Jindal On Louisiana TV, Fayard On Campaign Road To Where?
 

And Bobby Jindal is off..

On the campaign road and for now, perhaps not Washington D.C. Houston, Iowa, Michigan but on a TV near you.  Yes, near you, as in Louisiana. As he makes way to spend Stephen Sabludowsky, Bayoubuzz Publisherhis 9.3 million dollars in campaign money, the Louisiana Democratic Party is doing the political thing too.  It is criticizing his Jindal for hitting the tube with what it calls “slick DC-style ads” without any opponent and with much on his governing plate such as the current budget mess.

 

NOLA.com has reported that Jindal's chief of staff, Timmy Teepell, said the ad buy is in the six figures and is enough to ensure "everybody will have plenty of opportunities to see it."

Meanwhile, Kevin Franck, communications director of the Louisiana Democratic Party has much to say about the early Jindal media blitz:

“When an incumbent Governor starts pouring money into TV ads this far out from Election Day without a publicly declared opponent, it’s a sure sign he’s worried about his standing with Louisiana families.

“After presenting a budget based on a combination of one time funding and imaginary money and getting caught up in an unfolding ethics flap, these slick DC-style ads are simply an attempt to distract Louisiana voters from the fact that Jindal has spent more time touring the country to sell books and raise campaign cash than working to fix Louisiana’s budget mess."

Which means that Jindal will be touting his horn as the state debates the 1.6 billion dollar budget shortfall and while, to date, there is not a single opponent willing and perhaps able to take on the governor.  

Then, one “progressive” blog says that opportunity might fall to one Carolyn Fayard, who made a good show in the Lt. Governor’s race and who is being touted as the “new face” of the bayou political-land.

The Daily Kingfish said early this week, “According to well-placed Democratic sources, Caroline Fayard is seriously contemplating a run for Governor of the state of Louisiana.“

On her website, which is asking for contributions, is listed a link to the Daily Kingfish article.  Also, the website touts this message, “Caroline was recently mentioned by the Governor's Chief of Staff as a potential challenger to watch in this October's elections. To read the complete article follow this link: http://www.shreveporttimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011110316011.”

Only time will tell how much Governor Jindal will spend promoting a non-existent campaign race and how long Fayard will be pushing her race to October for an election seat, unknown.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
