On the day that Jon Bel Edwards criticized Jindal-based "dishonest" budgeting, the governor appears to be reforming another core Jindal-attrribute of his administration, this one, being a Jindal-advocated Common Core lawsuit.
Over the past two years, when Jindal was actively promoting to national audiences that Louisiana has been balancing its budget, this year once again has proven, his balanced budgets are surreal events. Louisiana current budget is roughly 750 under-balanced.
The biggest loser in the recent Iowa presidential caucuses was not Donald Trump or any of the other candidates who did not meet expectations in garnering voters. No, the title for the real loser was, hands down, the state of Louisiana. Because of both selfishness and a lack of any creative thinking, state officials in the Bayou State passed on the chance of receiving worldwide publicity and having hundreds of millions of dollars poured into the state’s economy. Simply put, Louisiana blew the chance of being the first presidential primary state and reaping all the benefits.
Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said he was cutting government but as we know, he raided our funds dry, used one-time revenues, followed orders of Grover Norquist, stayed in Iowa and in the New York Times and is now living in a near-million dollar mansion, while the rest of us pick up his fine mess.
Coal in the stocking?
Outgoing Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal seems to have left a stocking full of coal for new Democratic Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards.

Gov. John Bel Edwards hasn’t even issued the call yet for a special legislative session to deal with the state’s budgetary woes and already state lawmakers appear to have the collective attention span of a gypsy moth.
Is the incoming Louisiana Governor, John Bell Edwards, telling the truth about the severity of the budget which over the next year-and-a-half could be as deep as $2.6 billion short? According to Team Edwards, the budget is much more horrific than anticipated. Some believe the Jon Bel Edwards camp is not be candid about this issue. Others, especially some of the former Vitter supporters are outright calling him a liar.
Less than one week and counting for Bobby Jindal until he is called, the ex-Governor of Louisiana.
Happy New Years, Louisiana.
Welcome to the Jindal budget disaster of 2015-2016.
It looks as though Bobby Jindal’s former commissioner of administration Kristy Nichols will finally have to comply with state regulations. Or maybe not.
The Louisiana Board of Ethics, in typical fashion first put the kibosh on any effort by Kristy Kreme to lobby state government on behalf of her new employer—and then promptly withdrew the opinion.
Let the world know, there has never been a man sitting in the governor's chair, with so much potential to do right, than Bobby Jindal.
We all knew it. He was the superstar, the person who could, and would change Louisiana for the better, forever.
