For a great riff on Kasich’s announcement see Larry Wilmore’s segment on The Nightly Show. Per usual with Kasich, there is little need for a comedian’s embellishment to highlight Kasich’s reliably clueless hilarity.July 23, 2015 1:30 pm at 1:30 pm #1086187July 23, 2015 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1086263

Still whining about that? This was a bad idea for a state that was in the financial trouble we were in BEFORE Kasich was elected.
And, of course, there’s the minor matter of cost. On that, it’s easy to conclude that no one in a position of authority has a clue how much it will really take to get the system up and running.
Last June 9, the state estimated an initial cost of $250 million, with a $10 million annual subsidy. By Sept. 15, the startup cost had swelled to $343 million, with a $17 million annual subsidy. A mere 16 days later, the price tag was $564 million. But by Jan. 28, when the Obama administration offered Ohio $400 million, state officials insisted that would be enough to do the job.July 24, 2015 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #1086342

With Kasich On Campaign Trail, Who’s Governing Ohio?
By KAREN KASLER – OHIO PUBLIC RADIO • SEP 10, 2015
Running for president is a marathon of rallies, town halls, and speeches, and it means a lot of time away from home. For Governor Kasich, that means a lot of time away from the governor’s office, and that has some wondering who’s leading the state during his campaign.

Still whining about that?
Yes. Everything else I’ve forgiven and forgotten, but every time I can’t take a train from here to anywhere else, I shake my fist and curse Kasich’s name.October 27, 2015 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #1099278

I told my wife after the first Republican Debate, Kasich is the most likely one to actually get the nomination if he can stay in the race. You can say he did this and that in the state for better or worse but up on that stage with the nutbags doing a god off, he does look like the sanest option.
Not that I would vote for him but the rest seem to have the Palin “crazy eyes” and won’t last.October 27, 2015 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm #1099279
Doubtful. The GOP establishment seems to be moving more towards Marco Rubio at the moment, if Jeb can’t pull up out of his tailspin. Kasich is too gaffe-prone and comes off as a crass and abrasive jerk, but without the charisma that George W. Bush had, or even what Donald Trump has, to play off his flubs and fuck-ups with the party base.
I think his campaign ultimately goes nowhere and that we’ll be stuck with him until January 2019. Ohioans who drink all the cool-aid about us being the bell-wether state and all the “Ohio against the World” crap will be scratching their heads wondering why his campaign fizzled out. The other 49 states won’t even shrug.October 28, 2015 12:15 am at 12:15 am #1099297
