Establishment RINO John Kasich, who is in fourth place in delegates, despite being in a three-person race, and stays in the race for some reason even though he is — by a wide margin — mathematically eliminated from winning the GOP nomination, probably didn’t help himself last night at the GOP town hall hosted by CNN.
With the Wisconsin primary coming up on April 5, Kasich, who previously said that Jesus was for Obamacare, then conveniently said that he would repeal it, and now is saying that vowing to repeal Obamacare is “stupid,” has again stepped in it.
But I digress.
Probably the stupidest thing any candidate could do in Wisconsin, the land of the Green Bay Packers, is to diss the team’s future Hall of Fame quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. But that’s exactly what Kasich did last night.
As you can see in the video clip captured by TMZ, Kasich told the audience that he’d consider naming Wisconsin’s number one pro athlete, Aaron Rodgers, as his running mate, but only if he has a better year than he did last year.
Needless to say, the remark went over like a fart in church, a failed attempt at pandering that backfired.
For the record, Aaron Rodgers threw 31 touchdown passes while only throwing 8 interceptions and throwing for over 3,800 yards. Those numbers were down slightly from his best records, perhaps because he lost his top receiver, Jordy Nelson, for the entire year due to injury.
One could easily argue that Rodgers had a very good year considering Nelson, Rodgers top target, caught 98 passes for over 1,500 yards the prior year — almost impossible numbers to replace.
Stick to politics Kasich, but go back to mastering that craft as governor, please.
