Truth & Rumors: Ohio governor slams Joe Biden's liberal handicap
Clearly, no holds are barred at the GOP Convention in Tampa, where Ohio Gov. John Kasich attacked Vice President Joe Biden via his golf game.
"Joe Biden told me that he’s a good golfer, and I played golf with Joe Biden, and I can tell you that’s not true, as well as all the other things that he says," Kasich said during his convention speech. Check the video below, via ABCNews:
It's one thing for these guys to attack each other over Medicare, Medicaid, fiscal policy, social issues, how to read the Constitution, but if golf is tossed into the octagon, then nothing is sacred anymore.
Kasich was referring to an ill-fated pairing with Biden in a $2 match against President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner that occurred last June, according to the Washington Post:
A Biden-Kasich team did lose to a President Obama-House Speaker John Boehner team at golf last year. But Boehner is known as a formidable golfer, so it wasn’t exactly a fair fight. The speaker later told reporters that his fellow Republican was so nervous about the match, “I thought John Kasich was going to cry.”
In Biden's defense, the vice president, an alleged 6.3 handicap, was giving his boss 11 shots. According to the article, Kasich and Boehner both carried 8 handicaps at the time.
But just you wait. It's only a matter of time before some Super PAC picks up on Biden's liberal handicap. Expect some hack commercials.
