Posted on 06/06/2009 9:50:59 PM PDT by thedmasterr
John Kasich announced his run for Ohio Governor Monday, looking to unseat Taxin Ted Strickland. John Kasich is a great man and can clearly turn around Ohio and bring us back to prosperity. He supports phasing out the income tax, lowering deficits, cutting pet project spending, eliminating the estate and death taxes, promoting personal responsibility, and creating an atmosphere that is welcoming to entrepreneurship and business.
Under Ted Strickland, Ohio has lost hundreds of thousands of jobs, with the jobless rate reaching 10.2%. Buckeye Institute found that Stricklands use of the stimulus money could cost Ohio an additional 91,000 jobs. Strickland has raised fees, going against his promise not to raise taxes. Fees are taxes and they hurt everyone. Taxin Ted has spent a deficit, leading our state deficit to be over $7 billion.
Overall, Strickland has destroyed Ohios economy. . .

Of course there was his questionable vote in 1993 but my sources tell me that he will soon make a formal statement regarding the vote.
Anything is better than Taxin' Ted.
You're not his former chief of staff that he used to live with, are you? (rhetorical)
You've been posting for a week. You have two posts on Kasich and another that links to his announcement on another subject and then a post that links to your blog piece "Gay marriage- Queer talk":
I don't care what opinions you have, and I'm not voting for him strictly along 2nd Amendment issues, but with past rumors and your posts, it might not be the best image for Kasich's campaign.
So you’d rather leave taxin’ ted in office than vote for a guy who is going to come out with a statement about his 1993 vote? There is no way he would ever pass any gun control in Ohio, instead he’d probably leave it as is or even reduce gun control. He is largely pro-gun, minus his vote for the brady bill.
And did you read the blog post on gay marriage? If you did, you would know that it has a conservative answer. Instead of abandoning principle, why not give Kasich a chance?
You are never going to agree with every politician on everything. Kasich is somewhere around 95/100 for me, which is pretty darn good.
So if you are conservative, you should vote Kasich. End of discussion. The choices will be Kasich or Strickland, and seeing as how Strickland is basically a lap dog for the Democratic/Socialist agenda, I’m going to go ahead and say Kasich is the way to go for everyone whose last name doesn’t end in Marx.
I gave him a chance until _he_ abandoned principle. So now 15 years later, only when he wants to be governor, is he now going to explain away his anti-2nd amendment vote.
It's one thing to compromise on certain legislation dealing with implementation of certain principles. It's another to not just violate the constitutional oath one took, but to revive a bill that would do that, that was dead in water.
And anyone can make the lesser of two evils argument - all that means is that you'd vote for a Mussolini over Hitler. No thanks.
I won't sanction betrayal even if they say they would have done different had they known the political fallout.
