Kasich was in town this week. He gave a speech that was a little
have heard him before, so I was aware that he has a fervent delivery
style. He resonates with passion and spins stories about people he has met
since he became governor.
speech started with turning Ohio's deficit into a surplus. He talked a lot
about making Ohio a great state again. He believes it all starts with Ohio
being a business-friendly environment, which then leads naturally to tax
reductions and job creation.
surprise for me was the amount of time he devoted to compassionate
conservatism. He expressed great concern for the unemployed, the poor, the
uneducated, the mentally ill, and the people who have fallen on hard
speech, which was relatively free-form and informal, tried to paint a picture
of a man who has been blessed and wants to use his good fortune and power to do
good. He believes he is leading Ohio to a better place. At times he
sounded like a preacher at an old-fashioned revival.
says we can change. If his speech is any indication, he wants us to know
that he has changed. I wonder if this is part of his groundwork for a
change of address…someplace, say, on Pennsylvania Avenue?
