Malloy Jousts With Louisiana’s GOP Governor at White House

By Ana Radelat

“There are clearly differences here,” Malloy said of a three-day meeting of the nation’s governors in Washington. “But that’s the most partisan statement that we’ve had all weekend.”

Malloy was upset about Jindal’s comments about Obama’s wish to raise the federal minimum wage.

Jindal, a politically ambitious Republican, said Obama seemed to “be waving the white flag of surrender,” by promoting a hike in the $7.25-an-hour federal minimum wage.

“He is a guy who hasn’t come to any of the meetings and yet has the nerve to (criticize Obama),” Malloy said. “He’s not a member of the NGA … he doesn’t pay his dues. This was all political.”

How dare he criticize the administration

Wait, are you saying that no one should criticize the incumbent administration?

I’m guessing Mark’s being sarcastic, Judy.  At least that’s the way I “hear” it :)

Well, you’re probably right.  At least I hope so.  Maybe he’ll let us know.  :-)

I do love his photographs.  It seems he really puts his heart into each one.
