(CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie not only shoots down questions about running for president in 2012, he also doesn't think he's vice presidential material.
"The person that picked me as vice president would have to be sedated," Christie said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Seriously, forget it."
The one-term Republican governor said his blunt talk, much of which has made him popular among national Republicans, means he isn't a good fit for the number two spot on the GOP ticket in the next election.
"I mean that's who I am and I don't think that's vice presidential material," Christie said referencing an interaction he had with a voter who questioned where he chooses to school his children.
A potential Christie endorsement in the presidential primary season depends on how strongly he feels about the candidates, a decision he has yet to make. But he said the country is looking for someone like him at the national level to deliver straight talk.
"What they do say in New Jersey is, we like him and we think he's telling us the truth," Christie said. "I think we need to have that type of politics on the national level."
That blunt talk applied to the issue of gay marriage Sunday. Off the heals of the New York bill signed into law Friday to allow same-sex couples to legally wed, Christie said he would not sign a bill to legalize such unions.
"I am not a fan of same-sex marriage, it's not something I support," Christie said. "I believe marriage should be between one man and one woman. That's my view and that will be the view of our state because I wouldn't sign a bill like the one that was in New York."
