As hard as it is to believe, John Kasich has a bigger ego than Ted Cruz:
“Kasich: Well, I don’t want to comment on media outlets, but I will tell you that if the Republican Party does not evolve, the Republican Party is going to die. The Republican Party cannot be anti-trade, anti-immigrant, not out there practicing the politics of people, you know, the issues surrounding drug addiction and mental illness and the cost of prescription drugs and healthcare and student debt and all of these things are very personal to people now. And if the party wants to have an ideological debate, it’s never going to win anything in a major way. So I do believe that the party needs to evolve, or I won’t be a part of it.”
1.) John Kasich lost 49 out of 50 states in the Republican primaries. In his mind, this puts him in the catbird position to dictate terms to the party’s base.
2.) John Kasich refused to endorse the winner of the Republican primary.
3.) John Kasich refused to attend his party’s own convention in Ohio even though he is the governor.
4.) John Kasich publicly trashed his own party’s nominee and said he could never vote for him on the eve of the election. He did this in order to throw the election to Hillary Clinton
5.) John Kasich is working with Obama to help pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Now, the Republican Party must become what John Kasich, the #NeverTrump turncoats, and the GOP establishment want it to be, which is to say, an open borders, pro-globalization, warmongering party for cucked suburbanites. They want it to be their own little private country club. It can either evolve into that … or die.
What do you think? Are Trump’s supporters just going to roll over for the 25% of Republicans who think like John Kasich?
