"There are no secrets that time does not reveal"--Jean Racine
Lately, the candidates and likely candidates for US president have been peppered with questions about the past wisdom of the Iraq War. One of those likely candidates, Governor Jindal took the time to pen a column for the National Review, openly sharing his views on the issue “Iran isn’t Iraq , and this isn’t 2003.

That hateful, smugly, self-serving Executive Order 15-8 signed by Grovernor Jindal on Tuesday could ultimately blow up in his face, although his tenure as grovernor will be long over by the time the courts get around to ruling on his license to openly discriminate against gays.

Gotta tell you. If you think Louisiana’s Governor and Presidential aspirant has gotten much from his latest transparent pandering to the religious right of Iowa, New Hampshire and “My religion is better than yours USA”, think again.
The Louisiana Democratic Party and a gay-rights group slammed Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for announcing an executive order he is issuing after controversial legislation he supported failed in the House of Representatives. Here are the statements:
While it was named the “Marriage and Conscience Act” and while it purportedly promoted and protected religious freedom, it did so much more more and was for all purposes--defeated, for now.
After 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.
As a state of Louisiana struggles with its enormous budget issue and as its governor, Bobby Jindal continues to make national headlines in his run for president, some are asking how do we deal with a budget crisis like this?

On Tuesday, Bernie Pinsonat and SMOR released its new poll (the spring poll) during the middle of the legislative session from hell. The state is 1.6B in a hole. Governor Bobby Jindal appears to have one foot in the room and three-feet out of the door en route to Iowa and New Hampshire. The prospects of dramatic cuts, seemingly impossible cuts, are knocking at the windows from outside.
