Bobby Jindal's Attempt To Take Down Obama Fails Spectacularly

US Republican governor Bobby Jindal tried to provide some snarky commentary on President Obama's 2015 State Of The Union speech, by quipping he could sum it up in a single tweet.

Unfortunately, the Louisiana governor's attempt to get one over on the president was completely undermined by a big fat grammar mistake.

In his post mocking that he could "save you 45 mins" by boiling down Obama's address to several flippant points, he added "your welcome", instead of the grammatically correct "you're welcome".

The error was swiftly picked up by critics online, including news website Bipartisan Report which highlighted the fact that one of Obama's "free" initiatives that Jindal slammed in the tweet is free community college - something Jindal's English skills suggest he could make use of himself.

Jindal's tweet was retweeted nearly 2,000 times, as commenters wasted no time correcting the mistake.

Jindal is the same politician who was in London this week insisting that Britain is full of "no-go zones" where non-Muslims never go.

The Republican, who is considering running for president himself in 2016, said in a speech in London this week that some immigrants are seeking “to colonise Western countries, because setting up your own enclave and demanding recognition of a no-go zone are exactly that.”

Jindal is no stranger to commenting on the President's annual address. In 2009 he provided the official Republican video response, which has just been named by USA Today as one of the five worst State of the Union responses in recent years.
