Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is mad. Really mad! He’s had his fill of all these hyphenated-Americans ballyhooing and expressing pride in their ethnic heritage. Jindal joined a group of 18 presidential wannabes in New Hampshire over the weekend trying to impress Republican diehards. And he didn’t hold back on his distain for those who treasure their heritage.
On twitter today, the Louisiana gubernatorial election meet the US presidential election.
Bobby Jindal has promised to find money to address the funding crisis facing Louisiana’s public colleges and universities but besides the obvious dire financial straits in which the state currently finds itself, two important obstacles must be overcome by our absentee governor: the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and Grover Norquist.

It's time for action.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal might want to either double down on leaving Louisiana in better shape that it currently finds itself or somehow, he might want work the Jindal-spin to make himself more of a presidential contender than he really is--if the latest news out of Kochville USA means anything.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Republican state Rep. Mike Johnson of Bossier are feeling the heat over the religious freedom bill introduced in the current session of the Legislature by the freshman representative.
If Gov. Bobby Jindal wishes to continue to put himself on a path to a run for the White House in 2016 and to promote good state policy simultaneously, there’s something he can get behind in the area of foreign policy during the Louisiana Legislature’s current regular session that’s good for both the state and country.
Five years since the human, psychological, health, environmental and legal horrors arising from the BP oil spill incident that occurred April 20, 2010.
Various individuals and organizations have made statements commemorating the five year anniversary.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal received more bad news as the Louisiana legislature plows through committees trying to figure out a way to fix the budget which problems certainly must be impacting the presidential hopeful’s crusade for the White House.
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.
