Clinton’s White House Doctor Donated to Romney in 2011 But Raises Alarm Over Christie’s Weight; Media Eats it Up!
Are the Clintons already campaigning? Did she ever even stop? Hilldawg’s got plenty of free time now that Foggy Bottom is in John F’n Kerry’s hands. The clues of a 2016 effort are everywhere.
That was the first thought that came to my mind this Tuesday when the mainstream media called on President Bill Clinton’s White House-era doctor, who told CNN that she was “worried” by the risk presented by Chris Christie’s weight.
“I’m worried he may have a heart attack. I’m worried he may have a stroke,“ she opined, warning “[i]t’s almost a like a time bomb waiting to happen unless he addresses those issues before running for office.”
Then came the qualifier…
“I’m a Republican. I like Chris Christie. I want him to run. I just want him to lose weight. I’m a physician more than I’m a Democrat or Republican. And I’m worried about this man dying in office.” And according to the FEC’s database, she gave $2,500 to Mitt Romney in 2011.
Fair enough. The Governor needs to lose weight, no question.
That said, I never want you to forget what I told you, Save Jerseyans: the media is gushing over him at the moment largely because he ocassionally rips into his own party. We all love the donut gags. But when the rubber hits the road in 2016, Democrats are clearly laying the groundwork to disqualify the Governor of New Jersey by an means possible – including his waistline.
Christie let his temper flare over this one, telling reporters “I find it fascinating that a doctor in Arizona who has never met me, never examined me, never reviewed my medical history or records, knows nothing about my family history, could make a diagnosis from 2400 miles away.” An equally fair point!
He needs to get used to it. We can expect a parade of doctors on TV in the coming years question Christie’s health and fitness to serve as Commander-in-Chief, and the media will pay far more attention to Chris Christie’s belly than they ever did to Benghazi or any other topic of objective greater consequence.
It’s a classic Clintonista tactic! And we know they’re everywhere on television; everyone dumps on Fox News for bias, for example, but why isn’t anyone ever concerned about the objectivity of George Stephanopoulos over at ABC? The most recent Clinton/Obama interview did, in fact, look like a “state-run” farce!
Keep your heads on a swivel.
