  • Jindal: Rick Perry Has Proven Track Record President Obama Lacks

    FoxNews ^ | Sean Hannity and Bobby Jindal
    GOV. BOBBY JINDAL: I think James Carville got it right. There's one thing he got wrong. In that op- ed, he said that President Obama should fire a bunch of people. The person who needs to be fired is President Obama. It starts at the top. They've got so many left-wing radicals in the White House. Sean, you've said it early and you were you right, he's the most liberal president we've ever elected. The reality is, this election is as important as the 1980 election between President Reagan and President Carter, that's how important is to make sure that...

    Big name support came Monday for the two men at the top of the GOP race. Rick Perry picks up the endorsement of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Mitt Romney gets a new national co-chair in a former rival. "There are many reasons I'm endorsing Mitt Romney for president," said Tim Pawlenty in remarks delivered in South Carolina. Pawlenty left his mark on the 2012 race with the phrase Obamneycare but said Monday Romney is the candidate who can turn the economy around. Pawlenty ended his bid last month, out of money and in third place in the Iowa Straw...

    Tampa, Florida – Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is backing Rick Perry for president, a major endorsement for the Texas governor as the campaign for the Republican nomination enters the crucial fall stretch of the primary calendar, a source tells CNN. Jindal is on his way to Florida and will be Perry's guest at Monday night's "Tea Party Republican Debate" broadcast on CNN from Tampa, the source said. Jindal is expected to formally make the announcement prior to the debate.

    Alternate headline -- Perry to Romney: I See Your T-Paw, and Raise You a Jindal. No sooner had I completed my public rumination over Tim Pawlenty's somewhat curious decision to support Mitt Romney than Rick Perry's campaign swiped Romney's endorsement thunder in a major way: Louisiana Gov.

    Speaking today at the RNC meeting in Tampa, Jindal reprised his remarks on how to run against a president loathed by the right but viewed fondly, at least on a personal level, by much of the country's political center. "I have no doubt that President Obama loves this country, I have no doubt that he spends every day trying to make things better, and I have no doubt that President Obama wants the best for this country."

    BATON ROUGE -- An effort started six months ago to recall Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal has fizzled, but the Opelousas man behind the petition will continue trying to oust the governor by running against him this fall.Ron Ceasar would have needed to gather more than 908,000 verified signatures by early next week to get a recall election against Jindal. Fewer than five dozen have been registered with the Louisiana secretary of state's office."We would need all of them by the deadline set. We have only 55 at present, and the deadline is July 5th," Sailor Jackson, a spokesman for Secretary...

    NEW ORLEANS — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal diverged from the red meat attacks on President Obama that have characterized the Republican Leadership Conference to caution conservative activists that they ought not demonize the president in the fashion some liberals did President Bush. Jindal recalled what he said were the "shrill, absurd and negative rhetoric" employed by the left during the eight years Bush was in office. "We must not mimic their shallow approach," he said to modest applause in a Friday afternoon speech here. Jindal, who just turned 40, is up for re-election this fall and is widely assumed by...

Ciaramella Top Republicans will flock to New Orleans today for the Republican Leadership Conference, where presidential hopefuls and GOP leaders will try to woo the party faithful during the three-day event. The annual conference, formerly the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, has become a bellwether for the Republican Party, especially because of its audience straw polls. Presidential candidates speaking this year include Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman. (DNC chair looking forward to working...

    Throughout the course of this year’s Louisiana budget debate, a storm has been brewing over how to resolve the state’s $1.2 billion overspending problem. At various points an internet sales tax, 194% tax hike on cigarettes, and restoring spending cuts were all floated as partial resolutions. Fortunately, Gov. Jindal’s pledge to “oppose and veto any and all efforts to raise taxes” has helped keep legislators focused on their primary task – reining in spending - with the exception of HB 591: a $12 million cigarette tax increase that Gov. Jindal promptly vetoed today. To override the governor’s veto, which hasn’t...
  • Vanity: Sweet Poetic Justice if Rubio or Jindal are on National Ticket (Citizenship Question)

    What sweet poetic justice it would be if Marco Rubio or Bobby Jindal ended up in the #2 spot on the GOP Ticket in 2012. Neither of their parents were U.S. Citizens when Marco and Bobby were born. Therefore, the "Natural Born Citizen" question would come into play; although both were born in this country; on American soil. The Libs and the media would crap down both legs over this.

    Rising stars of GOP in doubt because parents from overseas Are U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal natural-born citizens of the United States, and thus eligible for the presidency? Plotkin says Jindal's mother became a U.S. citizen Sept. 21, 1976, and his father was naturalized 10 years later on Dec. 4, 1986. It's a similar situation for Rubio, as his press secretary Alex Burgos said the senator's parents "were permanent legal residents of the U.S." at the time Marco was born in 1971. Then four years after Marco was born, "Mario and Oriales Rubio became...
  • Confirmed: Jindal and Rubio NOT Natural Born Citizens

    MIAMI, Fla. – Are U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal natural-born citizens of the United States, and thus eligible for the presidency? It's a simple question, but the answer may not be so easy. The next national election is less than 18 months away, and both rising Republican stars have been touted as potential contenders for either the No. 1 or No. 2 spot on a presidential ticket. But their eligibility is in doubt since both men's parents were not U.S. citizens at the time their future political children were born, WND can reveal. That...

    Original posted at ~~~~~~~~ Gov. Bobby Jindahl is a good, conservative Governor for the State of Louisiana. Unfortunately, similar to Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Jindal cannot be classified as a natural-born citizen, and thus he also is not constitutionally eligible to run for President.  I know this is a sad thought for conservatives like myself, but if we wish to protect and uphold the Constitution, we must look to history for an explanation. Jindal was born in Louisiana, as his recently released birth certificate attests (below). However, at the time of his birth, both of his parents were recent...

    In a news conference in Baton Rouge Friday, Gov. Bobby Jindal said the Army Corps of Engineers has made it clear to him that it will order the Morganza Floodway to be opened on Saturday or on Sunday at the latest. “Now is the time to take action. Don’t delay, Don’t hope something will change,” Jindal said. Jindal said he has asked state officials to tell parish governments to begin notifying their residents in areas in the Atchafalaya River basin expected to be flooded to begin evacuations. Some parishes have told him that they will complete notifications of residents of...

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said that while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has not given specific time for opening the Morganza Spillway on the Mississippi River upstream from New Orleans to reduce the possibility of downstream flooding, state and local officials are taking action now to get prepared and constructing barriers to protect people and property from the flood. The Corps has said it would likely open the Spillway this weekend to divert Mississippi floodwaters into the Atchafalaya River basin, but it has not named a specific time for the opening. “We don’t have the time to wait for...
