Hey!…. Did ya know Kasich’s Daddy was a mailman?
Unify?….MY ASS!!!!…. These dipshits wanna rip the country apart and turn it into a third world shithole!
Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) on Monday appealed to disaffected Republicans to vote for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, pitching the former vice president as the right candidate to unify a country at a crossroads.
In a prerecorded address, Kasich stood at a fork in a gravel road to symbolize the divergent paths he said the country could go down based on the outcome of November’s election.
“Many of us have been deeply concerned about the current path we’ve been following for the past four years………It’s a path that’s led to division, dysfunction, irresponsibility and growing vitriol between our citizens.”John Kasich
“I’m a lifelong Republican, but that attachment holds second place to my responsibility to my country……That’s why I’ve chosen to appear at this convention. In normal times, something like this would probably never happen, but these are not normal times.”John Kasich
The ex-governor and former congressman acknowledged the differences of opinion he and others in the GOP may have with Biden. He sought to assuage concerns that the former vice president might be pulled to the left by progressives in the Democratic Party, saying he knows Biden to be “reasonable” and that “no one pushes Joe around.”
He urged independents and Republicans on the fence about Biden to put partisanship aside, warning that four more years of Trump would have “terrible consequences for America’s soul.”
“We can all see what’s going on in our country today and all the questions that are facing us, and no one person or party has all the answers,” Kasich said. “But what we do know is that we can do better than what we’ve been seeing today, for sure. And I know that Joe Biden, with his experience and his wisdom and his decency, can bring us together to help us find that better way.”
Kasich was one of a few Republicans to speak Monday during the first night of the convention, though he was the most prominent. Others included former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman and former Rep. Susan Molinari (N.Y.).
The former Ohio governor ran an unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2016, and since leaving office at the beginning of 2019, he has solidified himself as one of the most prominent Trump critics in the GOP.
The president retains an iron grip on the Republican Party, and Trump’s allies have brushed aside the likes of Kasich and groups such as the Lincoln Project as a vocal minority attempting to remain relevant.
“He was a loser as a Republican, and he’ll be a loser as a Democrat……Major loser as a Republican. I guess you can quote me on that. John was a loser as a Republican. Never even came close. And as a Democrat he’ll be an even greater loser.”Donald Trump

But Kasich’s inclusion in Monday’s proceedings was a nod to the Biden campaign’s attempt to connect with independents and disaffected Republicans who may help swing the election in Democrats’ favor in states such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
