For one of the people who constantly drone on about personal responsibility and take care of one self (although you probably refer to financial wellbeing, not physical) I can't believe you'd endorse someone that isn't in control of "himself".

This.

This.
Personal responsibility is paramount, but his weight is of no importance to me. First, it would be morally wrong for me to prejudge him. Maybe he has a condition. I don't know why he is large. Second, his rotundness has no effect on me. Bloomberg is a skinny rat, and bans sodas. Christie didn't ban tofu. I am also pretty certain that Christie has private insurance, hence, my taxpayer dollars don't go towards his healthcare (although Obama changed that) while a skinny crack addict with 8 kids does. There are FAR more important aspects and criteria that I look for in a politician, and weight isn't even on the top 763.

Pretty sure that Christie is covered by his job. You know, the governorship...
