Rescuing banks, overseeing natural disasters, managing your healthcare, pick your problem…still the 9 most terrifying words in the English language(oft cited by Ronald Reagan): “We’re from the Government, and we’re here to help.”
Any relationship between Ohio Governor John Kasich setting a bad precedent by seeking federal aid as a last resort after recent tornado devastation…and then being denied it when it is genuinely needed? You don’t mess with Mother Nature, you don’t tug on Superman’s cape, and you don’t turn down Big Brother when He wants To Help You. As with the Mafia, Big Government’s message remains “Don’t refuse an offer you can’t refuse.”
Only days later, after sending a personal request for aid to President Obama, he is soundly rebuffed and denied aid. Coincidence?
