CNN reported:

Red-state/blue-state rancor flared on Monday outside the White House between two governors – one with potential presidential aspirations.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, and his Connecticut Democratic counterpart, Dannel Malloy, squared off over the minimum wage after they and other governors met with President Barack Obama.

Jindal criticized the Obama administration for waving a “white flag of surrender” on the economy. Malloy labeled those comments the “most partisan statement” that the nation’s governors heard during their weekend of meetings in Washington.

“I think there are things we can do instead of waving the white flag of surrender, instead of declaring this economy to be a minimum wage economy. I think our economy, I think America can do better,” Jindal said at a news conference after the Obama meeting.

Jindal, who is term-limited and is considering a White House run in 2016, slammed Obama for his executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contractors to $10.10 per hour.

“Just one second,” Malloy said to Jindal. “Until a few moments ago we were going down a pretty cooperative road.”…

…Jindal didn’t back down, stepping back up to the microphone.

“If that was the most partisan statement he heard all weekend, I want to make sure that he hears a more partisan statement which is I think we can also grow the economy more if we delayed more of these Obamacare mandates,” he said.
