Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal released a statement Tuesday blasting President Obama as an "inept commander in chief. Jindal, who may run for the GOP nomination for president, criticized Obama's willingness to dismiss the Iranian supreme leader's "death to America" exhortations as "political rhetoric" while publicly criticizing the campaign rhetoric of Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.
“I realize President Obama is accustomed to misleading the voters, but he shouldn't assume Middle Eastern tyrants use words as loosely as he does. He’s acting like this is no different than ‘if you like your health care plan you can keep it,'" said Jindal in his statement. “At the same time, the President and his minions are becoming more and more hostile to Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel. The White House Chief of Staff is now saying they cannot 'simply pretend' that comments the Prime Minister of Israel clarified never happened.
Jindal continued: "“How did we get to a point where the White House believes the Iranian Supreme Leader’s comments about ‘death to America’ are just political rhetoric, and we don’t take the word of one of the leaders of our strongest allies? It’s simply because President Obama doesn’t value the strategic and historic bond between the United States and Israel. This President can sit at a negotiating table with folks who say ‘death to America, but cannot sit at a table with the Prime Minister of Israel. He’s an inept Commander-in-chief."
