Things couldn’t have been too comfortable in the Republican congressional leadership on Debate Wednesday.
President Obama and Hillary Clinton weren’t the only targets for criticism from Republican presidential hopefuls, especially during the early CNN undercard debate.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal took direct aim at congressional Republicans, implying that since they took control of the House and Senate they have been unable to slow down Obama’s liberal agenda.
“Look, on Russia, across the world dictators walk all over this president. He treats our friends like dirt, he let’s our enemies walk all over us. The only group he’s able to out negotiate are the Senate Republicans,” Jindal said while discussing Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, reported the Daily Caller.
His criticism of beltway Republicans didn’t stop there.
While discussing recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives selling organs from aborted babies, Jindal blasted Republicans in Washington D.C. for not having the political will to fully defund the abortion industry.
“Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts across this country and the Senate Republicans have already given up, even without a fight. I am tired of this surrender caucus, I am angrier at the Republicans in D.C. than I am at the president. The president is a socialist. At least he fights for what he believes in,” he said.
Apparently the only thing more offensive to Jindal than a staunchly liberal Democrat president, are Republicans who refuse to wield their majority in an effective way.
Judging by the attention his criticism generated on social media, he’s clearly not alone. Or as one social media user put it, “that’s Trump’s popularity in a nutshell.”
@mericanrefugee that’s Trump’s popularity in a nutshell. Jindal put his finger on the one point that’s pissed everybody off. GOP sucks.

@MedvedSHOW Obama told us exactly what he’d do to (for) America and kept his promise. I can’t say as much for the Establishment GOP.

@MedvedSHOW In reality, Senate Republicans out negotiate themselves.
