The Big Moment For Georges, Jindal and Louisiana
Written by 



Down here in Louisiana, eyes today are on the Internet.

That is likely where the news will break as the state and some feel the nation will know if John Georges will take on Bobby Jindal in the Race For the Louisiana Governor—Part Deaux.

So far, despite the efforts made by the Democratic Party, the candidates who have qualified so far and others, no opponent with name recognition, experience and more than anything else, money, has ponied up to the Secretary of State bar and paid the qualifying fee.

 But then, there is John Georges.

If multi-millionaire John Georges wants to take a ride in the spotlight (at least for the next sixty days or so), he will have to say “I’m in”.   

Should he say aye, or “I” to the Mansion run there will be happy people who, if anything, want an election.

There will also be quite a number of others who will say “you’re kidding—Georges can’t win, so why try?   Nobody can beat Bobby”.

Since Bayoubuzz broke the story Tuesday that Georges is giving serious consideration as to whether he would take the dive, I have heard from the elated who want him to take on the current Governor to those who believe his entry is, well, buffoonery.

For most of us, it will be a side show of politics; Another campaign;  More excitement;  And, yes, more people angry at one another as they take respective political sides.

To one person, however, the count down to the decision must be unnerving.

That person is no other than Governor Bobby Jindal who has more money in his election campaign than he can count.

From recent indications, he has over 8 million greenbacks due to well-earned campaigning on the roads of Louisiana and Elsewhere USA.

Should Georges decide against the run, he can save some of that money for a rainy day on the campaign trail and throw some dough to worthy republican causes.

Should Georges sign the qualifying papers and deposit his ten million dollars “chump change” for a chance to rent the keys to the fourth floor, all of that Jindal campaign money could be exhausted come late November.

That scenario would surely mean that the current Governor will spend more days in venues such as Houston or Philadelphia, rubbing hands with those wanting to help him fuel his future endeavors.

So, the clock is ticking and we can all guess…and bet.

Where would I put my two-bits?

I'm betting on Neaux.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
