Bobby Jindal: Obama administration full of 'science deniers'

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) says the White House is packed with "science deniers" because of its reticence to move ahead with the Keystone XL pipeline, among other things.

"The reality is right now we've got an administration in the Obama administration that are science deniers when it comes to harnessing America's energy resources and potential to create good-paying jobs for our economy and for our future," he said at a Tuesday breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

At the same event, Jindal repeatedly sidestepped when asked if he believed in evolution and global warming.
