Strickland's 'Scorecard'

From the Dayton Daily News:

If elected governor, Democrat Ted Strickland wants Ohioans to know what kind of bang they're getting for their taxpayer buck.

Strickland, a U.S. House member from Lisbon, on Monday announced he would create an annual "State Results Scorecard" to be displayed on the state Web site with information on how state dollars are spent and an evaluation of results.

Carlo LoParo, spokesman for Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, Strickland's Republican opponent, said the proposals sound like ideas Gov. Bob Taft has "rolled out in previous years."

"Ohio's economy is sinking and Ted Strickland proposes rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic," LoParo said. "He won't cut taxes and he certainly won't make Ohio's economic environment attractive to job creation."

Far be it from me to react cynically to a Strickland proposal, but why does the phrase "useless propaganda" come rushing to my mind?

And Bob Taft has?

Don't look at me; I called for Bob Taft to resign after he raised taxes.

The last thing that we need is more of the same. Remember:

Ted = Taxes!
