I called this one, way back when Kasich refused to drop out of the primary.
I said, he’s gonna attack Trump and then become a Democrat.
Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday that a time could come when he no longer supports the Republican Party.
“If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party. Period. That’s the end of it.” Kasich said in an interview with anchor Jake Tapper.
Asked what that meant for his future in the GOP, Kasich said he was committed to the party and intended to win it over from the surging nationalist wing.
“I want this party to be straightened out,” Kasich said.
Kasich repeatedly pointed to public dissatisfaction with the Republican and Democratic parties, and referenced the strength of independent political identities. He said both parties needed to grapple with ideological currents pulling them away from the center, adding that he had “no idea what the Democrats are for.”
“What I’m trying to do is struggle for the soul of the Republican Party the way that I see it,” Kasich said. “And I have a right to define it, but I’m not going to support people who are dividers.”
Kasich made clear he did not support former Judge Roy Moore, the far-right Republican nominee for Alabama’s Senate seat with a history of incendiary comments on race, sexuality and religion. As for whether the Republican Party should continue to support Moore in the December special election, Kasich demurred and returned to his broader desire to reshape the party.
“I don’t run the party,” Kasich said. “I can tell you, for me, I don’t support that. I couldn’t vote for that.”
I have to say, as a person who doesn’t make hard predictions very often, the overwhelming majority of my hard predictions are correct.
This was sort of an obvious one, but I never saw anyone else saying it.
Let me just go ahead and pat myself on the back for a few minutes.
I wish I could give myself a back massage.
I’ve been at the computer virtually nonstop for six weeks.
I will tell you this.
I will just tell you one thing:
Every minute that I have off the computer, I’m on the prowl in Westerville.
And I will add this:
John Kasich is going to be shocked as fuck when his two teenage daughters tell them their bringing their boyfriend to dinner – what a coincidence, they’re both dating guys from Worthington, he’ll think.
And then he opens the door and it turns out they’re both dating the same guy from Worthington:
He’s gonna be looking at me while he’s eating and I’m gonna be looking at him like:
Relax, John. We’ve all seen you eat before.
Your daughters are sixes, John. Even the blonde one.
But I will date them, as revenge.
When I roll up to their table at the coffee shop they’re gonna be like “ZOMG are you that guy from the internet who is a Nazi and hates our dad and rated us sixes on your website???? THAT. IS. SO. HAWT.”
You never should have fucked with me and my state, John Kasich.
You disgraced our flag/pennant.
And revenge is a dish best served polygamous.
