jindal-waveWe all know that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is a traveler.  He seems to be constantly crisscrossing the country in his unlikely and quixotic quest to obtain national office.  But now he says he is also the unrivaled champion of governors who travel all over the Bayou State.  In a recent interview to the Monroe News-Star, Jindal is quoted saying:  “I believe I’ve been to more places as governor than any other governor before me inside the state of Louisiana.”  All the governors I have known, going back to John McKeithen, would strongly disagree.

Hillary-Clinton-benghaziby Jim Brown

It’s going to take a lot more than old emails to derail Hillary Clinton’s grasp of the Democratic presidential nomination next year.  Few voters really care how she communicated with her staff while serving as Secretary of State.  Republicans think they are circling the wagons in major attack mode.  But if they look in their own backyard, a number of GOP presidential wannabes, including Louisiana’s fair haired quixotic candidate Bobby Jindal, have the same problem of not following the law when it comes to producing emails.

London Mayor Boris Johnson came out swinging against Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s claims about Muslim “no-go zones” on Friday, calling the governor’s recent remarks on the subject “complete nonsense” and suggesting that Jindal may need “some sort of gentle education.”

During a speech at the Henry Jackson Society in London last month, the likely 2016 presidential candidate echoed other conservatives in claiming that European countries like Britain harbor “no-go zones” where Muslim clerics enforce Sharia law and non-Muslims are not allowed to enter.

What mind-set leads one to argue that cutting higher education funds (while calling it “reform”) strengthens a state?  Is downsizing faculty related, in the conservative lexicon, to the hallowed principle of slashing government bureaucracy?  Seriously, is it?

As for Jindal, after going to London to establish foreign policy credentials, and succeeding only in embarrassing himself with his broad-brush anti-Muslim comments, he came home to speak at the “American Principles Project,” a conservative group seeking influence over public school issues.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has unveiled a 42-page proposal to reform American education at the national level, one of the clearest signs yet that he is laying the groundwork to jump into the 2016 presidential primary.

At the heart of his proposal is a total repudiation of Common Core, as well as a general rollback of federal authority, increased school choice options for parents and greater administrative freedom for educators.
