Crouere: Delusional, "extreme narcissist" Jindal calling Trump kettle black
Written by 

jindal-trump 3It was quite a scene at the National Press Club yesterday as Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal joined the other Republican presidential candidates in attacking frontrunner Donald Trump.

 However, unlike the other presidential aspirants, Jindal directed a series of personal insults against Trump.

According to Jindal, Trump is “a narcissist…he's an egomaniac.” He said that Trump is “full of foolishness and nonsense.” He also claimed that “Donald Trump is not a serious candidate. The only thing he believes in is himself.”

Wow, this is another perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black, politically speaking. Louisiana voters know full well that Jindal is an extreme narcissist. He practically started campaigning for President on the day he was elected Governor of Louisiana. He put his own selfish political interests over the needs and desires of his constituents. This is why his approval rating in Louisiana registers an abysmal 32%.

After almost eight years of Governor Jindal, Louisiana is suffering from a series of problems made worse by an absentee chief executive. Currently, the state faces a growing budget deficit, a shortfall in the successful TOPS college scholarship program and a huge gap in Medicaid funding. There are a host of other problems such as crumbling infrastructure, a growing unemployment rate, and coastal erosion, violent crime surging in the state’s major cities and a true crisis in higher education with no end in sight to crippling budget cuts.

Jindal, who appeared in the State Capitol on only the first and last days of the last legislative session, provided no leadership on these critical issues. His agenda to solve the budget mess, promote religious liberty and stop the Common Core program in the last legislative session was a total failure. Louisiana legislators have about as much regard for Bobby Jindal as the voters of the state, in other words, very little.

To deal with the budget mess, legislators passed a plethora of tax increases, the most in state history, in an unconstitutional manner that will be challenged in court. Instead of stopping the madness, Jindal approved of the tax and fee increases, but encouraged the use of gimmicks and accounting tricks to hide the true nature of the extra taxes.

In the race to thankfully replace the term limited Jindal, Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne is quipping that he is running as the incumbent. Just in 2015 alone, Dardenne has served as “acting Governor” of Louisiana for 104 days while Jindal has been out of Louisiana pursuing the pipe dream known as his presidential campaign. Clearly, Jindal has not been earning his salary and should return the funds to the people of Louisiana. To make matters worse, the taxpayers have to cover the cost of the Governor’s State Police security detail whenever he leaves Louisiana, adding further insult to injury.

In the 2016 GOP presidential race, Jindal is right, there is a candidate who is not “serious,” but it is not Donald Trump, who is the clear frontrunner. The one who is not “serious” is Bobby Jindal, who is languishing at less than one percent in the polls nationally and will be relegated to the “kiddie” table once again for the next GOP presidential debate. Jindal’s status as a minor candidate was mentioned by Trump when he tweeted a priceless answer to the Governor, “I only respond to people that register more than 1% in the polls. I never thought he had a chance and I've been proven right."

In his speech yesterday, Jindal claimed that Trump was full of “nonsense,” but what is truly nonsensical is the thought of a person who failed miserably as Governor of Louisiana being promoted to President of the United States. Anyone so delusional should not be hired as President, but, as so often said by Donald Trump, “fired” by the voters.

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.
