    At Statewide Forums, Fitzgerald Debates an Absent Kasich
    October 9, 2014 4:54 pm – Jesse Bethea

    The table in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers hall on Second Avenue had nameplates for both Ed FitzGerald and John Kasich Wednesday night. The left side seats were reserved for FitzGerald’s supporters, the right side designated for Kasich’s. The Governor’s spot at the dais remained unoccupied through the evening and Democrats spilled over into his empty fan section.

    Don’t forget that the Green Party has a respectable candidate on the ballot and she is planning to debate Fitzgerald. Progressives can still vote for someone other than Kasich and at least make a statement on the state of the two-party system in Ohio.

    I’m planning on voting Green this year. I won’t say I agree with their whole platform and emphasis, but they’re closer to my positions than the major parties, and Fitzgerald has failed to convince me he has even minimal competence.

    I also don’t appreciate that his campaign is continuing to solicit donations even after he started giving away his funds to other candidates.

    As far as Kasich, maybe he’ll resign to run for President. As long as he doesn’t actually win, that’s the best case scenario I see in this situation.

    Kasich winning reelection is a bad deal all around. At the very least, we are now stuck with this neoliberal tool for another 4 years, along with all kinds of associated retrograde ideals on steroids that only an authoritarian Baby Boomer who happily grew up in the 1950s could love. It seems we have a lot of these people currently in our media organizations around the state, and they are just fawning over this guy and his lame-ass presidential ambitions like he’s some kind of rock star.

    John Kasich is the Kim Kardashian of Ohio politics. Nobody knows how he got to where he is or what he actually does that is of value to anyone, but he has his fans, and they can’t seem to get enough of him regardless.

    Let’s say Kasich does resign to run for President or VP in 2016. Mary Taylor takes over. Like Taylor, I’m from Summit County. I know our politics there, and so I who she really answers to. Look up Alex Arshinkoff. You really don’t want him as Governor. That’s not a typo.

    Agreed, but I don’t see any realistic scenario where that doesn’t happen at this point.

    “Neoliberal?”

    Yes indeed. Political party is mostly irrelevant. The Bushes and Clintons are neoliberals. So is Obama. And Mitt Romney for that matter.
