Love him or hate him, John Kasich has a distinct way of expressing himself. Here are some classic quotes.
“Politics can not only be drudgery and Captain Queeg with the balls in his hands.”
“I’m an old fashioned person and I happen to believe in traditional marriage.”
“I support traditional marriage, but it’s time to move on.”
“Guess what? I just went to the wedding of a friend of mine who happens to be gay.”
“If the B-2 (bomber) is invisible, just announce you’ve built 100 of them and don’t build them.”
“How did I get elected? Nobody was—I didn’t have anybody for me. We just got an army of people who, and many women, who left their kitchens to go out and get me elected.”
“I’m going to be sure, at least in my state, that (educational) standards are high and local control can be maintained…. Now some might call that Common Core. I don’t really know, but I’m telling you that’s the way it is in my state.”
“The Republican party is my vehicle, not my master.”
“Every time I go to Washington, I break out in a cold sweat. So I try not to spend too much time there.”
“We have to go massively, like we did in the first Gulf War, where we destroyed Saddam’s ability to take Kuwait. We need to have a coalition that will stand for nothing less than the total destruction of ISIS and he have to be the leader.”
“The foreign policy, you have to know how to pick and choose. There’s no way, if Saddam had not had weapons of mass destruction, I would have gone, because I don’t believe the US should be involved directly in civil wars.”
And the latest, as he defended his continue presence in the race during his interview on Face the Nation last Sunday.
“We’re going to win more delegates, and I mean that is our strategy.”
So the strategy for winning the nomination is gaining delegates. Who knew?
