    That is what we need Jindal and Haley as two politicians with heritage from a country with over a billion poor people. He won't even get the :LOUISIANA VOTE. Then again we seem to be headed in that direction regardless of which party is in power.

  5. Republicans Are The American Taliban

    Where is his original birth certificate?? Why is he afraid to produce it?? He won't be elegible to run in Arizona without it. Why hasn't he called Sarah Palin for solutions to the oil spill?? What has he done??

    Jindal's political campaign is a political game. He was there when they gave BP the get go to drill. what he is trying to do is trying to clean his own mess. I do not understand politicians trying to make a come back on the backs of the people who voted for them and did not tell them the truth.

    Regarding the oil spill, Jindal has done nothing but stand and talk about how Obama does nothing but stand around and talk.

    What a joke, oil is still gushing but Jindal's political life is on a comeback. This is no more than double talk when the people of Louisiana have already stated they don't want politics playing out during this time. You've been had people.

  9. Bobby Jindal, aka Palin with a Penis

    And both have the same chance of ever seeing the inside of the Oval Office other than as guests.

    Besides, he would make 3 "ragheads" in office and we know what republikkklans think of blacks and Indian-Americans in positions of power.

    While I feel for the people of Louisiana and know that they desperately need help, I find it amusing that Big Bad Bobby is demanding gov'ment help. Aren't you one of the anti-government types who want the government out of your life? Anyway, God Bless the people of Louisiana and all of the Gulf area. May this mess be cleaned up and things returned to nature clean and whole.

    Why is this man not out there helping clean up this mess instead of flapping his gums. I see person after person flapping their gums daily instead of helping clean up this mess.
    They talk about the heat and the workers that are there work 20 minutes on 40 minutes off. Why can't they rotate people so someone is working all the time, has anyone ever thought of that, WHY OF COURSE NOT, there brains don't comprehend that you could do such a thing.
    They sit at their roundtables discussing all the bad things happening instead of picking up a rake or shovel and getting rid of the stuff.
    I live in the great state of Tennessee and the first week of May we had terrible floods, the people here didn't belly ache and complain they got to work. Our governor and the mayors of these towns all spent hours upon hours assuring that these people got what they needed when they needed it. The people who were not affected have pitched in and gutted homes and helped to start the rebuilding process People from all over this country have come to help. THey are working in mold, asbestos and who knows what else they are not complaining and its dag gum hot here too. WHAT IS WRONG WITH LA?

    So let me get this straight; When Jindal gets angry about the spill he's considered the people's hero, but when Obama does it's political posturing? The nutbaggers are really losing it.

    Hey Bobby...look in the mirror, you idiot...you are BROWN! You'll never get the endorsement from the GOP.

    Jindal is so shifty he could play ping-pong with himself.

    Anyone watching this guy on the TV knows he's playing for the cameras. It's great that he's out there pointing out where the oil is coming ashore: I think as a Governor that should be part of his JOB. However I don't think that makes him qualified for anything beyond what he's doing now. I would love to see him go up against Obama though. Besides having to get into a cat fight with Palin, Romney, Huckabee and 200 other people for the Republican nomination, he just is terrible at public speaking. Obama would make mincemeat out of this guy.

    Obviously a very smart man. But he is the governor of Louisiana. What else was he expected to say and do. Still he's not President Obama!

    That's what all his parading about in front of the cameras has been about – talk about BP staging photo-ops – that pales compared to this one – ok Jinny pick up a handful of sludge and look presidential – pictures may work for this one – but when he opens his mouth... what a joke

    June 12, 2010 02:38 pm at 2:38 pm |

    What has he done to warrent a comeback besides criticize the president? What action haws he taken to minimize the oil spill or the impact to the shores? Cnn please stop trying to promote the GOP, especially when they haven't done anything to deserve it.
