WASHINGTON (AP) - Gov. Bobby Jindal is defending his harsh criticism of President Barack Obama within yards of the Oval Office, saying "in America we don't have a king."

The Republican was criticized by a Democratic governor Monday after Jindal emerged with others from a meeting with Obama and said the president "seems to be waving the white flag of surrender" on the economy.

Jindal tells MSNBC Wednesday the White House "belongs to the people" and he had a duty to speak his mind.

During Monday's remarks by governors in the White House driveway after the meeting with Obama, Connecticut Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy took over the microphone from Jindal and responded sharply. Malloy told reporters, quote, "Wait a second, until a few moments ago we were going down a pretty cooperative road."
