Only days after the Gubernatorial primary October 24 2015, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal will be off on an international tour, of sorts. This time, it won’t be London where he last made noise in the foreign affairs arena.
Jindal, who has repeatedly said he is thinking and praying over the issue whether to run for US President will be joined by another potential Presidential candidate, and devout-Catholic, Rick Santorum.

In this series, I will compare Bobby Jindal’s pledges as a candidate in 2007 with his record in the Governor’s office. I began with the centerpiece of Jindal’s 2007 campaign, ethics reform, and today, I will be unpacking his 2007 campaign pledge for health care reform and compare it with his current stance against the Affordable Care Act.
Better late than never, never let a crisis go to waste, or whatever saying fits to describe an attempt to do what made far too much sense years ago, which for that reason didn’t get done, in the merging of the University of New Orleans and Southern University in New Orleans.
In a country of 330 million Americans, only 11, 000 people in the key 25-54 year old demographic were watching the afternoon programming on the disaster known as MSNBC in the last rating period. These horrific ratings were the lowest registered by the network in a decade. It was not much better at the other time periods for the early January ratings for the broadcast day on MSNBC averaged only 55,000 viewers.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal went on the attack against President Obama while refusing to condemn Rudy Giuliani over comments related to ISIS. Jindal, in a news release said Obama is "incapable of successfully executing his duties as our Commander in Chief".
As Louisiana ponders over how it will balance a budget with a $1.6B hole, the nation is wondering who might have a good chance to be the next President of the United States.
Looking at a just-released CBS Poll, the news for the Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, is not great, but not horrible, either.
My Louisiana governor has me puzzled again in his quixotic quest to be a player on the national stage. I thought Bobby Jindal was part of a Republican Party that tells government to get off our backs and mind its own business. But he now is apparently on a national pursuit to make us all homogeneous in how we act, live and speak. And when you come from Louisiana, he’s walking a slippery slope of being way too politically correct.
There is a game the military plays, often with supercomputers.

If you have siblings, you’ve likely played some version of this game from birth.
The four announced candidates for Lt. Governor have filed their respective campaign reports and there is a significant variance not only in their race, but in the amounts on hand.
As policy-makers scramble to find ways to make sure Louisiana can find enough money to spare itself, principally in higher education and health care, from drastic budget cuts comparing fiscal year 2015 to 2016, confusion reigns over what options politics will present -- which may play out over definitions.
