The Only 100 Days

If you read between the lines, I've been a bit hard on Gov. Kasich. The local newspaper, of course, is as excited as can be. They've got a team of reporters following him around New Hampshire and nothing could be better than Columbus playing San Clemente. All week they've been prepping Kasich's big speech and his "first 100 days."

I have to say it isn't entirely terrible, what he proposes. The main problem is he's not real. It would have been nice if he'd done this sort of thing from the beginning of his governorship and stuck to it. He's got capacity flowing out of every orifice. But he found it more expedient to accept that free Obamacare money (et tu, DG?) and then, literally the next day, fly out to New Hampshire to give his balanced budget speech. To do so, he gamed the state process for approving programs, AND attributed it all to his Christian duty. (Local politicos joke about Kasich: "A good quarterback says to his team, 'C'mon guys, let's block and execute and we'll get that ball in the end zone'. John Kasich says to his team, 'If you assholes would get out of my way I could score'.")

So, sorry to see you are as bad at recognizing opportunity as Ken Blackwell, John (not to mention the entire Ohio Republican Party, whose solitary capacity is beating Ohio Democrats whose only brain is at the Consumer Finance Protection Racket), but it's been time for you to go since before you started.
