Kasich: If Someone Said Obama Was a Muslim, I Would Correct Them

‘I would correct them immediately and frankly, it’s — the president is an American, I believe the president is a Christian’

KASICH: "You know how I would react, Jake. Look, I ran for reelection and I don’t even know that I uttered the words — the name Barack Obama. And you — you don’t hear me saying much about it. I don’t agree with him, but I don’t believe those things. And if somebody said that, I would correct them immediately and frankly, it’s — the president is an American. I believe the president is a Christian. And enough of that. You know, I just don’t like that kind of rhetoric. So I may not agree with the president on many issues, but I sure respect the office and, you know, and I respect the man, even though I don’t agree with him so much — so much of the time."
