Washington: Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal has launched yet another attack on the US President by alleging that Barack Obama's re-election campaign message is "divide and blame" and not "hope and change" of his 2008 campaign.

"In 2008, President Obama campaigned on a message of 'Hope and Change'. (On) Thursday, speaking in Ohio, the President announced his re-election campaign message of 'Divide and Blame'," Jindal wrote in an op-ed on the CNN website.

Jindal is said to be among those shortlisted as the Vice President running mate of Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

The first Indian American governor of a US State, Jindal said Obama cannot ask Americans if they are better off than they were four years ago, and so is trying to blame others for his record.

Over half a million fewer Americans have jobs today than when he took office, he charged.

"After his advisors projected that his $800 billion stimulus bill would keep unemployment below eight per cent, it has remained above that benchmark for a record 40 months and counting.

"Median family net worth has hit a two-decade low, median household income has declined, more than 30 per cent of borrowers are underwater on their mortgage, 23 million Americans remain unemployed or underemployed, and half of college graduates this year come out of school unemployed or underemployed," he said.

This is for the second time in less than a month that Jindal has launched a scathing attack on Obama.

Early this month Jindal alleged Obama's administration is a nexus of liberalism and incompetence.

"The Obama admin(istration) is at the nexus of liberalism and incompetence and together that’s a deadly combination," Jindal said in his remarks at the Chicago meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference.

1: Brave man,Bobby Jindal to take on Obama.Is there a racial element to it,some would say and think.Indeed,in east africa and south africa,many Indians helped the freedom struggle of majority africans including a prominent sikh,who formed a wokers union and was jailed and branded a communist and the british authorities wanted to deport him to india but he refused by saying he was a kenyan citizens like Obamas dad and granpa and all.but at independence,the once considered a terrorist,Uk educated from kikuyu tribe who was supposed to be supporting under ground Mau mau who killed many innocent folks,didnt want indian influence but more european british culture and took over indian college named after Ghandi and is now Nairobi university.hence,is there an agenda by judo christians and africans to keep indians down even if they are christians like Bobby Jindal some would say and ask and ponder?indeed,as Armed forces day is commomerated in uk,there is no mention or inclusion of indian units in the display or thansk giving when majority of victoria crosses were won by indian troops,three million of whom volunteered fro allied cause in 2nd world how does one sqaure the circle against prejudice against Indians in uk,europe,middle east,africa and america,australia,canada,fiji etc etc.
