Hot on the heels of President Subprime McDowngrade's visit to Ohio -- during which he attempted to take credit for Gov. John Kasich's stunningly successful fiscal record -- comes the obvious question from a reporter. Obvious, that is, if you're a liberal Statist hack.
The governor's reaction is priceless.
Yes. That was Kasich cracking up.
Over the course of the past year, fiscal conservatives -- led by Kasich -- eliminated an $8 billion shortfall in Ohio's budget. How did they accomplish this feat? By slashing government, constraining spending, and cutting taxes by nearly $1 billion.
Ohio, which was 48th in job creation under Democrat governance, skyrocketed to fifth under Kasich.
And while the United States under President McDowngrade was McDowngraded, Ohio's credit rating was ratcheted up.
Now that Ohio is running a surplus, Democrats are doing what Democrats always do. Which, generally speaking, is trying to steal the taxpayers' money and slather it around. Under Gov. Kasich, at least, they're going to have a much harder time ripping off the private sector.
