President Definition-of-Sexy? Seems it’s not so far-fetched after all. If Christie indeed decides to toss his hat into the ring for the next go-round, the 2016 presidential race could get a little more fist-pump-y.
Via WPVI-TV Philadelphia:
The first-term GOP governor says he hopes Republican Mitt Romney beats President Obama in November and seeks re-election in 2016. But if the presidency is open, Christie says he’ll “certainly think about it.”
He said: “If there’s an opportunity for me to serve in another capacity and I think I have something to add to the mix, I don’t think I’d back away from it.”
Some interpreted Christie’s statement to mean that he isn’t all that confident in Romney’s ability to beat Obama:

Chris Christie obviously isn't betting on Romney to beat PBO

Others felt a Christie presidency wouldn’t do much to further the conservative cause:
Chris Christie is not a conservative.

RT @bdomenech: Chris Christie is not a conservative. / True. He's also not all that smart.

I agree, but it would behoove us all if you listed the ways. 😉 “@bdomenech: Chris Christie is not a conservative.”

And inevitably, a few people couldn’t resist knocking Christie over his weight:

Chris Christie was on the OC boardwalk today right in front of Yiannis shaking hands and kissing babies. Thought he might eat a baby! #fatty

Why focus on a politician’s words and deeds when you can focus on his weight? Ah, tolerance.
