Case for Kasich

True. He is a long shot. First hurdle. His name. Kasick. Not the way it’s spelled. John Kasich is the current second-term Governor of Ohio, with a successful record. Unlike Christie. Bush was one long ago. Executive experience is a plus. Kasich is a fiscal and social common sense moderate. Many in New Hampshire are choosing between him and Hillary. He is authentic and likes people. You can see the connection in Town Halls.  As an alum of the U.S. Congress and a banker, he has a myriad of experience. God-fearing. Yes. Compassionate. Not evangelical. Seems to understand the church/state divide. Has integrity. Will he do well in today’s first primary? Don’t know. If so. Onward.

If not, we risk a Bush-Clinton re-run show. No!!!!!

Semi-Sweet Sixteen

John Kasich of Ohio is the last one to announce GOP Presidential candidacy. Fiorina. Cruz. Paul. Santorum. Pataki. Christie. Carson. Walker. Trump. Bush. Rubio. Jindal. Perry. Graham. Huckabee. Oy. I think he’s the best of the lot. Actually believes what he says. He is a can do kind of guy. Pragmatic. Private and public sector experience. Worked at Lehman Brothers.  Governor. U.S. Congressman. Armed Services Committee. Budget Committee. Upbeat vision. Reasonable values. Has a heart. God-fearing. Not God-preaching. Yup. He’s my fave for now. Huntsman team. No Neo-Cons. Truman-esque.

Is 16th the charm? Hope not too late to the party. Ohio. Ohio. Ohio.
