Now, come on. The New Jersey governor can laugh it off with David Letterman, but not with this Republican physician?
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is lashing out at a former White House doctor who said she worries about the governor dying in office because he is so heavy.
Former White House physician Connie Mariano made the comment in an interview with CNN. The Scottsdale, Ariz., doctor says she’d like to see Christie run for president in 2016 but that he needs to lose weight. She worries he could have a heart attack or stroke.
The 50-year-old Republican governor said Wednesday that unless Mariano gives him a physical exam and takes his family history, “she should shut up.”
Christie joked about his weight this week with David Letterman.
Governor Christie should worry less about what others are saying and take a walk to the gym.

Comments Off on Video: Arnold on Chris Christie and his Water Retention Problem
In the above video, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie goes after Republican House Speaker John Boehner for among other things not taking his phone call.
While we understand Christie’s frustration and escalation in what is obviously a personal vendetta between the two men, as so often happens, much was left unsaid. For example the fact that the proposed bill was also chock full of pork spending such as:
- $150 million in funding for fisheries in Alaska,
- $5.3 billion to the Army corps of engineers,
- $56.8 million for charting the debris from last year’s Japanese tsunami,
- $100 million for the federal Head Start day care program,
- $20 million for a nationwide “water resources priorities study”,
- $4 million for the … Kennedy Space Center?
And others. Some more from the Weekly Standard:
I grow tired of Christie’s histrionics. He obviously lacks discipline and restraint looking at him not getting his own way and his obesity.
The voters of New Jersey may accept this type of conduct, but I won’t if he chooses to run for the Presidency.

Chris, you remember the story and the saying President Ronald Reagan used to tell on the stump:
“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”
The same here with Hurricane Sandy.
Folks are seeing first hand that “Big Government” even in Blue States is not always the answer to their problems.
On the other hand, Governor Chris Christie who was sketchy for re-election as New Jersey Governor may be winning favor with his constituents.
