There is something about Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, I just don’t like.
He grates on me.
Perhaps, it is because he thinks he is smarter than everyone else?
In any case, calling the GOP “STUPID” and saying that 2016 Presidential aspirants need their heads examined is a non-starter for me.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said Monday that Republicans already thinking about the 2016 presidential race need “to get their head examined” because the party is just beginning to recalibrate its messaging in the aftermath of President Obama’s reelection.
“Anybody on the Republican side even thinking or talking about running for president in 2016, I’ve said, needs to get their head examined,” Jindal told “Fox and Friends.” “And the reason I say that is, we’ve lost two presidential elections in a row, we need to be winning the debate of ideas, then we’ll win elections.”
Jindal, considered an early front-runner for the Republican nomination, said that the party’s struggles despite polling showing a desire for smaller government was evidence that a reboot was necessary.
I don’t think Jindal will need to have his head examined, since he is going nowhere, but representing the state of Louisiana.
Slow Joe Biden at his best
Say it ain’t so, Joe. Because you are wrong to the point of another GAFFE.
Giving the republican response to President Obama’s speech Tuesday night, Governor Bobby Jindal pointed out fundamental differences in how republicans and democrats see the economy.
“But what I don’t understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do?,” asks Joe Biden while on the Early Show.
That rhetorical question to Governor Jindal on the Early Show, was followed with this.
“in Louisiana there’s 400 people a day losing their jobs, what’s he doing?” asks Biden.
But that claim is wrong, if you look at the numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission.
“In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release that added employment over the month,” says Patty Granier with the Louisiana Workforce Commission. According to her, not only is Louisiana not losing jobs. “The state gained 3,700 jobs for the seasonally adjusted employment,” Granier said of the most recent figures.
You don’t even have to take my word for it, these are number you can check out yourself if you just go to laworks.net, there you can find the latest unemployment statistics, statistics that appear to directly contradict what the vice president said this morning.
The GAFFE MACHINE that keeps on giving.

Chris Matthews last night on MSNBC
Now, after his “Oh God” crack was revealed, Chris Matthews of MSNBC has issued a clarification:
I was taken aback by that peculiar stagecraft, the walking from somewhere in the back of this narrow hall, this winding staircase looming there, the odd anti-bellum look of the scene. Was this some mimicking of a president walking along the state floor to the East Room?
Antebellum means “pre-Civil War.”
So, is Matthews making a jaded remark related to Jindal’s southern accent, being from a deep southern Confererate state, Jindal is non-white and the fact that he is criticizing the first African-American President?
Take your pick – all of the above.
Ace has more about this “outsourced” comment from this further Matthews commentary on Jindal’s response.
Chris Matthews thinks GOP Outsourced The State of the union response to Indian Bobby Jindal. In every area that was touched on, they had to get an outside guy. They had to outsource the response tonight, the Republican party. They had to outsource it to someone who had nothing to do with Congress because the Republicans in Congress had nothing to do with the programs he was talking about tonight or the record he referred to.
