Only In America: Piers Morgan on Chris Christie's Weight

During his exclusive visit with the Governor of New Jersey, Piers Morgan noted that Chris Christie seems to be balancing not only his office's budget, but also his bathroom scale.

"I couldn't help but noticing, I feel like you're slightly trimmer Governor," suggested Piers.

"I'm working on it," came Christie's reply. "We don't take any victory laps in this battle, Piers. I've been going through it for twenty plus years."

But as the Garden State Governor divulged details of an intermittent mission, and admitted to "starting to feel (my) own mortality," Morgan pondered the role of pounds in politics.

Citing examples of past presidents – most recently Bill Clinton – who had their share of struggles on the scale, Morgan suggested that pulling a little extra weight in Washington might not be such a bad thing.

"So, size matters – maybe it makes a politician more, not less, presidential. And maybe, just maybe, Chris Christie is getting in shape for a run in 2016. A real run."

In the words of Morgan, Only in America: "Either way, it shouldn't be the weight of his body that counts with the electorate. It should be the weight of his policies."

      I assume when you speak of the "fat cats" you are referring to the job creators in this country. The UK just increased their top rate on income tax to 50% and guess what? Revenues DROPPED! That's what you idiot lefties don't understand. People risk money to make money. No one's investing in job creation because we have a leftist in office who is doing everything in his power to destroy the middle class. The fat cats are already paying well over 80% of the taxes in this country, and you think that's unfair? Yes it is, when the bottom 50% pay NOTHING.

      Last year, I went to MB with my cousin and his fnierd who we call JP. JP is into collecting shark teeth. We went onto the beach with him and he found a shark tooth about an inch long! He even found 2 more!

      How much would it cost to build a 10 x12 wood storage shed and then bcirked in. Should it be set on concreteI'm planning in putting in a 10 x12 wood storage shed. I plan on having it bcirked in at a later time to save money. What should the foundation be for the shed initially and how much should each part cost (storage shed, bicked in (with labor), concrete slab (if needed)). The other option is to have a 10 x12 building built instead. How much would that cost and which is easier to build and less costly.Thank You for your help
