Washington: Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, a likely running mate of Republican Presidential candidate, has hammered President Barack Obama for trying to distract voters from his record by distorting Mitt Romney'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. 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," Jindal said speaking at a Romney's campaign headquarters in Ohio.
"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 at the campaign headquarters here.
Jindal, who appeared with Romney earlier this week at a fundraiser in Baton Rouge, 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 News 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 (President of the United States), never ran a lemonhead stand, never ran a business, never ran a state," he added.
