(FreedomJournal.org)- Remember John Kasich? He’s the failed presidential candidate who tried to take on big names like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump in 2016…and failed miserably. He offered a weak platform then, and despite the many successes of the Trump campaign, has chosen to instead support the far-left candidacy of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Kasich is all set to speak at the Democratic National Convention this year and officially confirm his support for the Democrats in the November race, and despite this, still think he has a “right to define what it means to be a conservative.”
Speaking to far-left news network CNN this week claiming that the Republican Party doesn’t have a “positive message” of lifting everybody up and providing equal opportunity, despite the Trump administration having opened up opportunities for people of all races by creating a booming economy with historically low unemployment numbers.
“I think I have a right to define what it means to be a conservative and that means a government when necessary not opposed to it that what the conservative movement ought to be is opportunity for everyone,” he said.
If you’re confused, you’re right to be. It doesn’t make much sense.
“The Republican Party ought to be a party that has a positive message of lifting everyone…But you know, Erin, look. Leaders walk a lonely road. If you’re not prepared to walk a lonely road and do the things that your conscience tells you to do, then how do you think about yourself when you look in the mirror?” he added.
You can watch some of the bizarre interview below if you’re so inclined, but be warned: it’s classic John Kasich talking nonsense.

If you watch the whole interview, you’ll hear Kasich claiming that the fact he balanced the budget in Washington is what makes him a conservative…as if being a conservative is all about budgets and not about fighting back against insane radical progressive policies advocated by Joe Biden.
“And over here in Ohio, we fixed the state and cut taxes and grew almost half a million jobs and left almost 3 billion in the rainy day fund for the governor we have now,” he said. “So I am conservative. And people are going to say, oh, well, he’s really not. Yes I have been. But I believe that Biden can bring us together.”
