Skip to comments.GOP Looks to Louisiana's Governor ("Next Reagan-Obama"?)
Posted on 11/29/2008 8:14:06 PM PST by Wegotsarah.com
-- Last weekend, 18 days after Barack Obama decisively defeated their candidate for president, a mostly Republican crowd of self-described conservatives received their first introduction to someone many prominent members of the GOP think could be the party's own version of Obama. [snip}
No less an aspiring kingmaker than Steve Schmidt, the chief strategist of McCain's failed presidential bid, sees Jindal as the Republican Party's destiny. "The question is not whether he'll be president, but when he'll be president, because he will be elected someday." The anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist believes, too, that Jindal is a certainty to occupy the White House, and conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh has described him as "the next Ronald Reagan."

Who cares what Steve Schmidt thinks?
There are three names on my list.
Hunter. Palin. Jindal.
Steve Schmidt? The guy who brought us Arnold Schwarzenegger and John McCain? Good reason not to support Jindal.
WAITAMINUTE!!!!!!!!!!! Why listen to losers/whiners/incompetent fools like RNC consultants?
Steve Schmidt needs to be working as an assitant dish washer.
Why are Reagan and Obama in the same sentence, much less hyphenated? Last time I checked, Reagan brought down the USSR. What the hell has Obama done? He’s not even in office yet. Good Gosh.
If Jindal does a good job as Governor of Louisianan, we just might want to consider him.
Ahnold blew it as Governor.
I sure am glad that I have people like Palin and Jindal to look forward to, now we need to push aside the republican hangers on like Romney and Huckabee and that ilk.
What has he done? I am not against the guy, but people keep running out names and I get a little cynical given how many times the GOP has screwed conservatives.
Not that I give a Schmidt what Steve thinks, but when I’ve seen Governor Jindal speak, I have been very impressed with him.
not good enough.
Say what? English please!
let me see...
he’s more palatable to the country club pubies than governor sarah palin
because he has a degree from oxford?
You put Sarah Palin and Bobby Jindal on a ticket together, that’s UNSTOPPABLE right there
Sarah Palin/Bobby Jindal=UNSTOPPABLE FORCE!!
Just because Schmidt sees potential in Jindal doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t, either. Rudy and Olympia Snowe supported Sarah Palin. Does that mean that Sarah is suddenly a pro-abortion RINO?
because he’s a conservative with a degree from Oxford.
If the party elites can’t have a RINO standard-bearer in 2012, they’ll settle for a conservative they can manipulate.
Sarah Palin would tell the RNC to shove it if it tried to take over her campaign.
Perhaps they think Bobby Jindal is more pliable.
