NEW YORK – Insane. Childish. Disaster. And those were some of the kinder comments from political pundits about Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and his response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress on Tuesday night. Jindal, 37, a Rhodes scholar and son of Indian immigrants, is considered a rising star in Republican ranks and a likely 2012 presidential candidate.

GOP leaders, looking for a fresh face for the party's image, tapped Jindal earlier this month for the high-profile task of rebutting Obama's first address to a joint session of Congress.

But in both style and substance, Jindal's speech has drawn flak from Republicans and Democrats alike.

When you are trying to explain anything to an Obama supporters you have to dumb it down as if you were talking to a six year old.

Title: Liberal Republicans, Fascists criticize Jindall speech.

Just like Palin, they see a prospective threat-they destroy it.

Be afraid.

As reported by AP/Obama.

They are actively trying to destroy our 2012 top contenders before they even begin.

Palin, now Jindal.

Look for an unending torrent of vitriol from the media re Jindal and Palin and Kantor for the rest of their political lives.

They are scared to death of them.

Exactly...you know the left is worried when Republicans pop up in soundbites and film clips on inane entertainment programs like The Soup. A Bobby Jindal clip was shown right after one of the Slumdog Million children was shown on screen. So typical.

I am sick of all this carping on Jindal! When has any other non-SOTU (or SOTU for that matter) response ever in history been given this type of attention. LAYOFF GOV. JINDAL! Republicans especially should cut it out! When do you ever see liberals attacking their own?

In the 1870s Rhodes laid the foundation for his later massive fortune by speculating in diamond claims, beginning pumping techniques, and in 1880 forming the De Beers Mining Company. During this time he attended Oxford off and on, starting in 1873, and finally acquired the degree of bachelor of arts in 1881. His extraordinary imperialist ideas were revealed early, after his serious heart attack in 1877, when he made his first will, disposing of his as yet unearned fortune to found a secret society that would extend British rule over the whole world and colonize most parts of it with British settlers, leading to the "ultimate recovery of the United States of America" by the British Empire!

i have seen Jindal speak in person and I saw him in the SOTU Response.

What you saw on Tuesday night was Bobby at his worst, I am not sure what was wrong but everything from his message to his delivery was terrible.

In person, in a room of people Bobby is great.

Can’t say I was ever impressed with young, bright eyed and busy tailed conservatives. They tend to be naive in their own way, and in some respects not unlike their counterparts of the left.

Some seasoning and maturity will bring them a long way, but that takes time.

It doesn’t surprise me that they would break for ‘Man Tan’ Mitt Romney.

People who “talk good” don’t impress me. I prefer people who just get the job done and can’t be bothered with just telling you what they are going to do. Shut up and just do it!

Well, it must be bad if Juan Williams didn't like it. I didn't hear Jindal’s speech but it couldn't have been bad if it claimed government is the problem and it can't be trusted. Why doesn't the AP quote Anne Coulter and Michael Savage to get the democrat reaction to an Obama speech? There's nothing but a bunch of dishonest lowlifes at the AP.

David Brooks is the libs’ favorite “conservative”. The man has no understanding of economics or the engine of the economy, business.

Bobby Jindal can govern but he's not too great making love to a Tele-Prompter.

Obama is great making love to a Tele-Prompter but he can't govern.

Given the choice, the American electorate, their brains fried by American Idol, will vote for the latter.
