Ohio Gov. John Kasich took to the airways this Sunday morning and was allowed by CNN's Dana Bash to pretend that both Republicans and Democrats have a problem with intransigence among their ranks. Sorry Governor, but there is no equivalence on the left to the group of extremists that decided to pretend they've never heard of George W. Bush and tried to rebrand themselves as the so-called "tea party" on the left.

Secondly, to repeat the lie we hear told over and over again by the right, that Democrats didn't reach out to the other side of the aisle when they were trying to pass the Mitt Romney and the Heritage Foundation's Republican health care plan, otherwise known as the Affordable Care Act.

Now that his party has shown themselves to be completely incapable of governing, Kasich wants his party to reach out to the other side, and told Bash that effort might "begin to marginalize the extremes."

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) got heated during an interview on Sunday, saying it is “pathetic” if Democrats and Republicans can’t work together to successfully pass major legislation like healthcare policy.
