Fox News Sean Hannity sat down with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Thursday at the Republican Leadership Conference to talk about the accomplishments conservative governors have made across the U.S.
All of you inherited deficits you turned into surpluses, high unemployment now low unemployment, Hannity said of Jindal and Govs. Rick Scott (FL), Rick Perry (TX), John Kasich (OH), Scott Walker (WI), and Nikki Haley (SC). What can the Republicans in Washington learn?
Washington can actually learn a lot from states if they want toits just common sense, Jindal replied. Lawmakers inside the beltway always talk about the things they cant do, like cutting spending, repealing Obamacare, enforcing term limits, cutting taxes. All thats ridiculous. At the state level, weve done those things, he said.
The conversation then switched to trust. Jindal said that conservative governors actually understand and trust the American people. The Obama administration, however, doesnt seem to trust the public to choose their own insurance, or their childs school, for example.
When we met with him as governors, I asked him, why dont you give the states more influence on accrediting higher education, to bring more competition in the marketplace? Jindal said.
Heres the insulting thing: In a room full of Democratic and Republican governors, basically, in so many words he said, We cant trust states. We cant trust governors to protect their own people.
Given the Obama administrations efforts going after states for their voter ID and immigration laws, for example, Jindals claims arent that hard to believe.

“Given the Obama administrations efforts going after states for their voter ID and immigration laws, for example, Jindals claims arent that hard to believe.”
These people are still fighting the Civil War. Just look at their perpetual attacks on southern culture and the 10th Amendment. It’s no surprise that they despise the concept of states’ rights.
Could you imagine what our country could do with decent leadership?
I’m not surprised. That’s why he is arming all federal agencies. Dictators don’t trust anybody.
The Jakarta street kid, the guy in our White House, does not trust independent thinkers. He is your basic Muslim-type dictator. History is filled with such individuals who brought only mayhem and destruction.
And the States don’t trust you either Bambi, not even the Illinoises, Connecticuts, or Washingtons. When you’ve lost those, you’ve lost everything.
Were it not for the pain and suffering all Americans will continue to experience as a result of this failed Presidency, I’d simply say ‘stew in it Bambi’ for the next few years. But he still can do a great deal of damage until January 20th 2017 so we must continue to fight him with the loss of the Senate and a strengthened, take no prisoners House of Reps (sans Boehner as Speaker of course).
The kicker is that schools in the NE are more segregated than schools in the deep south.
And hope the governors told Obama we don’t trust you or the government.
Trust ? We entrust you with being the commander in chief of our armed forces. Yet, we were just informed that your pentagon is going to enlist Mexican citizens into our US military. How can we Americans trust Mexicans to protect and defend America ?
Good points. Good Post.
Where is it written that the federal chief executive has primacy in such matters? The shift in power has occurred only because power-hungry presidents sought it an seized it, unchallenged.
From whence the authority for a Federal Dept. of Education dictating what is taught in El-Hi Schools, how it should be taught; what pupils in such schools shall eat for their lunches, etc, etc, etc???
The nose under the tent was Jimmuh Cahtah’s unopposed creation of a federal Dept. of Education as a payoff to the Nat’l Education (??) Association (i.e., the teachers’ union). From thence there had flowed great mischief.
Thanks gov_bean_ counter...
The states don’t trust you, Obama.
“The kicker is that schools in the NE are more segregated than schools in the deep south.”
I think EVERYTHING in the northeast is more segregated than the deep South, and it is only getting worse as “Anglo-Americans” (English-speaking Americans of European descent) are fleeing the area. The policy-makers that are trying to inject white taxpayers into darker neighborhoods to pay the bills, or inject darker people into white neighborhoods to have their bills paid, are realizing that those whites are fleeing rather than be financially raped. The middle-class “repalcement Americans” imported here (Indians and Red Chinese) are not exactly eager to feed the permanent underclass, and keep much of the money in family and/or cash businesses.
Big Government pushed their reparations bill on whites too late; there is no next generation to pay the bill (and the current generation all too often is out of work anyway).
We cant trust governors to protect their own people.
Prove it and take over city, county and state Law Enforcement Agencies.
