He's more than a big government Republican who loves the federal takeover of education known as "Common Core".
He's also more than a rabid pro-Amnesty advocate for open borders.
Despite his newfound respect for the Second Amendment, he's also a gun control advocate who once joined with the Clintons to pass the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban.
The Republican presidential candidate immediately corrected him. “I’ve received an A rating since I’ve been governor,” said Kasich, who won his first gubernatorial term in 2010. “You can strip all the guns away, but the people who are gonna commit crimes or have problems are always gonna be able to have the guns,” he added. “People feel like, ‘I’d like to be able to protect myself.’”
In 1993, following a different mass shooting, Kasich saw the issue another way. After a man used an automatic pistol to fatally shoot eight people at a San Francisco law firm, he was one of 215 House members to vote for a ban on assault weapons that became law in 1994. It was that vote that earned Kasich the failing NRA grade.
Kasich is the prototypical GOP establishment drone, who is staying in the race -- not to win -- but to try to take the nomination process to the convention where insiders will try to steal the trophy from Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.
A vote for Kasich is a vote for chaos.
