I noticed that, too. It’s also a bit jarring to hear that cadence/accent from someone that looks like that. It’s like when I see black guy in the UK talk with a british accent...takes a bit to get used to.

But it’s all good. I thought it was a fine speech. There’s really only so much you can do in a 10 minute or so response. It’s not exactly a huge platform.

Jindal is 100% better than he presented himself this evening. So he didn't give a knock out speech..

Bobby's the real deal and I trust him.

Since they listened to their own feed I can believe that. The audio feed from Fox sucked big time compared to CNN.

But honestly, when has the Fox people ever given a Republican high marks for speaking in recent years. Even when McCain did very well in his last debate they gave it to ZERO. Fox can take it and stuff it with this group.

Jindal spoke like he was talking to third graders. Pathetic.

Well, apparently 53% of the electorate are third graders. Otherwise, how could Dear Leader have been elected?

Actually, Jindal’s speech kinda reminded me of Kathleen Sebelius’s response to Bush’s last SOTU speech. Stiff and boring.

I know he was talking about Obama’s speech style, but we don’t need to compare it to Reagan’s style.

I would expect the Libs to highjack the “Reaganesque” connection.

Instead, Krout just pulled the car up to the intersection, opened the door, got out, and yelled, “Anybody want to drive this?”

Sarah Palin, at the AK state house, with GOP assemblymen screaming their heads off on her entry would have been EPIC. I can see it being too early to do that in 2009, but if we don’t do that by 2011 we are truly stupid.

I have admit there are racist people here who will not support Jindal cause of his race.. I know it is harsh, but that is the truth. They won’t say it but look for clues in the wording.

Is that ever true. Remember the media would try to portray Reagan as a doddering old fool, but his optimism was infectious despite their dastardly efforts.

Whoever posted upthread that people will remember Jindal’s optimism was absolutely right.

“Strong” is the right word. He’s a nice guy, obviously bright and optimistic, and Lord knows we need a lot of those qualities. He also seems to be a natural leader, one who speaks not only with honesty but with passion and commitment. I’m glad to say, I saw exactly that from Mr. Jindal tonight.

You cannot attack on a speech like this. Do some of you not understand politics 101. I understand that some of the sign-ups from 2007 haven’t been here that long but think — you never want to give your opponents the MSM something to hang their hat on that will come back to haunt day after day.

His optimism carried the day! He did go after spending big time and earmarks by the RATs. Don’t you understand this was not a speech to conservatives?

He spent the first five minutes praising the usurper for being black. I’m so tired of this black shit. He’s half white, get the f over it. His speech sounded tentative and no passion, no anger and there should be. Which RFepublican can step up to the plate and say “We are mad, we aren’t going to take it anymore, we won’t become Communists”

"He’s head an shoulders above Palin who will never see national office."

You've got to be kidding. Palin is more upbeat, has a better personality, and delivers a far more effective speech. Her communication skills are vastly superior to Jindal's. There's no comparison. Jindal has a lot of work to do if he wants to catch up to Governor Palin.

I think a lot is the awful audio feed on FOX that cut in and out every few seconds. It really ruined the flow of the speech. Not that it was even a speech, really. I bet you can go back and look at the last 20 responses to State of the Unions and not one of them was really memorable or led to anything. Do you even remember who gave the responses to any of Bush’s speeches?

It was bad, sadly. And here is the thing; Obama bombed big. It was such an opportunity to slay him. It just didn't happen. He got better towards the end, but unfortunately I'm afraid people stopped listening before he was done. Lost opportunity. Not lost forever; just tonight. It won't matter by Friday.

Palin became a national joke because of McCain. From that she will never recover.

I disagree completely.

The media showed its true, nasty colors. Democrats hated her, and would have anyway.

Palin is still very much in the running. McCain is the sorry joke.

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.

Good point.

A bad national debut for Jindal. He could do much better. While campaigning for Governor, Jindal was sharp minded and had a command of the issues.

Our stars, Jindal, Palin, and Sanford, need more training on the national scene.

Next time perhaps we should let Romney response to the Messiah. I don’t really like Romney, but if the Messiah continues to be strong in the polls let Romney blow his personal wealth trying to take him down and save - Jindal, Palin, or Sanford - for 2016.

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.

Maybe by then you would support the " O" over Palin? No canidate is going to be 100%, but Sarah would knock it out of the ballpark compared to the O who will destroy the entire ballpark!

A little more passion, a few solid uppercuts to Obama’s jaw, and a good bit more conservatism. How about cutting the corporate tax rate to 10%. Eliminating Cap Gains taxes for two years. Redirecting the phony stimulus money to sorely needed defense projects. Rejection of growth killing global warming regulation. Forcing insolvent banks into bankruptcy and auctioning off their assets and awarding the strong banks who didn’t fiddle f**k away their wealth with derivatives.

Also liked how he brought his dad into it. Something the one has not done. Jindal said the right things and that is what matters. Fox played their game of his voice cutting in and out and then they trashed him. That’s OK he spoke the truth about people, not government being the answer.

C’mon, Jindal sounded like he was speaking to Romper Room and the Fox commentators called it as it was. I don’t know about you but I prefer being spoken to like an adult. This was a dreadful failure. They should have given this to Governor Palin or Governor Sanford.
