How big name endorsements for one Republican White House hopeful Texas governor Rick Perry receiving a nod from his fellow southern governor.
Louisiana and Bobby Jindal.
Now with some of Perry's Republican rivals picking up their own endorsements many are wondering if Jindal is looking for some kind of a spot in a potential Perry administration so let's ask the man himself governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana joins us first of all governor.
Why endorse governor pair.
And John thank you for having me.
For me it's pretty simple this this president pres Obama does not understand what it takes.
To put Americans back to work Cusick continued he's now introduced stimulus part two he wants to increase taxes he wants to -- government spending increased borrowing.
Governor Perry understands that the federal government doesn't create jobs.
He's got a proven track record in Texas over the last two years.
That created over 40% nearly half of all the jobs created in America.
Governor Perry understands we don't need to be raising taxes we don't need to be increasing government spending we don't have to be borrowing our way trying to bar way to prosperity.
Governor Perry understands that when the private sector -- job that's great for taxpayers when government creates jobs that cost taxpayers.
I think that is the essential issue and this -- upcoming election.
We've got a president who's never won anything before he became president United States he's clearly in over his head he doesn't understand how to get the economy back on track.
Governor Perry's been governor of Texas for almost eleven years he's got a proven track record is held the line on spending held the line on taxes.
He has helped to create jobs in Texas he will do that for our country well you've heard the other candidates up there on stage.
Taking their shots it and Governor Perry one of them Jon Huntsman the former governor of Utah who says he had a better record -- you talk of creating jobs and Governor Perry did.
You know that the amazing thing is Governor Perry in Texas may have to create jobs during one of the worst recession since the Great Depression despite the anti growth policies imposed by pres Obama texas' continue to buck the trend is done very very well.
Compared to other states per capita income group from last year to this year when you look at in migration people are moving -- their -- voting with their feet they know that Texas is a state where they're cutting back regulations.
They're not increasing taxes he was the first governor -- decades -- He is showing that with fiscally conservative principles we can bring that same common sense -- -- bring that same common sense to Washington DC.
Yet it's back on track I will say this and -- for governor -- I think -- be a great present he is the right person lead our party when -- all the candidates onstage.
I -- anyone of those would be an improvement over our current president.
This president's taking us in the wrong direction with his stimulus part two last week he -- simply doesn't get -- the first stimulus bill.
Didn't do what they promised us they would keep unemployment below 8%.
That's not true that hadn't happened he said that he had a plan to balance the budget.
Dead is now fourteen trillion dollars continues to grow.
Clearly this president isn't delivering what he promised American people is time to put America back and a new direction back on the right path to create jobs in the private sector.
Not government jobs.
Well the obvious question you are running for a second term as governor of Louisiana in 2011.
Lot of people speculated that you could be presidential material yourself.
Would you accept.
Some kind of an off and and a position in a Perry administration or some other administration if one of these other candidates were to defeat President Obama.
-- -- look I got the best job in the world I'm privileged to be governor of the great state of Louisiana were creating jobs are people here.
How we've turned -- we are turning our economy around despite the national recession.
The only I don't wanna job from Governor Perry -- Governor Perry to create millions of jobs my fellow Americans.
We still got more work to do and and Louisiana were on the right track Korea's -- southern business development ranked -- number one of the south for economic development.
45000 new jobs ten billion dollars in capital investment and economic development wins but we still got more to do right here in Louisiana.
I know one of the things you'd like to do down there is -- a little more oil where we have a story about that coming up governor Bobby Jindal -- lose Louisiana thank you for.
We -- -- Thank you for having me this morning.
