Our asinine political analysis breaks down Republican presidential candidate John Kasich.
Name: John Kasich
Nickname: Not Kusich, or Kucinish
Political Affiliation: Republican Party
Status: Not Dennis Kucinich
Known For: Governor of Ohio 2011 – Present
Likes: Banks, NAFTA, Common Core, vanilla wafers
Dislikes: Commerce regulation, deportation, striped socks, seasoning
Public Outlook: Kasich seems to be the Republican answer to Martin O’Malley: boring, white, and moderate with a conservative spin both in age and policies. There is some speculation that Kasich may be able to leap-frog to the candidacy based on name recognition from his 2000 presidential campaign as well as being easily referred to as Kusich, which could lead Democratic voters to think they were voting for Dennis Kucinich if Kasich gained the Republican nomination.
Pros: Doesn’t scare America as much as other Republican candidates.
Cons: The “Kasich Action Plan” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “The Square Deal” or “The New Deal.”
