    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...

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...

    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...

    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...

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...

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.

    DNC Requests Records Related to Palin, Romney, Seven Other Possible 2012 Contenders. 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]."
  • Meg Whitman and the GOP's emerging austerity caucus

    (snip) Whitman is representative of an emerging Republican type — what you might call the austerity caucus. Flamboyant performers like Sarah Palin get all the attention, but the governing soul of the party is to be found in statehouses where a loose confederation of uber-wonks have become militant budget balancers. Just as welfare reformers of the 1990s presaged compassionate conservatism, so the austerity brigades presage the national party's next chapter. Mitch Daniels, the governor of Indiana who I think is most likely to win the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, is the spiritual leader. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey...

    The fiscal conservative-libertarians at Cato Institute have issued a report card for current governors, and they aren’t exactly generous with the praise. If a C is the minimum passing grade, then just 27 out of 50 states manage to keep from failing the test. At the top of the list, the Wall Street Journal reports, are at least two presidential aspirants — Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindal, and a third that gets a B, Mitch Daniels: The Cato report card gives the lowest grades to Governors who proposed or enacted the biggest tax and spending increases, while Governors who cut...
  • Baton Rouge - New Orleans train needn’t be bullet

    The biggest enemy of doing something WELL is trying to do it BETTER. For years I have been touting a rail service (Carnival Express) between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, but for some reason the only proponents who have surfaced thus far insist on having a multimillion-dollar, high-speed train that will require a new, expensive, high-maintenance-cost rail system. This proposed zippy train would make one stop between Baton Rouge and downtown New Orleans. It is roughly 45 miles to Gramercy (a good halfway point). Can you imagine a train leaving Baton Rouge, reaching its cruising speed of 120 mph as...

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said this weekend that he is "absolutely" running for reelection next year. The Louisiana governor, who has sometimes been mentioned as a GOP presidential candidate in 2012, said he fully intends to seek a second term. "I'm absolutely running for reelection," Jindal said during an interview with a local NBC affiliate. "You know, there's been a lot of speculation: would I run for another office, would I go to Washington, D.C.? I'm interested in helping to lead our state."

    "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...
