The Jindal VP Swindle, A RINO in Pachyderm's Clothing
Bayoubuzz.com ^ | June 15, 2012 | Jeff Crouere

Posted on 06/15/2012 3:53:06 PM PDT by Marketfly1

In the past week, the Bobby Jindal for Vice President Campaign has moved into hyper drive. More pro-Jindal-as-VP columns have been written, but this time from smart, but seriously misguided, Louisiana conservative columnists.

Incredibly, for a Governor who has spent the past five years constantly traveling the country, he has hit the campaign trail even more in 2012. Every week, he is out of the state raising funds for the GOP, collecting political IOU’s, and establishing his name recognition among that influential power base, top Republican donors. In recent days, he has traveled to Virginia and Illinois and plans to go to West Virginia next week.

No freaking way. No Rubio either. Romney is so loathesome that the only way I could ever, every even slightly consider voting for him is if there is a real conservative on fire VP.

With a non-NBC RINO-esque VP, Romney could even lose against 0mugabe. I can only assume that the RNC/GOP would rather lose to 0mugabe than have a real honest conservative as Pres. Disgusting.

Jindal is not a factor. He brings no electoral votes. The vp will come from a state that can help the candidate get elected.

Jindal can’t be VP. He doesn’t fit the “Natural Born” criteria. His parents were both born in India. Rubio is the same. His parents were born in Cuba. They will not make the short list.

I'm not sure where the writer is getting some of his information from. Take his criticism that (in his words) the schools are ranked at the bottom. According to state by state SAT rankings, Louisiana is nowhere near the bottom:

State Education Rankings:
Louisiana SAT Scores
Critical Reading SAT Score: 563 (Ranking 18)
Math SAT Score: 558 (Ranking 17)
Writing SAT Score: 555 (Ranking 16)
Total SAT Score: 1676 (Ranking 18)

At the same time, it wouldn't be surprising if LA's test score results were at the bottom of the rankings - as a former slave state, LA has the highest % of blacks of any state in the country, at 32% of the population, compared with the runner-up AL, at 29%.

That’s old school thinking that no longer applies. Look at the last 3 GOP VP candidates. Kemp, Cheney and Palin brought nothing to the table electorally. Cheney listed Wyoming, a 3 electoral vote state to avoid being from the state as G.W., and Palin likewise brought 3 electoral votes to the game. Jack Kemp hailed from a giant state that Republicans knew he could not and would not deliver.

It’s not that their parents were born in other countries, it’s that their parents were not US citizens at the time Rubio and Jindal were born. If their parents had become naturalized citizens at the time they were born, they’d be in. But such was not the case; their parents naturalized after the births, in both cases.

do you think a real conservative vp would RUN anything in a romney administration..no he would just be tainted when he has to run after romney is finished....this is just bad all around I am almost wanting obama to win, the collapse will happen sooner. I would rather get it over with instead of having romney drag it out. let romney pick a rino

You may be right. Just as Clinton pried away a few Southern states for the Democrats by choosing Gore as his running mate, Romney may end up choosing Christie or some other other non-red state RINO to fish for votes outside of GOP strongholds in the South. His dilemma is that his Mormonism, combined with his political apostasy, may not guarantee his hold on the South, so he may need to pick someone like Jindal. In addition, it's actually arguable that Romney by himself is enough of a RINO to appeal to the blue states, without needing a RINO running mate, no matter how the media attempts to paint him as this extreme conservative.

You are right. The vomit factor with Romney is so severe I just can’t imagine voting for him. He is the very epitome of loathesomeness.

Jindal fails the NBC test (natural born citizen), and I believe Rubio may fail it also.

This country has been turned upside-down, disregarding the Constitution, and now we are blessing the illegals with benefits bestowed Constitutionally ONLY on Citizens. We need more lead.

i know its like some of these people think the president is suppose to be a dictator and the vp is the mini dictator..so if a rino is selected for president I WONT vote for him unless he select a conservative dictator as vp. being a vp is the perfect job for biden he is incompetent and he is in charge of nothing.

Fact: Obama’s father was not US citizen ever.

Fact: Obama is officially elected president of US and
almost done with his 1st term in office, running
again for 2nd term.

Therefore the meme about Jindal & Rubio’s parents is irrelevant obfuscation and a total waste of time.

“His parents were both born in India.”

Doesn’t matter where they were born. What matters is that they were NOT US citizens when little Bobby (Marco) were born.

