Republican presidential candidate John Kasich snapped when he was asked during an interview with a group of reporters on why he only won a single state.

Last weekend, Kasich was discussing his chances of winning the primary battle in New York on Tuesday when Demetri Sevastopulo from the Financial Times interrupted, asking why he has only won Ohio – the governor’s home state – so far in the GOP primary.

At one point, Kasich, who was visually piqued by the question, grabbed Sevastopulo’s recording device and turned it back on the reporter.


“Listen, at the end of the day I think the Republican Party wants to pick somebody who actually can win in the fall…” Kasich began.

“If you’ve only won Ohio…” Sevastopulo butted in.

“Can I finish?” Kasich said testily.

“If you answer the question,” Sevastopulo responded.

“I’m answering the question the way I want to answer it,” Kasich said. “You want to answer it?”

Kasich then snatched Sevastopulo’s voice recorder out of his hand and turned it toward him: “What do you think?”

“I think you should answer the question,” Sevastopulo said.

    The “moderate Republican” alternative to Trump and Cruz, my ass. He’s as much of a thug as the rest of them. Fuck him.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
