RedState Gathering: Gov. Bobby Jindal (R, LA).
We’re always happy to hear from Gov. Bobby Jindal, and after the speech that he gave last Saturday* (as I noted at the time, you could see the crowd collectively thinking Why, Bobby here would make a perfectly good Vice President) he took a few moments to talk to me about… you know. Stuff**. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RS Q&A: Gov. Bobby Jindal, on the Medicaid expansion.
I was on a conference call today with Governor Bobby Jindal and former Governor Tim Pawlenty; they are both currently on a bus tour of Pennsylvania and Ohio for the benefit of the Romney campaign. We had an opportunity to ask questions; and, seeing as these two states are both Republican-controlled (due at least in part to the 2010 backlash against Obamacare), I asked Governor | Read More »
Libtalker Randy Rhodes spews anti-Indian racism like so many teeth.
You know, I have a problem with the way that somebody ambushed Randi Rhodes and got her to make racist and prejudiced comments about the governors of Louisiana and South Carolina. It’s just… cruel to do that to an alcoholic on a bender; when you have somebody with an existing history of being found face down in the gutter with the recent contents of her | Read More »
Lousiana Senate Chess: Bill Cassidy hires Timmy Teepell. For 2014?
Tuesday, the news came out: Rep. Bill Cassidy (R, LA) has hired Timmy Teepell for his 2012 re-election campaign. If you’re wondering why I’m telling you this, this is why: Cassidy is a two-term Congressman who won almost 2/3rds of the vote in the last election (and did not get hurt by this round of redistricting) and Teepell is the guy behind Bobby Jindal’s 2011 | Read More »
Reminder: primary deadline in Louisiana tomorrow.
We’re in day two of the three day qualifying period for the gubernatorial primary, you see. Another reminder: the only person that the Democrats have had so far who is willing to stand up and publicly oppose Bobby Jindal is… Tara Hollis, schoolteacher. She is not particularly expected to win – but there’s nobody else right now, and that situation is being repeated all the | Read More »
It’s July 14th. Where are the D candidates for LA-GOV?
Aside from Ms. Tara Hollis, of course – note that I’m not going to make fun of her for running. I could, but there’s something endearing about meeting a Democrat who actually still believes that her party is really committed to democracy and egalitarianism and anything else besides the creation and perpetuation of a paternalistic nanny-state run by people who think that they’re too smart | Read More »
Bobby Jindal’s steadily-advancing re-election.
55 has two major meanings, in fact: First off, it’s ‘merely’ Governor Bobby Jindal’s approval rating in Louisiana last year – and unchanged, six months before the election*. Second, it’s the number of signatures on the latest recall petition against Jindal – a petition that expires next week. If you look at the above Politico article from December, you might suspect that the Politico author | Read More »
Gov. Bobby Jindal (R, LA) gives up on waiting for BP/WH.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) Given that the leak hasn’t been plugged yet, and given that the Gov. Jindal has a state to look after, this isn’t surprising. Eight weeks into the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of the Mexico, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has told the National Guard that there’s no time left to wait for BP, so they’re taking matters into their own | Read More »
Legions of Editors & Fact-Checkers Watch: The Atlantic poll cherrypicking.
(H/T: Instapundit) The Atlantic’s Chris Good, on Governor Jindal’s (correct) observation that polls show that the public does not support the Democrats’ health care plans: Of the most recent, reliable, non-partisan major polls–a Sept. 12 Washington Post/ABC survey, an Economist/YouGov survey released Sept. 15, and a Sept. 25 NY Times/CBS poll–only the first shows Americans opposed to Democratic plans (48 percent to 52 percent); the | Read More »
NRCC raises 6 million in March Dinner.
Bobby Jindal can draw a crowd, it seems. NRCC raises $6 million for annual dinner The National Republican Congressional Committee raised more than $6 million for tonight’s annual March Dinner, surpassing its goal for the event. 95 percent of the GOP House Conference contributed to the event, the committee announced. For those following at home, that will mostly wipe out the NRCC’s existing debt, assuming | Read More »
Yes, Zachary Roth, we know: Bobby Jindal’s skin color offends you.
Get over it, and stop with the one-handed typing on this story. Contra your increasingly wild-eyed protestations to the contrary, this story started with your pet failed sportscaster babbling about Bobby Jindal being 75 miles from New Orleans, mostly because he’s just smart enough to read what people like you put in front of him, and too dumb to read a map. And now that | Read More »
My take on the speeches.
Obama: more than competent technical delivery. A lot less Bush/GOP bashing than might have been expected, although I missed the last fifteen minutes or so. He needed to smile more, he needed to talk more about hope, and he needed to convince me to save less every month and spend more. He failed in that last bit. IOW, he need Full Metal Unicorn, and didn’t | Read More »
