On this test, 100% is an F.

Ohio’s unemployment numbers for May were released this morning. And Ohio keeps circling the drain.

The ‘holy crap!’ statistic from today’s news was that unemployment under Ted Strickland’s Administration has doubled since he took office, from 5.3% in January of 2007 to 10.8% in May of 2009.

For the math disadvantaged, that’s an increase of over 100%.

Does anyone believe things would have ever been this bad had Ted Strickland not been asleep at the wheel?
