Ohio Governor Reacts Appropriately to Liberal Media Inquiry
Flopping Aces ^ | April 26, 2012 | Curt

Posted on 04/27/2012 7:12:27 AM PDT by Mechanicos

Hot on the heels of President Subprime McDowngrade’s visit to Ohio — during which he attempted to take credit for Gov. John Kasich’s stunningly successful fiscal record — comes the obvious question from a reporter. Obvious, that is, if you’re a liberal Statist hack.

The governor’s reaction is priceless.

I’ve been touting Kasich for the GOP VP slot for some time now. Not only is he now governor of an EC vote-rich swing state, but as a Congressman chaired the Budget Committee that managed a balanced budged for four consecutive years. Add in that he’s young, well-spoken, attractive, family man, etc., what’s not to like?

Please let the good GOP governors and representatives do their jobs fully before touting them for higher office.

If the scum recall Governor Walker then Governor Kasich will be their next target. We got to help Governor Walker knock the unions into Lake Michigan where they belong!!!

Never forget those tards disgracing the Wisconsin Capitol Building. If we lose in WI they will go after Ohio.

In normal times, I would favor Kasich or anyone else fulfilling the term of office to which s/he was elected before ‘moving up,’ if VP can be considered ‘moving up.’

These are NOT normal times. More than anyone being touted for the GOP VP slot, Kasich has an actual track record with the nation’s finances. If we don’t get the economy straightened out really fast, we have a bigger problem than anyone realizes.

Unfortunately, even though he’s doing a really good job, he’s unpopular in Ohio and might hurt as much as he’d help.

Thank God, I am still optimistic about Wisconsin because the dirt bag students (many out of state students) will be home smoking bongs or out partying at some slum hotel in Mexico.

The question itself reveals all we need to know about the way the left and it’s enabling media think. There is no recognition of the fact that “spending” originally comes from the private sector, and the cost comes in the form of reduced economic activity.

These people think government spending has no corresponding “cost”. It’s free. It doesn’t have to come from anywhere. It can be extracted from the hands of investors and savers and spenders with no consequence at all to the overall health of the economy.

Sheesh. Liberals are just plain dumb.

I remember reading some months ago that losing the vote vs. his bill to restrict state employees’ bargaining hurt Kasich’s popularity. But, I thought that had abated.

You KNOW whoever is in this race, the unions and others on the left will be going for the jugular. In that sense, it doesn’t matter who runs on the GOP side for any office.

Oh, I understand completely. When there was talk of Jindal as VP, I had the same sense .. let him clean up LA first. McDonnell should stay in VA, Scott in FK, Walker in WI.

I suppose if we have a few good R govs who are cleaning up their states, and we have a R POTUS whose fed govt will work with and emulate the successful states, it would accomplish the same thing. Kasich just happens to have that Budget Comm experience which would be invaluable.

Little Timmy Ryan is mulling a run against Kasich but only if Strickland doesn’t decide to. Ryan won’t blow his nose unless Pelosi tells him it’s ok but HEY, the people here in Youngstown sure seem to love him (gag).

Progressive Mittens is not going to pick a conservative. He’s going to pick a mini-me. The GOPe does not want the conservative vote. I can take a hint.

As it is, I’m moving on....
