    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...

    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...

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.

    Last night's Republican primary runoff in South Carolina plausibly clears the way for Nikki Haley to join Bobby Jindal as governors with an epochal distinction: two Indian Americans leading two Southern states. Belonging to a community that makes up less than a percentage of the U.S. population, their accomplishment is momentous, even more so because Haley would be the first female governor of her state. Coupled with President Obama's own astounding win last year--he carried North Carolina, Virginia and Florida--a credible argument could be made that in politics, at least, a post-racial South is emerging. Haley endured ludicrous, unsubstantiated allegations...

I remarked as well on the poor performance of the four Presidents they elected who did not have prior executive experience; and I suggested that it is time for the Republicans to ask who, in their number, has demonstrated a willingness and an ability...

Jindal said he had a conference call with President Barack Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, and appealed to her to shorten the six-month moratorium, arguing that a half-year pause would force oil companies to move drilling operations overseas for years and that the federal government could easily impose new safety standards and...

The only thing transparent about this administration is its lies. Experts brought together by the Obama administration to review offshore drilling safety were asked to review recommendations in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

    Standing at a podium in Venice, Louisiana, an aide handed Jindal a piece of paper informing him that the White House had approved to a plan requiring BP Plc to spend $350 million to build five barrier islands. The sand islands hopefully will shield the state's fragile coastline from an onslaught of oil. Over the past few weeks, the barrier islands have become a flash point between the White House and Jindal, the 38-year-old son of Indian immigrants with national political ambitions. With criticism of President Barack Obama mounting, Jindal has buffed his political credentials by vilifying both London-based BP...

    In a poll released yesterday and reported Thursday evening on the Fox News' Bill O'Reilly program, 59% of Americans now disapprove of Obama's handling of the Gulf oil spill. The results of the poll were reported in a segment with radio commentator Laura Ingraham. Video Here. As Obama and the Administration come under increasing fire for their lackadaisical approach to the mounting problems created by the spill, which is moving closer to large stretches of beaches along the Gulf shoreline, the mainstream media has generally failed to report the widespread public dissatisfaction with Obama. Instead, the media has chosen to...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) pushed Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) on Sunday to ignore federal rules and proceed with his desire to build berms to protect his state's coastline. Palin told Jindal to "ask forgiveness later" for a plan to build a chain of artificial protective islands off the coast of Louisiana to help mitigate the ecological impact of the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill in Louisiana. The federal government has yet to sign off on Jindal's plan, earning the enmity of the governor, a political favorite of conservatives and a potential future Republican candidate for president.

    Here is video of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal being asked if he agrees with President Obama’s claim that everything is being done that can be done to combat the Gulf Oil Spill. Jindal says that’s not the case, that there could have been “a greater sense of urgency." Jindal cited a Coast Guard official who has also said that more could have been done to combat the impact of the leak.

    In 2006, my wife and I traveled to New Orleans and visited the site of an unassuming two-story house on Navarre Avenue. A gaping top-to-bottom crack stared at me from one wall. A horizontal water line on the bricks four feet above my head marked a chapter of New Orleans history written in 2005 by a stormy lady named Katrina, with coauthors named government corruption and incompetence. I stroked the rough old bricks, surveyed the overgrown yard, and said goodbye. My childhood home is gone now. Today, with oil soaking the lakes, bayous, and marshes of my old stomping grounds,...

    Five weeks have passed since the oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. After five weeks the citizens along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida are still waiting for government to respond appropriately to an ecological disaster that effects hundreds and potentially thousands of miles of coastline. (Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal displays a stick that he dipped into oil on a land bridge built by the Louisiana National Guard to protect wetlands on Elmer's Island in Grand Isle, La., Thursday, May 20, 2010. Oil from last month's Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of...

    The country has watched the oil continue to spill into our ocean as Obama and his incompetent administration stands by and constantly reiterate that they’ve “been there since day one” with “all hands on deck.” Meanwhile, Jindal continues to wait for approval on moving forward with remedies to the problems. Meanwhile, Obama seems more concerned with choosing vacation locations. Human Events did a great job at showing the stark differences between the White House incompetence and the Jindal “get ‘er done” attitude in this great video clip!

    Emergencies: As frustration with the federal response grows, Louisiana's governor lashes out at the feds for doing little except blame BP for the Gulf oil spill. Meanwhile, Congress sees a chance to raise your gas taxes. While the Obama administration continues on its quest to fundamentally transform America, the largely unabated Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico threatens to fundamentally transform the ecosystems and economy of Louisiana and the Gulf region. The federal government's response so far has consisted largely of scapegoating BP and ignoring its own responsibilities and lack of preparation, railing against Big Oil, while Congress...

    ""This video was shot by the local parish government in South Pass. When we [CBS] tried to reach the beach covered in oil, a boat with BP contractors with two Coast Guard officers on board told us to turn around under threat of arrest. "This is BP's rules, not ours." We spoke to Coast Guard officials today. They say that they are looking into it.""

    A brutal beating in New Orleans following the Southern Republican Leadership Conference — held in that city from April 8-11 — has challenged the myth regarding the preferred residence of political thuggery. Circumstantial evidence is piling up that far-left anarchists viciously attacked a staffer to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, putting Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend Joe Brown in the hospital with broken bones. The story has been, unsurprisingly, ignored. Bautsch, a rising star in Republican politics and just 25 years old, helped organize a $10,000-a-plate GOP fundraiser at the legendary Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. Jindal attended the affair, as...
