We've already got a national showdown of Jindal vs. Obama – and it's not even 2012. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, widely seen as a potential 2012 GOP presidential contender, will deliver the Republican response following President Obama’s nationally televised Address to the Nation on Feb. 24, Republican congressional leaders announced in a joint statement today. “Gov. Jindal embodies what I have long said: the Republican Party must not be simply the party of ‘opposition,’ but the party of better solutions,” said House Minority John Boehner. “His stewardship of the state of Louisiana, dedication to reforming government, and commitment to bringing forth new and innovative ideas make him a leader not just within the Republican Party, but in our nation as a whole.” Jindal has indicated he's not interested in running for president, but he's certainly taking on several high-profile Washington speaking roles lately. Jindal has also been tapped to headline the National Republican Congressional Committee’s March Dinner – a forum that in past years was given to President Bush.
We will see if Bobby can actually put forward real conservative ideas to counter the socialist pacifism of Obama , Nancy and Harry. Will Jindal actually place ideas in easily understood calculations which would show why the Porkulas is not stimulation except for the growth of Socialist Govt.? Will he give some plan that many Pubs would agree upon in a way that even the non-producers in the nation will understand why class envy, fear, and lust for power by the liberals is not the way to deal with a recession? If he does, he could change the scenario for some Pub comebacks in the House elections as well as changing the minds of so many of the welfare mentality people that are worshipping at the Faux Messiah's altar. I hope he does. Some one other than Rush and Sean have to stand up for free enterprise.
