Bobby Jindal still deciding on 2016

Oct 27 2013, 10:44pm CDT | by IANS

Washington, Oct 28 (IANS) Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, an emerging Republican party star, believes it's still way too early to announce whether or not he's running for president in 2016.

Washington, Oct 28 — Louisiana's Indian American Governor Bobby Jindal, an emerging Republican party star, believes it's still way too early to announce whether or not he's running for president in 2016.

"I don't know what I'm going to do in 2016," Jindal, the head of the Republican Governors Association and a former

member of the US House of Representatives, told Fox News Sunday. Jindal said he wants to focus on "winning the war of ideas" before making a definitive decision on his presidential ambitions. "As Republicans, we have a lot of races we have to win before then," he said.

"We've got to be more than the 'Party of No,'" said Jindal, who recently launched a new programme called "America Next" to help form a new conservative message for the party.

Jindal highlighted the association's initiative that revolves around "detailed policy solutions" to problems like failing education systems and high unemployment, which he hopes will erase the perception of the Republican Party as "the party of no."

"We need to show voters conservative principles work. And to see them working, you don't need to look any further than our state capitals," Jindal said.

Jindal said Republicans "don't need to change our principles" or "become a second liberal party," but he said the Republican party needs to focus on having a more positive message." Jindal said shortly after the 2012 elections that his party needed to stop being "the stupid party" - a reference to unhelpful things that certain Republican candidates said on the campaign trail.

The Stupid Party? Which One?

Jul 11 2014 12:19pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Sen. Marco Rubio Speaks At The National Press Club
It seems to be a growing belief that the Republican Party has been hijacked by anti-science ideas and that somehow the Democratic Party is the party of scientific sanity, but the distinction may not be as clear cut as out might think. Or is it? Although few serious Democratic candidates take anti-science positions as major planks of their candidacy, it's fairly common for Republican candidates to do so. "We've got to stop being the stupid pa ...

Why Aren't We Doing More to Keep Women Safe From Guns?

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal addresse
The tragic shooting in Santa Barbara last week sparked an important conversation: why aren't we doing more to keep women safe? For too long, women have been left out of the discussion about gun violence. We're 54 percent of the electorate, but only 19 percent of Congress. We account for only 24 percent of all state legislators nationwide. Clearly, the laws allowing our country's culture of gun vio ...

Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards Presented By MaxMara, BMW, Perrier-Jouet And South Coast Plaza - Red Carpet
By John Aman The right to try experimental, potentially life-saving drugs is coming soon to a state near you, giving fresh hope to terminally ill patients who have run out of treatment options. Louisiana became the nation’s second state to join the budding “right-to-try” revolution yesterday when Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a bill allowing terminally ill patients to access medications that could save their lives, even if they are not approved by the FDA. “Every life is unique ...

Rick Perry Calls Texas Legislature Back For Special Second Session
In a 2012 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that states could decide to take the Medicaid expansion or not. In a purely political, but predictable move, Republican governor after Republican governor chose to say no to Medicaid expansion for their states even though their community hospitals are bursting at the seams. Why would any elected official turn down free health care dollars for its citizens? These 24 Re ...
