CORALVILLE, Iowa – Mitt Romneys foreign trip may have gotten off to a shaky start in London, but popular conservative Govs. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Bob McDonnell of Virginia on Thursday lent their help to his stateside campaign, traveling across Iowa to fire up Romney volunteers and make more hay of President Obamas you didnt build that comment to business owners.
The governors planned four events today spanning Iowas eastern half to bolster Romneys candidacy. Continuing what has become a common GOP attack line, both tore into the presidents remark earlier this month in reference to people who have benefitted from government investment in roads and bridges.
Its a staggering comment, and its not out of context. What it is — its out of touch and it shows an administration I think thats out of ideas and really out of time in order to restore the American dream and build economic prosperity in our country, McDonnell said while speaking to workers at Per Mar Security in Davenport.
Jindal, in Coralville, said Obamas comments reveal something about how our president thinks.
