More like a pea shooter.
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.
Yeah looks like a lot of the same people who hate Palin hate Jindal. Isn’t it funny how that happens.
Love Jindal. A true conservative. They guys on Fox thought he was terrible. He must have struck a nerve. He hurt their messiah with the truth.
McCain will also be on Fox & Friends tomorrow morning to gush over Barry’s speech.
maybe they can do as well as Obama v. McCain if they outspend him by 7-1.
Dirty Jock Strap maybe....
Overall, a very good response.
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?
what would you like different?
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”
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?
married 25 years, own our house outright, got a daughter who graduates in a couple months with high grades. Am 58 and will retire at 60. Not a bad life ---for a nerd.
Well, right now he’s talking about working with Bambi on health care.
He’s also admitting rushing into TARP.
What an idiot.
Our rebuttal spokesman or theirs is not allowed to speak in the Chamber in front of supporters. That was the State versus Federal.
