Louisiana Jindal Pushes Book, Self Despite Drop In Poll
Written by 

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was back on the personal promotional tour this weekend.  The Louisiana governor flew up to New York for a “Bobby’s Club” fundraiser for his Louisiana campaign.  Jindal appeared on Bloomberg’s Al Hunt’s Political Capital television show where Jindal  discussed his book and other national issues.  On Sunday, Governor Jindal continued his book tour but this time in Baton Rouge.

Although the governor has been criticized for focusing upon external matters such as promoting his book Leadership and Crise , campaigning for republican governors, on Thursday, he said trips outside of Louisiana are good for the state of Louisana.

Jindal said, “I think it’s actually good for Louisiana. I went out and actually supported candidates who agree with us”. 

However, in a recent SMOR poll, Jindal’s favorables has plummeted  since the spring of 2010 and now his poll numbers are similar to that of Louisiana u.S. Senator, Mary Landrieu who was heavily criticized across the nation last year during the health care debate.

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.
