Now that the biggest theater on earth is beginning we will be bombed by all those wannabes that think they are presidential material……if we are honest then most of those running are NOT presidential material.
One name that is floating out there in the cyber sphere is New Jersey governor, Chris Christie…….he has been making news ever since he was elected…..most of the news centers around his attitude….he is a bully and all round mean guy, at least according to some……but most of the national news is about the scandals that have surrounded him…..the tunnel thing…..the Sandy recovery…..and his biggest one yet….the bridge-gate……if he survives legal challenges and the media onslaught then he will be a candidate and one that needs to be watched, according to the media, that is……..pundits love Christie. Why? Every time he opens his mouth he makes news……he bullys, he condescends, he rails and he is just mean.
Being a progressive I could go off on some diatribe about his politics but why? I will leave that to those that want to generate the controversy……I want to talk about his health…….
I ask questions…..questions that most Americans do not think of when dealing with any given subject…….I guess they are too confused to ask, especially if they are letting the media yell in their ear……
The issue I will address is one that most Americans have forgotten…….that is most but not me.
We all know of Christie’s weight problem…..and after much written and talked about it he decided to try and do the right thing and lose some weight……about 2 years ago he decided to have surgery…….
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie revealed earlier this week that he had secretly undergone Lap-Band surgery in February to bring his weight under control, a top Christie aide told ABC News.
Lap-Band surgery is among the less-invasive forms of gastric band surgery. According to the company’s website, the procedure is performed laparoscopically, meaning the surgeon makes a few small incisions in the abdomen, then uses long, thin surgical instruments to encircle the stomach with a silicone and titanium band.
weight loss is much slower with Lap-Band compared to gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgeries. Ponce said most Lap-Band patients lose one to two pounds a week, and that it can take two or more years to reach a healthy weight.
Okay….even with the low side of weight loss of 1 pound per week….he should have lost over 100 pounds in the two years…..
I am not seeing it…..how about you?
If he had the surgery….what happened?
Should he be asking for his money back? Or was it the state’s money he used?
If he survives his legal challenges and decides that he is of presidential material….will this whole weight loss thing become a bullet aimed at his candidacy?
Some may think I am a dick for questioning his weight…..if so be it………but 2 years ago it was a big news story and he was out there everywhere telling of his decision…..so why not question the outcome?
