It is way too early to think about presidential run: Jindal
The Pioneer ^ | Press Trust of India

Posted on 04/04/2013 3:40:37 PM PDT by Jyotishi

Washington - Indian-American Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal has said it is too early to think about the 2016 presidential run as people of the country are not in a mood to have another four years of campaign.

"It's way too early for folks to be thinking about that. We just lost a presidential election. I don't think the people want another four-year presidential campaign," Jindal said at a Republican Party fundraiser in Jackson, Mississippi.

Jindal is considered to be a key Republican presidential aspirant, but so far has publicly denied.

"I know there's a lot of speculation about who wants to run and who doesn't want to run in 2016. As a party, and as a Republican, I say that anybody who's thinking about running for president needs to have their head examined," Jindal was quoted as saying by the local WAPT TV station.

Why should we care for Bobby Jindal? He denies being of Indian origin in every possible way. He even denies eating Indian food! He has done nothing for India, much less Americans of Indian origin. Your newspaper should not provide him coverage.

Well, he better throw his hat in soon so Gloria Allred can find two or three whores (unnamed, of course) who’ll claim he molested them years ago.

I think it’s way too early to be running in the public square. But anyone considering putting their foot forward should be making plans at least behind closed doors to get their organization ready and defined. jmo

Parents weren’t citizens when he was born. Throw him back in the sea. More fish out there. Hopefully one by the name of Santorum and Bachmann as a ticket!!!! Both parents were citizens at the time of their births. Both SUPER CONSERVATIVE and brilliant beyond belief. They will have this country in top order by the end of four years working on their second term agenda. Unfortunately most people are not conservative and it is starting to happen at Free Republic when FREEPERS don’t want a conservative for some reason. Santorum-Bachmann 2016! For the future of the country

Either you protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America as a conservative, or you don’t as a non-conservative or a fake conservative or RINO. Bobby Jindal is not a antural born citizen as required to be eligible for the Office of the president or Vicee President. Any attempt by himself or by his supporters to put him in an office for which he is ineligible makes such persons enemies of the U.S. Constitution and those persons sworn to protect and defend the Constitution. Pure and simple.

That's according to birthers.

In the real world, Bobby Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, is a natural born citizen and is absolutely eligible to run for President.

No. the rule still applies.

It is just the Dems don’t think they have to abide by the law as it is written.

Maintain the Rule of Law, or the nation is finished. The destruction of the nation is Obozo’s objective.

That can happen 2 ways. Collapse? or Division? Neither are good options.

Bobby Jindal was born with the option of adopting natural born Indian citizenship at his age of majority. No person who was born with the citizenship or option of citizenship in a foreign nation and owing allegiance at birth to a foreign nation can qualify as a natural born citizen of the United States no matter whether or not native born U.S. citizenship may be claimed in addition to the foreign citizenship. This has been a fact of life in the United States, Britain, EEngland, France, and many other nations for some centuries. Bobby Jindal is not a natural born U.S. citizen and catherefore cannot qualify to seerve in the Office of the President or the Vice President. If you continue to attempt to undermine the U.S. Constitution, you make of yourself an enemy of the Constitution and every person who is sworn to protect and defend that constitution from all eneemies foreeign and domestic.

Don’t put ME in that group,(RINO).
I am as pure conservative as one can get, but I do not have a dog in this hunt.
I have not been in the USSA since 2004.
All I look for is the purging of Marxist from American life.

Are you birthers threatening people now? Seriously?

Bobby Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, is a natural born citizen and is eligible to be President. Period. This is very simple and no court in the land is going to rule that Jindal is not qualified to run for President. Period. The courts do not buy these silly birther arguments. If Jindal wants to run, there will be no legal problems with it.

