Who thought this was a good idea?

Only in Youngstown, OH would it be considered a "bad idea" to have a governor well on his way to a double digit blowout in November speak at Tressel's installation ceremony.

You may not care for the job Kasich is doing, but he is well on his way to an emphatic election win this fall.

Red, the big win Kasich is anticipating is hardly due to anything he's done. Instead, it's due directly to the Democrats not being able to find anybody at all of any name recognition to run against him. Kasich would be very beatable with a serious opponent. Don't make that into something it's not - Kasich needs to be thrown out of office - he first attempted to bankrupt public employees with SB5, and when that didn't fly, he's bankrupting the government entities they work for - the villages, towns, townships, cities, counties, school districts, and STATE UNIVERSITIES. Every year he returns less of our tax money to us, so he can pump it into the pockets of his cronies, a la JobsOhio.

It shows Kasich's arrogance that he would even consider speaking at a university that's in financial trouble mainly because of Kasich's own policies.

So since big John is coming should we all line the streets and cheer as he passes through?

A good public relations move by Gov. Kasich to officially welcome Tressel back to the university he served so well as coach and athletic director. Of course, since funding for state universities only started 3 years ago by Gov. Kasich, it is disgusting to some, especially those that have slopped at the public trough for so long. Maybe the Edmund Fitzgerald can drive him to Youngstown!

@ Walter:

I thought Edmund FitzGerald sank years ago, or is that an event about to happen in the near future?

Walter - REALLY?!?! You actually wrote "Of course, since funding for state universities only started 3 years ago by Gov. Kasich," REALLY??!!!

When you write sheer nonsense like that, how do you expect to be taken seriously on anything else you write?

Did you mean "diminishing funding" instead?? It's true that previous governors have been tightening up the purse strings, but Kasich has taken that to a whole different level. His budget cuts caused YSU to eliminate jobs. Business (and money, of which there is precious little) is going off campus because the university has done away with doing things itself. Instead, it has to pay the for-profit businesses to do what it used to do for itself.

there is no republican that would ever be welcome in this area. Its just the mindset of the puppets in the area.

@ joe,
The few rats left on the ship are jumping now! In all sincerity, how has Chris Redfern kept his job after the previous election and with this years slate of Democratic candidates? A bunch of wanna-be's and never-will-be's. Harry Meshel has to be disgusted!

@ Walter:

Speaking of Harry Meshel, one does have to wonder what the Old Guard politicians think of today's actors.

The only way the city of Youngstown would welcome Kasich is if he came here with a truckload of cash and handed out to every last person with his hand out.

I am a Republican and I do not care if I ever see Kasich again (did not vote for him and will not vote for him). I hope the Green party is running someone for Ohio governor so I have someone to vote for. Tressel's appointment is very controversial and so is Kasich so why double down? Is this the "democratic" plan to keep everyone away from the festivities?
