Does this guy really want to be the sacrificial lamb in 2012? Because nobody’s going to blame Obama for this economic downturn (except hardcore Friedmanites), and if Obama creates 2.5 million jobs in the next few years, he’s got 2012 in the bag. In any event, here’s more from CNN: (CNN) — Bobby Jindal’s in […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Iowa, Jindal, Louisiana, Republicans

If he’s truly thinking about running in 2012, I think that’s a mistake since he’ll literally be 41 years old at the time. Then again, that’s what they said about Obama a couple years ago, although Obama had more legislative experience when he ran than Jindal will have in 2012. And actually, both Huckabee and […]
