Romney Made Fun of Christie’s Weight



More details are trickling out of Double Stuf Down: Game Change 2012 about Mitt Romney’s decision not to select Chris Christie as a running mate. And the latest one may have captured the goshdarned meanest thing the Mittster’s ever said.

“Romney marveled at Christie’s girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus,” the authors write. “Watching a video of Christie without his suit jacket on, Romney cackled to his aides, ‘Guys! Look at that!’”

Also: Their search for a veep was called “Project Goldfish,” and Christie’s nickname was: “Pufferfish.” Nice. [Washington Post]
