DNC expresses concern over Jindal's dogged presidential campaign efforts and exploratory committee
Written by 

jindal-faithAfter Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal announced his launching of his Presidential Exploratory committee, the Democratic National Committee expressed its deep concern over the upcoming Jindal bid--by releasing a statement from the National Press Secretary Holly Schulman.

 Over the past seven years since Barack Obama became the US President, Jindal has led the pack in criticizing the president's record.  However, now, Jindal is currently facing a $1.6B budget deficit, amounting to  roughly 4% of the state's budget and higher education and healthcare are not at risk of further and serious  damage to its infrastructure. 

The governor's popularity is hovering between 25 to 31+ percent, depending upon the poll and if those polled are "likely voters" or voters. 

Still, Jindal, who has spent roughly one-half of his time in office on the national campaign trail appears unbothered by his lack of popularity.  Today's announcement that he has  launched his exploratory committee, is evidence of his dogged determination to lead the nation as its chief executive and commander in chief. 

Here is the DNC statement:

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.
