Landrieu issues statement on racism charge, Jindal does Fox News
Written by 

jindal-landrieuThe political theatrics continue during the days before Election Day.

 

Senator Mary Landrieu, who has been blasted by Governor Jindal, the GOP,  her opponents,  the right wing media has issued a statement regarding her recent statement she made to Chuck Todd of NBC.  Watch the statement and interview

Here is the statement, Landrieu released today.


“The main reason the President has struggled here is because his energy policies are not in line with the people of Louisiana. We are a pro-drilling, pro-oil, gas state. The offshore moratorium was extremely unpopular and, in my opinion, wholly unwarranted. It made a lot of people angry and put many businesses at risk. In addition, the south has not always been the friendliest or easiest place for African Americans to advance, and it's been a difficult place for women to be recognized as the leaders we are. Everyone knows this is the truth, and I will continue to speak the truth even as some would twist my words seeking political advantage.”

Governor Jindal also forward by email an excerpt from a TV interview on Fox News

Thank you for having me. I thought Mary's comments, our senator’s comments, were ridiculous and offensive. She is basically calling the people of Louisiana –calling all of us in the south racists. She owes us an apology. Here in Louisiana and across the south, we don't think in terms of black and white, in terms of racial colors. The only colors that matter down here are red, white and blue.On Saturday night, [it’s] purple and gold as we cheer the LSU Tigers on to victory. It's not about race. There are many folks who disagree with this president's policies, not just in Louisiana, but across all 50 states. It is just simply wrong. It is ridiculous to call people racist who happen to disagree with this president's policies.

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.
