Kasich urges public school graduating class to serve “The Creator”
By Greg On July 15, 2011

Governor Kasich had quite the captive audience when he was invited to speak at the ECOT Graduation ceremony on June 11. We reported about the event when it occurred, and we all know everything is better with video, so when ECOT posted video of the ceremony online, we couldn’t wait to see it for ourselves. And, of course, share it with you. The Wall Street Governor listened to himself for nearly 20 minutes, but we have edited out the first 13 minutes where he focused solely on a personal story and jumped right to his big finish, the part of a graduation speech where advice is doled out.

Remember, this is a GRADUATION ceremony, not an event that advertised Kasich as a draw. These charter school (i.e., public school) students and their families worked hard to achieve this significant point in their lives. According the ECOT press release:

More than 2000 students from all over Ohio were eligible to participate in the ceremonies, making it the largest graduating class of any school in the United States.

  • He is just too much. Is there something in the water in Ohio, him and Boehner. Geez.
