Bobby Jindal is the governor of Louisiana and a man with eyes on the White House.

As a 2016 campaign becomes more of a reality, liberal pundits have started bashing Jindal's ideology. Here are four examples:

Urgent: Do You Support Bobby Jindal for the GOP Nomination? Vote Here Now

• “Obviously, Jindal, like other Republicans, is so used to blaming Obama for everything and constantly claiming he is tearing up the Constitution that he can’t keep his story straight. Remember, Jindal is the man who said the Republicans need to stop being the stupid party.” – Justin Baragona on Politicususa.com

• “Sadly, Mr. Jindal seems more intent on burnishing his conservative credentials for a presidential run than in serving the interests of students.” – Washington Post Editorial Board in an opinion about Jindal’s efforts to roll back the Common Core State Standards in Louisiana

Urgent: Who Should the GOP Nominate in 2016? Vote Here Now

• “To hear Team Jindal spin it, he has turned our state from a fetid backwater into a shining beacon of commerce and efficiency. A more objective view would posit that Jindal's legacy is one of corruption, vacillation, and missed opportunities.” – Clancy DuBos for Gambit

• “In Louisiana Mr. Jindal is pushing a plan to eliminate the state’s income tax, which falls most heavily on the affluent, and make up for the lost revenue by raising sales taxes, which fall much more heavily on the poor and middle class. The result would be big gains for the top 1 percent, substantial losses for the bottom 60 percent.” – Paul Krugman, New York Times Op-Ed columnist, using Jindal to represent how Republicans are changing their rhetoric but not their actions concerning the rich and the poor
