Chris Christie

The Rock Body Slams

Political Video

Chris Christie can take down a plate of buffalo wings, but he can't beat The Rock ... at least not when it comes to his political satire video.

Christie posted a YouTube video this week ... a mock trailer that portrayed the New Jersey governor as an action hero fighting for pension reform. But the video -- titled "No Pain, No Gain" -- featured a shot of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson from one of his films.

Johnson's lawyers complained and the video was taken down. It was re-cut ... sans The Rock ... and re-posted again. Christie's Twitter page read, "Unfortunately The Rock is in high demand & won’t be able to appear in our Summer flick. But #NoPainNoGain lives on."

BTW ... The Rock is a registered Republican.

Well, The Rock being in the video would be like an endorsement, people would think he OK'd it. And you don't try to force someone into an endorsement. They should have gotten permission.

If Gov Christie doesn't become our next President, this country is going to hell in a handbasket.

The Rock seems like a really private guy who probably doesn't want to be attached to any political motivations publicly.
Don't be a Chuck Norris.

How can he run a country when he can't even pick healthy foods from a grocery shelf?

I think Christie would be an improvement over Obama. Actually I think anybody would be an improvement. The current USA status hasn't been this bad since Pres. Carter!

What a filthy pig to assume he could steal the endorsement of someone without their permission, rethuglicon or not.
