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.
After IBM, the international technology and communications company (who has recently decided to invest in Louisiana), requested that Bobby Jindal modify his support for a controversial “religious freedom bill filed this legislative session, the gay-rights group, Equality Louisiana offered its own perspective:

The longer Jindal serves as governor, the greater a fabulist he becomes.

granddad had an admonition for someone (more than once, that someone was me) who he thought was running his mouth off a little too much: “Don’t let your alligator mouth overload your jaybird ass.”
Loosely translated, that means don’t go shooting off your mouth with claims you can’t back up—physically or factually.
Bobby Jindal has been running for President since the day he was elected Governor of Louisiana. It has been a long process of national campaigning and neglecting his duties of Governor. He has traveled the country in a non-stop effort to get recognized by the elite network of GOP activists and donors. Unfortunately, Jindal has been going nowhere fast as he does not even register in many polls and many commentators forget to mention that he is even running for President.
