  •  Kasich will run on what he always runs on (0+ / 0-)

    fiscal 'responsibility' and cutting taxes. He has already said so. Where have you been?

    We already have "death panels". They are called health insurance companies.

    •  He's been here bashing Strickland nonstop n/t (0+ / 0-)
      •  Gee and it looks like Ohio voters agree with me (0+ / 0-)

        or am I so influential that I caused Strickland's nose-dive in the polls?

        Yes, I predicted this more than a year ago. No need to thank me.

        •  No, they are pissed about the economy (1+ / 0-)

          You've been bashing him since last year and probably before that. Back when he had a 60% approval rating. Remember?

          •  I certainly remember (0+ / 0-)

            He's angry because Strickland hasn't been perfect on a pet issue of his, so he's convinced everyone hates Strickland and Strickland will lose. People ARE upset about the economy — which won't help Portman since he's telling people it's going great — and they are upset about cuts to state programs, which Kasich's only campaign platform is going to make infinitely worse — a point Strickland is already hammering.

          •  Yeah when it was totally predictable (0+ / 0-)

            that his numbers were about to nose-dive, which YOU folks said would not happen.  YOU folks said we should support the lying kingpin because he is "popular."

            Remember?

            Well he ain't so popular any more. Ohioans now know who this man is.

            •  I never said that (1+ / 0-)

              I'm from Florida, the only thing I know about Strickland is that you've been bashing him since I've joined this site. Oh and telling us how Kasich is the bomb. Why don't you take your anti-Strickland diaries to Redstate. I'm sure they would enjoy them.

        •  But you are wrong (0+ / 0-)

          Why should anyone thank you for projecting your irrational hatred onto others?

          •  Um, a 54% disapproval rating (0+ / 0-)

            means a solid majority of Ohioans know that this governor is a lyin' corrupt lame duck.

            It's extraordinarily rational to want him out of office.

            •  What poll are you even refering to? (0+ / 0-)

              And do other polls agree with it, or are you cherrypicking? He isn't corrupt — there isn't even a HINT of corruption. Even Kasich isn't claiming that. And I'm sorry how disappointed you're going to be about the "lame duck' thing not coming true. You really should consider that move to Kentucky. It's not that far from you.

    •  It's frickin January (0+ / 0-)

      and you wishful thinkers think you can peg Kasich to a position.

      He's a smart guy. If he needs to adapt his position, that's exactly what he will do.

      How many times has Strickland done a 180 on the state budget just in the past 9 months?  Hmmmmm?   Don't you think that will be thrown in Boss Ted's face?

    •  Yes, he has. (0+ / 0-)

      You are exactly right, Ohiolibrarian. Kasich has made manifestly clear the whole of his platform. Actually, he's NOT claiming "fiscal responsibility." He's refusing to say how he will balance the budget with 40% of state revenue gone up in smoke.

    •  im not going to argue but when is a goper (0+ / 0-)

      fiscally responsible, and i said that in an earlier comment.
      Yeah, lower income taxes lower spending....

      •  Oh no, he's a 'true believer' in (0+ / 0-)

        fiscal responsibility; he'll try to implement it. Unfortunately (for us) that would cause our state to completely crash and burn.
