CNN Confirms : I am a Dumbass

h/t Right Ohio

CNN ran a fact-checking piece on a story we wrote Tuesday night and, lo and behold, I was apparently (kinda) wrong. Turns out, John Kasich was actually at a Bob Evans recently. And he actually talked to people there. And two of them actually were working on their household budget. And CNN just happened to have video of it. D'oh!

Now, after a year or so of listening to one story after another coming out of John Kasich's mouth, you can't blame me for being cynical or suspect of everything this guy says. He was a Wall Street insider for crying out loud. But this time (while he obviously distorted and enhanced his story a bit - and CNN points that out as well) he was still more-or-less repeating something that kind of actually happened. For that, he gets a one day pass here at OhioDaily.

And, as promised, he will get a personal apology from me. At his country club. The next time I'm there. (I'll wait quietly for the invitation and the guest pass)

Here's CNN kicking my ass.


You guys, and the facts

It could be worse - somehow. Probably.

In spite of your scattergun rhetoric, I'm not clear on the CNN fact-checking, either.

Kasich's rendition of what appears to have happened is not the same as what CNN reports.
I find it hard to believe that Kasich approached them simply because he "saw them writing numbers", and they just happened to be primo campaign fodder. Something there wreaks of Joe The Plumber, or something.

And how does one "put a real estate license into escrow", around 2:30ish? Is that even possible? And, why would you, even if it's possible?

I think you should be grateful that a gigantic network like CNN takes time to even follow(up) your blog, considering the "time-consuming pains" they take to actually check the 'facts'.

That said, I honestly don't think your candidate has a chance of winning. He's a nice guy and all. And even if he was/is a better candidate, with a better plan, your average Ohio voter is one every unhappy camper. It's a tough time to be an incumbent.
