I call for Jindal/Palin 2012 —
I am a 27-yr-old married woman who has tons of friends and family in the same age bracket. We’d be campaigning like crazy for this duo. On another note, I personally spoke with a group of 80-yr-old-plus ladies recently who LOVE Sarah Palin. It’s not a lost cause...I just need to know what to do to make help make this happen, and I’ll do it.
I thought Bobby dud great, he spoke to the average person. The Fox Talking heads hated it, but I liked it. It is exactly what I want to hear and SEE out of the GOP.
He was talking about Obama’s speech style. And Krauthammer is right. Obama is in a league of his own as was Reagan.
I agree, Jindal and Palin are the future. You will see freepers here attack them. IMO most are trolls. You will also see Paulnuts attack them. FR should flush all these disruptors in my opinion because by doing so they would eliminate a lot of DU plants.
I still get inspired when I see Reagan’s speeches w/o an audience. In fact, I find inspiration in just reading principled conservative views. Jindal reminds me of Daschle’s sitting on a phone book rebuttal. It was a bad choice. Haley Barbour, Sarah, Duncan Hunter Jr., or the janitor would have been better. And I LIKE Jindal. If I didn’t, my review would be harsher.
I liked it too, very much
Exactly! People who listen to the speech will remember his optimism at the end and the way he finished. I was shocked when I turned to CNN and his voice sounded so strong compared to Fox.
I have to admit I thought it was funny how he brought up he was born here. Getting that out of the way.
Don’t start with the dis of Gov. Palin.
I like Gov. Jindal and he did the best he could tonight.
Gov. Palin knows what to say in a speech and can deliver.
At the convention, the teleprompter went out at the beginning and she went on anyways.
Bobby Jindal Rocks!!!
Sorry but Jindal was horrible. Palin should have deli vered this. Looks like Palin and Romney are the only potential to compete oratorically with the One.
Favorable or unfavorable of Jindal's speech?
The entire Fox News panel completely trashed Jindal, although Charles Krauthammer didn't trash his speech too much. Geesh...
That is the first time I have felt physically ill from a political speech. Obama got me close to it a few times during the campaign, but I generally turned it off. But I listened on the way home from a class... oh, man. Obama was right back on the campaign trail - and I think he lied more times in that 54 minutes than in a month on the campaign trail.
And that doesn’t even touch on the complete lack of any real substance.
And what was the point near the end, where Obama told the story of the executive that took his bonus and gave it to the “other 399 employees plus 78 former employees”? That fellow did it voluntarily. Obama wants to FORCE the higher income brackets to do this under force of law.
And I am so sick of hearing that the Bush tax cuts only helped those making over $250K per year. I have never made more than $50K (school teacher and now a Pastor), yet my tax burden was lower after the tax cuts. How did that happen?
And then the local radio station that was suppose to carry the Jindal response kept cutting back and forth from regular programing (tape-delayed Hannity) and live audio from the House... by the time I got the computer booted and online where I could hear it streaming, Jindal was almost done... arrggghhhh...
Anyone have a source to listen to it online?
I had to switch from FOX to NBC. Much better audio.
That is how Reagan won, by being an optimist. He didn’t have a holier than thou attitude nor he was a fire and brimstone candidate.
Too bad the “stupid party” let the libs and the media (but I repeat myself) run Sarah Palin off the national stage. SHE would have been the obvious choice for tonights response.
I agree Kevin.
Dear Leader can speak like a Ted Stevens from the Mary Tyler Moore Show. He can read text written by others.
Jindal is substance.
Why do you say he was horrible?
In a word: Bobby Bombed.
I listened as long as I could stand it.
This guy has nothing for us.
I like Jindal. But I can give a better speech with zero preparation.
I’m on DISH satellite. Could be the satellite feed.
Oh please. We can't try to fool ourselves. I'd never heard Jindal speak and was looking forward to hearing from him. It was a total bust. I could barely stand listening to him.
They didn’t wait till tomorrow, they are cutting him into pieces on good ole Fox news.
Nice guys finish last. Our country is about to be destroyed by the evil that is Barry and Co.
I just read the whole thread and learned one thing. You can talk about dogsh** and people will love it as long as you look and sound good while you’re doing it.
Did you listen to Fox? His delivery on CNN was much better. Don’t know what Fox did to the audio but it sucked. Much stronger on CNN.
Very good point!
I think Bobby did fantastic(ally). The audio on NBC was great and his speaking style nearly put me into a trance.
All the comments about presence and charisma are a little jejune, imo. I think Jindal did well overall and I have no doubt he would totally eviscerate any GOP 2012 hopefuls and then Obama in a debate.
Sadly so. I can hear Palin, Sanford, et al heaving a sigh of relief thoguh. LOL
I will grant that. I wish it mattered to more people.
One reason why the Dims have taken out after Palin. She actually delivers a speech better than Obama. What I can not understand is why so few politicians can deliver a good speech. BTW, I heard Rock Perry deliver a pretty good speech on behalf of a veterans group the other day. he actually got emotion in into it. IAC. this will not be remembered as THE speech for Jindal.
“Weak” is the right word. He seems like a nice guy, obviously bright and optimistic, and Lord knows we need a lot of those qualities. But what we really need right now is a leader, one who speaks not only with honesty but with passion and commitment. Sorry to say, I didn’t see that from Mr. Jindal tonight.
So are you forgetting about Palin?
Jindal is a good conservative but Palin is a conservative and is awesome.
Palin/Jindal in 2012!
That is the real issue. All this other stuff is distractions. Remember how important it was to sue the SOS of Ohio and try to make her clean up the voter rolls? It was ruled she didn't have enough time. Yet, after the election, I don't hear anything. Those fake registrations are still there and everywhere else in this country.
If there's one issue that will make or break this country, it's honest elections.
I've noticed that as well... no excuse for that, FNC!
I thought Jindal did a great job. However the one worlders on Fox did not.
I like Jindal even more now than I did before. I think he did great! Endless attacks easily backfire; he spoke to those who kicked the GOP out in 06 and 08 and identified the mistakes the party made. I think this will score some serious points. A rational, reasoned approach, instead of the rabid, bug-eyed attack that the libs expected.
I don’t get it—why did you hate it?
Jindal was sincere, accessible, his story is real...he is young, but that means not cynical—he is intelligent and projects deep-felt commitment
what would you like different?
Nice guys finish last
Jindel used a B B gun against this Evil Bastard.
No commie news network here. Glad to hear it was better, but it was terrible on Fox.
“Dear Leader can speak like a Ted Stevens from the Mary Tyler Moore Show”
Not to be technical, but “Ted Baxter.” ;-)
Mediocre, not one of his best. We need a real go getter that’s not afraid to attack. I like Tom Coburn or turn Sarah lose with no restrictions and no interviews with gotcha people that hate her.
Sorry guy, I’m not a fan. I say it like it is, and to be frank, I don’t care for her at all. If we don’t unite on a better candidate in 2012, we’re sunk because I and countless others like me in the party will never support Palin.
MSNBC were completely unfavorable to Jindal's response.
Not one positive thing that was said by any of them, Olbermann, Maddow, or Chrissy M.
Don’t worry. McQueeg is giving his own rebuttal in a live interview on CBS right now.
