Bobby Jindal, What? Me Worry?


Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal made the GOP response to Obama's speech the other night. Jindal is the latest in a transparent move by the Republicans to demonstrate how "inclusive" their party is. They thought that the nomination of Sarah Palin as VP candidate would lure Hillary voters. They were wrong of course, Hillary voters were by and large appalled by Palin's lack of knowledge and gravitas.
Then the GOP selected Michael Steele as the head of the national GOP. Maybe he is black but he is still far right and wont appeal to liberal and moderate voters.
Now Jindal is put out front on national TV to further show the "big tent" of the GOP.
Problem is Jindal is a light weight without any real ideas on the issues.
In his speech he said that the monitoring of volcanoes was wasteful spending in Obama's budget. I bet Sarah Palin wouldn't agree with that given that Mt. Redoubt, in Alaska, is being watched and is possibly going to have a major eruption some time soon.
I bet Jindal would not want the National Weather Service to stop monitoring hurricanes!

Hurricanes are terrifying! The storm itself is scary enough but the aftermath is in a way the worst part of it.
The hurricane season is drawing near and once again everyone who lives along the Gulf Coast and the Atlantic will be on pins and needles when these storms form.

I penned much the same on my blog. The volcano thing was, well, just weird.

The whole thing was terrible to watch, as well.

I don't know WHAT Jindal was thinking of filming this in a dark hallway, as well. Not to mention that howdy folks approach which really isn't his style. The man does have a brain, but he didn't show that at all.

The whole ordeal was, well, painful.
