Christie: I’m Not Too Heavy To Run For President (VIDEO) | Talking Points Memo

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said it is “ridiculous” to believe he is too overweight to be President. “I don’t know what the basis for that is,” Christie told ABC News’ Barbara Walters in an interview posted Wednesday. “I’ve done this job pretty well, and I think people watched me for the last number of weeks in Hurricane Sandy, doing 18 hours days and getting right back up the next day and still being just as effective in the job, so I don’t really think that would be a problem.”
