Governor Chris Christie Can't Handle Difficult Tasks


In an interview with ABC News, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) discussed the issue of his weight, saying, "It's a really difficult thing to deal with."

The Republican governor said, "I've been living with it for a long time, and I'm going to try to get better." He added, "And if I can get better, that'll be great for me and for my family and for the public who likes me ... it's something that's not easy. If it were easy, I'd already have it fixed.”

Christie signaled that he's never considered gastric bypass surgery as a viable solution to address his weight, calling the procedure "too risky."
So very touching.  It is nice that he wants to work on his weight problem.   There was however no mention on if he has plans on trying to control his massive spending of taxpayer dollars on personal luxury items,

Right before the lineup cards were being exchanged on the field, a noise from above distracted the spectators as the 55-foot long helicopter buzzed over trees in left field, circled the outfield and landed in an adjacent football field. Christie disembarked from the helicopter and got into a black car with tinted windows that drove him about a 100 yards to the baseball field

The governor had no public events on his schedule, offering no insight to where he might have been traveling from. He had a private meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Drumthwacket, the governor’s mansion, in Princeton. He is meeting with a group of Iowa donors who have publically expressed a desire to persuade him to run for president in 2012

Or if there is a surgery or treatment to stop him from being an ass:

Or if he can somehow work on telling the truth for a change!    

“Clearly there has been a pattern of the governor playing fast and loose with the details,” said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University. “But so far, he’s been adept at getting the public to believe what he says.”

Mr. Christie, a Republican who took office in January 2010, would hardly be the first politician to indulge in hyperbole or gloss over facts. But his misstatements, exaggerations and carefully constructed claims belie the national image he has built as a blunt talker who gives straight answers to hard questions, especially about budgets and labor relations. Candor is central to Mr. Christie’s appeal, and a review of his public statements over the past year shows some of them do not hold up to scrutiny.

What would you expect I guess with someone who is so tight with Scott Walker?

  1. It would be the first time anyone has campaigned for Vice President from a forklift.

    Unlike Mitt Romney, Christie would be able to order a donut by it's name, as opposed to calling it "one of those chocolate things".

    Every time I see that dude on TV I feel skinnier.
