#1 As I overheard on the news last night, the Dump Trump effort failed, I thought, "Too bad all those boycotters didn't show up. Their vote might have made a difference."

Too bad, so sad.

#2 I'll repeat myself. Fascinating how many 'Republicans' and as for so many of the 'Democrats' are anti-democratic. They reveal themselves to be who they are this time around. Never forget.

#3 Kasich embarrasses us here in Ohio simply by being Governor. I would hardly refer to him as a "Republican celebrity". For many of us, he has not turned out to be the man we thought we elected.

#6 An unhappy live audience could be heard in the background groaning at his comment.

Only a crowd of libs would attend Morning Joe, so, moans are to be expected.

Kasich is a twit. He has made a mess of the Ohio education system, making teachers into data collectors. Teaching to the tests out of Washington instead to teaching reading, writing and math skills.

His political career is over in Ohio, unless it's with the Dems. It was over before the convention, he is just too much of a fool to realize it.

Yeah. I forgot to mention Kasich in my comment above on the Jeff Flake story. Along with Flake, Romney, Bush, and Rubio, Kaskich should also come out of the closet and join the Democrats. Now that I'm at it, Lindsey Graham should come out of the closet. That way they can be free to be who they really are and they'll feel much better. They're all crybabies and losers and the Republican party would be better off without them.

#8 Governor Kasich may not be the kind of Republican y'all would prefer, but he definitely is not a Democrat, either old style or new. What he has been able to accomplish here in Ohio has been constrained by the fact that it is a strongly purple state, as much owned by the union/Party machine Democrats of the north as by the conservative Republicans of the south. He's had to thread between those two poles, and would have been able to do a great deal more, had he succeeded in breaking the unions when he tried.

The thing is, his opponent for governor is an old fashioned Ohio Democrat true believer. Imperfect Kasich is a much better bet, in my opinion.
