This is the question I was asked by John Finnerty, a Pennsylvania reporter. My answer was that in general, governor's will get too much credit when things are good and too much blame when things are bad. That said, I thought one specific policy where Pennsylvania's governor, Tom Corbett, deserves credit was his decision not to restrict fracking.
I also commented how government spending that is funded by tax dollars won't boost an economy.
