    The woman said she liked him and wanted him to run; she just wanted him to be healthy. If he cannot take this very gentle and well-intended criticism, he should not even be considered for president.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

      There's this famous quote about 'when learn to love their children more than they hate us', blablabla.

      To a much softer degree, it's the case here. When each side learns to stop bending into a pretzel to justify bad manners just because it was directed at a politician of the party we don't care for, then we can have normal discourse.

      This concern trolling of "just wanting him to be healthy" is reserved for his actual physicians and his immediate family and close friends. Nobody else's opinion was asked for, really.

      Wow... Just... wow...

        When Christie is a private citizen and not responsible to the taxpayers, then only his actual physicians and immediate family and close friends are entitled to be concerned. It's astonishing to me that anyone can self-righteously proclaim criticism of a public figure to be off limits. Wow .... just ... wow. That's absurd.
