Kasich Speaks From Two Sides of His Face At The Same Time

Kasich tells supporters of religious freedom laws: 'Get over it'

"What I'd like to say is, just relax," Kasich said on CNN. "If you don't like what somebody's doing, pray for them, and if you feel as though somebody is doing something wrong against you, can you just for a second get over it? You know?"

Kasich's comments were a reply to a question about his harsh reaction to Mississippi's new law that allows companies not to serve gay couples. Last week, Kasich asked "What the hell are we doing in this country?" in reaction to that law.

Kasich did say Sunday that his first reaction as president would not be to take specific steps to stop states from passing those sorts of laws. But he then advised people on both sides to "calm down" before looking for quick-fix legislative answers to this complex problem.

[...]"There is a legitimate concern for people being able to have their deeply held religious beliefs, religious liberty," he said. "But there's also people who we shouldn't be discriminating against. We need to have a balance."

"And I just wish that everybody would just take a breath and calm down, because you see, trying to figure out how to legislate that balance is complicated and you keep doing do-overs, because nobody gets it right," he said.

"So if we just kind of calm down here, I think things would settle down," he added.

So. We need to wait for the Governing Class to negotiate a plan on how to compromise our principles in order to normalize every aberrant behavior which generates Leftist votes. Got it. Bottom line: aberrants win over anyone's moral principles. There is no behavior which is actually aberrant EXCEPT those with BADTHINK. And it is BADTHINK which the government will "regulate". They are doing that at this very moment, as the rogue Attorneys General attack Anthropic Global Warming Deniers. Evolution Deniers would logically be next, since the government already has a court decision against them.

I would assume (incorrectly, obviously) that anyone astute enough to state ". . .because nobody gets it right." would be capable of realizing that the elites are not ever going to get it right, no matter how many times they go back to the drawing board.

Would anyone care to ask Gov. Kasich if he can give us a square circle through this same compromising process? Surely this is within the same realm of possibility as reconciliation of two irreconcilable positions through political compromise. All we need to do is just "take a breath and calm down."

After all, when confronted by an enormous pile of government manure, there has to be a compromise pony around there somewhere producing all of that manure.

Where's Hercules when we need him to clean out the Washington stables? Oh, 'scuse me - paging The Donald!

I'm such a Pollyanna!
