Jindal Ranked High On VP Lists, Hits Speech Road, Posted By Critics
Written by 

Jindal-GE-talkLouisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might have been panned last week due to his appearance in New York as the Keynote Speaker, but his name still rings many bells as the possible Vice President choice on the GOP ticket with Mitt Romney,  the presumptive Republican candidate for President.

 

 

Last week, Jindal, was relatively high, No. 6, on the list in a CNN/ORC poll of Republicans as their choice to be Romney’s vice president.

Here are the poll results as per the Washington Post:

Rice led the field with 26 percent, followed by: former senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania (21 percent); Florida’s Sen. Rick Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (tied 14 percent); Wisconsin’s Rep. Paul Ryan (8 percent); Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (5 percent); and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (1 percent). Ohio’s Sen. Rob Portman got an asterisk.

Today, the National Post placed him within the top five stating, “The focus of the greatest speculation has been on five big names in the party: Three are Ohio Senator Rob Portman, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, chairman of the House of Representatives Budget Committee.

Rounding out the top five are New Jersey’s Christie and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

Jindal, once again, will be in the limelight as he will  deliver the keynote address at next month's school choice Summit.  Jindal will reflect on Louisiana’s recent school choice expansion and stress the importance of continuing to increase educational options during a speech at the American Federation for Children's third annual National Policy Summit, to be held on May 3-4 in Jersey City, New Jersey.  

Why does Louisiana have a budget problem, once again?

According to Jan Moeller, former reporter for the Times Picayune who covered the Louisiana legislature, the culprit is not spending but is revenues.

Moeller, who is now the Director of the Louisiana Budget Project has called the budget problem a “self-inflicted wound”.

 

As the national media are clearly impressed with the Louisiana Governor, others in Louisiana are voicing their opinions to the contrary on the Internet. Here are just a few posts:

Dear Patricia Haynes Smith, please don't give up on your anti-bullying bill. SHAME ON YOU BOBBY JINDAL and the blasted Louisiana Family Forum (Gene Mills) for gutting the bill once again. Your bigotry is sickening and your reasoning transparent. A bill that should be a no-brainer is shot down once again by those who have no brains.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
