Bobby Jindal blames 'leaders across the board'

Oct 3 2013, 12:06am CDT | by IANS

Washington, Oct 3 (IANS) Louisiana's Indian American Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential contender, has blamed "leaders across the board" in general and President Barack Obama in particular for the government shutdown.

Washington, Oct 3 — Louisiana's Indian American Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential contender, has blamed "leaders across the board" in general and President Barack Obama in particular for the government shutdown.

"I think the American people look at what's happening in DC and see that leaders across the board are not doing what they were elected to do," said Jindal, who also serves as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA).

National politicians - and, chiefly, Obama - were "not solving the big challenges, the structural challenges, facing our country," he lamented, according to Politico, an influential Washington news site.

Jindal also attacked Obama for trying to play the role of "victim-in-chief," blaming others instead of solving problems.

"He likes to play the role of victim. That's not very presidential," he said. "This president apparently has time to golf. I wish he'd find time to work with Congress."

Gandhi said that he shares the congressional Republicans' firm opposition to the Affordable Care Act, and that only "structural changes" to the legislative branch of government will produce better results for voters.

The sweeping changes he suggested included: a balanced budget amendment to the US Constitution, term limits for members of Congress, a part-time legislature and requiring a legislative super majority to either raise taxes or increase spending at a faster rate than population growth.

"All of Washington, DC, is dysfunctional," he was quoted as saying. "It's not just a matter of who's in leadership or personalities or who's in power."

"As governors, we're no longer content to outsource the definition of our brand, or what it means to be a Republican, to Washington DC," he added.

RGA would be launching digital ads Thursday touting the work of Republican governors in pioneering "conservative solutions" in the states - a sharp difference from the current gridlock in DC.

The RGA digital campaign dubbed the "American Comeback Campaign," will eventually include video appearances by all of the country's 30 Republican governors, Jindal said.

The first video features South Carolina's Indian-American Governor Nikki Haley, Ohio governor John Kasich, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, New Mexico Governor. Susana Martinez and Jindal himself.

The left's tactics – a personal example

Nov 3 2014 6:55pm CST | Source: WND

Last week, I was a speaker and the emcee at a rally convened by the Republican Party and WLSS, the Sarasota station that carries my radio show. The other speakers were Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, and Ralph Reed, founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. I spoke for about 25 minutes, about two minutes of which drew national attention from the left. I spoke about “the divisions that the Democrats have engaged in making in this cou ...

Ebola Is Good

Nov 3 2014 2:28pm CST | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The Ebola virus is the best thing to happen to American politicians in years. Ebola has done what neither war, climate change, nor economic meltdown have accomplished. It has united our politicians in action because Ebola is bad. Ebola threatens America. It came dangerously close to infecting a King Charles Spaniel in Texas. Like that nerd in grade school who always raises his hand, no one likes the Ebola virus. Our polit ...

Does Satire News Influence Elections?

Oct 31 2014 9:22pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

As Election Day looms, The Daily Show ramped up their media coverage by heading to Texas for a week of shows entitled Democalypse 2014: South by South Mess. A Comedy Central show relocated to broadcast on-the-spot election coverage. That should strike us as strange, right? But in all likelihood, it doesn't. The idea that a satire news show would take election coverage so seriously no longer comes as a ...

Politicians Are No Scientists On Climate Change, But They're Happy To Give Medical Opinions On Ebola

Oct 21 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

"I'm not a scientist, but …" has become something of a cliché among politicians who want to weigh in on climate science without actually having to say whether they believe it. But when it comes to Ebola, a number of the same not-a-scientist politicians have been more than happy to provide their medical opinions, as Think Progress documented Monday. Many of these politicians have made fa ...

Obama Fails to Protect Us, Again

Oct 7 2014 1:13pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Of all the examples of incompetence and failure to protect Americans that the Obama Administration has displayed, its failure to keep Ebola out of our country may be the worst. Obama’s number-one job is to keep dangerous people from coming into America, and he has flunked the test. Ebola is a particularly horrible disease. Infected patients face a death rate of 25 to 90 percent. Long ago, our country designated Ellis Island as a place where ...

They're Blowing It Again

Oct 6 2014 1:43pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

A little known fact is that back in the early days of the New Deal, many liberals opposed what the Roosevelt administration was doing to deal with the Depression. It was not that they embraced greater capitalism; rather, they feared the expansion of the federal government. Their frame of reference was the dismal twenties, when the Feds had pursued repressive policies, and liberals dreaded their continuation. To these stal ...
