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.

Say What? Joe Biden – 400 People a Day Losing Their Jobs in 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.

Is Chris Matthew’s “Oh God” Bobby Jindal Crack A Racist Jibe? What About Outsourced?

Posted 8 CommentsPosted in Bobby Jindal, Chris Matthews
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.

Shocker: Helen Thomas Bags on Bobby Jindal

Hearst White House columnist Helen Thomas poses a question to U.S. President Barack Obama during his first news conference as president in the East Room of the White House in Washington, February 9, 2009

Maybe Flap will reconsider his opinion about the Louisiana Governor.

Actually, Jindal’s presentation last night was poor, the substance of his remarks was OK and there was nothing fatal to his political career.

Louisiana GOP Governor Bobby Jindal and the Exorcism Story

Posted 3 CommentsPosted in Bobby Jindal
Louisiana GOP Governor Bobby Jindal’s exorcism

Jim Geraghty wonders if it is important today of all days to remember Republican Governor Bobby Jindal’s experience with an exorcism, dating back to 1994.

Since Jindal is being touted as the anti-Obama and the great GOP 2012 Hope in delivering tonight’s GOP response to President Obama’s faux State of the Union Speech, it is.

David Brody has more about Jindal’s story about demons and spiritual warfare.

Republican Bobby Jindal has a big moment tonight. The national response he gives to President Obama’s speech tonight could be the launching pad for a 2012 presidential run.

If the Louisiana Governor runs for President in 2012, he’ll have a lot going for him. Fiscal conservatives love him, social conservatives love him and he would literally be a fresh face for the GOP. Not your typical GOP politician if you know what I mean. Plus, he has the intellectual heft to go up against President Obama. But there’s one incident from his past that may scare some folks.

In 1994 when Jindal was in his early 20’s he wrote an article entitled, “Beating a Demon: Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare.” In it he describes being present for what many would refer to as a spiritual exorcism. It involved his best friend  at the time “Susan.”  It is a truly captivating read full of talk of demons, screaming, praying, crosses, peace, etc. In many ways the whole experience left Jindal with more questions than answers but you can bet that if Jindal runs this topic will come up big time.

The Brody File has read the entire article but had to pay $1.50. To do the same, click here. However, The Brody File has provided a major excerpt of it below. This is in Jindal’s own words and it is essential reading.

I’m sure some will read this and afterwards try to label Jindal as someone with strange religious views. But in typical Jindal fashion, he dissects the situation intellectually. He experienced something that clearly had a major impact in his life. Now if he does run for President, this incident will be under the microscope and he’ll be put on the couch by the mainstream media.

Read the piece and reflect.

Then, the Exit Question: Can Jindal transcend some pretty strange and scary religious practices to run for the Presidency?
