Jindal Picks Up Duck Dynasty Endorsement & Equality Condemnation

Bobby Jindal is no stranger to controversy. In fact, some pundits speculate that da Gov’ actively courts it. On Monday (4.13), Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson endorsed Bobby J’s unofficial bid for the POTUS position and Equality Louisiana slammed Jindal’s position on discrimination.

Gov' on Love: Jindal Weighs In On "Religious Freedom" Bills

The Louisiana legislature is about to convene their annual session and a massive budget gap is looming. So naturally, Bobby Jindal is taking to the airwaves to promote the possibility of a presidential campaign. Jindal appeared on Meet the Press today to weigh in on “religious freedom” bills as well as his rumored bid for the mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

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.

Straw Man? Jindal Fails at CPAC Poll

Bobby Jindal refuses to state whether he has decided to run for POTUS or if he just likes to visit Iowa, New Hampshire, and conservative retreats. Da Gov’ still found himself running in an election this weekend. Jindal was candidate in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)’s straw poll and he did not fare well.

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.
