First of all, I am not aiming to disparage Chris Christie because of his weight, as I have had to battle my own propensity to overeat for many years. And I do hope that his diet/surgical plans for losing weight is successful. I must say that I did lose some confidence in Christie ever since I saw him canoodling and schmoozing with President Obama in order to squeeze a few extra billion dollars out of Uncle Sam (other taxpayers) in order to rebuild his state of New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy.
I once thought Chris Christie would be as different from Obama as Laurel was from Hardy, but with an election in his near future, Christie is acting like a desperate lib in order to please the many Democrats he needs to again win the gubernatorial election, and later a presidency.
I am even thinking that big, Christie fangirl, Ann Coulter, has fallen out of love with him. Among his transgressions are, liberalizing the use of medical marijuana, which according to many studies, is not the best choice for treating illnesses which cause a "loss of appetite." Seattle and Colorado have gone crazy with their encouragement of the general population to smoke dope. And, that is what endorsing medical marijuana leads to. This past week, the City of Seattle sponsored a Hempfest where hundreds of under age kids were smoking the weed in the presence of police. In fact, the City Prosecutor and Chief of Police were passing out bags of Doritos to thousands of doped up Hempfesters, including the young teens. Christie has also signed onto Obmadontcare, obviously because of the huge handouts offered by the administration - as he expands Medicaid, which will eventually either break the Federal Government, State Government, or both. And, although I believe Snowden did break several laws, he has brought to light the insecurity we have on account of our fear of a government which promises to keep us secure with TOO MUCH (and probably not Constitutional) security - which Christie does not seem to have a problem with.
Christie, again acting like Obama, signed onto a law which outlaws counseling to young gays,bisexuals, and bicurious kids who might desire to change their sex/gender identity - back to what God gave them originally. I personally have known homosexuals who have regained their birth gender/sex, by the grace of God as well as through ministering and counseling. Cynthia Nixon, infamous from Sex and the City was condemned by the gay crowd when she announced that she "chose" to be gay. Anne Heche, one time "wife" of Ellen Degeneres, also switched back. So, why would the state, especially Governor Christie, deny people professional counseling which would aid them in getting out of the gay lifestyle? Politics. This shameful act of Christie should be reserved for Democrats, and not even Rinos. I have read that New Jersey has the highest concentration of shrinks (psychiatrists and psychologists) and sociologists in the country. And, according to stats, most are liberal Jews. I am only mentioning that to show what groups of people Christie must cave in to, although his extra bending over forward and backward is unnecessary, because most polls show that he has a lock on the election. He is clearly looking toward 2016 where he must troll for every liberal group under the sun in order to gain sufficient financial backing just to get into the race. However, Christie's vetoing his own anti .50 caliber rifle law must negate the support of any liberals he may have pacified with his signing the "No Gay Switching" bill. I do occasionally enjoy Christie putting on the chutzpah with the tantrums and irreverent outbursts, but if he overdoes it, that is indicative of the behavior of a moody, easily incited liberal, like a Hillary Clinton. In addition, Governor Christie should have kept a Republican in the New Jersey Senatorial seat, but, again, I think he had to appease libs, which he is now famous for doing.
That leads to the conundrum of not totally disliking Christie, because he has curbed the power of overly strong public employee unions, has all but defunded Planned Parenthood in his state, and has cut business taxes. Chris Christie is not another Obama - so far - but the allure of political power does change people to reverse themselves - as Obama has done so many times. Christie is Cum Si Cum Sa with me, and probably should just continue to reside in Drumthwacket (New Jersey governor mansion) from 2016 through 2020.
Christie is knee jerking faster than Obama, and a man of his age and experience should have more solid convictions, which cannot be shifted with every breeze that comes down the political pike. We already have a President who is more flexible than a Bendy Bus. Unfortunately, he does not ever bend for the better
