    Time magazine Cover

    A picture of Chris Christie with the heading,"Elephant In The Room!"

    Insult or flattering? Enquiring minds would like to know!

    I think they are referring to the "elephant" as the symbol of the GOP but I can see how it might be seen as an offense. But he is open and honest about his weight so I am sure Christie is okay with it.

    Time editors trying to be "clever."

    I don't think they were TRYING to be insulting, but, at the same time, I don't think they care, as long as it sells some copies.

    For his part, Chris Christie seems to have the ability to play this up.

    While I expect "But he's a FATASS" to be a rather common political attack on him, I don't think it will faze him. (No more than "Hillary's got CANKLES" will faze her.)
    Thanks from Lilly

    Time is doing it because they can get away with it, disparaging an over weight person because he's a republican/conservative

    I already agreed with you just as I would when a Right leaning publication does the same thing to a Leftie.

    That being said, Christie does realize that his weight would pretty-much preclude him from being elected President in the modern world. (that's why he's on a crash diet)

    its the truth.

    Guv Christie is morbidly obese and works under a lot of pressure in a high stress environment.. chance are pretty good it will kill him so he really should try to live healthier and lose some weight.

    Great.

    Already laying out the "Fattie can't be President because he's a fattie," line.

    If he doesn't lose weight & runs for the Presidency…we could all write the Dems attack ads:
    "If Gov. Christie can't control his own eating habits how can he control Al Quieda or Iran?" (that would be a legitimate question to ask)

    This country hasn't elected a fat President since Warren Harding in 1920.
