So you think that perhaps John Kasich is the reasonable GOP presidential candidate? Think again.

Seriously, what part of "I'm a Republican" do you not understand?
Courtesy of NBC 4: 

Gov. John Kasich signed legislation Sunday to strip government money from PlannedParenthood in Ohio, a day after the Republican presidential contender’s weak performance in his party’s South Carolina primary. 

The expected action came despite calls for a veto by some legislative Democrats and several newspaper editorials. 

The governor did not sign the bill in public. His office made the announcement in a statement.

Just a reminder that there are NO reasonable Republicans running for office in 2016. 

And if you think there are, well then you are an idiot.

  1. Kasich's belief that he knows the mind of the Magic Sky Fairy appears to be every bit as strong as that of the other Republican candidates.

    When will the national media look into the charter school scandal in Ohio? His campaign manager's husband changed the grades for online schools to cheat the government (meaning you and me, the taxpayers) out of more money to enrich Kasich's biggest donors?

    I so agree with you, IM!!!

    Americans need to vote Republicans out of office (if up for reelection) wherever and whenever possible in the upcoming elections...nationally (U.S. Congress), state and local areas throughout the country.

      I want to know what the reasoning is behind banning straight ticket ballots in order to steal elections.

      In Mich, our governor, the businessman nerd King Rick, banned straight ticket voting.

      Mi went for Obama two years in a row, however many local republicans were voted in, therefore people had to split their ballot.

      Seems to me the republicans would have had a better chance with straight ticket.

      that being said, if King Rick banned straight ticket ballots, there has to be some devious thinking behind it.

    When asked who first comes to mind in a Kasich administration, he replied "Chris Christie". Probably attorney general.

    There is NO defending what republicans have become today. Any and all republicans are repulsive to me.

      thehill Kasich would consider Christie for a cabinet appointment

      When asked during the CNN town hall on Thursday night in South Carolina if he'd consider selecting another candidate for his Cabinet, Kasich said he and Christie are "buddies."

      "I like Chris Christie a whole lot," he said. "He’s somebody that was a candidate that would be considered.”

      Kasich did not mention any of the other candidates by name

    Kasich was this year's Jon Huntsman. Remember him? The "nice" Republican candidate in 2012? It was all illusion. Huntsman knew how to sound reasonable. But he was still the extreme right-winger they all were. Just like Kasich is. Kasich never fooled me for an instant. I'm too familiar with his record in Ohio. It's only his record that counts.

      Sorry, 7:16, but I must respectfully disagree. They hate the IDEA of women having any sort of independence. They don't want them to have any RIGHTS. The don't want them to have the vote. They don't want them to work except in the home. They don't want them to have control over their bodies.

      On the other hand, they LOVE the sex they think they can demand! UNPROTECTED sex, at that.

      So they don't HATE women per se.

      Oh please Leland. Republicans hate women. Period. Loving sex makes them just hate women more. BECAUSE they (the straight ones anyway) have to demand it from women, meaning, they are still liable to be turned down.

    http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/john-kasich-ohio-bill-down-syndrome Kasich Pledges To Sign Bill Banning Abortions In Cases Of Down Syndrome (but no mention of the social security disability that US taxpayers pay to DS people from day 1, a whole life of free disability payments, equal approximately to the average monthly SS payment of people who have worked & paid in, for their whole lives. (I am not opposed to this entitlement, just that IMO people should have choice in terms of procreation and the lives they prefer to lead, the chances they prefer to take.) It's so absurd, we see people who do make use of the DS subsidy preaching to others about THEIR entitlements and subsidies.

    Half of Ohio's abortion clinics have closed down since Kasich came in to wreak havoc on the lives of women. “Over the last four years Mr Kasich has introduced 16 new restrictions on abortion in Ohio,” laments Kellie Copeland http://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2015/08/down-syndrome

    Kasich is just the mirror image of a religious telemarketer. Bad for women, bad for America, but it looks like his butt is going to lose. But all of this has to get out. He is not even a moderate and his speaking style is so phony that it's incredible.

    ...If any American thinks these religious maniacs serving in positions of government power, and violating the Constitution, are confined to the deep South bible belt they are sadly mistaken. These fanatics are in every state and every community and they have no intent to stop until they control every aspect of society as their Christian reconstruction and Dominionist Theology mission demands. And, like religious right extremists attacking women’s rights, the gay community, and the secular Constitution they enjoy the full political support of religious Republicans and financial support from the Koch brothers.

    All the while, Democrats and liberals continue giving the theocrats a wide berth no matter the damage the religious fanatics are wreaking on society and especially on public schools. For now though, there is one public school district in California that is safe from theocrats thanks to the Freedom From Religion Foundation and concerned parents who prevailed with absolutely no assistance whatsoever from even one “Constitution-loving” politician.

    I live in Kansas and am a DEM registered as REPUB. We have been taken over by the ultra conservatives and the state is truly broken. There are very few moderate REPUBS and voting in the DEM primary/caucus usually only has one candidate for the office. There doesn't seem to be anyway to get these bible thumping haters out of office. We had a good DEM candidate for Gov and Brownback was still re-elected. Dumb shits just can't tell when they continually step in it over and over.

    Closed primaries equal closed minds. Kobach is so worried about voter fraud here when the deck is totally stacked REPUB.

    Good luck with that buddy. All the hugs in the world aren't going to help you out now.

    However...PLEASE stay in the race...the longer you stay in, the more fractured the party will be and the more likely that Trump (the guy your establishment hates with a passion) will end up being your nominee.

    I just saw a clip of a Kasich event. He said he has had women fighting for his campaigns since "they came out of their kitchens in 1978". A woman who got the microphone said, "I'm coming out to fight for you, but it won't be out of a kitchen". He doesn't see the sexism of his remark at all.

  30. If I recall correctly I didn't say Kasich was reasonable.

    I did say that during the part of the debate I witnessed he was the only adult in the room. That isn't saying much. If he were the most reasonable of all of the clowns on the stage, that only means he is the most reasonable of a bad lot. Not that he's reasonable in general terms.

    They're ALL awful.

    Even Bernie can beat this lot.
