The Akron Beacon Journal editorial board rips John Kasich for plagiarism of Governor Strickland’s regulatory reform:

Yet what’s most striking about the Kasich plan is its own duplicative quality. In 2006, Ted Strickland campaigned making the same pledge. . . .  Almost from the start of his term, Strickland launched Advantage Ohio, part of a broader effort to improve the performance of government. In February 2008, Advantage Ohio resulted in an executive order setting in motion a comprehensive review of state regulations, especially those affecting business.

The ABJ notes the similarities in the titles of Kasich’s proposal and […]

John Kasich apparently doesn’t even know that most of Ohio’s regulations don’t even deal with businesses at all.

As part of Kasich’s endorsement of Governor Strickland’s regulatory reform, Kasich tried to stage a distracting visual for his press event (HT: Ohio Capital Blog):

OMG, just look at all those regulations!  It’s a virtual “Tower of Babble.”  How in the world can Ohio businesses operate when they’re subjected to THAT many boring brown regulatory books?

Kasich’s “visual” was a joke.  The books were each chapter of the Ohio Administrative Code.  If you click on the […]

Ordinarily, when a campaign introduces a new policy proposal, the media expects to hear a response from the opposing campaign’s communication director, maybe even the campaign manager.   Rarely, if ever, do you see the candidate himself respond, especially when he’s the incumbent.

Then again, how often do you see a challenger stupidly propose something you’ve already done?

To appreciate it’s pure pwnage, be sure to check out the entire statement, including the point-by-point citation of exactly how Kasich’s CSI “plan” is nothing more than a carbon copy of what Ted Strickland has already made law.

Nobody like a cheap imitation when they can have the real thing.

Maybe instead of debating Governor Strickland, John Kasich, the TV ad candidate can debate John Kasich, the Kasich-Taylor policy candidates.

Here’s a clip of what Kasich is running right now:


Kasich: You know, Mary and I are committed to smaller, more effective, more efficient government …

We’re going to get the job done for the people of the State.  And we’re not going to let you down.

Yet last week, Kasich introduced his JobsOhio plan to decentralize and privatize the Ohio Department of Development.  During the press gaggle at the announcement, Kasich specifically called one of the advantages of […]

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Congressman Kasich is set to announce his second policy initiative with State Sen. Keith Faber (R-Celina) and Rep. Jim Zehringer (R-Greenville).

Based on the guest list and Kasich’s platitudes to date, it’s not hard to figure out what Kasich’s policy proposal is.  I guess he could possibly finally give some details about his income tax plan….. HAHAHAHAHAHA!  (Sniff)  Okay, seriously…

He’s likely going to endorse, in some form, their companion regulatory reform bills (HB 230)  and (SB 3) which have already passed the House and Senate and have been […]
