Weighing in on politics of presidential election
People wonder if an excessively overweight person can become president. President William Howard Taft was over 300 pounds. But people did not see him often during that period of underexposure.
Gov. Chris Christie is an Italian-American. We have never had an Italian-American president. What people don’t realize is that if every overweight American voted for Christie, he would win in a landslide.
I have a good insight into Christie, being Italian and having a brother with Christie’s personality.
In many respects, Christie has a Dick Cheney personality. It is choleric, autocratic, aggressive and forceful. Unlike Cheney, however, Christie seems to have a heart that is not like a withered mango pit.
Still, we have seen the mess that bumbling bluster got us into. I refer to President Boy-George.
And then there is Hillary Clinton. It is hard to know if a woman close to 70 will have the vitality to have a successful campaign; one without the gaffs and impatience of irritability. They will attack her unmercifully. These attacks will appear to come from ignorant, low-level slime, but they will be orchestrated from entrenched sources of power.
As for the three stooges: Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, they are always good for a laugh.
