"John Kasich meets with Obama to discuss"



by 6 Jurors

John Richard Kasich (/ˈkeɪsɨk/; born May 13, 1952) is the 69th Governor of Ohio, in office since 2011. A member of the Republican Party, he previously served as a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Ohio's 12th congressional district from 1983 to 2001. He was a commentator on Fox News Channel, hosting Heartland with John Kasich (2001–2007). He also worked as an investment banker, as managing director of Lehman Brothers' Columbus, Ohio office until the firm collapsed in 2008.
In the 2010 Ohio gubernatorial election, Kasich defeated Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland, 49% to 47%. He was re-elected in a landslide in 2014, defeating Democrat Ed FitzGerald, the County Executive of Cuyahoga County, 64% to 33% and winning all but two counties.

Washington (CNN)Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he feels it's his "responsibility and duty as a leader" -- no matter the political cost -- to help President Barack Obama shepherd the Trans-Pacific Partnership through Congress.
"I have never been an ideological supporter of free trade. The ideologues use to come to me and be frustrated with me," he told the media during the White House press briefing.
"But when you look at these agreements in a real sense - and this one is much different than even NAFTA," Kasich added. "This is China. This is Russia. These are fledgling countries in Asia and we want to pivot to Asia? We have to do this."
The two-term Republican governor met with Obama in the Oval Office on Friday. In an exclusive interview Thursday night, he told CNN's Dana Bash he doesn't mind the political backlash he could face.
"I welcome the fact that people will criticize me for putting my country ahead of my party," Kasich said.
Kasich and Obama could be facing an uphill battle: Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton oppose the 12-nation Pacific Rim deal, which Obama has pitched as a way to counterbalance China's rise in the region.
"This is the first time the candidates in both major political parties say they are opposed to free trade. It's astounding to me," Kasich said.
In the Oval Office, Kasich joined Obama, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former George W. Bush administration Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and others for a meeting on the 12-nation Pacific Rim deal.
"This is an opportunity for the Congress to carry out its responsibility," Kasich said.
"You gotta get this done. I'd love to think it could happen next year. I'm not convinced it can happen after this year," he added.
Kasich waded into the presidential debate a bit, but mainly focused his efforts on rallying Republicans away from Trump's protectionist stance and toward the party's pro-trade orthodoxy.
"I think I need to spend my time making the case that we don't want to hurt United States national security issue(s), we don't want to turn our back over there, and frankly, we don't want to put ourselves in a position where we're not taking advantage of economic opportunities," he said.
Kasich also defended the prospect of Obama pushing the TPP toward passage in a "lame duck" session of Congress, after the November 8 election but before a new president and Congress are sworn in.
"Frankly, if I have to come down here and spend some time lobbying my Republican colleagues, I'm more than glad to do that," Kasich said.
"There's definitely some people I can call and talk to," he said. "This is a big deal. I mean, if we were to just walk away with this -- with both candidates saying they don't want this -- we turn our backs on Asia."
He also played down the political potency of Trump's anti-trade position in manufacturing-heavy Ohio, saying it's not why Trump might win the state.
"I don't think that's what it will turn on. And frankly, part of the problem that the Clinton campaign has is that there's literally no enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton. There just isn't right now. I don't know if it will change but that is her challenge," Kasich said.
Kasich also talked politics, saying it's "very unlikely" he will vote for Trump, his former GOP primary rival.
"Too much water under the bridge," Kasich said.
But one other thing's for sure: "I'm not voting for Hillary."
Referencing his refusal to attend the Republican National Convention in his home state, Kasich said, "I think my actions have spoken very loudly -- louder than even my words."
Touting his campaign stops for House and Senate Republican candidates across the country, he said his goal this fall is to "get Republicans out to vote -- period."
"We want to re-elect Senator [Rob] Portman and we want to elect people down-ticket," he said, conceding he knows that'll help Trump, as well.
"Because of the success that we've had in Ohio, Ohio's turning more red. It's more Republican," he said. "And why? Things are going pretty well. So when you produce things and people feel good, it has an impact. I think Ohio now is more Republican than it's been in a very long time, and that, of course, accrues to any Republican."
If Trump wins the election and offered him a role in his administration, Kasich said he'd help -- as he would with any president.
"If there's something I can do and something I agree on, absolutely," Kasich said.
As for his own political future -- and whether his aggressive campaign schedule for Republicans this cycle foreshadows a 2020 run for president -- Kasich deflected.
He said he's campaigning for House and Senate candidates "because I feel responsibility."
"I mean, you know, look, I don't have any idea what I'm going to do with my political future, I really don't," he said. "I'm not closing any doors. But I'm not here plotting and scheming what's going to happen down the road.

CLEVELAND — Donald J. Trump’s chief adviser used the first day of theRepublican National Convention on Monday to excoriate Gov. John R. Kasich for not endorsing Mr. Trump, touching off a remarkably bitter exchange between the campaign of the presumptive Republican nominee and advisers to Ohio’s popular Republican governor.

