You may not know this but the GOP presidential primary is NOT a two-man race. Nope. There are actually three men still competing to become the GOP presidential nominee in November: Donald Trump, Senator [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX), and Governor John Kasich (R-OH). While Trump and Cruz have won the vast majority of the delegates, as well as the vast majority of the states, Governor Kasich continues to hang on to the insane hope that he might win the nomination. However, according to the current GOP nomination rules, Kasich has already been disqualified from that possibility. So why is he still hanging around? Daniel Horowitz at Director Blue has some ideas and they all center around the fact that no one has bothered to unmask Kasich’s true record… yet.
In a scathing indictment of Kasich’s liberal politics, Horowitz expertly outlines the case against nominating John Kasich to the presidency. Calling him “Hillary in a Suit” Horowitz explains the “top 17 times” Governor Kasich proved he was a liberal.
- Obamacare: In 2013, Kasich ordered fellow state Republicans who enjoyed strong majorities in both houses of the Ohio legislature to implement Medicaid expansion. When they balked and defunded Medicaid expansion, Kasich pulled an Obama-style move and implemented his signature legislation via executive action. But don’t remind him that he campaigned in 2010 against Medicaid expansion, predicting that it would “stick states with large and unsustainable costs.” His original premonition was correct, as Ohio became the most Medicaid dependent state in the Midwest, with over 25 percent of the population on the federal program. Kasich’s projected Medicaid enrollment was 447,000 residents; the real number is 661,725and his Obamacare expansion is projected to cost 27.5 billion by June 2020. Last cycle, Republicans nominated the one man to concoct Obamacare before Obama did. This time, we have a spoiler running who harnessed Obama’s tactics to expand Obamacare in a GOP-controlled state.
- Religious Liberty: Earlier this week, in response to state laws protecting the religious liberty of private business owners, Kasich had this to say: “I read about this thing they did in Mississippi where apparently you can deny somebody service because they’re gay. What the hell are we doing in this country?” He went on and added this gem: “I may not appreciate a certain lifestyle or even approve of it, but I can — but that doesn’t mean I gotta go write a law and figure out how to have another wedge issue. We have a Supreme Court ruling, and you know what, let’s move on.” [CNN]
- Males Are Females Too:&nbnbsp; For women who don’t want men in their bathrooms, Kasich had thisto say: “Everybody chill out. Get over it if you have a disagreement with somebody.”
- Amnesty: Even as criminal illegal aliens continue to wreak havoc on our communities, including in cities in Ohio, Kasich referredto deportations as inhumane and said he didn’t want to “see anybody in pain.” Evidently, that sense of compassion didn’t extend to his legal constituents.
And there are many more, like Kasich’s opposition to the 2nd Amendment, his call to accept MORE Muslim refugees, his defense of Obama’s liberal Supreme Court choices, his love of subsidizing green energy, his affinity for global warming alarmism, his avid support of the Common Core, and more!
The facts are clear. The evidence is mounting. Only one conclusion exists. John Kasich has no place in this primary and there is absolutely no reason he should be in consideration to be the next President of the United States.
