John Kasich is the perfect example of Republican in name only. He's essentially McCain after Obama humbled him in 2008 and turned him into the Democrat brownnoser we have today.
No one in their right mind would go back to the well with that old fool, which makes Kasich's decision to remain in the race nothing more than desperate attempt to achieve delusions of grandeur.
Glenn Beck was right to call Kasich a delusional “son of a bitch”.
It was on Sunday that the pro-amnesty candidate suggested that Texas Senator Ted Cruz drop out of the race. Despite the fact that Cruz still has a chance to win the nomination and Kasich's only shot is through a convention. It's downright laughable.
Saying that he's playing for a convention is no different than a hockey team playing for a shootout because they can't win in regulation. It's a sad thing to behold.
This comes on top of the fact that Kasich refused to debate Cruz one-on-one after frontrunner Donald Trump decided to skip the latest Fox debate. His reasoning? This Sunday on Fox News he said he'd rather have a debate featuring every candidate remaining in the race.
That reasoning didn't stop him from attending the January 26 debate that Donald Trump refused to attend because of his ongoing feud with Fox host and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
Basically, the man is a complete hypocrite who would be masterfully dissected by Cruz should they debate one-on-one. It wouldn't even be close.
In that same Fox interview, Kasich promoted amnesty for illegal immigrants and refused to call them criminals.
Chris Wallace asked Kasich, “But what about...the argument they did break the law, they came into this country illegally. And - and you're letting them basically be able to stay in the country despite that.”
“Chris, Chris, I know that you don't believe that we can go house-to-house and block-to-block trying to track these people down to ship them out. You know that. Come on. The people know it, too,” S-tier RINO Kasich responded.
The bottom line is that for any anti-Trump Conservative, having Kasich remain in the race allows votes to be taken from Ted Cruz and allows Trump to go right up the middle.
Even ultimate loser extraordinaire Mitt Romney can figure this out.
“A vote for Governor Kasich in future contests makes it extremely likely that Trumpism would prevail,” Romney said on Facebook.
While it's certainly possible that this could come down to a convention, Kasich has no business wandering into Cleveland with a grin on his face. The man won ONE state – his own. That's not special. And somehow this has fueled his desire to keep running despite practically being lapped by his opponents.
As a friend of mine said, Kasich has a better shot at being Hillary Clinton's running mate than he does of being president. It's definitely possible considering what kind of man he is.
Republican voters won't rally behind Kasich. Republican voters won't support Kasich. And Republican voters shouldn't cheer Kasich until he goes quietly into the night.
RINOs like John Kasich would be better off never entering politics to begin with. And more importantly, so would Americans.
I'll leave you with this fairly amusing statistic.
John Kasich has just over 200,000 Facebook likes. Ted Cruz has 2M and Donald Trump has 6M. Those are substantial differences. And they spell out one thing.
Kasich, people just don't like you.
