Kasich's proposal is right on the money. We need to reinstitutionalize patriotism. We need to reincorporate our values. And if history is any indicator, we ought to do it sooner rather than later.

No Ohio Miracle, Mr. Trump

Cleveland -- In the most recent Republican debate, even Donald Trump bought Governor John Kasich's spin that the Ohio economy is "doing well." As an Ohioan I'll just say: If you believe that, Mr. Trump, I have a bankrupt casino to sell you.

Trump's Triumph, Fox News' Victory and the Case for Kasich

Once the voting public begins to accept Kasich as a serious and viable candidate, which is likely, serious money will start to flow into Kasich's coffers. And serious media will pay more attention to him. And he could emerge as the serious contender to Trump, who is viewed largely as a popular figure, but not a serious contender for the GOP party nomination.

Ohio Governor John Kasich did his state proud last night, by actual answering the questions posed to him and by addressing his responses with succinct rubber-meets-the-road proposals. Setting aside whether or not the content of his replies had merit, compared to the bloviating, pontificating and occasional whining indulged in by the other candidates, Kasich emerged as a centrist with appeal across the political divide.

In Cleveland, as LeBron says, "nothing is given, everything is earned," so earning respect here will require something beyond defaming Mexican immigrants as "rapists" (Trump), claiming U.S. foreign policy would march Israelis "to the door of the oven" (Huckabee), or comparing Wisconsin labor protestors to ISIS terrorists (Walker).

A Washington Post report reveals that Kasich slashed public school funding by half a billion dollars, boosting state spending on charter schools, despite the quality concerns.

Vouchers To Grow In Ohio? In Ohio, Gov. John Kasich's (R) budget plan would reduce funding gaps between wealthy and poor public school districts and also create a new voucher program, reports the Columbus Dispatch. The new vouchers would give about $4,250 a year toward private-school tuition to any kindergartener whose family is making less than 200 percent of the poverty line. The next year, Kasich would expand the program to include first graders. While an existing scholarship plan currently does something similar for 15,702 students, a full 1.8 million students would qualify for the new plan's income requirements The budget plan includes a 6 percent overall school funding increase the following year, and then 3.2 percent more the next year.
