But then, there is John Georges.
If multi-millionaire John Georges wants to take a ride in the spotlight (at least for the next sixty days or so), he will have to say “I’m in”.
Should he say aye, or “I” to the Mansion run there will be happy people who, if anything, want an election.
There will also be quite a number of others who will say “you’re kidding—Georges can’t win, so why try? Nobody can beat Bobby”.
Since Bayoubuzz broke the story Tuesday that Georges is giving serious consideration as to whether he would take the dive, I have heard from the elated who want him to take on the current Governor to those who believe his entry is, well, buffoonery.
For most of us, it will be a side show of politics; Another campaign; More excitement; And, yes, more people angry at one another as they take respective political sides.
To one person, however, the count down to the decision must be unnerving.
That person is no other than Governor Bobby Jindal who has more money in his election campaign than he can count.
From recent indications, he has over 8 million greenbacks due to well-earned campaigning on the roads of Louisiana and Elsewhere USA.
Should Georges decide against the run, he can save some of that money for a rainy day on the campaign trail and throw some dough to worthy republican causes.
Should Georges sign the qualifying papers and deposit his ten million dollars “chump change” for a chance to rent the keys to the fourth floor, all of that Jindal campaign money could be exhausted come late November.
That scenario would surely mean that the current Governor will spend more days in venues such as Houston or Philadelphia, rubbing hands with those wanting to help him fuel his future endeavors.
So, the clock is ticking and we can all guess…and bet.
Where would I put my two-bits?
I'm betting on Neaux.
