Bobby Jindal has been running for President since the day he was elected Governor of Louisiana. It has been a long process of national campaigning and neglecting his duties of Governor. He has traveled the country in a non-stop effort to get recognized by the elite network of GOP activists and donors. Unfortunately, Jindal has been going nowhere fast as he does not even register in many polls and many commentators forget to mention that he is even running for President.

Wackiness by omission and commission continue to illuminate Louisiana’s Fifth Congressional District contest, leaving the distinct possibility that the field remains entirely unsettled and the race unpredictable.

On Wednesday night this week, Gov. Bobby Jindal made a guest appearance in the season premiere of Duck Dynasty. The Governor has previously been very open about his fondness for the show and the Robertson family. When Phil Robertson, the family patriarch, was criticized for his viewpoints on homosexuality, Jindal went out and defended him. Furthermore, Gov. Jindal gave the family the Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence. The Robertsons were the first recipient of this award. The season premiere showed the awards ceremony.
It was a Republican mixed-bag of Tea Party, religion, conservative principles, Obama-blasting, Presidential hopeful competing, Mary Landrieu-pounding, TV-celebrity start for the Thursday evening edition of the Republican Leadership Conference held in New Orleans. The conference continues Friday at the New Orleans Hilton.
It is refreshing to see a public figure with enough guts to take on the liberals in our society today. Most celebrities who are criticized for making a politically incorrect statement will fold like a tent and immediately issue an apology. The aim is to rebuild their reputation with the media elite and get back in their good graces.
