VIDEO: Gov. Bobby Jindal on This Week With George Stephanapoulos



Despite his continued insistence that he hasn't decided whether or not to seek the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, Gov. Bobby Jindal appeared this morning on This Week With George Stephanopoulos to talk about this week's slapfight with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, the threat of ISIS, what Jindal called "the European nightmare" and other topics. 

Stephanopoulos asked Jindal about this week's dismal poll numbers out of Iowa:

STEPHANOPOULOS: I know you said you're going to decide about your own run next month, I wonder if you're being overtaken by events. The field continues to grow every single day. You don't seem to be getting any traction. The latest poll out of Iowa — you're tied for 14th. Is it too late?

JINDAL: No, George, a couple of things, on the Republican side, this will be an earned nomination. Unlike the Democratic side, this is not a coronation. I think voters want a big change. They want a president — not only a Republican president, someone who's going to rescue the American dream from becoming the European nightmare. President Obama is drowning us in debt, more government dependence, more regulations and more taxes. That's not the American dream. We need a president who's going to make big changes. I am the only potential presidential candidate that has offered detailed policy on health care, foreign policy, energy and education. We're offering detailed ideas about how to get rid of Obamacare.
