Louisiana governor and potential Mitt Romney running mate Bobby Jindal is campaigning for Mr. Romney in Iowa today and he also held a press conference call with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell where they slammed President Barack Obama’s “failed economic record” and “misplaced priorities.” Mr. Jindal began his remarks by slamming the president as “incompetent” and inexperienced.
“President Obama is the most liberal and incompetent president since Jimmy Carter was in the White House,” said Mr. Jindal. “The reality is, he’s a great speaker.
