Boehner Says Romney Losing Ohio Because Gov. Kasich Did Such A Good Job Improving The Economy There
According to House Speaker John Boehner, John Kasich did such a good job improving Ohio’s economy that voters are not going to vote for change at the presidential level. So, when the economy is good it’s the governor gets credit, and when it’s bad the president gets blame.
“It’s been a close race in Ohio; it’s going to be a close race in Ohio,” Boehner answered. “One of the things that probably worked against Romney in Ohio is the fact that Gov. Kasich has done such a good job of fixing government regulations in the state, attracting new businesses to the state, so our unemployment rate in Ohio is lower than the national average.”
He did not mention the auto bailout championed by the president and opposed by Republicans down the line, which helped avert massive job losses in the Buckeye State’s automotive industry.
