Have you seen the Bobby Jindal for President announcement video?  The video presents Governor Jindal as a change-agent.  According to his campaign:

What would happen if we elected a President who was unafraid to speak the hard truths, and who had the horsepower to tackle complicated problems? What if we elected a conservative who has the courage to make the big urgent changes?

We tried it the other way, and look where it has got us.

What if we tried something different?

Let's endorse our own conservative principles, and not back down.

If you watch one video this week, make sure it is this one:



A video that is not very flattering to either Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal or a candidate vying for his seat, US Senator David Vitter, was announced last week equating Jindal to Vitter,   

BATON ROUGE, LA --- On the eve of Bobby Jindal’s long-awaited presidential announcement, eight years in the making, Gumbo PAC has released a new video today highlighting that Louisiana is in for more of the same if David Vitter becomes the next governor.

“It’s like crawfish and cold beer, some things in Louisiana just go together. That includes DavidVitter and Bobby Jindal,” said Gumbo PAC Chairman Trey Ourso. “The same my-way-or-the-highway approach won’t get us out of the mess Bobby Jindal has left Louisiana in.”

“Both Bobby Jindal and David Vitter were staunch supporters of Common Core before flipping for political reasons. They both owe their allegiance to the same Washington lobbyist. And Jindal andVitter both promised to focus on their current political job, but instead are off campaigning for a new one,” Ourso continued. “The only difference between the two seems to be that David Vitter comes with more baggage.”

“If you like Bobby Jindal’s politics, you’ll just love David Vitter,” said Ourso.

Gumbo PAC is not affiliated with any candidate or political party.


Governor Jindal might not have wanted the type of publicity he received after his presidential candidacy announcement.  But, leave it to Jon Stewart to throw arrows.  A video you won't want to miss.


David Vitter has been creating a political personam as a man who won't chicken out.  However, the day after the US Supreme Court ruling legaling same sex marriages, he reportedly did take out chicken, from the controversial Fil-A-Chick and then posted the image on his twitter account.  Good idea?
