Too Fat For Public Office
1 year ago
Politicians are elected to do the work of the people and their waistlines shouldn’t get in the way
Last week, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was rushed to a hospital after experiencing an asthma attack. An favorable candidate for the GOP presidential ticket, Christie’s weight and subsequent health has always been an issue and one he hasn’t been afraid to discuss with the media.
"I think the weight exacerbates everything, and I’ve been pretty candid about that right from the start of my public career," he said. [SOURCE]
Admitting that weight is an issue is one thing but it’s another to actually do something about it especially when your career depends on it. As the race for the White House ramps up, Christie works with a personal trainer three times a week in his mission to loose weight. Is it possible that Christie is too obese for office?
