He took a few stands the last few years and Dems easily mobilized and got OH voters against him as Ohio is barely purple.
Voter ID was one where he got clobbered.
Medicaid expansion looks like ‘free’ stuff courtesy of uncle Obama.
He's not going to convince Ohioans’s to personally go without health insurance esp when it looks free to the state.
I admit this is disappointing but remember : when Rush+CO make demands that all these Purple state Rs should give up their seats for one ‘principle’ or another that he cites, he makes mo money the more Dems take over. That is the nature of his business.
This is disappointing for sure, but re-districting is key to Pelosi taking back the House..
Still missing a point. When a Republican Governor acts like a Democrat, it’s far more damaging nationally than when a Democrat governor acts like a Democrat - especially related to anything Obama Care.
Kasich knew what Ohio was before he ran for Governor. If it cant’ be governed conservativally, then it does our side only harm for an R to govern it like a D. I don’t want to hear shit from him on Hannity or anywhere else any more.
So “moderates” are Rush’s bete noire because he wants Dems in power to boost ratings? He isn’t what I’d call the most intellectually consistent guy, and might slot his conscience’s throat to stay in power. But I find this highly incredible. You’re taking liberties to win the age-old victory versus purity debate. Go to any number of current Karl Rove thread to see how the lines have been drawn. Even Rovian establishment types, near as I can tell, haven’t yet advised Pubs to expand medicaid in the states to keep Dems from office lest they expand it ever so slightly more.
This from the guys who nominated Mitt Romneycare.
