    Here is video of Fox News’ Bret Baier profiling Louisiana GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal as a possible 2012 Presidential candidate. Baier has been doing a “12 in 2012″ Series, in which he is profiling 12 possible candidates for the 2012 GOP Presidential Nomination. Jindal said he is “absolutely” for repealing ObamaCare, and that it needs to be replaced with more patient/doctor-centered approaches. If nominated, Jindal would be the first minority ever to run on a GOP Presidential ticket. Jindal said “this war on Islamic Terrorism” is the top Foreign Policy issue facing America. He admitted that his performance in giving...
  • Is Bobby Jindal Eligible To Become President If He Was Born Before Parents Were Naturalized?

    I need some help on this. I was reading where Bobby Jindal was born to immigrants here on visas. If he was born in Baton Rouge before they became naturalized citizens, wouldn't that make him ineligible to become President? I am in a heated argument at another website over this and I need answers to this controversy. Any help would be appreciated. R.I.O.

    NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal uses a new book to portray President Barack Obama as disconnected from the Gulf oil spill, charging that he was more focused on the political aftermath than the actual impact of the crisis.

    BATON ROUGE, La. -- Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal calls the Obama administration "lackadaisical" in its Gulf oil spill response in his new book "Leadership and Crisis," laying out his views on everything from health care to energy policy while keeping silent on whether he harbors presidential ambitions. Criticism of Democratic President Barack Obama for the federal disaster opens Jindal's 311-page book set for nationwide release next week as speculation turns to those Republicans who might challenge Obama in 2012. Part autobiography, part conservative manifesto, the book charts the rise of the 39-year-old son of Indian immigrants to the Louisiana governorship...

The Democratic National Committee formally has asked the Pentagon for reams of correspondence between military agencies and nine potential Republican presidential candidates, a clear indication that Democrats are building opposition-research files on specific 2012 contenders even before the midterm elections. An internal Army e-mail obtained by ABC News indicates that the DNC has filed Freedom of Information Act requests for "any and all records of communication" between Army departments and agencies and each of the nine Republicans -- all of whom are widely mentioned as possible challengers to...

    Popular Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal repeated his claim that he won’t seek the Republican Party’s nomination to run against President Barack Obama in 2012, Fosters Daily Democrat reported. During a campaign stump for GOP gubernatorial candidate John Stephen, R-N.H., in the nation’s first primary state, Jindal said he would not run for the nation’s highest office and, instead, stressed the importance of the upcoming midterm elections. "I'm not running in 2012,” Jindal said during a visit to Salient Surgical Technologies. “We have a lot more work to do [in Louisiana]."

    Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office is disputing claims that Louisiana’s top elected official wouldn’t qualify for U.S. citizenship if a Republican-led charge to strip the citizenship clause from the 14th Amendment had been successful before Jindal’s birth in Baton Rouge in 1971, according to a report at the website of CBS News. Some GOP senators have called for hearings on the issue, arguing that conferring automatic citizenship on persons born in the United States encourages illegal immigration. The 14th Amendment was adopted during Reconstruction to grant citizenship to former slaves. Some Democrats have accused Republicans of using the issue as a...

    "We don't have time for meetings. We don't have time for red tape and bureaucracy. We're literally in a war to save our coast. Every hour matters. Every day matters."—Gov. Bobby Jindal (R.-La.) Since Bobby Jindal came on the scene as a U.S. congressman from Louisiana, he’s shaken the status quo. He is an unabashed conservative within the Republican Party—a unique blend of the political and business world. He also gave the party some color. Republicans are sensitive about their perceived “color problem,” and Bobby Jindal added a religious fervor and true conservative credentials along with his Indian heritage and...

    For some time now, THE DEAD PELICAN has noted the unusual level of interest in the Louisiana Lt. governor's race. There are FIVE candidates currently running for the position! And everyone knows that if Jindal were to quit, the Lt. Governor would take over. There is a growing belief that those in the Lt. Governo's race are NOT running for that position alone: some expect to eventually be the next governor if they win. Some of the speculation is fueled by Secretary of State Jay Dardenne's interest in the position. Some find it curious that he is running. Going from...

    It's a long term strategy but one that is not impossible. If Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal can learn anything from President Barack Obama's administration. It's that a bi-partisan and multi-racial coalition can achieve success in the White House. President Obama may have his inner circle of staff. Yet, he has reached out across party lines and racial divide to put together a pretty good team. While Governor Jindal recently reiterated that he has no plans to run for President in the next election. Which most political insiders believe is a good idea. The Gulf oil spill gives Jindal a wonderful...

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has a lot more work to do to see his way out of the political mess that is the Gulf oil spill. There are a number of factors that could hamper his progress, If he takes his time and uses all the resources available then he could come out of it in good shape. As an added bonus he could get a fair amount of credit for leading Louisiana out of the dark ages. How much credit. Would it be 55% of the credit. That's not important now. What's important is getting something good out of...

    Yesterday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal signed House Bill 1247, “The Abortion Insurance Opt-out Act.” The new law, which goes it effect immediately, exempts the state from the abortion mandate in the recently-enacted federal health care reform law.
