Governor John Kasich (R-OH) may be among my least favorite GOP candidates for President, and a recent speech he gave in his hometown may show you why.
Without naming names but quite obviously alluding to Donald Trump and Ben Carson (who are currently pulling in almost 50% of support from GOP voters), Kasich said, “Do you know how crazy this election is? I’ve about had it with these people.”
“What has happened to our party? What has happened to the conservative movement?” Kasich continued by saying he is “sick and tired of listening to this nonsense.”
If we turn this country over to somebody with wild ideas who thinks they can scream and bluster or operate their way to success, it’s my kids that are going to be at risk, and your kids, and your grandchildren. I’m going to have call it like it is as long as I’m in this race. I’m done with being polite and listening to this nonsense, and it’s time we educate the American people about the consequences of very bad choices.
Don’t you love it when the GOP candidate calls half of the Republican Party crazy? Isn’t that exactly what you want to hear? Doesn’t that make you feel more confident about the candidate and more desirous to support him?
I bet a lot of Trump and Carson supporters out there will hear this Kasich speech and think to themselves, “I love when a candidate who wants my support calls me crazy for supporting another candidate!”
(That was all sarcasm, by the way.)
Wouldn’t it be nice if, instead of complaining about the other Republican candidates (most of whom are more conservative than he is), Kasich would focus his ire and his fire on the Democrats? Perhaps he could aim a few of these pot shots about crazies and whiners at Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders instead of Donald Trump and Ben Carson? Kasich might be sick and tired of his GOP opponents, but I’m sick and tired of John Kasich.
Folks, John Kasich doesn’t deserve your support, and he doesn’t deserve to be our next President.
Here’s one other important tidbit from Kasich’s speech.
On Ben Carson’s Medicare Plan:
Why don’t we get a reality check on what the heck needs to be done in this country? Yeah, we can save Social Security, we shouldn’t get rid of it, we can save Medicare and Medicaid. We have to pay no attention to the people who we hear whining about don’t touch my program, we don’t care about that. You know why? Because you come first and they come dead last. People that get in the way of progress come dead last in my career and in my life. The people we’re gonna lift are the people who go to work every day and play by the rules.
Kasich sounds just as socialist as Bernie Sanders… maybe he should be running as a Democrat instead.
