You've just gotta' love Republicans who care about one thing, and one thing only, which is tax breaks for their rich campaign donors while devastating the poor and the most vulnerable in our society pretending that they actually care about fiscal responsibiilty. Fox's Neil Cavuto brought on Ohio Gov. John Kasich for a little Republican rehab this Thursday, while also letting him play the "both sides do it" game when it comes to government spending and taking credit for the balanced budget we saw under the Clinton administration.
Fox News' Neil Cavuto invited former Fox host and current Ohio Gov. John Kasich onto his program for a softball interview that glossed over Kasich's record of harmful, draconian policies directed at middle and working class families in Ohio. Cavuto also completely ignored ethics questions currently surrounding the Kasich administration's JobsOhio company -- a privatized state development corporation accused of steering tax dollars toward Kasich allies.
Kasich, a former Fox News personality who has received considerable encouragement from the network in the past, appeared on the August 15 edition of Your World where he discussed his economic record and controversial tenure as Governor of Ohio -- at one point, he was the most unpopular governor in the country. According to Cavuto, Kasich "has single-handedly turned his state around, and right now he is the most popular he's ever been there, but lately now he's ticking off a lot of folks which is why we always love having him on."
