As far as Kasich goes, he's a Wall Street Shill playing a shell game with Ohio's Budget, and we'll all pay for it in the end.

The Republican leader and GOP-controlled legislature approved a budget that slashed local-government aid by 34 percent and cut a pot of their funding from utility taxes nearly in half. The same budget in 2013 will take away an estate tax that funnels 80 percent of its revenue to local governments.

Many mayors accused the governor of a calculated move to save his own political hide by swearing off raising taxes at the state level but in turn squeezing local governments and public schools so much that they have to raise taxes at their level.

A Shell Game, and you fools are too stupid to realize it. Now he's going to take your local city taxes, and administer them, keeping a much bigger portion than we're losing now for overseeing our locally collected taxes.

The only people doing good under Kasich are his Wall Street buddies getting rich on our di

Here comes the Fact lady spreading sunshine again:

President Bush spent 32% of his presidency on vacation. Bush passed Reagan in total vacation days in 2005 with three and a half years left in his presidency. Reagan spent all or part of 335 days in Santa Barbara over his 8 year presidency. Bush spent 487 days at Camp David during his presidency and 490 days at his Crawford, Texas ranch, a total of 977 days. When you add the days President Bush spent at Kennebunkport, Maine, he spent a total of 1,020 days away from the White House — close to 3 years. At 1,020 days, Bush was close to being on vacation more days than President John F. Kennedy’s total days in office (1,036). President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Tex

Bush wasted more taxpayor money on AF1 than any other president in history. President Obama's costs aren't even close.

Let's see the figures for Obama's useless trips vs. Kasich. Not even close. Obama should buy AF1 for as much as he travels on it.....at OUR expense. That's why we can't take vacations. He's using OUR money.

zENTH: Obama's wife ordered her own big AF Jet for her and kids-cost to run this was 130,00 extra dollars, obama took AF ONE then took it back to DC--Then took it again last night back to hawaii--It was a 1.8 million charge to gov't--He also took Valerie Jarrett with him on the 10 hour flight.

Actually he did, to resume his vacation. He had to cut the original short due to some arrogant and ignorant politicians not willing to work out a plan. If it were me, I would just start the vacation all over again .......

I would hate to lose him. As a Governor, he has taken care of business. he pi ssed a few people off along the way.. He didn't run away from issues and he balanced our budget. He performed as a Leader.

This will be good for Ohio. Maybe he'll return with yet another "brainstorm of an idea".
