It's the kind of partisan hackery that we've come to expect from GOP presidential hopefuls, but that doesn't mean it should go unchallenged and Dan Malloy, Connecticut's Democratic governor, was up to the task.
Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy rose to challenge Jindal immediately after he spoke to reporters, calling his remarks on Obama waving a white flag “the most insane statement I’ve ever heard.”And after the event was over, Malloy didn't walk away from his criticism:
”Here’s a guy who didn’t come to any of the meetings except this one today, and has the nerve to pull that stuff on everyone—ten feet from the West Wing,” the Connecticut governor told TIME. “He doesn’t pay his dues to the organization, he doesn’t come to the meetings of the organization, and then he wants to swing for the fences for obviously political reasons. I didn’t mind pushing back.”Good for him.
