Absentee Governor

Ohioans are getting a bit fed up with their absentee governor John Kasich. According to a Public Policy Polling survey, 49% of Ohioans want their son-of-a-mailman chief executive to stop his vanity campaign and come home to do his friggin’ job.

49% also believe his perpetual quest for the White House has had a negative impact on his ability to do the job he actually holds. Well, yeah. Hard to govern when you’re an absentee governor.

I gotta admit, I figured it would be more than 49%.

But John isn’t making any friends in Ohio, that’s for sure. In March, he held a 54% approval rating. But today, that’s dropped to 46%.

Now, there are still 38% who believe he should carry on with his quixotic campaign. Maybe they’re just glad that he’s not there underfoot making a nuisance of himself. But when you consider that in March, 52% of Ohioans wanted him to carry on, 38% is a wee bit of a drop.

But fear not you 38%. John Kasich won’t drop out. Despite all his sanctimonious protestations about not wanting to be selected for Vice President, he’s got his eye on the bottom of the ticket. And the best way for him to achieve that is to remain in the race and do his damnedest to hinder Cruz’s ability to be competitive at the convention.

What a jerk

    So John Kasich is an absentee governor…how lucky can the people in Ohio get? If he acts as governor as he acts as a candidate, well that isn’t very comforting to his constituents.

    Does this also apply to Chris Christie? Doesn’t he fly around the country being the “yes” man to that big buffoon but leaving his governing as governor to someone else?

    Our country is messed up and it is going to get worse if Trump or Clinton are elected.

    Us Floridians know what it’s like. Marco Rubio didn’t show up for work , while he was campaigning.
