(CBS News) The New Jersey governor's office somehow managed to determine that the "Late Show with David Letterman" has made 327,832 fat jokes about Chris Christie. As for the number of questions he's received about running for either president or vice president? His aides could only summarize, "Too many to count."

A press release titled "Chris Christie by the numbers" went up on the governor's website Wednesday, taking "a look back at everything across three balanced budgets." Ranging everywhere from Twitter followers (125,820) to bills vetoed (39) to Politifact.com ratings of "Pants on Fire" (four), the list boils down to the apparent point of the list: "Tax increases: 0."

The infographic is likely just a reminder to Christie's constituents, or his office merely having some fun, but it will surely kick up the dust that had somewhat settled around his speculated role in presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's veepstakes consideration.
