Jindal: Obama administration at ‘the nexus of liberalism and incompetence’

“The Obama admin is at the nexus of liberalism and incompetence and together that’s a deadly combination,” Jindal said. “[Obama] ran a clever campaign in 2008 … but the reality is he has governed as the most liberal president since Jimmy Carter.”

Jindal said Obama’s handling of the economy was an example of his extreme liberalism.

“The private sector is so foreign to [Obama], he might need a passport to go visit the private sector,” Jindal said, adding that “he might need a translator” to speak with people in the private sector, and saying the administration was “lurching” America toward European-style socialism.

Jindal, who will participate in a fundraiser for Mitt Romney following the event, said the “radical left has taken over the Democratic Party,” and that the Wisconsin vote this week to not recall Gov. Scott Walker was an example of Americans rejecting the liberal philosophy.

“[The recall election] was nothing more than a case of sour grapes by the radical left,” Jindal said, while hitting Obama for not campaigning for Democratic challenger Tom Barrett for “fear of losing.”

Jindal said the president’s handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill was an example of is “incompetence,” accusing the president of relying too heavily on bureaucrats in his energy department instead of listening to average Americans on the ground.

“We put a guy in the White House who has no experience running anything,” Jindal said.

Many believe Jindal’s record on education reform makes him a strong candidate to join the Romney ticket, and he also focused on these issues Friday, ripping teachers unions for their “elitist arrogant attitudes.”
