New Jersey Governor Christ Christie’s weight has now become an issue, especially since he’s considered a potential 2016 GOP Candidate for president. No doubt his weight is raising health concerns. The Governor is taking on the issue head on firing back at critics. Over 100 years ago American had an overweight president, Republican William Howard Taft, he was overweight and his size was fodder for newspaper stories and editorial cartoons. There is a of photo three workers sitting in his huge bath tub.
If nothing else that shows that being overweight was not a barrier to the presidency for Mr. Taft. Will Governor Christie slim down to the size of say our current president? I doubt it; he could bring his weight down enough to quiet some critics. Remember this guy got elected governor of New Jersey not for his size but for what he had to offer to the voters of his state.Chris Christie and Howard Taft
