Bobby Jindal: Obama is running against Bush, and it’s only about eight years too late for that

It’s Friday, and I don’t know about you, but it never hurts my mood to finish off the week with an extremely apt, intelligent, yet biting bit of criticism about how President Obama’s policies are running our country into the ground — especially when Team Obama is busily engaged in blaming President George W. Bush for everything from all of our economic woes to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. So, without further ado, here’s Republican governor of Louisiana and oft-mentioned Romney-running mate possibility Bobby Jindal with some appropriately scathing commentary to take us into the weekend. Preach, governor:
“Over half a million more Americans are unemployed than the day the President took office,” he said. “You look at median income, it’s actually gone down under this President. You look median family worth, two decade low. You look at home owners with mortgages, 30 percent of them are underwater. So, you look at any objective economic indicators we are not better off than we were four years. And I think if the voters go in the booth asking themselves that one question — Am I better off than four years ago? — I think Mitt Romney wins this election going away.” He also dismissed Obama’s immigration policy as mere “pandering” that ultimately treats “the symptoms, not the root cause of the problems.” …
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.
