Edwards gets Vets PAC backing; Jindal gets skimmed
 

Jindal-Meet-the-pressIt is a progressive sign for the Democrats Louisiana gubernatorial campaign. 

Rep. John Bel Edwards secured the endorsement this week of VoteVets PAC, a progressive veterans group boasting over 400,000 members. Edwards, a West Point graduate who served eight years of active duty with the U.S. Army as an Airborne Ranger, won their support on the strength of his record in the legislature as a champion for his fellow veterans.

 

 

“John Bel Edwards hasn’t forgotten where he’s come from, and he’s always been there for his fellow vets,” Jon Soltz, an Iraq War veteran and Chairman of VoteVets.org said in a press release distributed by the group. “But, more than that, John Bel has shown that serving all people and America, with honor, is in his blood.  He will make an incredible Governor – one who Louisiana and its veterans can be proud to call a friend.”

“This endorsement is a ringing tribute to John Bel Edwards’ selfless service to his country and to the people of Louisiana,” said Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, Chairwoman of the Louisiana Democratic Party. “John Bel Edwards is exactly what Louisiana needs to clean up after the disastrous Bobby Jindal administration.”

GETTING SKIMMED

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has gotten skimmed.

Skimm is a online publication that asks questions of various individuals, and in this case candidates for US President. 

Here is a sample:

SO WHY SHOULD AMERICA HIRE YOU?

I think America is ready to hire a doer, not a talker. We’ve got a lot of people that are “talking” who are running for president. We’ve got a talker in the White House today. I’m the only candidate that has offered detailed plans on health care, on energy, on education, on our foreign policy….Secondly, I’ve got a track record of proven results. [Louisiana’s] actually already cut the size of our budget [by] 26%. ...We’ve got a top ten state for private sector job creation. Look, if folks are looking for a candidate who’s just going to manage the slow decline of our country, I’m not that candidate. If they’re looking for somebody who will go to DC and make big changes, I’m the guy to do that. I’ve already done it in Louisiana, I’ll do it in DC.

WHO SHOULD WE CALL FOR A REFERENCE?

I’d call my wife, Supriya. She’s my best friend. She’s a straight shooter. She’ll be honest, but she’s also my best friend.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST STRENGTH?

I’m not afraid of taking on big, complex programs. When I was elected governor, we were coming out of Katrina. We had had 25 years in a row of out-migration. We’ve now had seven years in a row of in-migration. We’ve got more people working there and earning a higher income than we have ever had before. So, I’m not afraid to take on the big complex problems, and I think that’s what we need in DC right now...We’ll be the next Greece if we don’t grow the private sector economy.

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST WEAKNESS?

I’m impatient. I’ve been told my entire life I need to slow down, I speak too quickly.

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.”
