It's just that I KNOW how good Bobby is at driving a point home. It's something I admired. He still has plenty of time till the next election.

I'm not giving up on him.

Night all..

What do you mean MSM attacks? Seriously, did you watch those interviews?. I love the lady’s conservative positions, but she is not presidential.

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.

Oh please. The damn Yankees have long since gotten over their cosmopolitan biases about voting for a southerner.

I have come to the conclusion when the Fox panel dislikes a Republican the GOP speaker has done their job. The bias on Fox is getting more and more and back to my boycott of all Cable News!

Thank you. A lot of the people on this thread are as shallow as Obama voters. For one thing, I’ve heard and seen him speak to crowds and he is much better. It is one thing to speak to a crowd and get their interaction and response and get into a flow of a speech. It is quite another to speak to an empty room with no one present. He will never be a great orator. If that is what people want then we get what we deserve.

Huh?? That story was a Quaalude.

You’re right this was not suppose to be a fire and brimestone speech the things poeple will remember is that he drew a sharp distinction between the dems and trusting gov’t and believeing in freedom and the people. It was great. That is why Fox hated it and trashed it right away.

Could you live with Palin/Petraeus in 2012?

I am not exactly sure where Petraeus stands on social issues, but I sure would think that he would support rebuilding our military after Obozo gets done with it.

I have seen Bobby speak in person and he can be much better. He typically is much looser and will walk the room. Of course he cannot walk the room without a live audience.

He started out looking very scared and very stiff and talking like he was in a hurry. And yes, he should have been in a chair or at a podium.

My guess that he he felt rushed since Obama went overtime leaving Jindal to start at 10:15 EST.

“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 agree but when it comes to media interviews, Jindal wins no doubt about it.

Couldn’t disagree more. Jindal was articulate and comfortable in a very tough situation. He will be destroyed by PravdABDNC attack machine for the fact that he is a conservative minority. He covered all the points that matter, small gummit, corruption and energy. Hit all out very solidly.

Pray for America

I think you hit the difference. He spoke for me too. I liked what I heard especially his optimism and that of his Dad from the time his parent arrived in this Country.

Also thought his ancedot on Katrina was telling about the bureaucrats which said he dislikes bureaucracy as much as I do.

What you get from Bobby is a pure honest, smart, get-something-done man. Not a charlatan. NOT a camera mugging, chin up in the air fake politician. Gov Jindal is a very genuine man. I don't know why he wanted to apply his brilliance to public service, but we in Louisiana are glad he did.

America would be very fortunate to have him as President. I appreciate how he looked straight into the camera tonight and just talked to us. He is the anti-Obama medicine for me.

McConnell’s Response [Kathryn Jean Lopez]

“Tonight Kentuckians and all Americans were proud eyewitnesses to history as an African-American president addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time.

“Over the years, there have been many important markers in our nation’s long journey toward racial equality. Few have been as compelling as seeing President Obama in the Speaker’s rostrum tonight.

“The President’s message was important and timely: America faces great challenges in the months and years ahead, and I was heartened to hear of his commitment to the millions who are struggling to hold onto homes and jobs and who are worried about what the future holds for themselves and their children.

“As we work to address all these concerns, we will have our differences. Republicans believe the road back to prosperity is paved with greater personal freedom, not bigger government, and that in this moment of economic hardship, we should be more vigilant about spending taxpayer dollars, not less.

“But one thing is clear: working through the current troubles will require a shared commitment as we address America’s challenges ahead.”

In the end, GWB was not the best of “orators” but he was indeed better than Jindal was tonight. It came off as condescending and did sound like Gore (as another poster noted). I don’t doubt that he can do better, it was just rough outing.

As one who graduated at the top of my class and one who got the full nerd-treatment at the hands of the “beautiful people”, remember, there *are* rewards down the line:

- I now have a good job at a great company.
- I went to college for free.
- I went to graduate school for free.
- I have zero debt.
- I’ve saved two years’ salary.

Earning six figures helps my psyche too, of course (wink).

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.

That's right, KevinDavis! And remember how the media trashed Reagan's Mr. Rogers-like speaking style? I admit Bobby Jindal needs to do better next time, but what shone through was his optimism about America and her people...

***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.****

Thats the sentiment shared by John Zeigler, producer of the DVD, HOW OBAMA GOT ELECTED. I think Palin should take his advice.

Perhaps, but when did we become slaves to the media? And when I say WE I mean conservatives.

We have got to stop pushing this leftist notion of style over substance. I don't give a rip how Palin did with Couric or Gibson because I know she wouldn't get a fair shake anyway. What I do care about is her substance- what she stands for, what her conservative record is, and what her vision for America is. How well she 'comes off' in an interview is not important.

I think it is because they deal with businessmen and lobbyists, few of whom can deliver a speech either, and who kind of look down on those people who can, as “unserious.” But mainly I think it is because they can’t look at recordings of their own speeches and hear and see what is wrong. It is “ I am who I am, take me or leave me “ kind of thing. And they surround themselves with flunkies who won’t tell the emperor he has no clothes.

You are so sadly misinformed. Which socialist that you know proposed eliminating all taxes on manufacturing? That cosponsored the Fair Tax? That has been as aggressive as anyone in DC the last 25 years in proposing tax cuts? That proposed ELIMINATING the Dept of Ed., the DOE, and other sundry bureaucracies? How about slashing OSHA and the EPA to the bone? He was Drill baby Drill 25 years before it was popular in repubbie ranks.

If Hunter is a socialist, then the GOP are rank communists in comparison.

It's up to the GOP to get it's act together.

Letting the enemy (open primaries, the media, RINO GOP leadership) choose the GOP candidate is what did them in.

If they fix that and get behind a good conservative candidate from the git go there will be no split ticket.
