Former governor of Ohio and GOP presidential candidate John Kasich, currently a pro-Biden CNN political commentator, appeared on Chris Cuomo’s show Wednesday evening to trash Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the 17 other state attorney generals who support his lawsuit against Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia over their election procedures.
Kasich, talking to Cuomo along with Obama’s former chief strategist David Axelrod, called the 18 attorney generals “morally and ethically bankrupt” and wondered “how they can look [at themselves] in the mirror.”
“I can’t believe what I am seeing in our country. These Republican leaders—and think about this—18 attorney generals across our country, members of Congress—you were just talking about the Republican leader. You know, I’ve just become convinced that these leaders are morally and ethically bankrupt. I don’t know how they can look in the mirror. I don’t. I’m flabbergasted about this. I mean, these are attorney generals. These are people who are in a position to be able to uphold the law and for them to be joining into something like this… I’m glad to see that the attorney general of Ohio did not join this, this amicus brief. You know, it’s the leadership that’s just lost it. Like I say, they’re bankrupt.”
“And Chris, the reason why my heart is bleeding because, you know, I have been a Republican all of my lifetime. But I’m an American first. And what I see happening here are the people who are supposed to be the shepherds and lead the flock in the right direction. These are shepherds who are not treating the flock right. The flock is scattered. And it’s a tragedy for my party and a tragedy for our country that we’re seeing this. Just morally and ethically bankrupt. I don’t know what else to say. It’s just so upsetting. I have been upset about this from the moment I heard about it. I have been losing my temper about it. But I wanted to come on here today and not just be yelling and screaming. What I’ve had to say is [as] strong as I can possibly say.”

The “principled conservative” Kasich then discussed the lawsuit Thursday morning with CNN’s Kate Bolduan.
“What I wonder about is what happens in their offices when somebody comes in and suggests they ought to file an amicus brief. […] I think over time this has the possibility of damaging their political careers. If I were a candidate against them, I would bring this up. […] I was so angry. I was on last night talking about it. I kinda cooled off because it’s just a joke.”
Kasich later added: “Republican principles and ideals among these leaders went out the window about five years ago. You can’t even tell me what the Republican Party stands for anymore. I really don’t know. Do they have a position on health care? I haven’t heard one. Do they have a position on immigration? I haven’t heard one. Do they have a position on something they used to care about, which is the rising debt in America? I haven’t heard one. What’s their position on the environment? Ignore it. […] I didn’t leave the party. The party left me.”
Back in October, Big League Politics wrote about the Politico report that said the Biden team is considering John Kasich as a possible cabinet member:
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
