Just maybe Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the national GOP, the Louisiana GOP and others should get their facts right before they fan the flames of fear for their own political purposes.
Plenty of questions and theoretical remedies, false hopes, but no real solutions.
The United States Senate and the US elections are now two weeks away. I hear promises, attacks, and commercials by groups who have no real interest in Louisiana at all and who provide no real answers. Their goal are to win at all costs. They throw out red meat knowing there are plenty of angry and hungry dogs ready for the next scrap.
Landrieu nears 50%
Usually, a poll conducted on the U.S. Senate race by a conservative entity is not good news for incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth six-year term.
Not so in the case of a recent survey by the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF). It describes itself “as a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we're not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.”
Pity the poor American Christian. From every side, he is persecuted, set upon by government bureaucrats, forced to do this, required to do that -- denied his God-given right to pay low taxes and live as he pleases.
With former Democratic Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards running for US Congress in a conservative district, a question in many minds is whether the reddening of the State of Louisiana, since his last election, would force Edwards to moderate his views.

With the GOP supporting Bill Cassidy against Mary Landrieu, is there any push-back against the Louisiana GOP for that action despite two other Republican candidates also running in the upcoming US Senate race? WGSO's Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz's Stephen Sabludowsky discuss these issues in today's WGSO-Bayoubuzz webcast.
Starting on Thursday, New Orleans will be hosting the Republican Leadership Conference once again. This is the third RLC to be held in the Big Easy. Once again, the conference will feature some of the biggest names in the GOP.
According to a report by Thomas Ferraro, Sen. Mary Landrieu accused Republicans yesterday of "being more interested in exploiting the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline project as an election issue than in voting to build it."
The debate venue has shifted, if only for a moment, away from healthcare to Energy as US Senator Mary Landrieu unleashed a one-minute commercial showcasing her “fighting” for Louisiana in the energy arena, especially as she has assumed the powerful spot of Chairman of the Senate energy committee.
Congressman Vance McAllister remains in the news as the second full week of his “Kissing Congressman” scandal continues.
If there was ever a question whether the push by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere has persuaded the Congressman to quit, recent events indicate that he will continue to remain in Congress, with business as usual.
