Gov. Bobby Jindal: Obama Weakened U.S. military

CBS News reports that “Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal became the latest Republican to offer up a sweeping policy plan that could help anchor a 2016 presidential campaign.”  

“Jindal on Monday outlined his alternative vision, that he says will save the American military from damage done by President Obama: spend more on defense.”  

“‘[Obama] leaves for the next president tools of hard power that have fallen into disrepair. Military strength should not be the primary means by which the United States executes its foreign policy. But it is the indispensable element that underpins the other tools,’ Jindal said during a speech at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) in Washington, D.C. He said he supports recommendations by AEI, a conservative think tank, to spend about 4 percent of America’s gross domestic product on defense.”
