communication skills, rather obviously suffering from anger management and impulse control issues. Your posts are devoid of intelligence or insight, and would be more appropriate to sites like WND, DeadBart, or TownHall. Where, BTW, you could do battle with those on your intellectual and emotional level. Believe me, you would fit in there perfectly.
            One of the nice things about progressive sites and commentors is, for the most part, their civility and intelligence. You are neither. You have the right, of course, to be as rude and obnoxious as you like, to display your childishness with tantrums and insults. I have the right to call you out on it, to point out the inappropriateness of your tirades, and to advise you to grow up and learn how to carry on a civil discussion like an adult.
            However, based on what I have seen of your comments, growth and maturity is simply beyond you. So I suppose you can perform the valuable function of holding down the bottom anchor point on the bell curve. After all, every class has to have someone graduate last in their class, but most people who come in last tend to be rather ashamed of this. You, though seem to take pride in your immaturity and crassness. I can only assume you know no better, and are unconcerned by this.
            You are what you are, which is a shame. And you appear to be incapable of improvement, which is an even greater shame.

    • Erik Nash

      But the sad thing about her statement, is that there are hundreds, if not thousands that think and act just like Dr. Mariano

  • nana4gj

    Mariano may have been correct in her assessment of Christie’s weight problem as an issue of health, but she was not correct, as a physician, to express what is obvious to everyone, to the extent that she did, in a public forum, and with such personal, unprofessional, non-constructive choice of words. As a physician, she should know that what she did and how she did it is not therapeutic or conducive to influencing any patient with a serious health issue that involves changing a life style. The response from Christie about her remark is exactly what one would expect and she deserved it.

    Christie may be a public figure, but he is a human being with a potential health issue that cannot be hidden. Others may joke about it and express concern about the effect of his obesity on his job performance; he may joke about it; but it does not give a physician the license to cross boundaries of personal privacy and professionalism. He did not seek this physician out for care and advise; and, it’s true, she knows nothing about his physical health as measured in medical diagnostic tests, family history, and genetic factors, which brings me to this next point.

    Christie is of Italian and Scottish/Irish ancestry. He will never be “thin”, or “tall”. In my Italian family and in the Italian colony, I have known many men, and women, who are built just like Christie who live very productive, hard working lives, into their 8th decade, without heart attacks and some without even diabetes and hypertension. When they died, they died of old age with the same infirmaties at that time as anyone else who is fortunate to die of old age. It isn’t always what we eat and how much we eat.

    Our bodies, be they short, round, and “fat”, or with “big bottoms”, are genetically engineered. They may not all be physically attractive to some, but it’s possible that a better indicator of health may be that we can accept who we are, the genes we were given, and not allow our looks to define us, limit us, or drive us to obsession to become the impossible and to strive for the stereotypical image of someone else or what others believe we should be.

    There is always room for improvement in all of us. There is room for Christie to attempt to lose some of the extra weight. But like anyone else, it won’t happen because of an entire nation nagging him and criticizing him. If he decides to run for a higher office, his medical health and history will be of the same import as it is for anyone else who seeks the office of President and the determinant factor will not be how he looks, it will be based on scientific, medical measurements of diagnostic and screening tests, not awkwardness of moving about because of excess weight, but on stress tests, EKGs, blood pressure measurement, diabetes screenings, etc., all and more of which I am sure he has done on a regular basis that he is under no obligation to disclose at this time.

    Even if Christie loses some weight, he will retain the same body structure and the result will be a smaller version of the same body. If he does decide to lose weight, it will be between himself and his personal physician, the only two people who can distinguish between “looks” and health.

    There are many thin, lean men in my state government and in the US Congress and I would not place my future or my vote in their hands, ever. While I do not agree with all of Christie’s policies and ideology, and sometimes his candor…sometimes….I would rather trust him than any of these others who “look” so healthy but who have some pretty unhealthy logic, ideas, social norms, and behaviors, and whose verbal pronouncements are more offensive and insulting than anything that has exited from Christie’s mouth, so far.

    • latebloomingrandma

      Very good post. My father-in-law was the size of Christie, and lived to be 86. Secondly, this constant pointing out and taunting him for his weight is discriminitory and cruel. You NEVER have to tell a fat person they are fat. They are only too well aware of it. I’m sure the governor is working on it, but has decided to take matters in his own hands and respond with humor. I can admire him for that.

  • RobertCHastings

    Chris Christie has shown in recent months that he is willing to 1) chastize his own party for their failures, and 2) work cooperatively with the opposition when it is necessary. Yes, that makes him a very likeable candidate. Grover Cleveland, a 19th Century president, weighed over 300 pounds,probably in the neighborhood of what Gov. Christie weighs. Cleveland was the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms, and the only president to follow his presidency with a stint on the Supreme Court, quite astounding for someone who was morbidly obese.. However, when Grover Cleveland was president the office was not nearly as demanding as it is now, from the standpoint of continuously campaigning and fund raising and from the standpoint of the job itself. As governor of New Jersey, Christie has shown great energy, and a great inability to control himself. Facing criticism, his first (and only ) response is to lash out. Facing the legitimate expressed concern of a certified doctor who opined regarding his likely difficulties in surviving the presidency, his response was angry and defiant. Regardless of his skills and arts as a politician, he still has to answer the issue of his morbid obesity. The term is “morbid obesity” for a reason, and that is that people who have the condition are much more likely to die prematurely from any one of a number of health issues associated with their obesity, such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, etc. I would personally be amazed if he is not already suffering from some of the maladies associated with obesity.

