From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Considering the budget contains so many unproven fiscal reform ideas, matched with deep cuts to local governments, the governor was asked whether he had any concern that this budget may not actually achieve the intended goals.

"It’s a good question," Kasich said. "We just have to execute. I mean, JobsOhio, has to execute. No missteps.”

So, the Kasich budget is as “structurally” balanced as the Kasich Administration is infallible.  This from a guy with a notorious history in Congress in making incorrect economic projections, then went onto to Lehman Brothers…. and JobsOhio is in the hands of a California venture capitalist who has no real policymaking or broad economic development experience.  A guy who has such tunnel vision he cannot conceptualize economic development beyond the context of venture capital, which is actually a very small component in the private sector of economic development entities.  It’s all up to Kvamme, a guy who gave us the Bob Evans, Diebold, and American Greetings deals.

At this point, we should start selling ads to Goldline or something.

I mean, if the fiscal soundness of the budget relies on the infallibility an Administration that got Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and St. Patrick’s Day confused, WE. ARE. BONED.

    Point being that Kasich made a ton of bad economic projections whike in Congress and then chose to work at Lehman…which proved to be another bad move.

    On the personal side, your post reads more like a hissy fit than a logical retort.

    Kasich is already a failure with a 0.1% chance of being re-elected. He’s made more public missteps than any politician in the history of politics. And he’s managed to do that in 6 months.

    If you want to bring polls into this, let’s rerun the 2010 election and see who wins. Strickland by about 20 percentage points, that’s what the polls are saying.

    The sooner Ohio rids itself of this catastrophic mistake the better.

    Where’s the burn?  Do you always talk like a teenage kid on MTV’s “Yo Mama”?

    And where have you been PERSONALLY attacked?  All I’ve said is that I pity that you are such a hateful person that you have to vilify public teachers to make yourself feel good.

    Yes, how dare Ted Strickland become Governor with not more than his experience in Congress and beinga form college professor, prison psychologist, and a Methodist minister.

    We instead should have elected someone like Kasich, a career politician who’s only private sector experience was a rainmaking gig he traded in his public fame for despite have zero or no practical experience until the company collapsed in the most epic bankruptcy of modern times.
