Skip to comments.Republican Response to The One- - Jindal - LIVE THREAD
Posted on 02/24/2009 7:14:01 PM PST by Jean S
Thank you! Some people on here don’t understand his speech is going after the undecides not giving Conservatives red meat and he started off just fine — actually pointing out he was BORN in the USA!
Jindal sounds much better on CNN then on Fox. Fox is messing with the signal. He is much better on CNN and I liked him before.
Don’t let anyone tell you that its best days are behind you. My kind of guy — optimism which is missing on this thread! American spirit has triumped over almost everything. We are Americans.
Jindal said don’t let anyone tell you that America’s best days are behind us, and American spirit will triumph again.
“Dont forget the mentality of the obamabots he is trying to reach. He has to speak slowly and with inflection to make sure they understand. Conservative values are tough to explain to an entitlement mentality.”
Don’t forget he also has to use small words. :)
Wow you guys are tough crowd.
I think the people who attack people Jindal or Palin tend to be holier than thou people who lives in the past. Also they tend to be either DU trolls or third party trolls.
This is his speaking style. His content is very good, he is very intelligent, but the delivery could be better. But he is a very good conservative.
That was my first thoughts. He sounds like he's talking to children. Of course, we must consider the target audience. The average voter these days has the IQ of a lamp.
On substance Jindal did a good job. On presentation, however, not so good.
Not too many people do. He could be the best speech deliverer (notice I didn't say speaker, his extemporaneous skills are weak) since Hitler.
How much do want to bet that Jindal will be Saturday Night Live's big target this week?
I like what Jindal is saying, I’m just not sold on the way he goes about saying it. I guess I’m guilty of hoping the next Ronald Reagan will surface. Someone who captivates me with his conservative countenance and conviction.
He is getting in some pretty tough attacks on the Dems. This is good. I am tired of the “work together” talk, especially when it comes from our side.
They could have selected a random freeper to give a more inspiring rebuttal. What weak tea.
Cross between Algore and Mr. Rogers. This isn't gonna work. Fizzle.
Agreed. Jindal is terrible tonight.
I really like Gov. Jindal more all the time.
I’m sorry...I cannot support Jindal...if he is our “next” leader, then I’m going to look for property in New Zealand.
He has absolutely no charisma!...
Now THERE ya go!!!!
Yeahhh...I also learned early on never to mention Jane Fonda’s name within earshot of him, otherwise he’d be cussing for the next half hour at least...
It worked in Star Wars!
Sorry for my lack of understanding, but it sounds like MY receiver was jammed!
Thought he did well...
You can’t be serious. He’s head an shoulders above Palin who will never see national office.
Everyone has to remember, the response speaker is at a distinct disadvantage. He’s not speaking to an auditorium with repeated applause and reactions from a crowd. It’s strictly informational rather than dramatic.
Just gotta keep it in perspective. If Jindal were speaking to a responsive crowd, he would’ve sounded much more impressive.
Jindal has time to work on his delivery. This is a preliminary warmup (redundant I know).
I agree, he sounds horrible. It’s like he’s going to break into duck-duck-goose any moment.
Bingo! Some of the comments about Jindal were way off the mark although he sounded a lot better on CNN then on Fox.
I have seen Bobby speak in person and on TV and this was Bobby at his worse.
I agree Governor Jindal does not have Governor Palin’s charisma but he seems very honest and authentic.
Not good. First time I have really heard him too.
Jindel tried to hit an Elephant with a B B gun. He didn’t
get to the meat of the problem or the Communists we are up
The Fox group isn’t impressed with his delivery at all.
“Sorry for my lack of understanding, but it sounds like MY receiver was jammed!”
No worries, I am too sensitive, it was drummed into my mind for the last 30 years or so, I finally caught on.
“MY WIFE advises our daughter - date the jocks but marry the nerd.”
At least he wasn't lying throughout the whole speech.
I HATE DAVID BROOKS. He just ripped Jindal and the GOP on PBS.
PBS - HIRE A CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR TO GIVE THE CONSERVATIVE VIEWPOINT.
Oh come on....he’s a cute little fixer-upper....LOL!
Why is it that we never repeat what we did when Kristine Whitman gave her rebuttal from the NJ State Assembly? Say what you will about her, but having her there with her party cheering like football fans at the Super Bowl was masterful. Why have we never done that again? Presentation is important — we might look down upon it, but let’s face it, that’s ENTIRELY why Zero is where he is in the first place.
Oh boy, these MSNBC guys are incredible in response to Jindal.
Maddow: abaabanabaaa ahahaa....I’m absolutely stunned!
Chrissy: I know of know Repub health care plan that Jindal was speaking about....
Sadly, I agree. I’ve never heard Jindal speak, but he didn’t seem too presidential to me. I agree with most of what he said, but his delivery made him seem like a milquetoast to me.
I agree with you, the optimism is what truly reaches people.
Or if you were really creative and much more witty than me, you could describe it as you did. You nailed it.
And the first skank is nasty looking as ever. And MSM has the stones to criticize Sarah's wardrobe.
ALL...WATCH OUT FOR TROLLS...REMEMBER THE LEFT NEVER RESTS...THEY ARE ON THIS THREAD YOU CAN BE ASSURED.
Go move then! Chances of you supporting a Republican with those comments is slim to none. If you had watched on anything other then Fox, you would have heard a better presentation. Fox messed up his delivery.
We still haven’t learned from the Obama ‘08 experience, much less from Reagan’s term. Charisma, presence, the ability to communicate matters greatly. This is really quite pathetic.
Exactly right. That’s what my brother said. : )
More evidence that they are in fact fair and balanced. He’s terrible.
Did I just hear Krout compare Obama’s speech capabilities to that of being “Reaganesque”?
All day I’ve been hearing that the Dems were gonna try to make the Reaganesque connection and here it turns out that Chucky Krout did it for him!
Dont forget he also has to use small words. :)
exactly. We are a bit more educated and know bigger words than the average talk by texting american. It seemed simplistic to us, but to obamabots looking for something to jump on, he gave them nothing but rainbows and sunshine. Will be tough to attack him for this.
Yes. Happily, Stokely Hussein Obongo has exhausted his diarrhea of the mouth.
I like the guy because of his actions in the aggregate. I could less about how good he is at BS. That said, I don’t like his attitude here. No attacks. Obama is weak and very few opportunities will be had before such a wide audience. I think a great opportunity for constructive aggressive criticism was lost.
