The Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, is contemplating on whether or not to participate as a candidate during the 2012 presidential election. However critics are bashing him for being overweight and being too fat to be president of the United States. This is an example of Non Sequitor because being slightly overweight has nothing to do with how successful he could potentially be as president.
The news reporters have been comparing him to former U.S. president William Taft who was over 300 pounds and had to get a custom made tub because he was too fat to bathe in one. Reporters are also stating that overweight people are less likely to get jobs and are paid less than average sized people.
This is an awful technique in my opinion because an individual's weight doesn't have much to do with their intellectual decisions. An overweight man is capable of running this country. It's not like he is severely overweight and it is causing his health to decline. Therefore this is Non Sequitor because being fat does not follow the premise. Being president does not include running a marathon.
