Kasich’s bid for presidency revisited

On May 30, 2015, I went out on a limb and probably surprised a few readers when I posted, “Kasich for president in 2016.”

While channel surfing Sunday, looking for the golf tournament, I came across  CBS’s Face the Nation with its new host John Dickerson interviewing Ohio Governor John Kasich.  For those of you who are still not familiar with what Kasich stands for, I invite you to click here and watch the interview.

I believe Kasich was forthright as he answered the far right critics who dislike his belief that conservatives have a moral responsibility to deal with the mentally ill and those in poverty.  He did so while pointing out that Ohio has added some 350,000 jobs and has a $2 billion surplus.

I understand Kasich plans to formally enter the presidential race on July 21.
