    Everything I have heard about him has been positive.
    I voted for Gov. Jindal and think he will do great things for the state of Louisiana.

    Let me set the record straight on the pay raise. The Gov. agreed to the pay raise and in exchange the legislature would pass his reforms. The reforms were passed and the shit hit the fan when taxpayers found out that legislators would wind up doubling their salaries. Presently, legislators in this state have the second highest pay scale in the south. The Gov. said he would not sign the pay raise but after so many days it would become law. However, with the outpouring of discontent leading to recalls of him and several other legislators, he changed his mind and vetoed it. I am hoping that these Democratic politicians will not hold it against him. Another Repub.Gov., Buddy Roemer, tried to ramrod legislation down the throats of the Democ. controlled legislature over 20 years ago and it turned into nothing but chaos.

    Jindal would be a tough candidate, but theres no way the ignorant Republican base will come out for him. Definitely qualified, but very unelectable.

    You may well be right, but that .5% or so shouldn't make any big difference.

    In actual dollars, President Obamaís $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. Itís no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obamaís own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    I bet you can't walk and chew gum at the same time.

    Bobby Jindal won the election with 54% of the vote in a 12 person race!! He is an immensely talented man and a fantastic campaigner. Believe me, he will go far. unlike you.

    In a head to head debate with Obama, Jindal would wipe the floor up with him. If Obama wins the Presidency, the next Prez will be Jindal in 2012.

    I like Jindal but the way he speaks is too mechanical, it kind of gives that Romney slick impression like it's all rehearsed, no one can talk casually anymore. A small gripe though.

    I get that impression also when he gives a prepared speech but off the cuff like in an interview, he comes across less mechanical. Lets face it, I don't see another Ronald Reagan anywhere.