I don’t care who youare, what your creed is, what your race is, what your sex is, what you like or dislike, or anything else but respect for the Constitution, the intent of the Founding Fathers who wrote it, the rule of law and the obligation to amend the Constitution to change its provisions. I’m quite fed up with people like yourself describing people who honor their solemn oaths with the description of “birthers” used as a perjorative and insulting denouncement. If you do not respect the law and our duty to defend the Constitutional law, then do not expect us to respect your usee of free speech to ignore, deny, and destroy our rights nder that constitutional law. This is not a subject to be taken lightly, and any insulting remarks by yourself are not to be tolerated no matter how right you think you are.

You are not going to be president.

Think about that.

I don’t care if Bobby Jindal was born in the White House in Washington D.C. surrounded by U.S. Flags and the GOP Senate. His parents were foreign citizeens and not U.S. citizens when hee was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Unted States of America. This fact of his birth gave him natural born Indian citizenship along with allegiance to the sovereign nation of his parents: India. The whole purpose of the natural born citizen clause was to deny command of the American Army and the office of the President to any peerson who eveer owed allegiance to a foreign sovereign after the adoption of the Constitution. Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio weere both born with natural born citizenship of their rrespective foreing nations, India and Cuba. The fact that they also qualified for nativee born U.S. citizenship as an option to their nattural born foreign citizenship does nothing to change the fact they weere born owing allegiance to a foreign nation in ddireect contradiction to the intent and wordding of the Constitution’s natural born citizen clause.

Pre-Revolutionary War Britain/England had similar restrictions upon the right of natural born children of foreign nations eligible for native born subjecthood to hold office in the Britain/England. This business of claiming that native born citizenship is the same as natural born citizenship is a lie and a fraud, no matter who is trying to perpetrate it. Use of the “birther’ perjorative to demean anyone defending the eligibility issue is repreehensible and not to be tolkerated.

There are way too many of us who do not believe he is NBC.

As such, it would be a disaster for him to run and distracting to message and race.

“You responded to my posts writing in part:

So what? It did not stop Obozo.”

“Don’t put ME in that group,(RINO).
I am as pure conservative as one can get, [….]”

I’m making the point there are a lot of people on freerepublic and elsewhere claiming to be Republicans and/or conservatives who aare pushing this itotally fraudulent idea that native born citizenship is the same as natural born citizenship. I’m making the point that anyone, no matter what they claim to have as their persuasion, who says or impliees the eligibility issue is not to be acknowledged and/or taken seriously is no firend of the Constitution or the people who are obedient to their oath to protect and defeend the Constitution against hese sorts of denying and circumventing of the Constitution. Saying “So what....” is objectionalbe to the extent it aids and abets this belittlement of the eligibility issue and its importance to protecting the Constitution and the republican form of government it definedd.

I have no idea how you construe ANY of my post as anti-birther. I am as much of a birther as anyone on FR.
After the election, my tag line emphasized that I am a proud birther.
I have never used the terms “native born” or “natural born”.
I have no idea what the difference is. I am, however, convinced that the so called birth certificates are frauds.
I am convinced that Obumbo is an illegal immigrant, a radical Marxist and atheist.

I said “so what” in that the USSA is now made up of a majority of brain-dead idiots, so...how do you fight that?
Neither of us can fight “stupid”.
That is one good reason for my staying offshore.

Why would you say that? Because West’s district was redrawn to include a huge number of ignorant dems? And there was most definitely voter fraud. And West has never run for president. He’s a good, honest, brave man.

I don’t want to see the term “birthers” used in this way on this forum. The term was made up by the Left to disparage people who dare question why Obama’s birth certificate and information were being hidden.
And the Leftists claimed that Obama was a natural born citizen - so to use the term “birther” against someone who wants to uphold the constitution is to be even worse that the Leftists who support the imposter in the White House.

I can’t believe that there are people in this forum who are using the term “birther” in this way. No one who has the opportunity to have an allegiance to a foreign country can be a Natural Born Citizen. Period.

Allen West is probably going to have to have at least one state wide term before running for President.
