Jindal On Obama’s Experience: He ‘Never Ran a Lemonade Stand’
abc ^ | 5/16/2012 | By Arlette Saenz

Posted on 05/16/2012 3:33:13 AM PDT by tobyhill

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal criticized President Obama‘s experience before he became president in an interview Tuesday, and defended Mitt Romney, who has recently come under attack by Obama’s campaign for his record at Bain Capital.

“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. This job’s too important for on the job training,” Jindal said during an interview on FOX News’ “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday.

Jindal contrasted Romney’s experience with Obama’s record, arguing that, “In contrast, Mitt Romney’s been a successful governor, a successful businessman. He’s got the executive experience.”

If Obama had a lemonade stand, it would probably be painted green, point towards Mecca, and have a stolen rainbow painted on it for some agenda other than that which the Creator designed it for.

Oh and there would be one for each of the 57 (well, 60) states. By his math.

He makes so many mistakes regarding America you’d almost think he was a foreigner.

Jindal is doing a darn good job as governor of the ungovernable state of Louisiana. How he gets elected is a mystery to me, since he looks like a guy who should always wear a green eyeshade, cuff protectors, and be perched on a stool going over reams of figures. Maybe those cajuns are smarter than they look when it comes to voting for the right guy.

However, fuggedabout national office as he is not, NOT, an NBC. Furthermore,the guy is a PR disaster who needs a couple of years in Toastmasters before he is allowed to say anything to any reporter.

BTW, has he ordered the State Police to arrest the Democrat operatives who assaulted the Republican convention attendees in NOLA?

You forgot to mention. If he had a lemonade stand, you better NOT drink any of the lemonade.

Hope and Change koolaid would be what he would serve.

I would be afraid of consuming anything Obama prepared... especially if he prepared it behind a closed door.

“Jindal is doing a darn good job as governor of the ungovernable state of Louisiana.”

You obviously don’t live in Louisiana. He puts on a good show when he’s out of town. If I judge him by his appointments I would say he is a Papa Bush liberal and and an opportunist, aka a politician not a conservative. He talks a good game but has no solution. I think he has more in common with Obama than Romney or Newt.

If he tried to open a lemonade stand, it would be as successful as his bid to get Chicago the Olympics

Actually, the Kenyan usurper reportedly worked in a Baskin Robbins in Honolulu (for which he applied for and received that Connecticut SSN), and he gave away ice cream to his friends when the boss wasn't around.

Not much has changed. Now he's giving away OUR tax money to his friends when nobody's looking.

That is what Christie is doing in NJ, and while he’s not popular on FR he is very popular in NJ (with all of the right people; he has all of the right enemies as well).

It is interesting with Jindal and Nikki Haley in SC because as Americans of Asian descent they may speak for a lot of business-minded people/cultures that it would help to have in our corner. Here in NJ Asians are probably the fastest-growing group behind Hispanics; they’ve revitalized their share of neighborhoods in Jersey City.

True! However, I did stay in a Holiday Inn once, and believe what I read on this site. That includes your cogent remarks, which will cause me to research this guy a bit further.

Good point. Another Obama failure that is forgotten and conveniently put under the rug.

If it was Bush or Reagan that tried the get the Olympics to their home town; would the reaction have been the same?
Hah hah...
Of course not. We would have heard two things. 1) They inappropriately used the influence of their office to try to get the Olympics. 2) They were a failure in getting the job done.

He has disappointed me greatly by having his parent’s pressure Indian friends to borrow money to finance his campaign. This information is from and Indian friend of mine who was pressured. If true, and I believe my Indian friends. The really supported him and are very upset with him for turning out to be “just a politician” who is interested only in himself. They also tell me that he accepted a lot of foreign money for his campaign funneled through local donors. He then selected a “Teach for America” liberal for State Superintendent of Education who has had very little education experience and is tied to several for profit school projects and most likely Soros. His supposed reforms are a joke all conservative sounding with no substance. He wanted to increase the contributions of state employees for their retirement. Most had no problem with that if it was going to shore up the retirement system. The problem was he intended to use the money for the general fund not for the retirement system. Most of his reforms don’t really reform they just make him look conservative to possible presidential candidates. Don’t cross him he doesn’t get mad he gets even. Lousy ethics and temperament IMHO.

Bobby Jindal himself has very limited private sector experience. He is a critter of the public sector. I am open to correction on this but going by Wikipedia that’s how it looks

That's a big plus, plus he seems genuinely interested in helping business and is pro-capitalism. He is pro-oil and gas and for the Louisiana energy industry. So despite being a gov't sector critter he is the opposite of commie Obama
