Ohio Gov. John Kasich Tells Obama To Do His Own Job First

Of course, Obama is way too busy enjoying the trappings of the Oval Office, putting his 2012 election campaign into high gear, and getting revenge on reporters who actually report to actually do the job of Chief Executive. Obama was recently in Ohio to do a taped interview with WKYC Cleveland, and said, vis a vis SB5, which “removed sick time, pension benefits and healthcare from negotiations between unions and the government” that “this was blaming public workers for the public problems.”

Kasich was asked about the president’s strong opinion. And Kasich offered his own strong response. The full answer is on the video below, but Kasich said in the 1990s he had been House Budget Committee chairman and chief architect of the last federal budget to be balanced.

He noted that Ohioans’ elected representatives had reached this legislative agreement and, as required by law, balanced the state budget while preserving tax cuts. Then, he added:

“The president of the United States has I think a $13 trillion debt. Why doesn’t he do his job? When he does his job and gets our budget balanced and starts to prepare a future for our children, then maybe he can have an opinion on what’s going on in Ohio.”

Andrew Malcolm also has the latest from RNC Chair Reince Priebus, who said

“We’re borrowing four and a half billion dollars a day and this president is more worried about birth certificates, Oprah Winfrey and fundraisers at the Waldorf Astoria,” Priebus complained on “CNN Newsroom” Thursday, a day after the president released his long-form Hawaii birth certificate and then jetted to Chicago for a long-scheduled interview with the daytime queen of talk.

“It’s maddening and I just wish the president would engage in the real issues that are affecting America,” Priebus, who recently replaced Michael Steel, said. “We’ve got him going to Jonas Brothers, golfing, doing everything except figuring out a way to save Medicare that’s going to go bankrupt in nine years,” he added.

The problem here is that asking Obama to work is a double edged sword, because when he does actually Do President, things get much, much, much worse. His policies bear no likeness to reality, except in the 1950’s Soviet Union. Of course, what Kasich and Priebus are doing is highlighting Obama’s inability to do the job as President, which should be apparent to everyone who has cognitive abilities.
