Can Christie now be stopped for 2016?

After this, it doesn't seem like there will be any obstacles for Chris Christie....

Quote:
Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who has long struggled with obesity, underwent secret weight-loss surgery three months ago, according to a statement from his office.

The surgery, which took place on Feb. 16, involved the placement of a silicone band around his stomach to reduce its size, limiting the amount of food he can take in but not altering his digestive process.

Yes, the republican nomination can stop him. The biggest obstacle isn't CC's weight, but his own party.

It's easy to stop a candidate who is not running in the race.

Good for him. It should make a significant positive impact on his health.

Do you mean that it's too far out at the moment or that he won't run?

I cannot predict the future. However, he's made it clear in the recent past that he has no intention to run. I for one hope he changes his mind.

2012 he came out and said he wasn't ready. In reality it was knowing that a battle vs Obama wasn't a slam dunk. He refuses to answer when asked about 2016 often saying he is focused on the gubernatorial this year.

Heard some hilarious fake headlines on this, I think my favorite was the Late Fatsby or Move Over Bruce, Christie has a new favorite band.

The only people who think that are the same ones who think that there will be a need for an armed rebellion in the next few years.



Whether she runs or not, the 2016 election will start soon and it'll feel like a three year long episode of "The Apprentice".
