Lefty Bigots Attack Christie's Weight

Why does the left think all conservative are bigots? Because they think conservatives are like them. When Chris Christie was running for governor, opponent John Corzine mocked his weight. Now that the New Jersey governor is being hyped as a potential presidential candidate, the lefty hate machine is on the attack.

Whether or not he lets himself be persuaded to run for president, Chris Christie needs to find some way to lose weight. Like everyone else, elected officials perform best when they are in optimal health. Christie obviously is not.

You could argue that this is none of my business, but I disagree. Christie’s problem with weight ceased being a private matter when he stepped into the public arena — and it’s not something you can fail to notice.

That's from Washington Post love & compassion man Eugene Robinson. Here's Al Kamen, also in today's Post.

While New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is weighing his options regarding a presidential campaign, and the political pundits are taking his measure, it seems a fitting time to ponder the role of the large man in politics.

If Christie were to jump into the race for the GOP nomination, he would stand out — not just for his policy positions but also for his girth. He has never revealed his weight, though he has described himself as “fat.” If elected, he would certainly be the largest president since William Howard Taft, elected a century ago, who was said to have scaled in at upwards of 330 pounds.

They look at us and see themselves. You'll have to ask their shrinks why.
