Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Jindal Pushes Iran Letter


Bobby Jindal does not have much foreign policy experience, an impediment in the forthcoming Republican primaries. So, da Gov’ is working hard to vocally insert himself into the ongoing debates about matters abroad. Recently, Jindal has set his crosshairs on the G.O.P. cause celebre, Senator Tom Cotton’s letter to Iran.


Brothers in Harm: Bobby J Won't Condemn Giuliani


After former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that President Obama “doesn’t love America,” he drew plenty of fire including condemnations from his own party. Although Bobby Jindal’s recent trips to Iowa and England seem like an effort to fall into line with the G.O.P. before the primaries, he did not go with the flow this time. Instead, he tacitly supported the Mayor.

Jindal Travels to Europe; Talks Immigration, Terror, & Clinton



Where in the world is Bobby Jindal? Louisiana’s governor has drawn criticism at home for his frequent trips out of state. Like many 2016 hopefuls, da’ Gov has been spending time in Iowa kissing babies and eating corn dogs. Now, Bobby J has hopped across the pond to traverse Europe. On Wednesday (1.14), Jindal’s office also leaked the text of a speech that he will deliver in London. The remarks tackle faith, terror, and his heritage… and perhaps the next election.


Candid State? Jindal Slams Obama Foreign Policy at AEI Speech (Text)

Child of the Corn: Jindal Hits Iowa

The 2016 election is approaching, and Lousiana Governor Bobby Jindal is spending a lot of time in Iowa, the early caucusing heart of the cornbelt. This weeked, the 'Gov was looking like a candidate kissing babies at the Iowa State Fair, fielding questions at meet n' greets, and preaching to the faithful at an evangelical conference in Ames.


La. Legislature Votes to Move Up 2016 Presidential Primary


by Meg Barbor

The RLC and renewed Hillary chatter have minds turning to 2016 this week. Never to be left out of a political conversation, Louisiana is among those jockeying for primary position. The state House and Senate sent legislation to Governor Jindal which would enhance the Boot’s position on the 2016 presidential primary calendar. The bill passed the Senate and House with no opposition and will now head to Gov. Bobby Jindal's desk.


Mary Landrieu Slams Jindal on Health Care


After seeing Governor Jindal's Sunday appearance on Meet the Press, Senior Senator Mary Landrieu had some harsh words towards Bobby J's stance on Medicaid. The poster boy for conservative politics is telling the feds to keep their money to themselves, a move that Landrieu believes is more in the Gov.'s interest than those of his constituents. At a press conference today, Landrieu accused Bobby J of putting the 2016 presidential election before the interests of his own state.


Trump Calls Jindal's 'Stupid' GOP Claim, Gov Raises Him a 'Get Your Head Examined'
