I have a longer video and post coming but wanted to post this quick take from two people I spoke with today: Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine and Congressman Pat Tiberi. Perhaps not surprisingly, they both think it means good | Read More »
John Kasich: Tea Parties Are About Genuine Concerns, Not Anger
From the diaries by Erick. Ohio’s John Kasich appears to present a pretty accurate view of what the Tea Parties are actually all about in my opinion. Clue: It ain’t about anger folks. It’s about genuine concerns over the direction the country seems to be headed right now. In this state, our fellow Ohioans have shown up at these events not because they’re angry, but because they care about | Read More »
You trust government to do what?
Update: Added YouTube instead. Funny and frightening Hannity clip about how President Obama plans to cut a tiny sliver of government spending. Bonus John Kasich appearance. I think the quip about the government some people want to run health care just discovered paper has two sides should make you laugh and then cry.
PPP: Strickland/Kasich within margin of error.
Not that they noted that, really. But there’s still been some erosion of Strickland’s support in the last several months, whether PPP’s explicit about it or not: 43% of Ohio voters approve of how Strickland is doing his job as Governor, while 42% disapprove. A January PPP survey found the numbers at 48/35. Strickland’s approval among Democrats has dropped from 70% to 62%, an unusually | Read More »

Ohio Democrats must be worried
Because they are really ratcheting up the lame attacks on John Kasich. First, they offered this lame website making the accusation that Kasich’s job at Lehman Brothers somehow makes him responsible for the firms collapse, the housing bubble, and the general economic crisis. I thought Kasich handled that one best: “Blaming me for Lehman Brothers is like blaming a car dealer in Zanesville for the | Read More »

Great moments in Democratic responsibility.
Harry S Truman (President of the United States) – his motto: “The Buck Stops Here!” John F Kennedy (Author of Profiles in Courage, President of the United States) – regarding the Bay of Pigs fiasco: “President Kennedy has stated from the beginning that as President he bears sole responsibility for the events of the past few days.

John Kasich: Righting The Ship
Fox reports that John Kasich aims to “right the ship” as the next Ohio Governor. That item here – with a video of a recent TV interview below. I like Kasich for several reasons. He was a genuine foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution, unlike some who claim the mantle without the resume to back it up. Riding Reagan’s coat-tails was one thing. Understanding the Reagan | Read More »
John Kasich seeks to Recharge Ohio
Yesterday I was able to attend John Kasich’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign announcement and rally. And I have to say that, while everyone knows it is a tough road ahead, he started things off very well last night. Ohio seems poised to shake off the ugliness of the past few years with a number of candidates who can excite the grassroots and bring the GOP coalition | Read More »

It’s Never Too Early To Target A Republican
You have to give credit to old media. While an Obama appointee who failed to pay his taxes, even after having been reimbursed for the money by his international employer, is dismissed as only a speedbump for an incoming Democratic administration – speculation that an otherwise successful Republican pol, media personality and businessperson may want to run for Governor of Ohio in 2010 is enough to start drawing misdirected fire his | Read More »
A Very Good Introduction Video for John Kasich
I found a great introduction video for John Kasich as a professional speaker that only had 107 views, so I thought I would share it on Redstate.I don’t think there’s a better way to introduce John Kasich as a possible Vice Presidential candidate than this video.
