There is no way you get elected and then serve as Governor of Louisiana without picking up so much baggage that you become unelectable at the national level. The corruption is overwhelming, and even if he's the one honest politician in the state, he'll be guilty by association.

If nothing else his record during Katrina will bring him down.

No. He tore his drawers yesterday by cutting Meals on Wheels. I mean, seriously, Meals on Wheels? What kind of inhuman assbot would even consider this? The program costs aren't high enough to warrant this.

Piyush should be a barber; the only he knows how to do is cut.

Even the idiot Louisianians who voted for him twice are jumping on the hate bandwagon. He was desperate for a Romney win so he could get a cush appointment and get the hell out of this state he's done everything to ruin and privatize.

[quote][R8]: Kathleen Blanco was the incompetent in office at the time of Katrina; it's easy to get them all mixed up

You're right, he wasn't Governor, my mistake, but remember the big lie he told about Katrina:

emember that story Bobby Jindal told in his big speech Tuesday night — about how during Katrina, he stood shoulder-to-shoulder with a local sheriff who was battling government red tape to try to rescue stranded victims?

Turns out it wasn’t actually, you know, true.

In the last few days, first Daily Kos, and then TPMmuckraker, raised serious questions about the story, based in part on the fact that no news reports we could find place Jindal in the affected area at the specific time at issue.

Jindal had described being in the office of Sheriff Harry Lee “during Katrina,” and hearing him yelling into the phone at a government bureaucrat who was refusing to let him send volunteer boats out to rescue stranded storm victims, because they didn’t have the necessary permits. Jindal said he told Lee, “that’s ridiculous,” prompting Lee to tell the bureaucrat that the rescue effort would go ahead and he or she could arrest both Lee and Jindal.

But now, a Jindal spokeswoman has admitted to Politico that in reality, Jindal overheard Lee talking about the episode to someone else by phone “days later.” The spokeswoman said she thought Lee, who died in 2007, was being interviewed about the incident at the time.

Aside from the fact that I thoroughly disagree with him, I find him repulsive. I couldn't bear looking at that cadaverous, hollow-eyed zombie for the two years he'd campaign, plus four more if by some strange trick of fate he won.

In general, I want to say this: Their hope of regaining their footing may be almost nil unless voters get a case of amnesia. Hopefully, Rove and the media pooh-bahs have learned that you can't lie and make people into something they aren't.

Jindal, Paul Ryan, all these guys have records and public utterances, and votes that show them consistently buying in to extremist views. The very views that were roundly repudiated in this election. Do they really think voters won't see thru the masquerade in four years?

It is my fervent hope that the Dems will finish what they started, and in 2014, get rid of the hold-over Tea Party and extremist Right Wing conservatives who have destroyed the party, and redefine theyselves with a new crop of rational people. Maybe in 12 yrs they might win a national election.

The Obama team is doing something it did not do after 2008. They're organizing and keeping their new lists of supporters active. I was on a huge call the other night with 30,000 of them.

We aren't giving up the high ground we've taken based on a bunch of liars with no convictions, no core, who want to change their tune out of expediency. The GOP is going to have to demonstrate thru deeds not just words. Or they haven't learned a damned thing.

The Repugs are delusional, but I've got to think that there are a few who still have their minds intact.

There is no way in hell that Santorum will ever be nominated in 2016. By then, the Repugs will have learned their lesson at least somewhat. They still may not win the presidency, but they know the future is Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Susanna Martinez, Jeb Bush, etc, etc.--none of whom I would want, but they are the future.

Santorum is damaged goods, out-of-touch and yesterday's news. Santorum himself may not think so, but even the social conservatives know that Santorum is going nowhere.
