Dear John Kasich, please stop talking

Was this clown ever an actual Conservative? 

Gov. John Kasich is sounding off on the lack of movement on gun regulations that he’d proposed earlier this year, commenting on it in two separate public events.

Kasich talked mostly foreign policy and the NATO summit at the National Press Club in Washington, but he did note his frustration about a package of gun law changesthat he hoped Republican state lawmakers back home would take up. “I have a legislature that refuses to consider common sense gun bills,” Kasich said.

The day before at the Columbus Metropolitan Club he brought up one part of his proposal, a so-called red flag law to allow law enforcement to seize weapons from people considered to be dangerous. “I cannot pass that through this legislature,” Kasich said.

Rep. Michael Henne is the sole sponsor of the bill, which has had four hearings but is facing strident opposition from gun rights groups. Kasich has also said he wouldn’t sign a so-called “stand your ground” bill that many Republican lawmakers support.

Ah, “Common Sense Gun Laws” Sure Governor, sure. Common sense as described by those seeking to take as many guns away from the law abiding as possible?

Why Did Sheriff David Clarke Call John Kasich A ‘Rat Bastard’? (Videos)

Why Did Sheriff Clarke Call John Kasich A ‘Rat Bastard?’ – Politistick

Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich tries to sell himself to the American people as “the adult in the room” and as level-headed.

But, video has surfaced of Kasich being anything but reasonable, rational, and adult-like. In fact, it shows him flat-out lying about and denigrating the character of a police officer while speaking at an EPA meeting.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, known as “The People’s Sheriff” happened upon a video that not only shows Kasich insulting a police officer as “an idiot,” it also shows that he flat out lied about what happened that day when he was pulled over in Columbus, Ohio for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. (video below)

The stop occurred in 2008, before Kasich was elected governor of the state. Video footage clearly shows other cars following the law by slowing down and getting over into the other lane, but Kasich continues driving at normal speed and doesn’t even attempt to get over.

The officer in question, Officer Robert Barrett, pulled over the former congressman and interacted with him with the utmost respect. Barrett was polite as he explained the violation and as he told Kasich that he would have a mandatory court appearance as required by law.

When Kasich told the officer he didn’t see the police car that he passed improperly, that was pulled over on the side with its lights on, the officer responded, “It happens to everyone on occasion, sir. You kind of have to watch out.” The officer reassured Kasich that it was not that big of a deal, but according to Ohio law he would have to appear in court.

Ten days later, while speaking in front of Ohio EPA workers, John Kasich tells a much different story, making the officer a villain and calling him an idiot numerous times.
.

Have you ever been stopped by a policeman, who was an idiot?” he asked his audience. “I had this idiot pull me over on 315. Listen to this story. He says to me, you passed this emergency vehicle on the side of the road and you didn’t yield. I didn’t even see, where the heck was it. The last thing I would ever do would be to pass an emergency vehicle. Are you kidding me?”

Kasich continued, the policeman, “tells me if you don’t report to court, we are putting a warrant out for your arrest. He’s an idiot! We just can’t act that way, and what people resent is people who are in the government, who don’t treat the client with respect.”

.
This unwarranted attack on the character, intelligence, and professionalism of a police officer did not sit too well with Sheriff Clarke. On Wednesday, he tweeted exactly how he felt about what John Kasich did back in 2008.

@SheriffClarke

Someone @FoxNews or @FoxBusiness ask Gov Kasich in next interv why he lied about his mistreatment of an Ohio cop and called him an idiot.

12:14 AM – 17 Mar 2016

Will they take him up on this challenge or keep Kasich’s treatment of a police officer who was just doing his job hidden?

While Kasich did eventually apologize, the apology came only after the video surfaced during his first term as governor and it went viral. The apology was done in a cowardly fashion, behind closed doors.

Marco Rubio Encourages Voters To Back John Kasich In Ohio

Rubio Urges Voters To Back Kasich In Ohio To Stop Trump – Politico

.

