Jindal-collageIs it that the out-of-state candidates for the Press Secretary of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal so much smarter or more knowledgeable about Louisiana and Louisiana-centric issues than those individuals who were born and bred in the state?

Or, is Jindal pursuing his policy of ensuring more people enter the state than leave?

Or, by chance, could it be an eye on the national campaign as in Presidential or national TV air-time for the governor?

This afternoon, the Jindal communications office, released the below:

 Today, Governor Bobby Jindal announced that Sarah Haley will serve as press secretary. Her duties will include handling press inquiries and traveling with Governor Jindal to press events.

Sarah Haley most recently served as a special projects producer for ABC World News with Diane Sawyer. Previously, she served as chief spokesperson to Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential Nominee, Mitt Romney, during the 2012 presidential campaign. Prior to that role, she spent four years in the United States Senate as press secretary to U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). She began her career at Fox News Channel in New York City, working on various news programs, including the O'Reilly Factor.

So, Governor Jindal can't find any Louisiana talent for Press Sec.? Why pick someone who worked for Mrs. Romney, Fox News, unless, well unless??
Can you imagine  the next press conference, ...Ms. Press Secretary, could you please tell us where Lafayette is? Monroe? Shreveport? The Capitol?

No, Ms. Press Secretary, not the one in Washington DC.

Interesting pick for the governor who kept preaching the "Louisiana Way" rather than the "Washington Way", remember?

Has Louisiana lost its way?
