Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal appeared on Morning Joe Friday, where he decried negative ads against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, chalking them up to the Obama campaign’s inability to run on President Barack Obama‘s record.
“I think,” he said, referring to topics like Romney’s dog incident, “the America voters are smart enough to sift through that nonsense and realize this is about two different visions.
This what is was remarkable to me. Up until now, this President has been a gifted speaker. He’s been able to change the polls just by giving a great speech; he’s been one of the best speakers in my adult lifetime watching politicians give speeches. The speech in Ohio, nearly an hour long, fell flat. Same old, same old policies that haven’t worked.
He’s basically… it was, we went from hope and change to divide and blame. Now all of a sudden he’s trying to run against President Bush, eight years too late for that. He’s offering the same old policies and now trying to divide us based on class lines, on race lines, on gender lines, and any lines to help him get re-elected, so, absolutely I think the American people aren’t better off.
