Anybody else support this? Why or why not?

Talk amongst yourselves.

There is some talk in GOP circles that his hurricane induced embrace of Obama was intended to subtly torpedo Romney and clear the way for a run in 2016; I prefer to think he was genuinely grateful for the aid to his ravaged state. I suppose time will tell.

I could not support Christ Christie. He would do nothing to eliminate the Federal Reserve or truly get the government out of the economy. I also do not think he would bring all of our troops home and stop the interventionist policies of our past. At his core, he appears to be a moderate with populist inclinations and, as a Libertarian, I could not back him.

I doubt he'll run. His embrace with Obama and refusal to campaign with Romney in the closing days will be held against him. That and he's a surly 350lb with a questionable record on conservative issues like gun rights. There is a decent chance he loses reelection next year as well.

The establishment favorite is Marco Rubio right now.

If Christie were elected we would get two Presidents for the price of one.

He isn't hard-core enough to be nominated by the Repugs. He would have a better chance running as a Democrat.

I do not support the idea, because the idea of voting for someone whose name puts me in mind of a 1960s folk-rock group makes me sad.

So, technically, he could be his own vice-president if elected.

He looks to be even chubbier than Taft

Of course, the whole country has become fatter in the past 100 years. Christie looks like the kind of guy you see piling on the carbohydrates at a buffet restaurant in the Upper Midwest. He must be diabetic.

Christie running for president could help to raise awareness of our obesity epidemic.

Except that he probably doesn't run anywhere any more. Maybe "waddling" for president would be more like it.

What are you, a freakin' supermodel? Or do you think one needs to be a supermodel to be smart or hold office or a good job?

I hate people like you that think you're better than others because of looks.

He does have four children, so there must have been a time when he could find his penis.
