    Kasich is such a loser. I was really looking forward to seeing him in office here in 2010.

    I’m thrilled never to have to vote for him again.

    “Compassion” is a euphemism for sell-out. When Obama offered the bait (temporary federal funding for a massive expansive of Medicaid), John Kasich put together a coalition of Democrats and to-get-along, g0-along Republicans to accept the bait. Down the road, Ohio will be stuck with the whole bill . . . and, by then, John Kasich will have departed from the scene. I would not vote for the man for dog-catcher.

    Kasich’s accomplishments in Ohio are impressive.  However, he borders on bragging when talking about what he has done, and comes across defensive even when he is on offense.  Amazingly, he has all the bluntness of Chris Christie without any of the NJ Goodfellas type charm.  Great record, he belongs in an administration somewhere, but is not the guy to sit in the Oval Office.

    Not being familiar with Kasich, he sounded impressive in the interview.

    He made his case for taking the Obamacare(Medicaid?) money (that it belonged to the state anyway) and mentioned that they did not set up a state exchange.

    Maybe it’s just one of those politician things that sound good because I don’t know all the details?

    I don’t know squat about Kasich’s record, but he comes off as a very unpleasant and humorless person.
