I’d say Glenn Steele is off to a very good start. Jindal is a great choice for this.

I’d have Sarah make a surprise cameo about half way through, just to throw the LibMedia off their game.

HEY NOW!

I find that highly offensive!

Slugs at least react to outside stimuli...

One of the few with clear vision and the moxie to speak out with it.

I hope he talks about what conservatives believe. It would make oboma look like the president of communist china.

He should remind the people of America how great it once was when we were a free people. It might help shake them out of their slumber.

I like that in a government man/woman. It is rare.

PS...I'm already sick of seeing Obomas mug on TV and listening to his say nothing campaign speeches, but I will tune in for the rebuttal.

I've already heard everything from Oboma I need to hear. He wants to be the next Joe Stalin. He doesn't have to keep repeating it.

Can somebody translate the comments on the NOLA site. I can't figure them out and I am from Baton Rouge. Typical comment:

What does that mean?

Oh crap!

Shouldn’t it be someone with some knowledge, credentials, and qualifications - other than being governor of a small poorly-managed Southern state?

It appears we’re following the Dims down the path of anointing an inepxerienced leader without knowing a doggone thing about him.

Have to remember to DVR it just in case.

This choice is perfect for a rebuttal by the GOP!

I take a stab at it...

"Piyush" is, of course, Bobby's given name and "smh" means "shaking my head".

I wonder if Michael Phelps will be a guest at Obama’s first joint session of Congress?

I agree to some extent, however Bobby Jindal is the anti-Obama and he’s young, articulate and uber-conservative. And, he’s not on the MSM radar.

One of the major complaints about the GOP is that it’s run by the same old people who give us the same old song and dance. And while I hate bringing race into this because it makes me feel grimy, he’s not white. For too long, we have been labeled as racists and enemies of the lower classes. He will conteract that perception. While we shouldn’t worry about such things and focus on issues and policies, the election of Obama solidified that it IS an issue.

I think Jindal will do well as a representative of our party.

This would be Obama's Not Really A State Of The Union Address to Congress? You know, the one with all the trappings of a SOTU, but it won't be considered as one?

Dear Governor Jindal:

Kindly stick it to Comrade Obama. Stick it to him hard.

Most excellent! We need to cultivate all those younger Republican leaders so that more folks in America can see the GOP is more than just John McCain.

Do a little research on Bobby Jindal, and you'll understand.
