Jindal greets small crowd of Romney supporters at Dan’s Maid-Rite
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal had to order his Maid-Rite sandwiches to go during a stop at the iconic Newton diner Thursday. But he did take the time to briefly discuss President Obama’s economic policies during the visit meant to bolster local support for Presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney.
“What’s at stake, I believe, in this election is the ability of our children to pursue the American dream,” Jindal said. “I think the president is a very nice man, but his policies simply haven’t worked for our country.”
At the 4:30 p.m. event, Jindal addressed approximately 25 people in the small loose-meat sandwich shop, avoiding personal attacks on the president and sticking to policy issues.
Jindal cited Obama’s record on the economy, specifically targeting the unemployment rate citing 48 straight months of the jobless rate hovering above 8 percent. The governor also criticized the president on increasing the budget deficit and national debt and increasing taxes.
