John Kasich hints that he may need to leave the GOP
quote:

Huff Po

The Ohio governor also noted that Americans seem enthusiastic about the idea of candidates outside the two main parties.

WASHINGTON Ohio governor John Kasich, a top Republican leader and former candidate for the party’s presidential nomination, on Sunday said the GOP may be on a trajectory to lose supporters like him.

“If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party, period,” he told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” a few minutes after he noted that Americans seem more eager to hear from independent candidates than ever before.

The governor’s comment came in response to a question about how Republicans should react to Alabama politician Roy Moore securing their party’s nomination for that state’s open Senate seat. Moore is a former judge who was twice removed from Alabama’s Supreme Court for violating legal standards, and Tapper noted that he has said homosexual conduct should be illegal, questioned the birthplace of former President Barack Obama and suggested Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) should not be allowed a position in Congress because he is a practicing Muslim.

“Well, look, I don’t run the party. I can tell you for me, I don’t support that. I couldn’t vote for that. I don’t know what the heck I would have to do, but I don’t live in that state. I mean, those claims are ? I mean, they’re ludicrous and they’re divisive,” Kasich said, adding that the party needs to be “fixed” to limit the influence of far-right elements and he sees his job as trying to get that done. The governor said he hopes figures like Moore do not represent the GOP’s future.


And that Kasich thinks he could go third party and win more States.

He most definitely does. He has barely anything in common with mainstream Republicans.

I saw the interview. He came close, but when Tapper backed him into a corner he kind of backed down. Then he kind of ramped back up to the "I'm not going to be able to support the party, period" line. Seems a bit softer than leaving the party. Maybe just not supporting the party until some things change.

Good for John K.

However, where are the dem criticizing their party for allowing it to be overtaken by the SJW crowd?

Seems to me that there needs to be a new moderate party where they actually talk to each other like adults and don't use identity politics.

Kasich has always been the pretend favorite among people that would never not vote Democrat anyway.

In other shocking news OJ says he has given up his search to find 'the real killer.'

I think it's funny anyone believed he was Republican anyway. He's welcome to come out of the closet.

The only way to fight the SJW, MSM, BS is T R U M P American Style.

Trump, American Style,
Truer than the Red, White and Blue.
Trump, American Style.

No, GOPer will fight the PC, SJW, divisive cultural and racial divide nonsense. SEE: McCain and Romney.

He hasn't supported the party in years. He embraced Obamacare, expanded Medicaid, openly rooted against the GOP candidate, and he didn't attend the GOP convention in his own state.

We may need to organize wellness checks for some of our more committed BoehnerCons.
