Get Governor Bobby Jindal in front of a TV camera and simply move away--which is probably one of the "take aways" CNBC's Jim Cramer discovered earlier this week as the fast-talking money was no match for the Louisiana governor's ability to move words and ideas onto a viewing public.
jindal-differenceBATON ROUGE – On Monday, Governor Bobby Jindal delivered his address at the opening of the 2014 Regular Legislative Session. He presented his legislative priorities and highlighted individuals in the audience who have started new careers in Louisiana as a result of the state’s economic growth.
NOTE: Below was the Governor’s remarks as prepared for delivery.
As he faces the final two years of his term, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is weak at home and irrelevant nationally. It is crystal clear to anyone who has followed Jindal that he has a burning ambition to become President. Jindal started unofficially running for President the day he was elected Governor. While he regularly gives interviews to Fox News and other national media outlets, Jindal totally ignores media representatives in his home state. Instead of focusing on his powerful position as Governor of Louisiana, Jindal has continually neglected his constituents to campaign and fund raise throughout the country.
It has been another disastrous week for President Obama. In a new Fox News poll, the President’s approval rating is at 38 percent, the lowest score of his presidency. Americans are unhappy with his handling of the economy, healthcare, and foreign policy. In effect, people are dissatisfied with his entire agenda because nothing is working.
“Louisiana United States Congressman Edwin W. Edwards.”
If the “old sly gray Fox” has his way, that will be his name and title should the 86-year-old former Congressman and former four-term-ex-governor pulls off the totally unexpected.
Today, one of the big stories in the national media is that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has upgraded the past presidency of Jimmy Carter at the expense of the current White House inhabitant, Barack Obama.
It could be the most recognized American song worldwide. Go to a small Asian community were little or no English is spoken. Then start humming “You Are MySunshine.” More likely than not, the locals will join in singing along. Everyone knows the words to a down home tune written by a Louisiana country singer and movie star. And he was sworn in as Louisiana Governor seventy years ago this week.
Now that the Mardi Gras parades are history, rumor has it that spring is floating about and turning the corner bringing warmer temperatures, soon. This, I can't promise.
Considering the passion Gov. Bobby Jindal devoted to his big speech on religious liberty earlier this month at the Ronald Reagan Library, you’d think he would have been all over the airwaves this week.
The Maori King does not care that Kate Middleton and Prince William danced around last week in a London nightclub called "Bunga Bunga."
When you have as much mana, otherwise known as "sex energy," as the Maori King, who needs "Bunga Bunga?"
Besides, "Bunga Bunga" is an Australian thing– supposedly the Aborigines’ name for a place in eastern Australia by a lake. Or it might relate to the Bundjalung peoples who controlled the Australian northern coastal areas.
I mean, "Bundja Bundja" sure sounds like "Bunga Bunga," doesn’t it?
