Should New Jersey Governor Chris Christie run for president in 2016? I don't think so! First he is too "fat" (he needs to trim down and loose weight, the stress being a president is too great and it will kill him); second, he seems to be the kind of person that will say anything that people want to hear, to get elected just like Obama did when he was campaigning. I personally, don't trust the man, He just doesn't look "sincere" ,nor "honest" nor "humble' enough to be president, neither does Hillary Clinton.

I agree with you. A vote for Hillary is a vote for B. O. We need someone in office that loves the U. S. I'm sick of all the garbage.

We had the same problems and worse under previous presidents, you can't blame one president for what has been going on for the past 30 years of presidents then expect for him to fix it without any help from congress in 8 years.

He doesn't need congress he does what he wants, that includes screwing the U> S. A> wake up ! He's done more harm than all the other presidents put together. Everyone in Germany believed in Hitler also, look what happened there. Wake up us citizens before we are all in the bread line.
