John Kasich: Neanderthal

* Those of us that live in Ohio know that Gov. John Kasich is not known for having many women in his cabinet or in management positions.  If you doubt Kasich's opinion of women, let me inform you.

Raw Story:

Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio said Wednesday at a Romney campaign rally that his wife was at home doing laundry while he gave political speeches.

“You know, Jane Portman, Karen Kasich, and Janna Ryan, they operate an awful lot of the time in the shadows,” he said in Owensville, referring to the wife of Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, his own wife, and the wife of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, respectively.

“It’s not easy to be a spouse of an elected official,” Kasich continued. “You know, they’re at home, doing the laundry and doing so many things while we’re up here on the stage getting applause, right? They don’t often share in it. And it is hard for the spouse to hear the criticism and to put up with the travel schedule and to have to be at home taking care of the kids. And where is the politician? Out on the road.”

Right.  Kasich believes that women should be home, doing the laundry, scrubbing the floors, etc., while men rule over them. Kasich proves once again that his conservative views are prehistoric.
