Jindal, Walker denounce Romney’s ‘gifts’ comments

November 15, 2012

Two Republican governors shot down Mitt Romney's comments about the "gifts" President Obama gave key constituencies to ensure their votes. 

Those remarks were "absolutely wrong. We have got to stop dividing American voters," Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Wednesday at a news conference at while attending the Republican Governors Association Conference in Las Vegas. "I absolutely reject that notion, that description. . . . We’re fighting for 100 percent of the vote.  

"That's not who we are as a party," Jindal added.  "We shouldn't view individuals as members of interest groups."

Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) chimed in, saying  the GOP isn't "just for people who are currently not dependent on the government... It's for all Americans," and is the party "that helps people find a pathway to live the American Dream."
