The Free Press Wants to Help Republicans


John Kasich Image 1The Detroit Free Press Editorial Board endorsed Ohio Governor John R. Kasich in the March 8th Republican Presidential Primary yesterday. Governor Kasich is a fine man with many worthwhile qualifications, but every poll and vote this year indicate that he is way out of step with the current political zeitgeist. Common Core, Medicaid expansion, and global warming are not Republican crowd pleasers. Even the Democratic Presidential candidates are soft peddling these losers.

Is there a single genuine Republican in Michigan stupid enough to believe that the Detroit Free Press Editorial Board would actually do anything of benefit to the Republican Party, nationally or in Michigan?

Remember that the Detroit Free Press Editorial Board endorsed our current “I know noooooothing” RINO Governor not just once, but twice. Governor Snyder and his merry band of brown-nosing bureaucrats have really boosted the fortunes of the Michigan Republican Party, haven’t they? Even the DeVos family – big Kasich contributors in Ohio Governor racesare not peddling him in Michigan.

So why would the Detroit Free Press Editorial Board endorse Governor John Kasich in the Republican Presidential Primary? Two possibilities: the arrogance of the witless, or another ploy to destroy the Michigan Republican Party.

You decide.

    My $.02: Mitt Romney was behind Scott Walker and that didn't work out (too bad BTW--I really iike the guy) so now he's behind the only candidate left cause no one else wanted his help. Mitt didn't do well in MI at least not in my congressional district. Isn't getting a newspaper endorsement a "kiss of death" anyway. So, that's the real reason for the endorsement--to kill Kasich's campaign? And, when, if ever, in recent memory has a newspaper not endorsed the incumbent--my guess is the editorial board didn't even consult--just followed the standing order. As further thunking--the Devos' keep throwing their money toward social engineering issues which I've always felt is retaliatory for Dicky not elected gov. We are not fooled. Any issue or candidate they back is on my DONOTELECT list. As far as destroy the GOP--they pretty much have done it themselves--Lastly, isn't Kasich the most progressive of all the candidates professing to be conservative?

    Kasich is the only candidate still running (including native Carson) who is capable of providing anything of financial or politically connected consequence (locally) in return for even the simplest of political favors doled out now. by the DFP. He's been glad-handling over here for years and you are correct..this near mirror continuing endorsement in terms of the MIGOP's (almost certain) bleak future is an excellent opposition strategy.

    Cupcake Kasich will be in Traverse City this Friday at the Park Place 9am open doors, 10am start event. I encourage attendance only because you rarely hear a Republican express the truth of his position. Kasich's truth as expressed by him is that he probably should be running as a Democrat. The Cupecake part is as follows:

    The Detroit News also endorsed Governor Kasich today. Now you know why Republicans in Southeastern Michigan are an endangered species.
