New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is undergoing tests at a hospital after he had difficulty breathing.

Spokesman Michael Drewniak tells The Associated Press that the governor was being driven to a farm in central New Jersey when the governor had difficulty breathing. He says he was taken to Somerset Medical Center out of an “abundance of caution.”

Reportedly it was an asthma attack and not more serious.

SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie was "in charge and at work" in a hospital room Thursday following emergency treatment for asthma, his deputy chief of staff said.

The blunt-talking governor, who some Republicans have been trying to persuade to run for president, was taken to a hospital Thursday after he had difficulty breathing.

Christie, who uses an inhaler for asthma, was headed to a bill signing when he felt unwell. The 48-year-old walked into Somerset Medical Center at around 10:30 a.m., said Maria Comella, his deputy chief of staff.

Christie's EKG, blood work and chest X-ray were normal, and the governor expects to be discharged from the hospital Thursday evening, Comella said.
Christie has been open about some of his health problems.

He has long struggled with his weight, which he said he started putting on after high school when he stopped playing organized sports. He's tried dozens of diets over the years with varying success and has shed some pounds in recent months.

Looking at the "Too Fat To Be President?" posed in the headline, the attack on Bachmann's migraines, and the questioning of whether McCain is too old... this kind of logic is kind of disturbing coming from the same PC police that jump on the case of anyone who uses the word retard or cripple, insurance companies for critiquing people's medical history, and other types of discrimination.

Do we have any idea about the political leanings of the person who wrote that headline? In any case, it's silly (but he would be well advised to trim down for the sake of his health.) And wasn't the migraine thing was raised by republicans? I mean waddya expect? Now McCain was unfit to be president-- but not on account of his age.

Friends said his wife, Mary Pat, was at his side. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno was in her office at the Statehouse.

Christie canceled his monthly "Ask the Governor" radio show, which was scheduled for Thursday night.

The hospital didn't immediately comment.

In addition to a breathing examination, doctors likely were performing other tests to rule out complicating factors, said Dr. Mark Rosenberg, who heads the emergency medicine department at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, N.J., and is not involved in Christie's care. Those tests might include an EKG to rule out heart problems, blood tests and chest X-rays to look for pneumonia or other infections.

"All breathing problems should be considered a medical emergency until proven otherwise," Rosenberg said.

Rosenberg said obesity can also complicate breathing problems.

It was the liberal media on MSNBC that I heard strong critisism on those who brought up the migranes. And on the itune of Keith Obermann's Countdown he stated that he greatly disagrees with her policies (and has made fun of her countless times) and went on to praise her handling of the subject of her migranes and those who brought it up.

It is OK to have a particular political point of view but to attack those of the opposite point of view for what others of your point of view have said or done is way too partisian.

The age thing I think has some merits. The weight or colour or height or any medical issue that would not hamper the person's ability to perform their duties is without merit.

And there is a big difference between what people say and how businesses or society discriminates against someone. Using Christie for example there is a huge difference between any of us calling him fat or the health unit refusing to examine him due to his weight.

Do you have any evidence at all that the people who wrote that headline have actually been "PC police," or will assumption do? The issue with insurance companies has nothing to do with PC, but whether sick people will get medical attention.

To further clarify my post (#8) Olbermann praised Bachmann's handling of those who brought up the migraines by not stooping down to their level, not that he praised those who brought up the subject.

On Thursday, he underwent an electrocardiogram, blood work and chest X-ray and said all came back normal. He said his breathing problems were likely the result of humid weather and summer allergies.
