The GEM Debate: Can An Overweight Man Lead Our Nation (VIDEO)

Chris Christie.  I actually really like the guy.  He’s well spoken, funny, and very personable.  Of course, in some parts of our culture, these things aren’t what really matter.  It’s the cover of the book we judge and not the contents, right?  Well, according to this article in Christie’s case it is becoming an issue.  I don’t think Christie is taking it too seriously.  He is confident in his abilities, but what I think we have here is more playground antics from people who just don’t want to see him at the Republican National Convention in 2016 accepting the nomination for his party.  Why?  I don’t know, but I can’t see any reason he can’t elevate in his career because he is overweight.

I actually feel for people in the spotlight having to answer questions about something so personal. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Christie said that if he could fix his weight he would.  And that’s true of probably all people who have a problem with their weight. In his case, his diet may be okay, but working the hours he does could possibly effect his metabolism. Babies need sleep to grow and we need sleep to stop growing. Yes, I’m defending the man because it is only right.  He’s so accomplished in other areas why would this allude him?  He has a staff and could probably work and jog (isn’t that what Clinton did?) so I’m assuming there’s a deeper reason he hasn’t lost the weight he wants to, but that wasn’t the question was it.

Yes, you can be overweight and lead this nation.  Absolutely!  But you guys know how we do it around here.  I want to know how you feel about Christie’s weight.  Should he learn how to control the inner workings of his body before he tries to control the inner workings of the country? Let’s hear you!
