Redstate followers this morning and it's not going well.

While I don't want to direct any traffic that way, I find it incredible that a sitting Governor is using a right wing blog to post some pathetic plea for understanding of his policy decisions. It only makes it worse that the handful of people reading and commenting are giving him hell.

On a front page post " Protecting the Ohio Model"

Obamacare is not the path any of us would have chosen, but it’s the path we find ourselves on so we better do everything we can to contain its impact until we can take back the White House and fix it.

I said no to a state exchange in Ohio for just that reason—to limit Obamacare’s impact.  I said no to Obamacare’s takeover of our state’s insurance regulations and no to Obamacare’s takeover of our Medicaid eligibility system as well...
Now I’ve proposed extending Medicaid health coverage to low-income and working poor Ohioans, in part, to limit further damage from Obamacare.

Anyway, the Redstaters are having none of it...
Sorry, Governor. Not buying it one bit. You didn't think outside the box; you thought like a big government liberal. It's Republicans like you who give the GOP a bad name,..
...despite the Kasich's remarkable conservative credentials:
When I chaired the U.S. House of Representatives’ Budget Committee I led the effort to balance the federal budget for the first time since men walked on the moon.  I left Washington in 1999 and the federal budget has never been balanced since.
Come on, that's almost superhuman

I know it's wrong to take pleasure in anothers' misfortune, but Wingnuts eating their own, it's for the greater good.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
