MADISON- Democrats say Gov. Scott Walker is in denial after he said in his State of the State speech Wednesday that Wisconsin is in better shape under his leadership than before.

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller says Walker didn't lay out a vision for the future but instead recounted his failures of the past.

Democratic state Rep. Jon Richards of Milwaukee says he was disappointed with the speech and he hoped to hear Walker talk about bills that Democrats support that could create jobs.

But Republican lawmakers say Walker gave a good speech that made a strong case that Wisconsin is in better shape now than a year ago.
