March 6, 2014--Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) opened his remarks with a broadside against President Obama:

"I want to start my remarks with a heartfelt and sincere apology, and I mean this.  You know I spent a lot of 2012 going around the country saying that President Obama was the most liberal and most incompetent president in my lifetime ever since Jimmy Carter.  Now having witnessed the events abroad these last several days, as we see the president of Russia invade a neighboring country while our president wants to downsize our military, while our president brags about the increased spending on food stamps.  Seeing a president that doesn't understand that a strong America leads to a peaceful more stable world.  Seeing a president who doesn't understand that a weak America leads to instability.  Seeing a president who doesn't seem to understand that our allies, our enemies alike need and want a strong America.  You know we have long thought and said this president is a smart man.  It may be time to revisit that assumption.  Or at least to make a distinction between being book smart and being truly wise.  And so today, let it be heard, and I hope he's watching, to President Carter I want to issue a sincere apology.  It is no longer fair to say he was the worst president of this great country in my lifetime; President Obama has proven me wrong." 

He focused his most of his remarks on "this president's assault on the American Dream, his assault on poor children in Louisiana, and his assault on religious liberty." (transcript)
