Tampa: John Kasich’s convenient memory


Ohio Gov. John Kasich up next, bringing his animated, passionate style to the convention. Kasich trumpets Ohio’s accomplishments under his watch: how the state went from 48th in job creation to fourth in the nation, has a $500 million surplus, and generated 122,000 new jobs in four years.

Down on Obama: “"We need a new partner in Washington," Kasich said. "This relationship is just not working. It is holding us back."

Not a word, predictably enough, about the role of the Obama White House-directed bailout of the auto industry, a rescue operation Kasich opposed (as well as Mitt Romney, the nominee). That rescue sparked the resurgence of his state's economy, leading to the jobs and corporate investment Kasich seems to claim as his own.
