How do Governor Kasich's experiences of governing compare to those of Cruz, Trump, and Rubio?
Of the four, Kisich is the most qualified to be president. The following is a list of his accomplishments:
"As a congressman, Kasich was known for his leadership as the chairman of the House Committee on the Budget, where he was the lead architect of the 1997 balanced budget deal. It was the first time since 1969 that Congress and the White House brought the budget into balance. As a result, America’s financial ledger went from -$163 billion to a surplus of more than $236 billion."
"His good economic judgment caused the state’s “rainy day fund” to skyrocket from $890,000,000 to $1.5 billion, providing greater fiscal cushioning for future leaders of Ohio."
"When John Kasich became governor, Ohio’s unemployment rate was an astronomical 9.4 percent. Over the course of his first term, Kasich championed policies that fostered the creation of nearly 317,000 new jobs in Ohio, dropping the unemployment rate to just 5.1 percent, the number which economists deem “full employment.” In 2012, Ohio was ranked the fourth best state for job growth in the U.S."
"Kasich is helping individuals with mental illness by increasing the availability of health care, expanding housing options and investing in services that save lives. In addition, Ohio has invested in early childhood mental health and crisis services for families, with the goal of helping families get the services they need before a crisis happens."
" As governor John Kasich cut taxes expressly for low- and middle-income Ohioans, created Ohio’s first-ever Earned Income Tax Credit and doubled its value the next year, all with the goal of helping all Ohioans keep more of what they earn."
As an aside, Kasich has not run a negative campaign, and of all the Republican candidates, his record in office has the highest rating. He is a good man who talks policy. He also understands foreign policy quite well.
This list only begins to list his John Kasich's accomplishments. Cruz and Rubio are "new" senators, and as such, have had little experience. Trump has no experience, and he is an egoist to boot.
What is the history of Governor Kasich's relationship with the Pentagon, and as the Commander in Chief of the Ohio National Guard?
The sequester doesn’t matter to him in that he wants to reform the Pentagon, but he is against across-the-board cuts. My understanding is that he wants to spend where needed & not spend where not needed. Is that inaccurate? I'll check into the Gu

Will the RNC run 3 candidates Trump, Cruz & Kasich?In 1836, the Whigs ran 4 candidates against the Democrats. The goal in 2016 may be to block the Democratic nominee from winning an electoral majority by running the Republican candidate in each state most able to win there. If the Democratic...

If anyone at all "won" the Republican debate on 2/13/2016 (or not) name the top three in order.My own impression: Trump came across as having learned nothing, or even as not wanting to win the Republican nomination. Kasich came across as the winner, followed in a Rubio and Carson...
