GOP: Clinton Compromised, Obama Can Too

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 (UPI) — A former senior Republican congressman now governor of Ohio, John Kasich, said President Obama could take a lesson from former President Bill Clinton.

In the party’s weekly media address, the former chairman of the House Budget Committee who took office as governor in January decried the partisan divisiveness in Washington that’s created financial havoc amid fears of another recession.

Kasich said his administration has worked on a bipartisan solution to eliminating Ohio’s debt while still cutting taxes.

Speaking of the bitter political divide in Washington surrounding the country’s more than $14 trillion debt, Kasich referred to his experience in Congress when Democrat Bill Clinton was president.

“Sure, we had our fair share of gridlock back in the 1990s,” He said. “Our differences may have been stark, but President Clinton and his team worked with us so that we could do what was best for the country.

“There’s just no substitute for leadership from the president of the United States.”

Meanwhile in Obama’s weekly address, the president expressed similar views, saying Washington politicians needed to “put aside their differences to get things done.”
