    Boxer: I feel sorry for the people of Louisiana @ 8:55 am by Michael O'Brien Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) feels sorry for Louisianans for having to live under the governorship of Bobby Jindal (R). Boxer lamented Jindal's decision to reject some elements of the economic stimulus package approved by Congress during a Wednesday morning appearance on "Morning Joe." "I'm really sorry for the people of Louisiana," she said. "What a tragedy it would be that because a politician wants to make some points he says to someone who's unemployed, 'sorry.'" Gov. Jindal delivered the Republican response to President Obama's speech...

    Maybe he got a thrill up his leg. Following President Obama's first address to Congress on Tuesday night, an MSNBC host or producer was caught muttering "Oh God" on the air as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal walked toward the camera to deliver the GOP response. The remark was heard after "Countdown" host Keith Olbermann interrupted the network's political panel to introduce the Republican governor. "Chris [Matthews], stand by, Rachel [Maddow], stand by, we're getting that cue from Baton Rouge where Governor Jindal of Louisiana is set to deliver the Republican response to President Obama. It is entitled 'Americans Can Do...

    As someone who has both taught Public Speaking and been a member of Toastmasters, I know a little something about how to craft a decent presentation and give a speech. It is frustating to see how many people, even here in FR, have fallen for the idea that histrionics is good speechifying. My students and the members of Toastmasters with a little experience, could give a better speech than Obama. Two of the first things you learn in Public Speaking is a) Don't READ your speech. Give it b) Look your audience in the eye. Certainly, it is hard to...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews quietly uttered "Oh God" as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal prepared to give the Republican Party response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress.

    TV Newser: MSNBC's Chris Matthews has responded to his uttering of the words "Oh God" just as Gov. Bobby Jindal emerged to deliver the GOP response last night. TVNewser has obtained some of what Matthews will say on "Hardball" tonight: "I was taken aback by that peculiar stagecraft, the walking from somewhere in the back of this narrow hall, this winding staircase looming there, the odd anti-bellum look of the scene. Was this some mimicking of a president walking along the state floor to the East Room?"

    RUSH: Now, a couple words here about Bobby Jindal. There's a great disconnect, ladies and gentlemen, between the Beltway pundits in the Drive-By Media -- and I, sadly, have to include the Fox News All Stars in this. We live in a world obviously where style counts for more than anything else, and that's not good. Obama's a great stylist, a great orator, who gave great speech last night. But if you listen to it, it was meaningless. It had all kinds of lies. Those of us who studied Obama know exactly what he's going to do. He's going to...

    Yahoo News ^ | 02/25/2009 | By DAVID BAUDER,
    NEW YORK – MSNBC's Chris Matthews said he was surprised by the "peculiar stagecraft" of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress, leading him to quietly say "Oh God" as Jindal approached a microphone. The remark inspired a brief Internet guessing game about who had said it and questions about whether someone at MSNBC was mocking the Republican governor. Matthews' barely audible "Oh God" appeared to be a classic case of someone talking on TV without realizing their microphone was on, and potentially embarrassing to a network many Republicans already regard with suspicion because of...

    New York (AP) -- Insane. Childish. Disaster. And those were some of the kinder comments from political pundits about Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and his response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress on Tuesday night. Jindal, 37, a Rhodes scholar and son of Indian immigrants, is considered a rising star in Republican ranks and a likely 2012 presidential candidate. GOP leaders, looking for a fresh face for the party's image, tapped Jindal earlier this month for the high-profile task of rebutting Obama's first address to a joint session of Congress. But in both style and substance, Jindal's speech has...

    It's all about values... Bobby Jindal was chosen to deliver the Republican response to Obama's state of the union address, at this critical juncture in our nation's history. What does that mean? Two Things: 1) The Republican party is not as dumb as recent events have tricked some of us into thinking. That sounds condescending, I know, but let's not kid ourselves. The idea that Sarah Palin is qualified for anything over the depth of mayor of a medium sized town (which is basically what Alaska is, except with more anarchists), is a laughable one. Conservatives, although I know many...

    Vanity post, yes, but I have to wonder about the sound breaks in Bobby Jindal's rebuttal talk tonight and why they were there. I've never seen this before in years of watching these things, and it seemed almost deliberate. Does anybody know which network controlled the pool feed tonight on Jindal's response?

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican leaders continued their attacks on President Barack Obama's handling of the economy Tuesday, calling it irresponsible and certain to increase taxes and federal debt. Responding in advance to Obama's televised speech to a joint session of Congress, top Republicans said the president relies too heavily on spending, and not enough on tax cuts, to try to revive the gasping economy. They said they want to work with Obama, and sometimes blamed congressional Democrats more than him. But their criticisms were sharp and plentiful. "The way to lead is not to raise taxes and put more money...

    Another disgusting display of blatant Liberal Media bias. I hate MS-NBC. Seriously, the network is destroying our nation. As Gov. Jindal prepares to give the Republican response to Obama's address, an MSNBC host or producer was heard off camera muttering "Oh God." The remark came after host Keith Olbermann paused the panel's discussion as Gov. Jindal was walking to the camera.

    Jindal: As I grew up, my mom and dad taught me the values that attracted them to this country -- and they instilled in me an immigrant's wonder at the greatness of America. As a child, I remember going to the grocery store with my dad. Growing up in India, he had seen extreme poverty. And as we walked through the aisles, looking at the endless variety on the shelves, he would tell me: 'Bobby, Americans can do anything.'

    Here is full video of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's Republican Response Speech tonight to President Barack Obama's Address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Jindal set forth unequivocally that the strength of America in not the Government, but the people. He called on Americans to continue to believe in the ability of Americans to overcome any challenge, and pledged that Republicans will stand strong for the free market principles that made America the most...
