Governor Jindal has frequently hit the luncheon circuits, the legislative chambers and other speaking engagements stating, “The national debt will reach over $14 trillion this year – $26 trillion dollars in a decade’s time. Make no mistake about what that means this year. Just this year’s debt level alone equates to over $45,000 for every American. $100,000 for every American family.
Is Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal in a subtle political war with U.S. Senator David Vitter to control the future of the Louisiana Republican Party and the state’s political space? Are we witnessing a Godfather-like family fight on the bayou?
It is no secret that there has been frayed feelings between the current Governor and junior Senator despite Vitter’s rather unusual endorsement of Jindal.
It’s now official.
Our 21st Century version of Scarlet Letter’s Hester Quinn, Casey Anthony, will be “freed at last” next Wednesday.
There has been much talk about making book deals, getting death threats, being on top of the most-hated list, and being a proud symbol of the nation’s most dysfunctional family.
Is America taking a White Turn in its upcoming national elections?
According to the Daily Beast, Neo Nazi, former Louisiana legislator, white Supremacist David Duke will be touring 25 states to explore how much support he can garner for a potential presidential bid. The publication has also claiming that “Duke-lites” are priming to run for various elective offices in growing numbers.
Vitter is now on record endorsing Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who was kind of on record not endorsing the Louisiana U.S. Senator and other Republicans Congressional candidates last year.
It sure was nice of Bobby and gang. In fact, it was" real class".
Or was it?
The Jefferson Report filed an article on Monday stating that the Jindal campaign felt so taken back by the Governor’s only opponent’s appeal for money for her special-ed classroom that the Jindal campaign sought fit to donate $5,000 smackaroonies to help Tara Hollis’s class reach greater educational heights.
When I first read the Jefferson Report article, I thought to myself, huh? Why?

It was the same but a different New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin.
Yesterday, he was facing the same media with whom he had a rocky relationship during the last four years of his 8-year two-term administration.
This time, Nagin was not trying to sell an idea to move the city forward but was promoting his book, Katrina Secrets.
Twitter today: Louisiana Sen. Vitter pointing out that a CBO plan shows why Obama and Harry Reid should embrace "conservative spending cuts plans". New felony charges against former New Orleans Public Belt exec, Jim Bridger. Legislature saying goodbye to Louisiana Medical Center oversight.
One of the big debates in the Louisiana blogosphere today is questioning Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s intelligence or at least her honesty.
Bachmann made a big hit at the Republican Southern Leadership Conference in New Orleans this Friday as she did last week on the CNN Republican Party Presidential debate.
However, at the conference, Kevin Allman of the Gambit tried to ask her a very simple question about a statement she made while on a 2006 panel discussion when she tried to support Intelligent Design or some say “Creationism” in schools.
