The late comedian Brother Dave Gardner once said, “If a man’s down, kick him. If he survives it, he has a chance to rise above it.”
Well, Gov. Bobby is definitely down and we would be remiss if we did not accommodate Bro. Dave’s sage advice to the fullest extent possible.

The amount of money being spent these days to win an elected office at the local, state, and national levels just boggles the mind. Obtaining power certainly does not come cheap.
While Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy has not declared which statewide office he might be seeking this fall with statewide elections, he has a healthy war-chest, in hand.
Kennedy reported today that his campaign committee has raised over $4 million in the current election cycle for use in a future statewide campaign.
Republican Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne will report having raised more than $2,200,000 towards the race for Governor when he files his year-end finance report with the Board of Ethics later today.
More good and very bad news for Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal and for the State of Louisiana.
The good news: today, the S&P and Moody's affirmed Louisiana rating in general obligation bonds.
Louisiana Treasurer John Kennedy invoking a misbehaving child, figuratively spanked Presidential hopeful, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, for Moody’s credit outlook decline from stable to negative issued today.
Governor Bobby Jindal has been claiming that the massive $1.6B budget debt for 2016 is largely due to the decline in oil prices.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has issued a statement regarding the good and bad news associated with the anticipated Moody's Investors Services rating and outlook.
Clearly, the hottest Republican in the country today is Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. After a well received speech to Congressman Steve King’s Freedom Summit, Walker has earned media attention and skyrocketed in the polls. Currently, he is in second place in New Hampshire and is leading in Iowa, while he is gaining ground on Florida Governor Jeb Bush nationally.
Is Governor Bobby Jindal wrongfully being blasted for the astounding $1.6 B looming budget deficit Louisiana is facing? Or is he and the State of Louisiana’s unfortunate mere victims to the cascading price of crude oil?
