I like Fred but he bombed so bad in the GOP Primaries....no fire in the belly. And Duncan is a good man but this country will never again elect a tired, old white man to the Oval Office.

*insert bad word here*!! I should have known better. I listened to it sober. *insert more bad words here*!!

Now, I got blown gaskets in my brain, one nerve left, and a twititch in one hand and an eye.

I aint going to make it to 2012. Especially if the House and Senate doesn't change in ‘10. I think it may have been Nancy Peloser who gave me the twititch in my eye.

And since this is a Jindal thread, I would like to add that I liked what Jindal had to say. He does not speak like the One, but what matters to me content.

I would like to see a Republican response to every Obozo appearance. Obozo is on TV every *insert bad word here* day and I have yet to see a Republican response. Every time Bush was on, we had to listen to a demoratic response. Maybe, it is a lot harder to keep up with all the Obozo appearances. Maybe, they could help the economy and create at least one job that is dedicated to following Obozo and responding.

I was really hoping for something big from Jindal, but his delivery was terrible. He spoke too fast and gave a weird smile at the end. He can recover in time, but it will take some work to un-do that first impression he left with many Americans who had never seen him before.

Alas, I agree... while I love Jindal’s positions... well... I’m about to commit heresy here. His singsong delivery reminded me of algore (***ducking***!!)

Jindal sucked apparently. I listened to the content, so I didn't notice how flat he apparently sounded. I thought the content was pretty good for a generic response to a really generic Presidential speech...no specifics.

President Obama gave little in substance but spoke in broad generalities adorned with the usual bromides.

Kind of hard to respond to that sort of non-substance. Where Jindal did his best was in laying out the differences in the general philosophies of the two parties.

I doubt anyone could have done better. The response speech is one of the least attractive and riskiest speeches to give. Pretty much all downside with very little upside.

To be sure, Jindal didn't up his political capital with this performance.

It’s not called State of the Union when a president so soon after inauguration gives a speech that really is a State of the Union speech. (I heard this today on Fox - someone asked the same question).

I think the more people hear Zero with is angry and condescending tone they will eventually tune him out. Just like kids tune out their Moms yelling at them. I thought Jindal was great, didn't show any anger...that is what Zero's all about.

I agree. We need an alpha male. We need a real strong man to take down the metro sexual that is now President. I like Jindal, but I want someone that is tough as nails and sticks to his guns and isn’t afraid to say that he doesn’t support the dem president.

Jindal showed a lack of “gravitas,” I think. We know he is brilliant and an accomplished politician. But in this era when image is so important, and we are up against masters of manipulation, then we need a better spokesperson on our side. Jindal’s substance was good but if he is not more persuasive on camera, this hurts his cause.

I listened to about half of it on Fox when I saw someone say he sounded better on CNN so I switched over and sure enough his voice was strong, sincere, and very well delivered versus the garbled version on Fox. Makes me wonder about Fox. BTW, this is the first I have watched any of the Cable News Channels since the day before Bush left office and going back to my boycott. I didn’t listen to ZERO at all. I don’t even listen to local news because I don’t want to hear about ZERO.

"You’re sorely mistaken if you think McCain went down without taking a great conservative with him. Losing VP candidates don’t have a very good track record anyway."

And you think Palin was diminished by her experience and exposure as McCorpse's VP??

The effect has been exactly the opposite. Sarah Palin is STILL proven to be the GOP's ONLY "rock star."

It remains to be seen if Governor Palin will recover enough in four years to be able to win the general. But certainly she'll be recovered in eight.

Jindal is not the candidate to beat Obama in 2012. He doesn't have it. We cannot afford to get it wrong again.

Relax everybody. Jindal will come back. Remember how Bill Clinton’s speech bombed at the ‘88 Dem Convention? When he said: “And in closing....” the crowd cheered wildly. I’d say he made a comeback. Bobby will be o.k.

Love how you continue to attack conservatives, except the surrender monkey Ron Paul and give Zero a pass. You got that college term paper to finish before you start attacking Zero right? Freshman paper? I would take the likes of someone like Jindal or Palin over a disruptor like yourself anytime. Hell you are still wet behind the ears and probably not even old enough to drink legally.

It’s not going to be Palin vs Obama. I promise we’ll field a stronger candidate.

While I have serious doubts about that statement, I pray that you are correct. But I just don't think the Grand Old Party has it in her any more. No backbone, no substance. The libs have brainwashed enough generations in public schools to now have the Socialist mentality an ingraned part of their being. Even the GOP has allowed Socialism in various forms to infiltrate.

Don’t waste your breath. The anti-Palin crowd is out in full force. But, they’re ever so easy to ‘out’ since all their reasons against her are the same as liberals. And of course there are the freepers who have fallen for the MSM’s attacks as well.

I heard Sarah speak in person.To a crowd of 20,000 in our rinky-dink little town.

She was sensational! She can do it if the Party gets behind her and ignores the Romneyites and the RINOs.

She’s the only hope for true conservatives.
