Kasich’s budget proposal is full of overreaching, poorly-informed and incompletely thought-out “reforms” like this one that forces college professors to teach more classes in addition to their already heavy workload.

According to a recent survey at the Ohio State University, faculty members work an average of 57 hours a week and, as we’ve reported before, full-time assistant professors at Ohio State had an average base salary of $64,410.86

Now here’s the part where you get to see what an obnoxious, self-centered and completely hypocritical human being our new Governor is:

As we reported back in August John Kasich spent seven years ‘working’ for OSU. He was paid $50,000 a year and his assistant was paid $20,000 a year – and all he had to do was show up once a month and give a lecture.

You heard that correctly. John Kasich and his long-time Chief-of-Staff Don Thibaut were paid MORE than the average OSU professor – and they worked fewer hours in the entire year than a professor works in a single week.

And in John Kasich’s mind professors at the same university are getting paid too much and working too little? College professors at public universities, to John Kasich, are nothing more than overeducated, lazy, mooching civil servants.

It’s crap like this that keep me wondering which is greater: John Kasich’s contempt for people who actually work for a living or his own exaggerated and undeserved sense of self-importance.

    “College professors at public universities, to John Kasich, are nothing more than overeducated, lazy, mooching civil servants.”

    Oh, the irony!

    John Kasick himself is nothing more than a lazy, mooching civil servant. Where did he spend most of his professional career? Sucking the public teat in the General Assembly and then Congress. Then he parlayed that into his brief stint in the private sector.

    Maybe a bit of projection there?

    John Kasich………A man overwhelmed by his own under importance,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • stryx

    I can see his point.

    I mean he had to show up and give a lecture once a month.

    How freakin’ hard was that? What are all those lazy layabouts with their grant writing and research and publication and lectures and grading and advising and office hours and staff committees… What are they complaining about?

    Kasich got paid 50k a year to give a lecture once a month, so someone who gives 12 lectures a month is getting paid $600,000 a year right?

    That poor guy from Utah that OSU just hired to try to help to possibly maybe someday monetize research is only getting paid $420,000 a year. (W00t!! 1 job created! GO BUCKS!)

    Where’d that $70k a year come from anyway?

    Maybe Kaisich is just using his own past performance as a guideline for being vastly overpaid

  • For the record, Kasich has a BA in Political Science. Ted has a BA, two masters degrees and a PhD.

    Oh so a BA in poli-sci is like a degree ..to lecture…. lol….. so do you think his gpa was 2.5 ??
    sorry could not resist .. after the passage of hb21..
    maybe after 2014 TFA will hire him….

  • Enjoyed reading this blog, just wanted to say thank you

  • CDR Jan

    I have a BA in Political Science, as well as a master’s in Education. Guess I’m more qualified than King John to be governor. (Not to mention lecturing at Ohio State.) lol

  • Lzbolles

    And….you CANNOT get into Graduate School with the 3-year degreee he is proposing.

  • Lacklandgd

    I’m guessing that’s why kasich thinks teaching is soooo easy…he only taught/talked 12 times in one year!…Put HIM in a public school classroom…guarantee you he’d pi$$ his pants..and make a run for the door! What a self-important a$$!

  • irishgal

    This is hysterical (and I do agree that he is crazy) – what shocks me is that he was actually paid to speak. I honestly do not know how anyone at OSU could justify paying this amount of money for anyone to lecture once a month much less this buffoon.

    Excellent summary.
