When I watch John Kasich, one word comes to mind: humble.  Kasich points out that he’s running for Governor because he wants to give back his talents to Ohio after being a successful businessman of a two-man office of a company that lead into the world’s largest bankruptcy.  It has nothing to do with the fact that he’s unemployed and is the only conservative who can’t get ratings on Fox News.

Kasich also wants you to know that he thinks Strickland’s Centers of Innovation is a great idea as well as Strickland’s idea of getting universities to do more to work with private industries to develop new products, except he thinks it’s his idea.

Kasich also wants you to know that he’s going to let the people applying for Third Frontier decide who gets it.  Yeah, that shouldn’t cause any problems…

Also, he also wants you to know that despite “only working in a two-man office” for Lehman, he has “business experience” to be Governor.  According to Kasich, that means my internship at Great American Insurance Company makes me qualified to run IBM… or something.

He also wants you to know what a living hell it was to accept all that money from Lehman as he disagreed with its philosophy and greed.  Except, of course, when he worked there he called Lehman Brothers’ CEO the kind of guy he’d go into battle with.  Kasich’s either a liar or he’s a Benedict Arnold.  He and his former idol Dick Fuld should take ten paces and fire over this dishonor.  Who would you root for, though?

No wonder Kasich won’t release his tax returns, it must have been so soul crushing for him to work for an employer he so philosophically disagreed with the entire eight years he worked there.  Every half a million bonus check was a dagger into his Republican soul.  That’s why he continues to minimize his role yet again in this interview… public records be damned, it’s the only way he can cope!

Kasich honestly has no idea that the reason we have a budget problem is because of tax cuts we passed to make Ohio more competitive for businesses.

Kasich also can’t directly say that Strickland’s to blame for the job losses, or that Ohio would have been better economically if he were already Governor right now.  I think those two moments unravel the fraud that is his campaign.

Kasich now calls his tax plans “goals….”  you know, like you create every New Years….. “Yeah, if we can get there.”  That’s what Kasich says about his own tax plan that he used to say was a necessity to get Ohio out of a death spiral.  Now, it has all the conviction of Lindsey Lohan swearing this time she’ll do better on probation…. Too soon?

John Kasich, lifelong politician and millionaire, says he identifies with the Tea Party because… they’re sick of politicians and millionaires… Oh, John, why do you hate yourself so much?

Kasich then talks about polls and just outright lies by saying “We’ve been ahead all along.”  Depends on what you mean by all along, I guess.

Apparently, John Kasich is half man-half frog because throughout the interview he looked like he either swallowed a fly or was trying to get one.

    No one SHOULD have to release tax forms, it's a personal decision! You think he should release his, how about you release yours to me, right now.

    Just because he's going to run for governor it doesn't mean he has to release all the details of his personal life.

    Instead of going around spreading things that aren't true, why don't you research Ted Strickland and how badly he's failed Ohio, start a blog, and then people might visit it because the stuff you write about Ted will be true, there's not one good thing that you can say about him!

    Seriously, stop spreading lies, you aren't in Middle School anymore.

    Grow up.

  • …says the person literally a year or two away from middle school. Do they teach irony in English anymore?

    It doesn't become a lie just because you say so. Get a brain moran.

    Every gubernatorial candidate in modern Ohio history has released their tax returns so that Ohioans know of any economic interest they might have that influences them as Governor. Kasich knew that when he was running. Sorry, but our public officials aren't entitled to the kind of privacy you and I enjoy. Second, it's relevant so that Ohioans know how much Kasich stands to personally benefit from his own tax proposals.

    I'm not running for Governor; he is.

    Yet again, you claim that I'm “spreading things that aren't true,” but you can't cite one example. Calling someone a “liar” simply because you disagree with them is acting like you're still in Middle School.

    Can't write one good thing about Ted Strickland, huh? You're right. I could write a million.
    Like the countless times Ted Strickland helped veterans in our communities get the medals they were wrongly denied in combat, or get the medical care they needed.

    Ted Strickland has guided this state through a horrible global economic situation, worked in a bipartisan fashion to cut taxes 17% while keeping our budget balanced, and for the first time in a generation, kept tuition from massive annual double-digit increases.

    He's reformed our colleges and universities into a comprehensive University System and developed public-private partnerships to have our colleges work with our major industries to develop new products in energy and manufacturing.

    Everything Ted Strickland has done in public service has been done guided by his personal faith and grace in a manner demonstrating great compassion and dedication.

    Ted Strickland has worked tirelessly to improve public education and has instituted what national experts have called one of the most innovative public education reforms in the nation.

    He's enacted a comprehensive package of energy policies that avoided massive hikes in utility rates while encouraging the implementation and widespread use of renewable energy sources to help end our dependence on fossil fuels.

    As evidenced by his bipartisanship, he was able to negotiate a compromise between animal rights activitists and farmers for a package of proposals that address animal rights activists concerns in a manner that doesn't jeopardize family farming.

    When called upon, Strickland has made, literally, life and death choices to make sure our criminal justice system does not wrongfully punish the innocent.

    We're the top read blog (liberal or conserative) in the State. Why would I need to start another new blog?

    Everything I wrote in the post is based on something Kasich said. I'm sorry you don't like that, but that doesn't make it a lie.

    I'm sorry your parents or someone has apparently brainwashed you into thinking that anyone like Ted Strickland is a worthless evil human being. Hopefully, you'll grow out of that and start thinking for yourself.
