C'mon people, if you want to post an article criticizing Kasich, please post a link to something a little more credible, it's not hard. 

Um, these stories have all been reported in the Plain Dealer in the past few weeks/months.

Kasich's lake protections are timely and wise

By The Plain Dealer Editorial Board

A high fin from the fish in Lake Erie to Gov. John Kasich, who signed an executive order Wednesday that bans oil and gas drilling in Lake Erie.

His action provides a welcome layer of protection should Congress lift its own ban on drilling in the Great Lakes, the largest freshwater ecosystem on the continent.

Kasich's order prohibits drilling not just in but also under Lake Erie, a distinction that could be important given the anticipated expansion in Ohio of horizontal drilling by companies fracturing the rock, or "fracking," for deeply buried shale oil and gas. It bars the Ohio Department of Natural Resources from issuing any permit, license or lease that allows the withdrawal or production of either oil or gas from, or under, the bed of Lake Erie.

Anyone been following the severance tax issue?  I'm not exactly a Kasich fan, but he seems like the voice of pure reason compared to the insanity that is the GOP leadership in the state legislature.

Kasich is a hardhead..... but that appears to be a good thing because he has no issues with breaking party lines.  It's almost like his ego won't let him be controlled by TPTB within the GOP.  I find myself agreeing with him much, much more than I thought I would when he was elected.  If polled, I would be on the "approve" side for as far as the job he is doing as Governor.

If Strickland had Kasich's determination (and gall)  I honestly believe he'd still be governor and we'd have 3C rail.

I don't know, a lot of it is about timing, too.  Strickland benefited from running in 2006 (as opposed to 2002 or 2004 if the election had been that year) and was punished for being a Democrat in 2010.

This is a long read, but a very good article, I still hate Kasich and this article hits a lot of the points as to why (Cincinnati streetcar not included!)

Did Barack Obama Save Ohio?
The New York Times By MATT BAI
Published: September 5, 2012

 
The way John Kasich sees it, he is fulfilling a grand design, a mission for which he was chosen by God, to save Ohio. “It’s like what what’s-his-name told the hobbit,” Ohio’s Republican governor told me as we flew on the plane that ferries him around the state. “What’s that guy’s name? Gandel? Gandorf?” A pair of young aides seated across from Kasich called out helpfully over the drone of the engine. “Gandalf,” Kasich repeated. “Do you remember what he told the hobbit?”

Fascinating article, on several levels. It really highlighted so many unanswered questions. I had to laugh hearing Kasich compare economists to astrologists. Actually, I'm betting astrologers have more of a handle on their trade in comparison.

I've personally grown exhausted/bored by the whole R vs. D political paradigm. I understand it, but I've shed my past, nostalgic allegiances and I feel better.

So, according to the following republicans in the last 12 months, God has chosen them specifically

A) John Kasich
B) Michelle Bachmann
C) Rick Perry
D) Rick Santorum
E) Herman Cain

Yikes.  Serious red flags go off in my head anytime I hear someone say they were 'chosen by God'.

That was a long and interesting read. 

I'm glad the author dug into the JobsOhio debacle.  Crony Capitalism involving large transfers of wealth to limited numbers of individuals is at it's very worst when the public coffers are being raided and redistributed.

Yeah, they built that.

Anybody else catch Strickland and Kasich on 90.3 this morning talking about Ohio's role in the election?They both said that Ohio basically is a microcosm of the US as a whole. Strickland was first, and tooted his and the POTUS's horn saying that the recovery in Ohio started even before he left office. When the mod got Kasich on the line and  later asked Kasich about it he had a very gruff no comment answer. It was very odd and un- politician like. Kasich had some good things to say about diversifying Ohio's economy.

Please help this along Governor K:

Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols sounds encouraging but not specific. "The sooner we can transition back to local operation of these local resources the better for everyone," he said. "That needs to happen in a way that makes the most sense for all Ohioans, and we're optimistic that we'll find that solution."



State officials must not let the future of Cleveland's lakefront parks become our fiscal 'sea' cliff

Updated: Tuesday, December 04, 2012, 8:14 AM
By Mark Naymik, The Plain Dealer

It's time for Ohio to give up management of the Cleveland's lakefront parks, which include Edgewater and Euclid Beach.

The Cleveland Metroparks is in the strongest position to run them. As my colleague James Ewinger outlined in a recent story, the Metroparks has been studying exactly what it will take to improve maintenance, upgrade amenities, increase the number of users and keep the parks safe.

To its credit, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which manages a half-dozen city lakefront parks, wants to unload them.

Yet, negotiations keep spinning around money, making this debate Ohio's fiscal sea cliff.

No - from http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/05/19/pardon-from-kasich-is-rare.html --

"Gov. John Kasich has used his executive clemency power moderately during his 16 months in office, sparing the lives of two convicted killers but approving only 5 percent of other requests."

[...]

"Kasich has done far better than his predecessor, Ted Strickland, in keeping up with clemency requests.
Strickland made no decisions for nearly three years in office and rushed to complete hundreds of cases in his last few months as governor.
In 412 clemency requests decided thus far, Kasich released no one from prison."

For the record --

* Strickland (D) approved 20% of 1,615 cases from 2005-2010. Most pardons were for low-level, non-violent offenders. He also spared the lives of convicted killers.
* Celeste (D) granted just 67 clemencies before 1991. Nulled 8 death sentences, shortened prison time for 26 female inmates who were victims of battered-woman syndrome.
* Taft (R) approved <10% of the cases.
* Voinovich (R) approved <10% of the cases.
* Rhodes (R) approved 56/320 cases, or 17.5%, in 1982.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer (before it went to archive), noted that Kasich granted clemency based not on his weight, but from questions regarding the trial, mirroring the statements made from the parole board.

I want to say 2k is just the Surgeon General's recommendation, and there are actually a lot of people who live on less (though even more people who live on more, with most of it being complete junk).  I actually don't know what the threshold for starvation is, but it's well below 2k.
