Bobby Jindal intensifies attack on Barack Obama
Louisiana's Indian American governor Bobby Jindal, speculated among Mitt
Romney's potential running mates, has stepped up his attacks on
President Barack Obama for allegedly distorting the presumptive
Republican presidential nominee's experience.
The president "can't run on his record. He can't run on his policies, so all he can do is attack Governor Romney," he told Romney supporters at his campaign headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, Wednesday.
"All he can do is distort his policies. All he can do is make up allegations, try to distract our attention away from his failed performance and the economy today," he was quoted as saying by ABC News.
"They've distorted what Governor Romney did as governor. They distorted what he did in the private sector. They've even gone after what he did in high school," Jindal said.
Jindal, however, made no reference to the vice presidential selection process, instead focusing his time on sharpening his attacks against the president, calling him "the most incompetent, most liberal" president since Jimmy Carter, ABC said.
"The president himself made some promises. Remember he said if he couldn't get this economy turned around in three years, it'd be a one-term proposition. Now he's broken a lot of promises. That's one promise I'd actually like him to keep," Jindal said.
"This president has never run anything before we elected him POTUS, never ran a lemonhead stand, never ran a business, never ran a state," he added.
Jindal, who joined Romney earlier this week at a fundraiser in Baton Rouge, has ramped up his appearances on behalf of Romney in recent weeks, but the two have yet to appear together at a public event.
