Presidential candidate in his mind and nearly no where else John Kasich thinks that the Republicans are being too mean to Obama about his Supreme Court nomination, and he promises he would cave to Democrats’ wishes if he were president, which is pretty much mathematically impossible.

The Ohio governor even suggested he’d consider naming Garland himself if he wins the presidency, noting the praise the nominee has received from conservatives in the past.
“As someone who’s talked about unity, would you take a look at Mr. Garland…if you were elected president?” host John Dickerson asked Kasich.
“Well, you know, he received you know overwhelming support, I think even from Senator Hatch, so of course we’d think about it,” Kasich replied. “The way we do it, John, is we look at a person’s record. I want a conservative who’s not going to make the law but who will interpret the law and somebody of high standing. I don’t care about their peccadilloes you know 30 years ago. But we have a process. I’ve appointed over 100 judges in Ohio, including a woman that, fortunately, I was able to appoint to the Ohio Supreme Court. And we’ve had good success with our selections.”
Kasich has been trying to situate himself as the “adult in the room” but he really just comes off like an arrogant condescending jerk. Also the only way he can make it to the nomination is using common core math.
