Former governor of Ohio, so-called Republican John Kasich turned on the party to speak at the Democratic National Convention. During the event, he endorsed far-left candidate Joe Biden for president. Plenty of Americans were outraged at this turncoat, but it was another former governor, Chris Christie, that really chapped Kasich’s hide.
Some have speculated why a Republican, John Kasich, would turn on the party to endorse Democrat Joe Biden. He claims that Trump is unfit to lead and thinks Joe Biden would be a better president. But no true conservative could support Biden’s platform. He doesn’t just represent returning to the old days of Obama, but he promises to be even more left-wing than his old boss.
There is no honest reason why a Republican, who embraces issues like small government, lower taxes, free-market capitalism, and pro-life would endorse Biden. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Donald Trump humiliated Kasich back in 2016 during the Republican primaries? Trump seems to think so.
Regardless of why Kasich turned on the party and the president, he did speak at the Democratic National Convention. And perhaps Chris Christie had the best summation of the former governor.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had harsh words for fellow Republican and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who spoke Monday night at the Democratic National Convention in favor of presumptive nominee Joe Biden…
“Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich [were] the three candidates left — do you know how many Republicans governors, of his colleagues, his sitting colleagues, endorsed John Kasich? Zero.”
Christie explained, “And the reason they didn’t endorse him is because he’s a backstabber, and he’s an untruthful guy. And so, tonight, Republicans are going to look at that and go, ‘You can have him.’ Please, believe me, give us a break, get him out of our party, you take him for a little while, because on top of that, I’ve worked with John a lot. He’s exhausting.” [Source: The Blaze]
Christie roasted Kasich, exposing the man’s true colors. He brutally decried Kasich as a backstabber and untruthful guy. As a fellow governor and member of the GOP, Christie would have spent plenty of time working with Kasich. To that, he said the guy was “exhausting.”
I bet Christie is expressing the sentiment of many Republicans when he said to Democrats, “you can have him” and “give us a break.” After all, why would anyone think they are still welcome within a party after they’ve stabbed their president in the back?
Several Democrats have jumped ship and defied their party to support Donald Trump. Do you think they were welcome at the DNC? Of course not. Most of them ditched the party and officially become Republicans.
So, what is Kasich waiting for? His only claim to fame among liberals is that he is a “Republican” that is supporting Joe Biden. So, what? He’s a dud, a non-star. Someone that nobody on the right wants around anyway.
In fact, he represents the same tired, corrupt politics that Americans rejected when they elected Donald Trump. His endorsement of Joe Biden doesn’t hurt the president, it helps him. By backing a corrupt, dishonest, mentally declining man like Biden, Kasich is proving the Democrats have put up the same, pathetic candidate for the White House.
Compare that to all the bright, fresh-faced, energetic conservatives who are backing Trump. They come from all walks of life. Men and women, young and old. People who love this country and are willing to fight for it. They are energizing Americans across the country, getting people who used to not care to get registered and vote.
So, yeah, you can keep Kasich.
