Thirsty For The Job…

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, has been picked to speak at the Democratic National Convention next month on Biden’s behalf. Kasich has been a frequent Trump critic so as we all know, Biden’s strength comes more from liberals wanting to vote President Trump out of office than excitement over Biden, whose regular gaffes have left him in a tougher spot than some Democrats would like to believe.

Kasich, a claimed Christian, has decided that voting for Joe Biden, a pro-abortion candidate, is easier to fulfill his political ambitions than to vote for Trump. This most likely has to do with the struggles he experienced back in 2016 when suspending his presidential campaign one day after becoming the last major challenger to Donald Trump for the nomination. 

There were some fiery exchanges between Kasich and Trump, especially concerning immigration reform. Trump accused Kasich of having struck luck with fracking and sitting on the board of Lehman Brothers’ at the time of bankruptcy.

“He was such a nice guy. And he said, Oh, I’m never going to attack. But then his poll numbers tanked. He’s got – that’s why he’s on the end – and he got nasty. And he got nasty. So you know what? You can have him,” Trump explained about Kasich’s attack on other candidates in the 2016 election. 

In a 2018 study on media coverage of the 2016 election, they noted that the paradox of the Kasich campaign had lacked public interest and that its biggest supporters were the media. Becoming Biden’s best friend and a good title over some bureaucracy while raking in a ridiculous amount of government pension seems to be a good consolation prize for being embarrassed by Donald Trump back in 2016. It’s not a surprise that he’s voting for Biden at all.

There are a few bits and pieces that prove Kasich’s hypocrisy though. First, Kasich is a “claimed” Christian who would be supporting Joe Biden, a pro-abortion candidate. Second, Biden has been so wrong about anything regarding foreign policy over the decades it’s enough to make any politician shudder. Especially Kasich, who got so fired up about it against Trump back in 2016. 

But here we are again…it’s never about the principle or policy, it’s only about the money and the power. Kasich feels no moral objection to voting for Biden, even as a Republican, because it has everything to do with what he can get out of the endorsements and nothing to do with wanting Biden for a President at all. We all know Biden isn’t qualified and can barely follow a teleprompter speech as is, let alone lead the country. 

In reality, Kasich is doing what the rest of the Democrats are doing. Claiming that a vote for Biden is a righteous act and fighting every Republican who even questions Joe Biden’s agenda if he gets elected.
