So we now learn that Arnold Schwarzenegger has endorsed John Kasich for president. This rather undermines Arnold’s reputation as a manly-man by his endorsement of the wussiest candidate in the Republican stable.
What a strange political period we live in. John Kasich is the candidate who refuses to argue issues face-to-face with the other candidates, nor will he address possibly divisive issues in debates when the moderator specifically presents the occasion to do so to him. He’s the adult-in-the-room who at every turn reminds us that he is the revolutionary governor of Ohio who has done marvelous and wondrous things by reaching across the aisle, which is exactly what conservatives don’t want to happen any longer.
Conservatives in the United States are voting to demonstrate that they are sick of Kasich-like milque-toast candidates who call themselves Republicans, and the Republican establishment had better begin listening to its base.
Poor Arnold! He no longer gets good movies to star in, is looking rather old, and now supports the candidate for president who is in dead last place among his candidate peers.
And Mitt Romney, whom I fully supported and voted for in the 2012 election, can shut up and just go away with his abuse of the 2016 Republican candidates. Mitt is a great man, but he’s a political loser and needs to keep silent from now on.
