Born To Run: Jindal Courts Conservative PACs Amidst Budget Crisis


Bobby Jindal is often criticized for spending nearly as much time out of Louisiana as he does in state. But, Bobby J is not a man to be burdened with critics. On the eve of a budget crisis, the Governor has lined up a series of speaking engagements at heavyweight conservative gatherings. Louisiana Democrats are not impressed.


Winter is Coming: Bobby J Issues State of Emergency


The weather was great when New Orleans needed it most, but with Carnival behind us, the forecast has gotten worse. In NOLA, this means bundling up for colder weather. For our neighbors in the central and north parts of the boot, the outlook is so severe that Governor Jindal has declared a State of Emergency for Louisiana.


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.


A for Effort? Bobby J Rolls Out National Education Plan


Bobby Jindal is no stranger to the education debate. He also knows a thing or two about setting up a national campaign without declaring a bid for office. Today, da Gov’ combined the habits, rolling out his plan to “fix” education in America at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington D.C.


No Go Hone: Jindal Backs Questionable Claims on Islam in Europe


Like many presumed presidential hopefuls, Bobby Jindal suffered from criticism that he lacked foreign policy experience as a governor. So, Bobby J took a trip to Europe. Now, da Gov’ is at the center of an international controversy centered around the existence (or lack thereof) of “no-go zones.” Many media outlets are backing down from previous reports on the topic, but Jindal is doubling down.


Dissonance Abroad

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.


Op-Ed: Let It Glow

Positive Christmas Cards for Louisiana



Tiny Daiquiri is busy running errands and fixing things this week, so his mom has taken over his column Rather than get all the-sky-falling and democracy-is-failing, she has decided to put a positive spin on things and write Christmas cards to some of Tiny’s favorite targets.


Op-Ed: Pray, Don't Tell

Jindal Consulting Providence Before a Presidential Run



Don’t look now, but God is working overtime in Louisiana.

The Saints are looking increasingly incapable of producing a late-season miracle and the Pope confirmed that he’s coming to America in the near future. So consider yourself absolved of all sin if you missed the OTHER theological news of the past few days. Bobby Jindal transitioned from rejecting a run for the presidency to “mulling it over" about a year ago. Now he has reached DefCon 2; he's officially “praying on it.”


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


Bobby J has not officially declared a run for President, but da Gov’ sure looks like a candidate. Jindal has made a political pilgrimage to Iowa recently, and on Monday (10.6) he tried to establish some foreign policies bonafides in an address to the conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute. 


Abortion Tug of War

Judge Issues Injunction, States Across the 5th Grapple With New Restrictions



Federal Judge John deGravelle of Baton Rouge issued a temporary injunction on Monday (9.1), limiting full enforcement of Louisiana's Unsafe Abortion Act. Enforcement of the law could result in the abrupt closure of abortion clinics across the state. While Louisiana doctors must continue to seek hospital admitting privileges, similar laws have been struck down in Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas. The struggle over abortion rights in the Gulf South is nowhere near over.
