July 22, 2009: Bobby Jindal: Wall Street Journal: How to Make Health-Care Reform Bipartisan
Piyush "Bobby" Jindal (born June 10, 1971) is the 55th and current Governor of Louisiana and the Vice Chairman of the Republican Governors Association. Jindal was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to immigrants from India. Prior to entering politics, Jindal studied for a Bachelor of Science in biology and public policy at Brown University from 1988 to 1991 and then a M.Litt in political science from New College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar. He worked for McKinsey & Company and interned for Representative Jim McCrery of Louisiana. In 1996, Governor Murphy Foster appointed Jindal Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, and in 1999 he was appointed President of the University of Louisiana System. In 2001, Jindal was appointed as the principal adviser to Tommy Thompson, the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services by President George W. Bush.
He first ran for governor in 2003 and won a plurality in the nonpartisan blanket primary but lost in the general election to Democrat Kathleen Blanco. He then won a seat in the United States House of Representatives in the 2004 elections. The second Indian American in Congress, he was re-elected in 2006. He ran for Governor again in 2007 and secured an outright majority in the first round of balloting. He was re-elected in a landslide in 2011. Politically conservative, Jindal opposes abortion and same-sex marriage, while supporting gun rights, a border fence and teaching evolution with critiques that may include intelligent design.
On The Record: Mar 7, 2014: Matt Vasilogambros of National Journal reports "Bobby Jindal Thinks Obama Is Stupid" and it comes with the tagline: "The president has been called many things, but dumb is a new one." The tagline kind of surprised me because I am pretty sure Obama has been referred to as "dumb" many times. The American Thinker (Aug 2011) implied he was dumb ("How Stupid is Obama?") and writes "Within weeks of the inauguration, sometime between "I won" and the Air Force One trip to New York for a single night's outing with Michelle, it became clear that the American Solomon was no better than average. And in the immortal words of Harvey Pekar, "Average is dumb." " Glenn Harlan Reynolds (USA Today) in a column titled "Obama is a laughing stock " write just last year "Our diplomacy is a joke, our president is a laughing stock, our enemies are emboldened, and we've still got over three years of this to go." In an article last year Kevin Drum (Mother Jones) titled an article "Barack Obama Is Dumb and Lazy" but seems to spend the article trying to defend Obama as not being dumb, even though he, thoug maybe meant sarcastically, points out that "Obama was too dumb to write his own autobiography. Obama was an affirmative action baby at Harvard Law. Obama can barely string three words together without a teleprompter. Obama is too lazy to attend national security briefings. Obama gives soaring speeches but there's nothing behind them. Obama lives a life of sybaritic ease punctuated mostly by golf dates and basketball games." However, had not someone before Drum referred to Obamas as dumb, then the article would not have needed to have been written. The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin wrote about "Obama’s stupid advice on pot ." Jason Linkins (Huffington Post) reminisced last year about "Barack Obama's Super-Dumb 2006 Debt Ceiling Speech, Remembered." Right Wing News sent readers to an article onThe Blaze about Obama flunking geography with Jay Leno with "DUMB OBAMA Flunks Basic Geography On Leno." The Free Republic lists some 'Obama-is-so-dumb jokes" as a response to the tired old "Bush is so dumb jokes." (The same ones most liberal swear never happened because they NEVER disrespected George W Bush). Wonkette, sarcastically of course becasue thaths what Wonkette does, titled an article "Haw Haw, Dumb Jerk Barack Obama Cannot Even Stand A Little Rain, What A Dumb Jerk," but they were referring to some information from the Weekly Standard and Drudge Report and placed a title that was not use by the Weekly Standard or Drudge. Splice Today had an article in 2011 and asked "Is Barack Obama Dumb?" But the author quickly decided on Obama and Rick Perry that "Of course Obama isn’t illiterate or Bush-dumb because as Jesse Louis Jackson once said, “God doesn’t make junk,” and the intelligence-challenged just aren’t allowed near Harvard, much less become editor of that university’s Law Review. And man, he sure can deliver (teleprompter notwithstanding) an inspiring speech! Let’s get this out the way now: in my view, without meeting either man, it’s silly to call either Obama or Perry “dumb." Bill Maher called him dumb and it was, of course, recorded: "Video of Bill Maher calling Barack Obama a dumb nigger" Of course, Maher always claims he was just kidding when he is called out of stupid stuff, but fully endorses anything he can get away with otherwise. Roger Ailes, according to one of his biographies referred to Obama as "lazy" and used "dumb" to describe Joe Biden and not just "dumb" but "dumb as an ashtray." Over and over again Obama policies have been referred to as dumb or stupid. The question then can be asked do dumb polices get created by dumb people? Personally, I lean toward most likely, unless it's done in Congress then it's a group of dumb people who end up creating really dumb policies.
Comments can be made here: Is Barack Obama Dumb?
News ON The Record: Apr 6, 2014: The House Appropriations Committee has been conducting an agency-by-agency review of the governor's 2014-15 spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Several committee members say they don't like what they've seen.
They criticize Jindal's budget as over-reaching with new spending, suggesting it could set up long-term problems for future governors to face.
The Jindal administration has assured lawmakers the dollars the governor proposed for his budget are accessible. They insist the plans represent a proper method for budgeting.
But then there are the concerns about later years, with estimates that Jindal's budget uses as much as $900 million in short-term financing sources that won't be on hand a year later. (SOURCE: Associated Press: Times-Picayune: "AP Analysis: Gaps start to show in Bobby Jindal budget plan")
