Charlotte: Unimpressed by US President Barack Obama's fiery speech seeking re-election, the two Indian-American Governors, Nikki Haley and Bobby Jindal, today said that Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, is the best person to lead the country. Both Jindal, the Governor of Louisiana, and Haley, the Governor of South Carolina, are rising stars of the Republican party and were quick to issue statements after Obama concluded his Democratic presidential nomination acceptance speech.
"The last time Barack Obama spoke before the Democratic National Convention, he told us of hope and change that we could believe in. What a difference four years makes," Haley said.
"Today, with Americans around this country hurting, with 23 million of our family, our friends, and our neighbors struggling for work, empty words and empty rhetoric of the kind we heard tonight will no longer sway us," she said.
"We need leadership, and we need a plan for a real recovery. Where President Obama has failed to lead, Mitt Romney will act. He has a comprehensive plan to get our economy going again and generate good jobs for everyone who seeks them," Haley said.
"We aren't better off than we were four years ago, but with Mitt Romney as president, we'll have a much brighter story to tell four years from now," she added.
Jindal, who is still battling the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac that hit his State last week, said Americans across the country know that they're not better off today than they were four years ago.
"No amount of lofty rhetoric, promises of hope, or appeals for more time can make up for three and a half years of disastrous economic policies that have left millions of people out of work, underwater on their mortgages, and struggling to stay out of poverty," he said.
"Our country needs and deserves better - and that demands new leadership in the White House. Mitt Romney knows what it takes to create jobs and grow the economy, and he has the experience and the plan our country needs to get back on track," Jindal said.
However, Dr Syed Taj, the Indian-American Congressional candidate from the Democratic party in Michigan said that Obama spoke to the essence of America in his speech.
"He not only highlighted the clear policy differences between Democrats and Republicans on jobs, Medicare, Social Security, health care, and national security, he reminded us of what makes our nation great and brings us together as Americans," he said.
"His eloquence was matched by the power of his words and positive results of his actions. I am proud to join him in fighting for working families and a forward looking vision for our nation," Taj said.
That Democrat needs to get out more and look at the boarded up shops and people lined up to get food stamps
I think it’s noteworthy that while both Haley and Jindal have fairly normal sounding names, the MI Dem nobody’s name reeks of multiculturalism and terrorism. He has a very strange idea, not held by any mentally sane Americans, that welfare programs are what makes this country great. Welfare proframs may be fine and dandy in India, but in America we value entrepreneurship and rugged individualism, not tax giveaways to the lazy poor.
I got news for you....there are NO welfare programs in India and China. Could be the reason their economies have doubled in GDP in last 10 years.
Syed Taj is a Muslim.
Jindal's first name is Piyush. And Haley's maiden name is Nimrata Randhawa. So yeah, they both Anglicized their names. Would the Democrat's message be more palatable if he went by the name Chuck Taj?
Americans of Indian decent tend to be small businessmen and entrepreneurs. So it isn’t surprising to me that they would also tend to be Republicans.
By not changing his name, he demands that his host country adapt to him. Haley and Jindal chose to adapt to America. Anglicizing ones name may seem insignificant to some, but it is actually very important in a nation where the illegal invaders think that they can force us all to learn Spanish.
His message would still be foolish if he did Anglicize his name, of course, but not Anglicizing his name is typical of a person who wants to force everyone to conform with his Stalinist ideals.
Gee. I thought Marco Rubio and Alberto Gonzalez kept their first names out of attachment to their ethnic heritage. Who knew that they were demanding that we adapt to them and learn Spanish? The fiends.