Addressing reporters at a breakfast on Monday, Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s de facto campaign manager, accused Mr. Kasich of acting “petulant” for refusing to support Mr. Trump following the governor’s defeat in the Republicans’ presidential nominating process.

“He’s embarrassing his party in Ohio,” Mr. Manafort said of Mr. Kasich, calling the governor’s chief political strategist the culprit behind Mr. Kasich’s strategy of not endorsing Mr. Trump. “Negotiations broke down because John Weaver thinks that John Kasich will have a better chance to be president by not supporting Donald Trump.”

Such a calculation, Mr. Manafort said, is “a dumb, dumb, dumb thing.”

Ohio Gov. John Kasich did not follow U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s lead and endorse Donald Trump for president Friday night, and said he has seen nothing in Trump’s recent behavior that makes him any more comfortable with the idea of President Trump.

Kasich was the opening keynote speaker at the Texas Tribune Festival. Evan Smith, the Tribune’s CEO, who interrogated Kasich for an hour, began by offering him an opportunity to evaluate Cruz’s announcement hours earlier that the Texas senator was endorsing his once bitter rival and asking his supporters to vote for Trump.

“Everybody’s got to do their thing,” Kasich said of Cruz’s move. But it was clear that isn’t where he is headed for now, though he hinted that he did have something in mind when it comes to how he will vote in the presidential race to complement his voting Republican down ballot.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, center, poses for a photo with a student after speaking and answering questions during a campaign stop at Hofstra University, on April 4 in, Hempstead, N.Y., during his 2016 presidential run.
“I’m not going to tell you exactly what I’m going to do — not right here in Texas right now,” he said.

Kasich was the last Republican presidential candidate to drop out after the long and bruising primary battle against Trump and more than a dozen other rivals. Kasich won only his home state of Ohio, a state that is crucial to the Electoral College outcome and which he said is too close to call right now.

It was a full house at the Hogg Memorial Auditorium on the University of Texas campus. Kasich, while classically conservative, came off as a raging moderate in the more conservative — or in Trump’s case, nationalist/populist — confines of the Republican presidential field, and he mostly pleased the crowd Friday with his deviations from that more hard-right orthodoxy.

For example, he believes in climate change — though he said he’s not ready to go to war against fossil fuels. Unlike Texas officials, Kasich accepted Medicaid expansion and he praised President Barack Obama for expanding the program.

He described the fierce controversy about Common Core education standards — another hot button for the tea party right — as “hyper-goofy.”

Raised Catholic, Kasich described how his own faith sprang forth after his parents were killed by a drunk driver, and said it led him to look out for the vulnerable. His mantra, which he said grew out of the Christian but especially the Jewish faith, is, “Are we willing to live a life a little bigger than ourselves.”

But, Kasich said he was suspicious of people who pressed their faith in the public square and gave religion a bad name.

He is anti-abortion, and he ran afoul of the generally liberal audience, when he was asked about defunding Planned Parenthood in Ohio.

“I think it’s an organization that discredited itself,” he said, to some hisses from the crowd.

Smith asked the audience to be nice, and Kasich replied with mock injury, “I need a safe place.”

When a young man cited the left-wing magazine “Mother Jones” in posing a question, Kasich, the son of a mailman, said, “my issue of ‘Mother Jones’ didn’t come this month.”

Kasich said he thought the Republican presidential debates were “stupid,” and rewarded sensationalism. He complained several times that he didn’t get the attention he deserved because he was too substantive and reasonable. He said he preferred the kind of town meeting conversation he was having Friday night in Austin.

He declaimed against money in politics, but said he didn’t have a solution. Asked if he had many big money donors in his presidential campaign, he said, “not as many as I would have liked.”

He said he is writing a book, partly about his experience running for president, but also about issues of faith and meaning.

Smith introduced him as “the road not taken” in 2016 — the man who was often described a better general election than primary candidate. He is term-limited as governor, so his stint leading Ohio ends in two years. Smith said that would be a perfect time to turn to another run for president. Kasich said he didn’t know whether he would do that and was still exhausted from this year.

But, he didn’t rule it out.

“I want to have a voice,” he said.

John Kasich has suspended his presidential campaign, leaving Donald Trump as the presumptive Republican nominee after Ted Cruz dropped out earlier.

The biggest moment of Kasich's campaign came when he and Cruz announced their cooperation in preventing Trump from getting the nomination, but it's all over in less than a week as they both failed miserably in their states where they were leading.

Basically, although Kasich is the last to drop out, he did no better than Cruz or Rubio. He simply flat out refused to admit defeat. In other word, he's delusional.

I don't really know what Kasich is thinking by staying in a race he cannot possibly win. Is he a democrat spy?

Don't waste your time here Kasich. What the fuck are you doing? Your chance to win is zero. Just drop out already.
