And replace it with a revenue neutral sales tax? The story… “The bottom line is that for too long, Louisiana’s workers and small businesses have suffered from having a state tax structure that is too complex and that holds back economic prosperity,” Jindal said in a statement released by his office. “It’s time to change […]

Earlier today I posted about Jindal’s suspect Hurricane Katrina story and now his handlers are revising the record. First, the clip… And now, the truth from Politico: The spokeswoman, Melissa Sellers, said the story Jindal told in his response to Obama actually took place some days later in Lee’s office — though still in Katrina’s […]

Did Jindal Make Up A Story In That Speech?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Bad Decisions, Jindal

Another unforced error from that widely panned rebuttal. First, the original story in his own words… During Katrina, I visited Sheriff Harry Lee, a Democrat and a good friend of mine. When I walked into his makeshift office I’d never seen him so angry. He was yelling into the phone: ‘Well, I’m the Sheriff and […]

Looks like Rush really thinks that Jindal could be the guy to lead conservatives out of the wilderness. Otherwise he never would have gone this far out on a limb to defend such an indefensible performance. I wonder if we’ll start to see some backtracking about Jindal’s speech from the right-wing media after Limbaugh’s call […]

David Brooks On Bobby Jindal

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Jindal, Republicans

I don’t want to beat up too much on the Louisiana governor because he did have a thankless task, but…whoa. I mean, that was painful, and not just the style. Sure, we can make fun of his delivery, but the tired old ideas he was proposing and the political points he attempted to score failed […]

More React To Jindal’s “No 2012″ Talk

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Jindal, Palin

I think it’s a very smart move (like asking to not be vetted for VP this year), and so does Kevin Drum I’d say this confirms that Jindal isn’t an idiot. Sure, it’s possible that Barack Obama is going to crash and burn and turn 2012 into a Republican year. But what are the odds? […]
