    The governor’s Medicaid expansion has harmed Ohio. Now he’s set to mortally wound the GOP’s repeal-and-replace bill.Ohio governor John Kasich’s public-relations campaign for Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion could wipe out whatever chance remains for Congress to pass a substantial Obamacare-repeal bill. Medicaid expansion puts working-age adults with no kids and no disabilities on a welfare program previously reserved for the elderly, the disabled, children, pregnant women, and impoverished families. It’s responsible for a majority of Obamacare enrollment nationwide, and three-fourths of Obamacare enrollment in Ohio. House conservatives fought for passage of a bill that freezes Medicaid-expansion enrollment in 2020. But some...
  • Insufferable: John Kasich Running for President in 2020?

    A Kasich run may be just the thing to thoroughly demoralize the Big Business/Big Amnesty/Make Nice wing of the Republican National Committee As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending. As governor of Ohio, he signed off on conservative reforms, but only because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature. And it looks as if he wants to run for President .... again. Give me a break.
  • So Much for Fame: John Kasich's New Book Sinks and Sinks on Amazon

    NewsBusters ^ | April 30, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    Ohio governor and failed presidential candidate John Kasich had his new book, Two Paths: America Divided or United, published on April 25 and after just the first week it has already sunk beneath the waves of public disinterest to #264 as of this writing on Amazon. So much for the sales appeal of a presidential candidacy. It doesn't take any great genius to figure out that he thinks President Donald Trump represents the evil "Divided" while the son of a mailman is somehow the enlightened "United" one.
  • John Kasich Sounds Like He's Over The Republican Party

    BuzzFeed ^ | 04/28/2017 | Henry J. Gomez
    The Ohio governor ran for the Republican nomination and lost. Now, in his new book and on the road, he's critical of the party and frequently noting the day will come when an independent could win the presidency. Is there space for Republicans like John Kasich in the party anymore? Is John Kasich still a Republican? The Ohio governor and mainstay of the party’s mainstream is out this week with a book that at times reads like an angry breakup letter. “Oh yeah, I’m a Repub… ,” Kasich trailed off, conspicuously unable to finish the word in his rapid-fire stream...

    World leaders are "just not sure" where President Donald Trump stands on key foreign policy questions, according to Gov. John Kasich. In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," the Ohio Republican, attending a international security conference in Munich, Germany, said leaders from other countries are getting mixed messages from the president and members of his administration. ... "I've been meeting with these folks from all over the world, they are saying they are just not sure, so it's really critical that they speak with one voice on all of these critical matters of national security and supporting our...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich's apparent plans to quickly insert his voice into the recrafting of the Republican Party have been scuttled. Kasich had planned to speak Thursday at the American Enterprise Institute, a public policy think tank, in Washington D.C., sources close to the governor said Tuesday. But, the speech was canceled today in the wake of President-Elect Donald Trump's upset victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton, a source said.

"He will not be bullied by a Kenosha political operative that is unable to stand up for core principles or beliefs," Weaver said.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that he thinks Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump should apologize to President Obama for questioning his citizenship. "You know, yeah," the Ohio governor told NBC's "Meet the Press" when asked if Trump owes the president an apology. Kasich, who ended his own presidential bid in May and has not endorsed the Republican nominee, said he doesn't agree with questioning Obama's birthplace.

    Young Conservatives ^ | 9/10/2016 | John S. Roberts
    A lot of people aren’t happy that some Republicans have broken their pledge to the GOP. One of those people is RNC head Reince Priebus. Reince is warning those who don’t support Donald Trump they’ll need to watch their backs in the future. Meaning, we’re not going to help you when your election rolls around if you turn your back on us now. Makes sense – for the most part. From Newsmax: Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus says there may be “consequences” in the future for GOP presidential primary candidates who don’t stick with their pledge to support the...

    Newt Gingrich spoke with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren live from Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena on Day One of the RNC convention Monday night. At the beginning of their conversation, they addressed the controversy around who is and who isn’t present at the convention as the Republican Party gets ready to crown Donald Trump their 2016 nominee. At least one speaker, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), has yet to endorse the GOP nominee. Susteren asked Gingrich if he believed Trump’s former presidential opponent would finally announce his support for Trump during his speech Wednesday night. “Well I hope he does” endorse...

    Ted Cruz and John Kasich have a message for Donald J. Trump: They don’t care if they are not invited to speak at his convention. As Mr. Trump tries to plan a convention that will run as smoothly as possible, he said in an interview with The New York Times last week that he would not invite either Mr. Cruz or Mr. Kasich, both former rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, to speak at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland unless they endorsed him. That is fine, both said on Monday. A spokeswoman for Mr. Cruz, Catherine Frazier, said the...

JEFF ROE: I would be remiss if I didn't point out that without data, without online fund raising, they kicked my butt anyway. That's on top of us raising $93 million, which was a record (at the time) for Republican primaries, getting eight million votes. Mr. Trump has a way to control the news cycle. I believe they will be able to put it together, but they have to get going now. The...

    The media has been fighting Donald Trump tooth and nail for the last 7-8 months. Some Republican candidates decided they would give false accounts that Trump was eating up great media time while others weren't getting anything, but when the truth really came out, you saw how the media had been planning to destroy Trump all along. The Washington Post dropped a bombshell story on Friday that mentioned how dozens of anti-Trump delegates were going to walk away from Trump at the GOP convention. Instead of Trump supporters fearing this action, many got angry or mad. They wanted to know what...

    Donald Trump on Saturday accused Jeb Bush of mounting a convention coup against him, after reports that Republican delegates who don't personally support Trump are looking for ways to avoid voting for him this summer. "By the way, Jeb is working on the movement, just so you understand," Trump said to supporters at a rally in Las Vegas. "Jeb is one of the people that's working — and the other one should be obvious," he said, though he didn't elaborate further. Earlier at the rally, however, Trump echoed the Republican National Committee and said the reports were a media hoax....

    A coalition of Republican delegates is mounting a last-ditch effort to block Donald Trump from obtaining the GOP nomination by pushing for a "conscience clause" that would allow delegates to vote against the presumptive nominee. Kendal Unruh, a Colorado delegate, organized a call with dozens of other delegates Thursday night to discuss ways to block Trump at the convention. The group, Unruh says, marks the coalescing of disparate "pockets of resistance" -- including backers of Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich -- which had been opposing Trump with little success.

    A flyer circulated before Donald Trump’s Friday rally in Richmond, Virginia, called for violence and declared “passive resistance … has no effect on heartless racists.” Under a headline of “Self-Defense,” the flyer reads: We fully support your right to self-defense, we do not expect you to take a beating by Trump goons in order to “look good.” Your safety is important, protect yourself. Fascism wants us to peacefully resist while it steamrolls us. We take our inspiration from the workers of Spain who rose up by the millions to fight fascism when it came to their country. Passive resistance works...

    No one exposes the real political danger behind hidden ideological alignments as good as Donald Trump. The beating of the Trump supporters in San Jose last night, and the responses, highlight a case in point. What do Nikki Haley, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, and Brad Thor have in common? They are all on the same page blaming Donald Trump for not accepting the physical beatings that come with expressions of free speech and challenging the orthodoxy of their political views. Each of these voices in their own way telling Trump, and by extension his supporters,...
