I used to like John Kasich, a lot. When he was a congressman, he was Mr. Conservative. He led the budget battles against President Bubba (aka Mr. Hillary Clinton).
For years I thought he’d make a good president. I was hoping someone would pick him for the VP slot. But no one ever did. And maybe that was a good thing.
He’s not the same man. He’s been sucked into the strange cocoon world of career politicians. He’s been assimilated.
Big government is dangerously contagious.
