Ever since it was launched in 1996, Fox News has enjoyed an ever growing television audience. Talk show host Rush Limbaugh often promoted Fox News in the early years of the network, helping to establish the connection with conservatives across the country. In fact, thanks to Rush and others on talk radio, Fox News enjoyed tremendous ratings growth over the last 19 years.
When Donald Trump first burst on the political scene two months ago as a presidential candidate, the analysts, commentators and pollsters who populate cable news programs, the so called “experts,” claimed it was all a publicity stunt. Then, they said he would never release his financial statements. Then, they said his controversial comments about immigration, Senator John McCain and Fox News Host Megyn Kelly would doom his campaign. Now, they are saying his lead cannot continue for his support has a “ceiling” and his campaign is a flash in the pan. Unfortunately for the “experts,” they are completely wrong on every one of these issues. Trump is solidifying his lead and is not going away, even though the liberal media and the Republican establishment wishes that he would disappear. Trump is upsetting their plan for the GOP to nominate another moderate candidate, such as former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and, once again, lose to the Democrats.

So far, the only candidate who has taken on “The Donald” has been Rand Paul.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might be debating the second-team candidates opponents when Fox News opens presidential debate season on August 6. According to ABC.com, Jindal is on the bubble and is tied for 12th with Rick Santorum.
I admit, I am one of others living in Louisiana, who believes that Governor Bobby Jindal simply cannot be believed. I'm sorry, but, after following him now for the past eight years, I have found that all too often, he makes claims that border on truth. He has a gift. When confronted, often he artfully changes the subject by engaging in long discourses at machine-gun speed, whole paragraphs at a time--until the questioner gives up, runs out of time or even forgets why he's there in the first place.
You’ve got to hand it to Gov. Bobby Jindal. If he ever knew when to shut up, he’s doing a dandy job of concealing that knowledge.
Team Jindal is an e-mail blast by an outfit calling itself Friends of Bobby Jindal providing those of us lucky enough to be on the mailing list a timely update on the governor’s travels, TV appearances, and op-ed writings. We’re not altogether certain how we managed to get on the mailing list but we’re glad we did.
If you think Gov. Bobby Jindal has bankrupted this state with his squirrely economic policies, you need to read this.
If you are the least bit concerned about his decimation of higher education, you need to read this.

Any successful stage magician must be adept at the art of misdirection so as to be able to successfully pull off his sleight of hand maneuvers while the audience’s eyes are focused elsewhere.
Sen. Mary Landrieu's name came up recently on MSNBC's "The Cycle." The Louisiana Senator was described as "tough as nails," and the reporters gave her good chances of keeping her seat in the Senate in November.
Just what is America’s favorite pastime? Is it politics or baseball? Politics has always been a major spectator sport, particularly here in my home state of Louisiana. But don’t sell baseball short. Not only has baseball been around longer than any of America’s professional team sports, the game’s highs and lows have been injected in national politics almost from the sport’s inception.
