Back in early March Kasich told Gongwer that SB5 wasn’t political and it wasn’t an attack on unions. He also said he respected unions so much that he wouldn’t hold a ceremonial bill signing if the bill was passed by the General Assembly.

Gov. Kasich said he didn’t anticipate holding a ceremonial bill signing event for the contentious proposal.

“This is hard for people and anything that’s hard – I want to be respectful of other people’s feelings their thoughts and their emotions,” he said.

We’ve know for awhile that the first two statements are obviously lies: this bill is absolutely political and its only purpose is to break public sector unions. It turns out the third statement was a lie too.

John Kasich announced this afternoon that he IS holding a ceremonial bill signing for SB5 live, and he’s broadcasting it live on ONN at 7PM tonight.

Not only does Kasich not respect unions enough to keep his original promise, but he’s rubbing salt in their still fresh wounds by broadcasting it live on TV.

    I didnt vote for him I voted for Strickland how many people that are complaining can say that? He said what he was going to do in his campaign speeches did people that voted for him and are now surprised by his actions, not realize that?

    I followed the campaign as closely as anyone. I think it’s fair for people to be surprised at SB 5. He never highlighted collective bargaining reform in the campaign at all.

    He is such a liar. 1984 land where every lie is the truth. He could care less about anyone’s feelings. He just knows how to play on them to get elected to wreck stuff like Rethugs only know how to do.
    He is a monstrous combo of evil rotten Ronnie and Nixon, guess that makes him Bush 3.0.

    Oh, I forgot, is he going to take a victory lap and run up the capitol steps like in “Rocky”.

    Or is he going to yell: I win, I win, I win, I win, I win……

    It’s pretty clear that with the amended bill, Kasich is now dropping any pretense of moderation (he pretended to to that earlier this year), and is going full Walker. Walker’s poll numbers are better than his, and he must feel its because Walker has galvanized his base more. It’s only going to get worse, folks…

    Stuck here at work 9:27 pm being forced to watch fakenews. His royal Hign-Ass kasich is on. nothing but lies. he says SB5 doesn’t cut pay of workers. What bullshit.

    Went to Ricknbacker today to see the L Co Marines return home. Not one F-ing bit surprised to not see Kasich and any other limp-dicked GOP slug on hand to greet the troops and welcome some “public employees” back home.

    Those GOP pieces of shit were too busy be having a political circle jerk with their screw the public employees and destroy public education agenda.

    The D’s better strap it up and get the voters energized to rid Ohio of these GOP jerkoffs

    I don’t think anything he said in the campaign would have led anyone to believe that SB5 was on its way.

    But for some of the other things he’s been doing…

    No, they didn’t. A woman I work with came in a week after the election all upset. Seems that if she’d known that he’d give up the rail money and if she’d known his view toward education she wouldn’t have voted for him.