    • nana4gj

      Well written. But I believe Christie is under no obligation to disclose his medical status at this time unless his constituents in New Jersey ask him to. Should he decide to run for the office of President, there will be disclosure from his personal physician, with his consent, as to his health status and how it and the prospective job requirements, will impact each other, ie, whether or not he is physically able to do the job, but, I doubt we will get the detailed specifics. We may get information on some of those associated “maladies”, if he has them, because, in this case, there will be obvious “need to know”.

    My problem about his reaction to what the Former White House Doctor said is because of what he said 2 days earlier: At a press conference on Monday Christie said that he and his doctors did have a plan for his health, and “whether it’ll be successful or not, you’ll all be able to notice.”
    “My doctor continues to warn me that my luck is going to run out relatively soon, so believe me it’s something I’m very conscious of,” he said.

  • nana4gj

    We are each unique. “Health” is not defined how we “look”.

    A person obsessed with thinness, or weight, or physical appearance, willing to do unhealthy things to get and stay that way, even attempting to go against nature, is just as “unhealthy” as a person who is alleged to eat too much and is fat because of it.

    The problem with society in America is that we tend to be obsessed with image and physical appearance based on stereotypical perceptions of perfection. We sound ignorant when we cannot seem to accept the fact that we are unique because of our genetic and ethnic contributions to our physical bodies. If not ignorant, we seem shallow, and in need of total conformity to some “ideal”, and we become, too often, prejudicial based on these false standards.

    The young mother who lives next door to me is of Italian ancestry, too. Italians come in all shapes and sizes, as do other ethnic groups; we have our “tribal”, or “clan” characteristics, too. But I knew her great grandmother, and her father. That woman and that man, and this young mother, is built exactly like Christie; her sister, not at all, the opposite, and not because of anything she eats or does, but because she has more of “the other side of the family”. My “clan” has a different kind of body, a different kind of “fat”, more a Sophia Loren gone wild….in old age…. but it was grand in youth.

    This young woman, my neighbor, cooks fresh foods, lots of vegetables, fruits, salmon, legumes, and lean meats for her family. I love to go grocery shopping with her because I am inspired to eat healthier. They do not even eat much pasta, because genuine Italian cooking is lots of green veggies, simply prepared with garlic and olive oil. Little to no sweet things.

    Her great grandparents did, too, and that’s how her father ate. They grew those vegetables in a beautiful garden in their pretty back yard in the middle of a big city, and were our neighbors, and shared their harvest with us. They came from “the old country” and ate that way. They still looked like Christie.

    This mother goes to the gym regularly. She is busy, a college professor, raised two young men, twins, as a single mother working and going to school, and is now raising a little girl, married to a professor from India, and they eat “clean food” and meals in that home. She is healthy, but, she she still has the body of her ancestors, much like Christie.

    She is smart, nice, thoughtful of me, a published author in her specialty, accomplished, and an invited speaker all over the world at forums on her specialty, which is about Women’s health issues in various societies and socio-economic impact on their health.

    She will never look like Cheryl Tiegs or Cindy Crawford, nor does she aspire to. And it has not impeded her in achieving her goals in life.

    • nana4gj

      PS: Her great grandfather was thin, lean, and died early in his late 60′s. Her great grandmother, whom I already described as having the body build of Christie, died in her early 90′s, and her father died in his late 70′s. None of them languished with chronic illnesses due to their “obesity” and they did not have cancer. They just died, two of them suddenly of heart attacks at age 60 ( the lean one); at 70 the father who was built like Christie; and one, of old age, at 90, also built like Christie.

    If he was not a Republican I would consider voting for Chris Christie because he is fat! I am so sick of these emaciated nutritionists, reality shows that treat fat people like they are criminals in boot camp, models with stick arms and plastic breasts, and school lunches that don’t consider that what children eat at school is often all they get until they come back to school, that I could scream. It is even getting to where men look like an olive on a toothpick, only with no chest hair and ripples. The word “obese” and “obesity epidemic” need to be removed from the dictionary! The birth rate in America will go way down because skinny women stop producing estrogen and don’t reproduce. Osteoporosis is going to start setting in at 35 and that is just as bad a disease as diabetes. In fact, one of the skinny nutritionists about three years ago had a bone density test done and her bones were like a 70 year old’s. But they never seem to want to talk about the consequences of a “healthy” weight, meaning nearly skeletal. Get out of our lives and find a cure for the dieseases that are supposedly related to obesity and fix the disease without causing a worse one, ok.

