I admit, I am one of others living in Louisiana, who believes that Governor Bobby Jindal simply cannot be believed. I'm sorry, but, after following him now for the past eight years, I have found that all too often, he makes claims that border on truth. He has a gift. When confronted, often he artfully changes the subject by engaging in long discourses at machine-gun speed, whole paragraphs at a time--until the questioner gives up, runs out of time or even forgets why he's there in the first place.
After traveling to Europe on a part economic development, and unquestionably a political excursion, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal most likely is seeking friendlier skies.
The two faces of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal continued today as he delivered his own ”state of the Islamic Union” address in London. He has told the world that immigrants should assimilate into the mother country rather than cultivating their own culture and religion.
The debate over what some people say will be a $1.4 billion budget shortfall, cuts and higher education (once again), and a governor using state money to help launch a presidential run can be heard often at the state capitol in Baton Rouge. Today, that conversation is being heard overseas, in London.
The debate over Louisiana Congressman and Majority Whip, Steve Scalise, and what he did or didn’t do 12-years ago has turned into a political partisan skirmish rather than an exercise to discover the truth.
The Steve Scalise-David Duke-Euro saga is getting curioser and stranger by the moment.
Yesterday, I asked the question, how did Steve Scalise admit to speaking at an event yet not remember it?
It is the Christmas holiday season throughout the world particularly in Washington DC where the political temperatures are always red-hot with anger and with communications between the two major parties, the Republicans and Democrats, always ice-cold.
Much of the state's attention is upon preparing for Santa and recovering from the New Orleans Saints bizarre season. However, there is still politics for those looking for it.
Once again, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, in his quest to become president of the United States, has made a statement expecting the world to simply accept the truth of his assertion simply because the statement is his.
