Do Americans Identify With Chris Christie?

Posted by: wrichcirw

Many people think he wouldn't have a shot at the White House if he wasn't obese...But the vast majority of America is overweight or obese.

  • Yes, Americans identify with Chris Christie's weight problem

  • No, Americans do not identify with Chris Christie because of his weight problem

  • Sure they do! He's middle-aged, over-weight & loses his temper on a regular basis! He'd like to eat a dozen donuts, instead he's having surgery. That's pretty much the majority of Americans. It's an ongoing struggle. That's how Jenny Craig & Weight Watchers remain in business. It's why bariatric clinics are popping up, all over the country. But identifying with a politician personally & politically are two very different things.

  • BwaaHaa Sweet tea that was classic

  • The statement that the "vast majority of Americans are obese" is incorrect.

  • 1) Not because of his obesity 2) The statement that the vast majority of America is obese is incorrect

"vast majority of Americans are obese" is incorrect. You're incorrect in how you quoted me. I said the vast majority of Americans are overweight or obese, and that is the truth: http://frac.Org/initiatives/hunger-and-obesity/obesity-in-the-us/

The only problem I see is your word choice "vast:

Over 2/3 is a vast majority. In Congress, 60% is a "supermajority".

I had no idea that a specific number classified "vast". I'll look it up.

It's rhetorical, sure, but accurate. It's clearly not a slim majority, to put it in perspective.

Lol, pun intended =)

Alright, thanks for saving me the time of looking it up

If you mean identify with Christie by being a loud mouthed, overbearing, obnoxious, rude, self serving, throw anyone under the bus for his own gain, waste millions [taxpayers mind you] on fact 'fact' check on his involvement in the Bridge over his troubled waters, and then be arrogant and in denial like a wussie, then I would say YES

Macgreggor says2014-03-29T10:50:31.7677504-05:00

She's not American, so that's why.
CheeseFries says2014-03-29T20:34:31.9083732-05:00
Now how rude was that of you, Macgreggor?

I almost fully agree with sweetTea's opinion, lol.
