WASHINGTON — The nation’s governors emerged from a meeting with President Barack Obama on Monday claiming harmony, only to immediately break into an on-camera partisan feud in front of the West Wing.

Raising the minimum wage will increase prices for everything else. Are these people stupid?

That's an awesomely ambiguous statement. "Claiming harmony" -- with whom, and on what issues? What was the wording of the actual claim?

Dem Guv Malloy is simply a lying lib mouthpiece.

Dem Guv Hick is a “no shot artist”

Their objections make clear how effective Jindal was.

An R governor with the stones to stand up and state the obvious. Note all all the Dbots act like the whiny little B*&!%es they are after the comment. YOu don’t think any of these Dbots would have been stampeding to the microphones to trash an R administration?

-——“The Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy. I think we can do better than that,” Jindal said.——

minimum wage economy....... now that’s going to leave a mark

when only minimum wage jobs are available, we will all earn only the minimum wage

You nailed it, Thomas. Anything to show that peace and harmony really do exist in our nation’s capitol. My only question is Why wasn’t this article titled “Jindal dares to speak the truth following White House meeting.”
