John Kasich and the Ohio Resurgence


Things have been going very well in Ohio since Governor John Kasich took office.  There has been robust job growth, among the best in the Midwest.  Over the summer, Standard & Poor’s upgraded the state’s credit rating from “negative” to “stable,” citing positive employment growth and Kasich’s balanced budget.

When a reporter asked Kasich on Wednesday whether he thought President Obama deserved some of the credit for Ohio’s turnaround, his answer was… well, it certainly wasn’t delivered in self-serving politician-speak. 

Note that Kasich is readily willing to concede a point that frightens the President and his apologists to death: that some of the decline in unemployment is due to people dropping out of the workforce entirely.
