Your post doesn’t meet the expectations your headline creates.

“A few months ago, nationally-syndicated talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that Jindal was the “next Ronald Reagan.””

Is that right? Rush Limbaugh said that Bobby Jindal is the next Ronald Reagan? Let’s see if Rush’s archivists can bring that one up for a replay and as usual, I’ll be listening.

I remember Rush speaking of Jindal, said he was a good Conservative, also mentioned another one. I don’t remember the “next Ronald Reagan” bit though.

Bobby Jindal is the closest thing to a genuine Reagan conservative that we currently have in the Republican party. In a very short period of time as governor in Louisiana, he has initiated and implemented more conservative policy than someone like John McCain has done in his decades of Senatorial sell-outs. Also, Jindal can actually talk, he can actually articulate his positions with clarity, unlike Bush, McCain, Bob Dole, and the other incredibly mediocre ‘leaders’ our side has run out there over the past decade-plus.

If Rush needs to apologize it should be for being too gentle on the Dimocrats.

Here it is....

“Bobby Jindal. I did an interview with Bobby Jindal. He is the next Ronald Reagan, if he doesn’t change. Bobby Jindal, the new governor of Louisiana is the next Ronald Reagan. He’s young. He was just sworn in for his first term. He’s the guy that beat the liberal Democrat machine throughout Louisiana. He did it on 100% conservatism. We interviewed him for The Limbaugh Letter about three issues ago. In fact, I am hereby ordering the editrix of The Limbaugh Letter, Diana Schneider to make — since it’s a past issue — the interview with Bobby Jindal in The Limbaugh Letter available at RushLimbaugh.com this afternoon. You can send it up to Koko as a PDF file or text or whatever you want. This guy could be the next Ronald Reagan. If McCain chose him, here’s a Southern state; this is Louisiana, but I think he may be too conservative for McCain. That depends on who they think McCain will need or want, but Jindal is very young, and he’s only in his first year as governor and doesn’t really have... He came from the House of Representatives. Also being talked about is Haley Barbour, the governor of Miss’ssippi, but it is said by those in touch with the conventional wisdom that Haley’s got too many lobbyist ties for McCain. These are some of the names. There are others that I can’t think of right off the top of my head, but they’re out there. But I don’t think it would be Newt.”

If the Louisiana state legislative pay hike goes into effect without any action being taken by Gov. Jindal, then how is it “his fault?”

In response to a caller on Feb 8, 2006 discussing possible McCain VP picks, Rush did in fact say that Jindal was the next Ronald Reagan, “if he doesn’t change.”

It means that spit is not the only thing (”matter”, in this context meaning some type of material) that they are flinging.

I would guess that the other to which he refers rhymes with spit.

'Bobby' should have vetoed the pay raise!

The savings could have been passed along to the league of stupid Louisiana citizens who are incapable of fending for themselves.

Perhaps they could use the money for useful items like i-pods or, better yet, navigational devices so they can locate their backsides.

Jindal can easily kill it. But he won’t because he wants to keep his mandate on track. Basically it is legislative extortion and Jindal is paying up.

Rush Limbaugh:

"Bobby Jindal. I did an interview with Bobby Jindal. He is the next Ronald Reagan, if he doesn’t change."

Well, there you go. Jindal must have changed then.

No apology needed from Rush, although I'm wondering if the whining phuckwits screaming for an apology from Rush would prefer to have a crook like Edwin Edwards running Louisiana again?

If that's the price to pay for moving the state in a more conservative direction than so be it. Such a pay hike is more directly tied to the legislators than the governor anyway, and if voters are angry they can take their frustrations out on the legislators.

The blog post is somehow trying to make the link between Rush praising the governor and the actions of the Louisiana house of Representatives. Lots of leaps there. LoL.. you can tell Jindal may be in the running for VP, bashing articles are starting.

"Bobby Jindal is the closest thing to a genuine Reagan conservative that we currently have in the Republican party."

Having heard what Rush said, which came in response to a question, this is a perfect summation.

The local news media have been naming all those legislators that voted for the raise. It will be interesting to see if any get kicked out of office. For me, I think it was inevitable that they got a raise, and it is probably a small price to pay if we can actually get some good legislation passed.

It’s just nice to have someone on our side who can speak. I am astounded by the mediocre verbal skills of most politicians. My God, it’s a profession where speaking, public speaking especially, is vitally important. Just further evidence that the best in our country don’t gravitate to politics.

Vetoing a pay raise for legislators passed by those same legislators is not a good way to get one’s radical (for Louisiana) conservative agenda passed. Hey, it’s politics.

From Artical: "Jindal issued a statement about the raise saying:"

"I still disapprove of this pay raise. While I’m glad they reduced it, it’s still more than a doubling of their pay, which I believe is excessive."

"I will not veto [the raise]…."

Not knowing the political makeup of LA I imagine the reason he won't veto is because they have enough votes to overide his veto.

Ok, he reduced it from “is” to “could be”. That’s fair.

Remember when ESPN’s Chris Berman (sp?) apologized for Rush’s commentary for which he was hired to provide and subsequently fired for? 2+2=?
