Rising Star

Some consider him to be the Republican party’s next great leader … perhaps President. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. When you hear him in this clip explain what he would do to stimulate the economy … and why he will not take most of the stimulus money … you’ll understand why.


Jindal also took issue with today’s summit on the budge deficit . Says Jindal, addressing the deficit after spending a trillion dollars is like closing the barn door after the horse is gone.

    I liked this guy when he was campaigning, and I like him more even now.

    I think Louisianans don't get the credit they deserve for electing a man of color… It was a little strange seeing stereotypical good ol' boys waiving their Jindal signs.  But it's the south, and Jindal is a conservative, so the MSM didn't make a big deal out of it.

    Jindal is superb.  Did you notice that he was answering these complex questions without teleprompters or advance notice of the questions?  Unlike our president, who stumbles worse than Biden when flying solo.

    He seems nice. He is actually looking past the immediate needs and onward to the future. God bless him (an I'm and atheist)
