The Louisiana Democratic Party has taken a shot at Republican Governor Bobby Jindal over the religious liberty legislation he supports. Here is an email from this morning the party blasted:
Perhaps a little less valedictory but mostly predictably, Gov. Bobby Jindal gave his swan song State of the State address to open the 2015 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature, determined to go out in his own way, in his own time, both putting a period on his attempted transformation of the state and starting a new chapter outside of it.

As the Fax-Net was going to press on Monday, April 13, the 2015 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature was convening at in Baton Rouge. It has a lot of work to do before it adjourns at on .
Many of us been called “Bobby Jindal haters”.
We’ve been explaining now for years that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is not only far-removed from being presidential material, but, because of his own personal failings, he is light-years away from being gubernatorial quality.
The Louisiana legislative session begins next week. There has been much discussion about the budget, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal’s agenda, other political trends and issues. No doubt, Louisiana is facing one of the most daunting challenges in his modern history with its budget issues.
The question arises with Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal on the presidential campaign trail, who will take the lead? Can we expect a revolt of some type with the built-up frustration of legislators and the public.
Louisiana’s lawmakers should not let the bigots and those whose faiths are by convenience win by failing to pursue legislation to clarify protection of religious freedom.
While the news media focuses upon the major Louisiana budget gap of roughly $1.6B, hard decisions need to be made, within a backdrop that voters might not understand the enormity of the budget cuts needed and the changes that need to be made to get through the upcoming legislative session.
Other than the Louisiana Legislators (and others), trying to somehow fill-in a $1.6B budget hole, arguably, the worse in modern Louisiana history, there are other matters on the legislative and political plate that will both impact and which will be the effect of what occurs during the session.
I know that tweet stalking is a kinky way to follow the news. But, in the new era of digital communications, it beats watching Fox News and MSNBC during the afternoons.
Sometimes, there is no better way to pass the day than sitting down with some "good political reads". Let me throw in, some great tweets, too.
Today is no exception.