    It’s the same reason Newt Gingrich still gets picked on for adultery but Bill Clinton doesn’t. Hypocrisy lends mileage to any issue, no matter how trivial or juvenile it would be otherwise.

            Child, you really need to work on your vocabulary. Repetition like yours simply points out how sadly uneducated and unimaginative you are. You’re a child in an adult room. You really need to grow up . . .

            And you are a sorry excuse of a garbage mouthed adolescent. This is where adults try to have discussions on serious issues. You are neither an adult or serious. Grow up, and learn to express yourself without having to resort to obscenities and insults.

    here is what a edjucated black man named Bill Cosby thinks of YOUR type………

    BILL HAS DONE IT AGAIN.
    They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English.
    I can’t even talk the way these people talk:
    Why you ain’t,
    Where you is,
    What he drive,
    Where he stay,
    Where he work,
    Who you be…
    And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
    And then I heard the father talk.
    Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
    In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
    People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around.
    The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
    These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
    $500 sneakers for what?
    And they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
    I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
    Where were you when he was 2?
    Where were you when he was 12?
    Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn’t know that he had a pistol?
    And where is the father? Or who is his father?
    People putting their clothes on backward:
    Isn’t that a sign of something gone wrong?
    People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn’t that a sign of something?
    Isn’t it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
    What part of Africa did this come from??
    We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a thing about Africa …..
    I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
    I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don’t have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! !
    With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ……… And all of them are in jail.
    Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
    We have got to take the neighborhood back.
    People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different ‘husbands’ — or men or whatever you call them now.
    We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
    We have million-dollar basketball players who can’t write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
    Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
    We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
    We cannot blame the white people any longer.’
    Dr.. William Henry ‘Bill’ Cosby, Jr., Ed..D.

    Leopard never change his spots, he changes his tactics to confuse his prey. Chris Christie tactics works.. He praised Obama but voted for Robmeof Money, therefore he is not for the Middle class (but he needs their votes) cut every educational programs to give more tax breaks/money to his buddies, cut every safety net for the less fortunate and is #1 state that people are moving out because of taxes and no jobs. Sure he is outspoken but diplomacy is not his virtue, never was and never will. He is still a bully. If he is picked for Gov. again, I guess NJ people have same mentality as he does. I can’t imagine him as a President and talking like that to other Presidents.
    Weight, who cares, if he is happy , his wife is happy who am I to say otherwise. It’s none of my business and I care less, but I do care who Represents me as a Country and have respect for every citizen no matter what the status. I am sure if McCain will same same thing as the AZ doctor did. He would not say shut up to McCain. Who knows maybew McCain will wanted to stay relevant and will go on a talk show and oppose CC because of his weight. LOL

    Yes there are millions of obese Americans, however if those obese Americans are going to the doctor they too have been warned. How much does it cost to care for an obese American with hypertention, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis (because of weakened joints and bones carrying the extra weight)? The GOP talks about social security being an entitlement that needs to be cut…get the people off of the program that wont used self control by watching what they eat, how they eat it and when they eat it, and refuse to get up and MOVE (not just normal getting around and doing everyday things) but EXERCISE regularly, we won’t have to cut social security. OBESITY is a disability and some people get SSI for it. I like Christie, but NO WAY would I vote for him. Because of his obesity I have great concern for his health and it’s just not worth the risk. Presidency is a WHOLE LOT more stressful than governorship.

  • ralphkr

    What is the big deal about Christie’s weight? When I was a kid most politicians, judges, doctors, and wealthy people looked like him. Shucks, you could tell at a glance a person’s financial status: Fat = rich; Skinny = poor. Today, it seems that the reverse is true but I would still like to see Christie wearing a monocle and top hat ala Monopoly.

      yeah she was getting owned like a slave by me yesterday and couldnt take it.all she could do was say i was a troll.

      • http://www.facebook.com/BaronSieggy Siegfried Heydrich

        What’s funny is how she flags anything she doesn’t like . . . one of the things about people like her is that they are incapable of actually discussing an issue without resorting to name calling and obscenities. The odd thing is that as regards actual positions, we’re not that far apart. However, she lacks the verbal skills needed to present rational arguments and covers this inadequacy by screaming at the top of her lungs. But what else would one expect from a child?

          • http://www.facebook.com/BaronSieggy Siegfried Heydrich

            Ah, thanks, but listening to the shrieks of the demented is generally enough for me. She really is delusional . . . I love the part where she says she has the money to rip you (and I assume me a as well) a new one. That’s generally the kind of behavior you get from some who has nothing, is nothing, but still enjoys a rich and fulfilling fantasy life on-line.

            The really, truly amusing part of this is that I told her right up front that I thought she was going to be fun, and that I was going to derive considerable enjoyment punching her buttons. I do this mostly on the right wing blogs, where one little poke can set off a cacophony of outraged bleating. It’s just rather uncommon to find someone as base and ill-mannered as her on a site as serious as this. But what can I say . . . someone has to be the worst on on a site, and I guess she’s carved out the bottom of the barrel and made it her home . . .
