Gov. Bobby Jindal: Sarah Palin "Absolutely" Electable for President
Friday, December 3, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 12/03/2010 8:45:38 PM PST by kristinn

Saying let the voters decide, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has 'manned up' and told Sarah Palin critics Joe Scarborough, the Republican establishment and D.C. insiders to back off in trying to pick who should be the Republican nominee for president in 2012.

In response to a question as to whether former Alaska Governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin would be "electable" should she run for president, Jindal said "Oh, absolutely. I think it is up to her to make the case to voters," adding that Palin is one of "several strong (GOP) contenders."

Jindal made his comments during an interview with Al Hunt on Bloomberg TV.

No contest.

I heard Bobby Jindal on Levin today and he was great. I never saw a sitting politician speak so plainly about his faith. He also spoke the truth about Obama, and didn’t sugar coat it. I’d be satisfied with Jindal, Palin, or Demint. They seem to be the only possible candidates who have the guts to take it to Obama.

Jindal has what I think of as an all-American religious tale, it seems to be a real, honest, personal, embracing of Christian faith.

Jindal has the faith to beat Obama. Palin has the spunk to beat him. The two running together would be interesting, however, I’d rather see Jindal at the top of the ticket, but either way, they’d have our votes.

Kind of proud of Bobby Jindal on this or maybe he's just realizing which way the wind is blowing.
Not a rocked ribbed conservative, but well to the right of G. W. Bush.
What I'm hoping for is that he'll go up against Mary Landrieau and rid us of that embarrassment.

You can fool the American people once but you can’t fool them twice.

I think you are giving the sheeple way too much credit - never forget the state run media is in love with America bashing - it comes natural to supporters of STATEISM. This makes beating the Basher in Chief all that much harder, but give us two more years of this nonsense and America should be ready for a GOP in the WH again. All depends on the 2012 turnout. If the RAT party can rally their base - the takers - then the makers may not win, regardless of policies or charisma.

I would love to see a Palin/Jindal 2012 - either one on top.

Jindal won big points with me when he was critical of Obama during the oil spill. He was man enough to come out and defend his state when the most were too cowardly and were just dying tamp down any Bush-Katrina comparisons.

He was a natural born citizen of India as both of his parents were in America on Student Visas at the time of his birth. He was born a citizen of India and is legally eligible to be president or prime minister of India. So how can he also be eligible to be president of the United States?

The whole idea of making sure that the president was a "natural born citizen" was to avoid dual loyalties. Jindal, by nature of his birth was born with dual loyalties and hence is NOT eligible to be sworn in as president.

FWIW, Obama had at least one parent who was a citizen of the United States at the time of his birth. Jindal had none.

Sorry but I do and there are a lot of other Freepers out there who care about the constitution. Maybe you don't. Maybe you think that just because someone is Conservative that the Constitution doesn't apply to them. Well it does.

Jindal would probably make an excellent Chief Executive. Unfortunately he is not eligible to be the Chief Executive of the United States. He is a Natural Born Citizen of India not of the United States.

Pick another candidate. He's not going to be president. He's not eligible.

The Mainstream media will finally become interested in the definition “Natural Born Citizen” when the question is raised againest a Republican.

Liberal Trolls use the term Birther as a perjorative to describe anyone who has any question about the eligibility of a presidental candidate. That isn't going to work here.

Let me then ask you a question. Is ANYONE born in the United States a "Natural Born Citizen"? Or are there other qualifications? If Prince William and his wife had a baby boy while on student visas in the United States, would the future King of England also be eligible to be president of the United States?

Are you going to actually make a logical argument for his eligibility or are you just going to make an appeal to riducule?

The real constitution says that in order to President you must be a "Natural Born Citizen" of the United States. If Jindal was born a Citizen of India, then how does he meet that definition?

'Splain that to me Lucy.

Quite simple. You're either natural born or naturalized. Jindal was born here. He's natural born and eligible for the presidency. As would Prince William's kid from your previous post.

Just because you believe something doesn't make it true.

Born in America = Natural Born Citizen. So simple even a caveman could understand it.

Don't believe me? Well, let's see. A man with a foreign father is currently serving as the President of the United States while birthers have lost every challenge they've thrown his way.

Looks to me like the people who say Jindal's not eligible are wrong.

No, it just looks like the courts refuse to hear the cases, because every court knows that simply being born in the USA does not make one a Natural Born Citizen, and TSWHTF.

That's not what the Constitution says. If the Framers had intended that every person born in the United States was going to be a natural born citizen, then they would have simply made the qualification that in order to be president you would have to be born on American Soil. They didn't. The intent of the founders in using that language was that they intended that the President of the United States not have divided loyalty.

As would Prince William's kid from your previous post.

You see, you've now exposed the fallacy of your argument. You are claiming that the once and future King of England, the very nation that this country rebelled against to gain our liberty, would be eligible to President of the United States and King of England at the same time merely by nature of his birth on American Soil.

Obviously you have not studied the Constitution. You may have read it, but you have clearly shown that your understanding of it is at a third grade level. And being at a third grade level, your best argument appears to be to call those of us who question the eligibility of Jindal "Birthers". No, we do not claim that Jindal was not born in the United States. He was. We simply questions his eligibility to be President under the authority of the Constitution.

Actually there have been no legal challenges. The courts have consistently denied standing to any and all challengers. The case has never been heard by any court. No evidence has been taken and every suit has been dismissed at the pre-trial level.

Personally I believe that Obama is a natural born citizen because both his mother Stanley Dunham and his biological father, Frank Davis, were both Citizens at the time of his birth.

Obama is the spitting image of Frank Davis. He looks nothing like Barak Obama Sr.

It is understandable that for you it is a personal issue.

You claim to be married to a foreign citizen, with which you have a son. If so, your son does not have sole allegiance to the USA.

If some USA female married Kim Jung Il, or his son, or Achmedinejad, or Hugo Chavez, or any lesser enemy of the USA, their son or daughter would not be eligible to become the President of the United States.

This was the intent of the founders and framers of the US Constitution; to prevent such usurpations, as had happened several times in the history of European nations.

A question that has been answered.

See the guy facing the camera? Yeah, that's the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Wanna know what he's doing? Well, he's swearing into the office of the Presidency a man born of foreign parentage.

Looks to me like Jindal's eligible.

Anyways. Don't blame me. I didn't swear him in. But your more than welcome to write Chief Justice Roberts a strongly-worded letter telling him how he has a third-grade understanding of the Constitution:
