Sore loser John Kasich refused to come to the Republican National Convention and still refuses to endorse Donald Trump. The Republican Governor of Ohio, who most conservatives see as a spoiler, is apparently still upset that he is not the nominee. However, Trump just got back at Kasich for his lack of support, and it is priceless.
One familiar saying in Republican politics is “You can’t win the presidency if you don’t win in Ohio,” and that has been true since 1960. In every election since 1960, Ohio has voted for the eventual winner.
So, when John Kasich decided to be a big idiot and refuse to keep his promise and endorse whoever became the Republican nominee, it was a big deal. Kasich could have helped Trump sew up Ohio, but he is a selfish politician who cares nothing about the ultimate welfare of the American people.
Never fear, Kasich just became a nobody because Trump doesn’t need him anymore. That’s right, even the New York Times knows Trump will take Ohio. The polls have Trump up by 2% in the Buckeye State, but it’s over because Hillary has pulled out all advertisements, meaning she knows she can’t win there anymore.
Earlier in September, the Times was declaring Ohio “an essential swing state,” where Governor John Kasich threatened to destroy Trump’s presidential hopes by withholding his endorsement and denying Trump his turnout operation. The Times added: “No candidate since 1960 has made it to the White House without winning Ohio.” [viaBreitbart]
Now, the Times is changing its tune, and it is bad news for Hillary and Kasich. Kasich can kiss his political career goodbye since Trump just gave him the ultimate ass whooping by taking Ohio without him.
The New York Times, which might as well be Hillary’s personal press corp, suddenly came out in panic mode and is re-writing decades of political history by saying:
After decades as one of America’s most reliable political bellwethers, an inevitable presidential battleground that closely mirrored the mood and makeup of the country,Ohio is suddenly fading in importance this year.
Yeah, sure it is. What about all those elections since 1960? What happened to the saying “whoever wins Ohio wins the presidency”? The good citizens of Ohio are fed-up, and they aren’t pawns being played in some chess game, especially by some has-been like John Kasich.
This is huge news. Ohio is voting for Donald Trump, and John Kasich and Hillary Clinton are the losers who are being sent a specific message: Americans are through with being used by politicians to get in office and then forget they serve us, we don’t serve them.
