It’s a shame Ted Strickland wasn’t this passionate about keeping jobs in Ohio

Remember just a few days ago, when I said this?

Yes, Ted Strickland, you are a sore loser.

The Columbus Dispatch concurs, with this rather blunt headline.

“Rejection at the polls”. Ouch.

Ted is fired up about Senate Bill 5. He’s getting personally involved and fighting with everything he has to keep it from passing.

Too bad he could never get himself so agitated over Ohio’s attractiveness (or lack thereof, rather) to businesses. We could have used that kind of fire in his belly to keep so many jobs from leaving for other states.

Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine agreed,

“The only thing Ted Strickland demonstrated today is that he still doesn’t get it,” Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine said. “If he had put this much energy into job creation during his time as governor, maybe today’s event would have been a rally to welcome a major employer to the Buckeye State instead of a reminder of the failed policies of administrations past, especially his.”

It’s pretty obvious to everyone isn’t it? When it came to fighting for Ohio, Ted was a timid governor. Threaten the privileged status of his public union donors, and then he finds his fury.

No wonder the voters rejected him.
