Washington: Indian-American Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal on Tuesday lashed out at US President Barack Obama, saying the incumbent can`t seek re-election on his record.
"This job is too important for on-the-job training. In contrast, Mitt Romney has been a successful governor, a successful businessman, he`s got the executive experience," said 40-year-old Jindal, a Republican and potential running mate for Mitt presidential hopeful Romney.
"President Obama simply cannot run on his record. The reality is 23 million Americans unemployed, underemployed, simply have left the work force. President Obama cannot ask the American people are you better off than you were four years ago?" Jindal said in an interview to the Fox news, the transcripts of which was released by the Romney Campaign.
"Well, two things. One, I think it goes to two themes of this campaign. One, it contrasts the fact that President Obama hasn`t run anything before he was elected President of the United States; never ran a state, never ran a business, never ran a lemonade stand," Jindal said in response to a question.
Jindal said Obama is going to have to savagely attack Romney.
"We`ve seen the start of that this week and now you`re seeing Mitt Romney respond which I think is a very good thing," said a confident Jindal.
