Jindal on Obama: He ‘Never Ran a Lemonade Stand’

National Journal

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who has endorsed Mitt Romney and is sometimes mentioned as a potential running mate, attacked President Obama on Tuesday and defended Romney's record in business.

“President Obama hasn't run anything before he was elected President of the United States,” Jindal said on Fox News’s America’s Newsroom. “Never ran a state, never ran a business, never ran a lemonade stand.”

Jindal contrasted Obama’s record with Romney’s background as the founder of the private equity firm Bain Capital. “In contrast, Mitt Romney has been a successful governor, a successful businessman, he's got the executive experience.”

He added of Obama: “He is going to have to savagely attack Mitt 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.”
