Bangalore: Bobby Jindal, the Indian-American Louisiana governor and the possible running mate of Romney is leading the Republican campaign against Obama, since the latter is on his 3-nation tour, reports PTI.
"The response here in Iowa on the ground has been enthusiastic and strong. People in Iowa are ready to make history again. Four years ago they gave President Obama a chance, he's not lived up to his promises," Jindal said. "Now the President got in trouble, few weeks ago he said, the private sector was doing fine, it was the public sector that needed help, then his aides had to come out and say, no he didn't really mean that," Jindal said. "It's not just these phrases, these speeches. The reality is, I think they reveal a lot about this President's thinking and his policies. The reality is he has grown government spending to 24 to 25 per cent of GDP. That's simply not sustainable," he said.
Jindal said: "President Obama has nothing new to offer - simply wants to try to tax, spend, and borrow away into prosperity. (Former Massachusetts) Governor Romney instead is offering a different path to restore the American dream, to grow the private sector economy so our kids will have even more opportunities than those we inherited from our parents." "I think the contrast is clear. The response here in Iowa on the ground has been enthusiastic and strong. People in Iowa are ready to make history again. Four years ago they gave President Obama a chance, he's not lived up to his promises," said the Louisiana governor.
According to Jindal, Romney is the best President the nation can have. He tells, "When he was Governor of Massachusetts, unemployment below the national average, per capita income grew faster than the national average.’’
