Mike LaFaive, director of the Morey Fiscal Policy Initiative, told The Saginaw News that President Obama’s State of the Union speech reminded him of Gov. Granholm.

“It was almost Granholm-esque in many parts,” LaFaive said. “I found that these investments in clean energy rang hollow to me.”

LaFaive did say he liked parts of the speech.

“I was surprised that only got a smattering of applause,” LaFaive said regarding President Obama’s promise to veto bills containing earmarks. “I’m wondering who could be opposed to that.”