.
Marco Rubio, desperate to save his presidential campaign in his home state, is adopting the Mitt Romney strategy – asking Republicans hoping to stop Donald Trump to support his rival, John Kasich, in Ohio.

“John Kasich is the only one who can beat Donald Trump in Ohio,” Rubio said. “If a voter in Ohio is motivated by stopping Donald Trump, I suspect that’s the only choice they can make.”

The flip-side of that strategic gambit is to convince any voters in Florida not backing Trump to support him in Tuesday’s primary.

“I’m the only one who can beat Trump in Florida,” Rubio said during a press conference Friday morning at Temple Beth El.

“A vote for Ted Cruz or John Kasich in Florida is a vote for Donald Trump. Any vote that doesn’t go to me is helping Donald Trump win the 99 delegates that this state will award to the winner.”

Rubio denied any quid pro quo with Kasich. “I have not talked with John Kasich,” he said.

And Kasich’s campaign, confident of its position, showed no interest in returning the favor.

“We were going to win in Ohio without his help, just as he’s going to lose in Florida without ours,” said Kasich campaign spokesman Rob Nichols.

But Kasich’s camp wasted little time capitalizing. Chief strategist John Weaver quickly fired off a fundraising email touting Rubio’s support as evidence that Republicans are consolidating around Kasich.

Last week, Romney, the GOP’s 2012 nominee, suggested that Republicans band together to stop Trump from winning the 1,237 delegates necessary to secure the party’s nomination outright, floating the idea that Rubio and Kasich should urge each other’s supporters to back the other in their critical, home-state contests.

The three remaining GOP contenders vying to stop Trump also met Wednesday and Thursday with Jeb Bush in Miami.

“We welcome the support of the Rubio campaign,” said Trent Duffy, another Kasich spokesman, who called any attempt to tell voters what to do “presumptuous.”

“Voters don’t want to be told what to do. We are not going to be presumptuous to instruct our voters how they should vote,” he continued. “The voters should vote their conscience. They should vote for the best person they think is best able to lead our country. We believe that man is John Kasich… everywhere across the country.”

Ted Cruz, who has added campaign stops in Florida this week in an effort to help Trump deliver the deathblow to Rubio, scoffed at the broader strategy – or Rubio’s “games,” as he put it.

“It’s real simple,” Cruz told reporters in Orlando, where he campaigned Friday morning before flying to Missouri. “How do you beat Donald Trump? You beat him.”

Cruz’s campaign, however, has pulled its television ads that were scheduled to run over the weekend here, signaling a recognition that the money might be better spent elsewhere.

While Rubio and his campaign denied any strategic shift Friday, the senator’s comments came less than an hour after his spokesman went on CNN and put forth the same argument, acknowledging that only Kasich can defeat Trump in Ohio, which awards all of its 66 delegates to the winner.

“If you are a Republican primary voter in Ohio and you want to defeat Donald Trump, your best chance in Ohio is John Kasich,” the spokesman, Alex Conant, said.

“The same is true here in Florida,” he continued, emphasizing that Rubio is best positioned to beat the real-estate mogul in the state’s primary Tuesday for its 99 delegates, also all awarded to the outright winner.

“If you’re a voter and Marco Rubio is not necessarily your first choice – if you like John Kasich or you like Ted Cruz and you’re here in Florida, you need to vote for Marco Rubio because he’s the only one who can deprive Donald Trump of those 99 delegates,” he said. “And if we stop Donald Trump here in Florida, we can stop him in Cleveland. He will not be the Republican nominee.”

A recent poll shows Kasich with a narrow lead over Trump in Ohio, while a series of Florida surveys show Rubio trailing the business magnate, although by different margins.

“Unfortunately, we’ve gotta do whatever it takes to stop Donald Trump from winning Ohio and stop his march to the nomination,” said Jason Roe, a Rubio adviser.

After an event designed to highlight Rubio’s support for Israel, Rubio shrugged off questions about polls and his long-term political future.

“I’m not concerned about polls,” Rubio said. “Voters in this election have shown a propensity to change their mind and to do that quickly. We’re very confident about what’s going to happen in Florida.”
