John Kasich has broken with a fairly recent tradition of Ohio’s governor by not sleeping overnight on the Ohio State Fairgrounds.  The reason we’ve consistently heard that he’s given (but I’m unable to find a published news report confirming it) is that one of his daughters has severe allergies  (even though the tradition has never required the Governor’s kids to sleep in the State Fair barn.)

Which is why I was surprised to see this item in the Columbus Dispatch:


Gov. John Kasich decided not to follow tradition of his predecessors and sleep overnight at the Ohio State Fair. But his family did.

First Lady Karen Waldbillig Kasich and daughters Reese and Emma, along with Mrs. Kasich’s sister and three kids, visited the fair and camped overnight at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources area on the fairgrounds. They took in a concert, walked around the fairgrounds, and made smores around a campfire.

The Kasich’s twin girls slept in a yurt (a nomid-style hut), while mom overnighted in a camper.

So, where was the Governor sleeping that night?  Cause, frankly, it sounds like camping out with my wife and kids for a night like this sounds like a fun thing to do.  Maybe Kasich has a severe  s’more allergy.

What a pretentious ass.

    Do you know anyone who claims he is a “fun guy to be around” under any circumstances? I bet the kids at the fair had more fun with the girls and Mrs. Kasich. I can’t count the number of stories I have heard about Kasich being rude or uninterested in situations where every other politician I know would be charming and probably quite happy to meet and speak with a voter/constituent. I often wonder why someone like John Kasich became a politician, and how he managed to do so well in the field. Maybe the governor is the one with
     severe allergies, whether physical or psychological.

    Oh he was there. He was sleeping with the pigs. Just a normal night.

    He probably stopped in the strip club at Cleveland Ave and 270 for a quick lap dance before meeting going home to surf for internet porn.

  • For all Kasich’s Napoleonic stature or fake regular guy bluster, the man is just an obedient  middle management type clearing his in and out boxes like his bosses want; squirreling away what he can glean from their leavings.  The barn is just to close to the shed.

    He was probably afraid he may run into some actual middle class people, the filthy , dirty handed people.

    Sometimes I wonder if Kasich understands how the Internet works.  People can actually check back for years of his statements and pull them up to use against his remarks du jour.  Maybe he does know, but doesn’t care. 

  • Because he doesn’t care.
    Because he doesn’t work for us.
    Because he thinks he is better than us
    Because he was doing something potentially bad

    Those are the only ones that I can think of to explain Prince Johnny.

    He is so far above himself hes stuck up his own butt …………
    There are treatments for allergies  —  to bad theres no treatments for bad governors .

    Jim Rhodes is probably rolling in his grave.  John Kasick (spelling intentional) is such a selfish, self-centered ass.
