Skip to comments.George Will is wrong about Jindal for VP, Bobby only plays a conservative on TV
Posted on 04/06/2012 3:18:45 PM PDT by Marketfly1
In his latest column, George Will recommends that presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney choose Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal or Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) as his running mate. He claims that Ryan and Jindal have intellectual firepower, born of immersion in policy complexities, sufficient to refute Obama's meretricious claims and derelictions of duty."
Obviously, Mr. Will has been in the Beltway for far too long. While Congressman Paul Ryan might not be a bad choice, Will has been reading too many Jindal press releases about the supposed reforms inLouisiana.

I agree with you
You’ve been FReepin’ a hell of a lot longer than I...re-read post #7, MORON.
MORON. Misspelled. I recall the big moment for Bobby giving the Republican response to Bambi’s State of the Union address or some such (2011?) and he totally blew it. He’s also winmpy. As a Governor I like Walker from Wisconsin or Kasich from Ohio. At least they are putting their butts on the line for good change, and fight union entitlement Bobby just whines about no drilling in Gulf, no fishing, etc. Just DO it Bobby? Afraid they’ll get mad at you like Sheriff Joe?
Spoken like a true Democrat. I asked you to back up your attack on Jindal, and you can't even bother to make up something. You are attacking a man with names, but you refuse to give even a shred of proof. That sounds like a left wing thing to do to me. All name calling, all emotion, no reason.
Jindal is pro-life & socially conservative. He is fiscally conservative and has been fighting abuses by the unions.
Lavish praise? Do you also believe they lavished praise on Sarah Palin. When he made a major speech a few years ago, he was universally attacked by the media. Even though he is obviously smart, the media tries to claim he was an idiot. I have never see a mainstream media piece on Jindal that wasn't insulting.
Do you hate all conservatives? Which newspaper do you write for?
RE: Teachers protest...Jindal wanted 5 years instead of three for tenure. LET’S GO PROTEST!!!
When I ask for proof, and this is your response, I take that as an admission you were lying. You can't even make up a single accusation that he's not conservative. I'm glad you exposed yourself.
So you want the media to choose who should be Republicans? Do you also think that Romney is too ultraconservative to be president?
I’ll help ya out Cicero...Hey, Nick, your homework assignment is to research post #3 or #4, your choice and report back in 2 hours.
Research post #3, and google John Alerio, please.
WE HAVE TO SUPPORT WHOEVER RUNS AGAINST BAMEY NO MATTER WHAT....period...no question about it....
we have to have some skin in the game to affect change and if bamey wins again, we are out permanently....
All people see, and read of Jindal comes from the MSM, and it is all rosey. I could see Nikki Haley comin’ a mile away. Why can’t people see Jindal.
He is a political genius, just like BHO; he is not a conservative, just like BHO.
Jindal got eligibility?
Who is nickcarraway? Methinks Troll. I asked you to research, and you are just as lazy as Obamites. Don’t reply, a$$hat, as I will not argue with an idiot.
So what’s your beef with Governor Haley?
I have to mostly agree with SgtBob. I have been in LA most of my life.
While Jindal is a vast improvement over what we had, he is NOT what I would call a strong fiscal Conservative. Jindal does not have the desire to be bold on many fiscal matters.
Early in his first term there was a push to get rid of the State Income Tax. Jindal could have latched on and pushed the matter to success. He choose to essentially laugh it off.
There are a day or two each year when taxes are waived on 2nd Amendment purchases -- guns and Ammo. When the bill was presented, I believe the legislature going to offer to double the days for the tax waivers -- Jindal objected. He thought the state would lose too much money.
There are many things that could have pushed us more towards Liberty, but Jindal never pushed the envelope. He just does not see government as inherently evil.
I have studied Sarah extensively, I read all her books and books written about Sarah.
While Jindal has intellectual firepower, he does not have 1/100 the anti-government instinct that Sarah exhibits.
Sarah's libertarian Conservatism is much more aligned with Reagan. She sees government as a necessary evil.
Jindal is more like Paul Ryan, what I call a intellectual Conservative (can speak the philosophy well) but in action they both are at best technocrats who lean right.
I believe Jindal does not have in it in his DNA to ever approach the bold Conservatism held by Reagan and Palin.
You are resident of Louisiana, so it's your right to support Kathleen Blanco and Tara Hollis for governor over Bobby Jindal. But don't expect you can intimidate everyone into your opinion.
Thanks, sand, ‘tis kinda tough to FReep, watch grandkid, and grill Allen Brother’s...
One important thing from his first term...he was going to allow the legislature to give themselves a permanent annual payraise by not signing the bill, nor vetoing it. The people raised hell, and in the last hour he had no choice but to veto.
One important thing from this term is that he pushed the senate to name unindicted co-conspirator to Edwin Edwards, John Alario, Jr. hardcore demorat, to be the senate president.
You may need new eye glasses? The only thing similar between Jindal & Obama is the hue of their skin color. Jindal did not spend 20 years in the church of rev Wright who hates America, and did not begin his political career in the home of a radical leftist with terrorist background, one Mr. Ayers. We also know every detail of Jindal’s college grades and his writings, and his birth certificate is available for any one to see from the county of his birth. So quit making comparisons which do not add to your esteem as an unbiased poster.
