WASHINGTON (CNN) - It was billed as a "coming out party" for one of the GOP's most promising young stars.
Gov. Bobby Jindal seemed "over-coached and over-rehearsed," CNN's Candy Crowley said.
But after nearly universal criticism was heaped on Gov. Bobby Jindal's high-profile response to President Obama's address to Congress Tuesday night, the Louisiana Republican may be wishing he had stayed home.
The criticisms came from all sides of the political spectrum, including from those in conservative circles who have promoted the 36-year-old governor as the GOP's most likely advocate to bring the party back from the brink of irrelevance.
