Strickland: Just as Bad as Obama

The State Directors of Americans for Prosperity New Jersey and Americans for Prosperity Ohio are responding to recent comments made by former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland regarding Governor Christie and Governor Kasich.


“This is the politics of personal destruction 101 - when you can’t criticize someone’s policies because they’re working; you criticize them personally. Governor Strickland has a lot of nerve nitpicking one or two alleged instances regarding the personalities of two Governors who are focused on trying to get their states’ economies back on track,” said Eli Miller, Americans for Prosperity Ohio State Director. “Strickland obviously cannot attack Governor Kasich’s polices which have been putting Ohioans back to work and improving our economy in sharp contrast to his dismal economic record as Governor. Strickland’s policies wreaked havoc on the Ohio economy, just like President Obama’s policies are currently making it difficult for people to find work and business to grow.”
In 2008 and 2009, while Strickland was Governor Ohio lost 420,000 jobs and the state’s unemployment rate rose from 5.7 percent to 10.6 percent. In addition when Governor Strickland left office, Ohio faced an estimated $8 billion budget deficit and credit agencies downgraded its credit rating.
“With a record like Gov. Strickland’s it is clear why he has resorted to an attack like this on Gov. Christie. Strickland followed the same policies former Gov. Corzine supported which led to New Jersey to have an unemployment rate of 9.7% when Gov. Christie took office,” said Daryn Iwicki, Americans for Prosperity New Jersey State Director. “If it weren’t for Gov. Christie holding the line against tax increases, taking steps to fix the pension system, and finding ways of putting New Jerseyans back to work, then our state would be far worse off than it is today.”
