Seriously folks. The guy running the state of Ohio proudly declared today: “I don’t read newspapers in the State of Ohio.” His reason? Because it doesn’t give him “an uplifting experience.”

Ugh.

He claims his disdain for print journalism and his lack of interest in important, current events is not that new, and it’s “just like presidents have done in the past.” The only President I know of that has ever publicly admitted to not reading newspapers was George W. Bush. Enough said.

The fact that Kasich doesn’t read about state or local news certainly does explain a lot about his policies and his general lack of interest and concern for what Ohioans want, need and expect from his administration. When you have absolutely no clue what is going on in the state, and have no idea how Ohioans are reacting to your policies, it’s much easier to believe all those yes-men you’ve surrounded yourself with.

The truth is a bummer. Kasich’s worked hard to get where he is in life. Why should he bother wasting his time with anything that doesn’t provide him with an “uplifting experience”? Why risk getting sad, newspaper story ink all over your freshly-pressed, pleated dockers when you’re surrounded with people who agree with everything you say and lie to you about the awesomeness of all your ideas? e.g. “Yes! I think selling the turnpike will be VERY popular in NE Ohio, sir”

Did I already say Ugh?

I’m guessing the folks over at the Dispatch are feeling pretty stupid right now. Having spent the past year carefully crafting articles, headlines and editorials to impress the new Governor, they now find out he hasn’t read a single one of them.

    Of course he doesn’t. He favors the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Czar Kashitch I is used to “news” sources that are contrived fantasies. That is the environment he comes from, after all.

    Actually, I would imagine he previews the Pittsburgh Tribune P.U. (Review), the Scaife-financed right wing vanity rag that is Pittsburgh”s equivalent of the Washington Times.

    Sorry, I meant “prefers.”

    You know, they really should have tougher standards at OSU, if they will graduate a guy who can’t read a newspaper.  I’m fairly sure he can’t operate a computer keyboard or read a traffic sign, either.  In fact, it seems the only thing he can do is shoot off his big mouth, which is probably the reason that he decided not to live in the Governor’s Mansion – the doors weren’t wide enough to get his big mouth through.

    I live in South Korea and read most of the major newspapers in Ohio, and a couple of my local ones.

    How does he know Urban Meyer got hired?

    In the video, when he referred to “the ultimate bureaucratic screw-up”, I thought he was refererring to himself.

    I don’t doubt he doesn’t read Ohio newspapers, he is probably fed daily summaries from a staffer that are designed to inflate his ego.

    Isn’t MITS, or a program like it,  mandated by Congress…and wait for it…started in the previous administration?

  • WestParkGuy

    I saw the video.

    Maybe I’m missing something but it seems that he did not know anything about the “look back” policy until he saw a headline in a newspaper. Who else thinks this is disturbing?

    So if he is not reading newspapers, which are reporting on his administration, who is actually briefing him? GOD?

  • WestParkGuy

    He doesn’t read newspapers and he doesn’t think ahead. It must be nice to go thru life uninformed and always right at the same time.

    Just mind numbing. I can’t wait for the Turnpike fight. This fool is gonna get absolutley crucified.

    Makes a lot of sense. That is part of their ideology, go with the gut, not real info.
    I’m surprised since they keep praising him for his evil deeds.

    He’s evil and stupid. We deserve better but we are stuck with his sorry ass.

    Who voted for this monster?

    You know the state is in trouble when your governor has the same level of mentality as Sarah Palin.

    Does this mean he’ll step down if being governor does not provide an “uplifting experience?”

    Maybe he should watch the GMC channel if he wants uplifting experiences.  It shows Bonanza, The Big Valley, Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, and the Waltons, all of which seem to fit his worldview.
