The Dispatch posted a web-only letter today by John Kasich titled Governor’s budget plan will worsen Ohio’s plight.

The letter retardedly attacks Ted Strickland for creating a balanced budget without raising taxes without offering anything substantive in the way of alternatives.

Kasich offers no real solutions, only a few sentences mirroring the standard, out-of-date Republican talking points on the need to “streamline government” and lower taxes on businesses.

That crap may work on Fox news, John, but if you have any intention of not getting blown out of the water next November you’re going to have to do a lot better than that.
