Quote: Get on the Kasich bus or get out of the way

“If you think you’re going to stop us, you’re crazy. You will not stop us. We will beat you … This is our chance. Please leave the cynicism and political maneuvering at the door … If you’re not on the bus, we’ll run over you with the bus. And I’m not kidding.”

John Kasich, Republican and governor-elect of Ohio, said at a luncheon for state lobbyists.

This is coming from the person who voted to ban LGBT people from adopting, to suspend habeas corpus in death penalty appeals and to give federal aid only to schools allowing voluntary prayer.

Kasich also said: “We will listen to you. If you think we’re doing something that really doesn’t make sense, tell us … If you think that I’m going in the wrong direction, stop me. I don’t want to drive over a cliff. I just want to be a good governor.”

Given his “get on the bus” comment, I’m thinking this sentiment is mostly lip service.
