Is John Kasich a Lizard?

Is John Kasich a lizard person in an Edgar suit?

I've never given it much thought before, but I began to wonder after watching this video of Kasich immediately responding to the Oregon community college shooting by touting his "A rating" with the NRA.

What is slightly less obvious than Kasich's lack of humanity is his admission that he changed positions after becoming governor. He's running for president, for Pete's sake.

    @0:06: Kasich told of the shooting and clock starts
    @0:18: Kasich mentions his NRA rating
    @0:21: the video claims it took only 2 seconds for Kaisch to mention his rating.

    Someone really needs to learn how time works. And that the point you’re trying to make is lost when you show yourself to be idiots while making it.

    • Yeah, that was odd. The questioner mentions his NRA rating first and asks Kasich about it.

      And Kasich’s reaction doesn’t seem like this is actually the first time he’s heard about the shootings.

      I smell shenanigans. Did that come from Kasich’s people?

    “You can strip all the guns away, but the people who are going to commit crimes or have problems are always going to have the guns.”

    That is probably the stupidest thing anyone has ever said about gun control, and it’s something that’s always said about gun control. John Kasich has certainly absorbed the NRA-approved line of patter, hasn’t he?

    (Incidentally, I have no freaking idea what units of time are being measured by that on-screen timer, but they aren’t seconds. According to my stop-sundial, the timer actually runs for 12.6 seconds. That’s still an appallingly short amount of time for Kasich to wait before touting his NRA rating, but it ain’t no 2.05 seconds.)

      Hence why I didn’t cite the specific amount of time, but it is his very first thought and response.

        Still better than Jeb Bush’s response to the Oregon shooting.

        Not by much, but a little bit.

          How about the response from Huckleberry Hound?
          “Hey Boo… Boo, it’s the black bears fault”

    In the election that won him the governor’s office in 2010, Kasuck touted his gun-control credentials, and it was Democrat Ted Strickland, now running for Senate, who was the NRA guy. Now Kasuck is gun lover, too. Big GOP money makes the world go ’round.

    Wow! What an opportunistic piece of shit John Kasich is.