NBCs need not be the offspring of other NBCs.......

Jindal gives me heartburn. He would not be the spark that would get me to vote “for” Mittens.

And having just spent a few weeks in Louisiana...not sure how anyone can think things are going great.

Lastly...maybe it’s just me...but why don’t some of these gov’s stay in their own state and get things done? What’s with all the outside travel? Who’s paying for it and why don’t they get a pay deduction for not doing their freaking job?

Rubio’s parents were not US citizens when he was born. Neither one is a NBC. But even if Rubio’s ancestors all came over on the Mayflower he’s still vilely unconservative.

What you say makes no sense. You seem to be saying that just because 0mugabe is not a NBC but still finagled his way into the WH, then that opens the doors to anyone else who also may not be a natural born citizen. But you say that as though it’s a good thing.

Anyway, your assumption about 0mugabe’s parentage may be proven wrong pretty soon.

Even if Rubio and Jindal were NBCs they are still not conservative presidential material.

Getting electoral votes never goes out of style. Jindal is no Palin or Cheney. Dole / Kemp was a ridiculously stupid ticket anyway.

We are actually on the same page, but looking at it differently. I don’t like either that O’Blamo (as Rush now calls him) is sitting in the White House. However neither the SCOTUS or the congress has done anything to remove him from his perch.

Last time I heard those 2 bodies have more power than any of us at FR. In this case unfortunately they have established a definite precedence that Hawaiian (?) born O’Blamo is NBC enough.

As for who is best candidate for VP, I follow Ronaldus Magnus’s advice...vote for the most conservative who is ELECTABLE.

“The vp will come from a state that can help the candidate get elected.”

Agreed, neither Jindal nor Rubio do Mitt any good with numbers and they are both ineligible. All it would do is create chaos as the lawsuits would start immediately. We don’t need that going on this year. Its going to be Portman from Ohio or maybe Mcdonnell from VA or someone who can help in a swing state.

What a weak article, which can be summarized as “Jindal is ambitious! Therefore he’s a RINO!”

Reagan traveled a lot too, collecting IOU’s all across the country. Like it or not that’s how it is done.

“A Louisiana university” has a very low graduation rate. Which university? The Covington College of Cosmetologoy? Wow, that’s all you got? The writer of the article can’t even name the school (Alzheimer’s or laziness?). In most states the Governors do NOT run the University system, maybe the Governor in Louisiana appoints the board of the unnamed secret university, but I doubt it. This guy just doesn’t like Jindal, and is grasping at straws.

The only “precedent” that has been set it that no one in the universe has any standing, and also that the SCOTUS is “evading” the issue.

And no one who is conservative is running. Maybe that will change. If Romenypuke really is the candidate, a poorer and less conservative candidate could not be found.

You mean candidates like O’Donnell, Hoffman, Angle? All fine conservatives, just can’t win elections. Losing candidates can’t effect any change. Again, like Reagan said, vote for the most conservative candidate who can get elected.

Doing research on “natural born citizen” using sources that predate 2007 will show a clear understanding of the phrase. There is no ambiguity or misunderstanding inherent concerning natural born. Those sources will clearly show that Obama, Romney, Santorum, McCain, Jindal and Rubio are not natural born citizens.
There have been many changes to online sources, with malicious intent, to subvert the constitution and the law. Those making such changes should receive harsh punishment.

Well golly gee, so many are just now figuring this out. The GOP rino elite are or lean towards being Fabian socialists. While the Fabians are content with moving slowly towards the type of socialist/communist government they want, they are not about to reject that government if brought to them by the revolutionaries Obama and friends.

Even with the GOP putting up their weakest and easiest to beat candidate, The election in November will be a squeaker no matter which looser wins.

Kemp, Cheney and Palin brought nothing to the table

What all three brought to the table was gravitas which their running mates lacked.

Obama was not the president, is not now the president and never will be the president. In the future historians will write about and analyze the years without a president,09 through 12.
There is a silver lining to the recent past. Obama’s attempted destruction of this nation has prompted the start of a purge of the Fabians and similar slime from politics. This purge if continued will in twenty years result in a strong and revitalized nation where socialists/communists are properly ridiculed.

Sorry for my lack of clarity - I didn’t mean you were rubbing my face in it - reading the news rubs my face in it. I am despondent and angry that the GOP establishment is not the friend of Constitutional conservatives. At all. They’ve made their positions crystal clear.
