The growing media reports of the Tea Party’s resistance movement against Gov. Kasich is prompting the GOP high command to  hunt for new ways to wiggle him through the 2014 election without an awful backlash from  his former backyard on the right.  One thought that is attracting more than casual interest is for the GOP to secede  from its frayed old banner and form a third party with an appealing new name.

Conceding that the move could have a depressing effect on the party’s traditional Lincoln Day dinners, one advocate of a split said  sustaining the governor’s “Ohio miracle” was far more important  than a party’s name.  “Not one person in a thousand knows what GOP stands for  these days  anyway,” he said.

    Let’s just imagine what it takes to make Mr. Kasich look good . . .

    Ohio Miracle? These stooges think Ohians don’t know that our state is just crawling along not even keeping up with the rest of the country, has crumbling roads and bridges, pitiful school funding, out-of-reach college costs, and a women-hating legislature and governor. Just saying something doesn’t make it so and Ohio voters know it.

    A for sale sign on the private home the taxpayers of Ohio spent millions on for security.

    Billions of dollars in propaganda.

    Kasich needs a minder to keep him from speaking in public as to avoid those pesky off the cuff comments that have no basis in fact. If they can keep him from opening his mouth he has a much better chance in the next election.

    I always thought it was a miracle that Kasich’s handlers were able to keep his mouth shut for at least a year before the 2010s, thereby enabling him to barely win. Now his mouth has been loose for 3 years, and the Dems need to just keep replaying over and over the pearls which have dropped from his lips.
