Consider the Associated Press Underwhelmed…

It’s always interesting to read the post-mortems on speeches like the one Ted Strickland gave yesterday.

My favorite came from MSM standard bearer, the Associated Press:

The state’s dire economic situation was the focus of the State of the State address today, as Gov. Ted Strickland proposed modest initiatives and a number of new committees aimed at pulling Ohio out of the recession.

New spending programs are typically a hallmark of a governor’s annual address to lawmakers. The best Strickland could do was a $40 million investment in green energy technologies funded largely with federal dollars.

I don’t think they’re that impressed, Ted.
