Jim Inhofe and the Problem With Kasich Math

Source: Conservative Review | 17 March, 2016 | Robert Eno

Is it any wonder that the nation is on the precipice of a fiscal crisis, every single year?  Perhaps it is because her senators cannot do simple arithmetic.  Take for example Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK | C Liberty Score®) and his support for John Kasich for the presidency yesterday.  This support came the day after Kasich was mathematically eliminated from the nomination. 

To recap, John Kasich currently has 146 delegates. 1237 delegates are needed for the nomination.  Contests have been held in a number of territories and states that have awarded 1463 delegates.  There are 2473 delegates all together.  

This support came the day after Kasich was mathematically eliminated from the nomination.

Since the senior senator from Oklahoma is apparently incapable of doing so, let’s do the math for him.

2473 – 1463 = 1009 delegates left.

146 + 1009 = 1154 delegates.

1154 < 1237 delegates.

John Kasich cannot amass enough delegates to become the nominee of the Republican Party on the first ballot in Cleveland.  It is that simple. 

Maybe that’s why senators like Inhofe see nothing wrong with passing increases in spending, less than inflation, and few real spending cuts.  They can’t do simple math.

    Maybe we should give any candidate for US House or Senate a basic skills test to see that they qualify for the position. After all, if legal immigrants have to pass rigid tests to gain citizenship to the USA, then our elected officials should have AT THE VERY LEAST the same qualifications.

    This alone might disqualify some of the them from running. One only has to listen to some of these brain-dead sycophants who get access to a microphone to realize that they have no clue whatsoever about the subject they are speaking on. And, possibly they would be disqualified on ANY topic they chose to speak.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem
