Bobby Jindal says he will not run for president in 2012.

"I'm not being coy at all. I'm not running for president in 2012. Period. No ifs, ands or buts, no caveats," the Louisiana governor told the Associated Press.

Jindal has been promoting his book "Leadership and Crisis," in which he criticizes the Obama administration for its handling of the Gulf Oil Spill. The White House firmly rejects Jindal's charges.

Jindal also lays into philandering politicians in a chapter titled "Men Behaving Badly," but he spares two important Republicans any criticism.
